Near Deauville, this 17th century manor, built on 15th century plantings, was restored under its current owners, courtesy of Monuments Historiquessanctioned craftsmen. “This property has a typical Norman architecture, with flawless design and vertical half-timbering on the facade, stresses Pierre Flore. Parts of the manor and its basement were built by the dukes of Harcourt.” Said basement houses the 90-sq m former English-style armoury, which opens on the garden, featuring black and white flint walls and stone floors. Providing close to 750 sq m of living space, the manor has a bright 90-sq m wideclearance living room on the ground floor, with two stone fireplaces. An entrance, a cloakroom, a small living room, a dining room accommodating 16 guests, a kitchen, six bedrooms and a Master room round out the amenities. Various vintage elements have been retained. Facing southwest, the manor stands in the heart of a 12-ha park with beds of hydrangea and rhododendron, an outdoor pool, a 250-sq m outbuilding and stalls in perfect condition.
