Property information

Lovely and authentic Norman manor house.

Lovers of history and old stones, here is this authentic manor, very rare to have belonged to the family of Pierre Corneille, famous Norman playwright.

The notion of manor is linked to the feudal system which designated the residence of the lord, where people went to pay homage to him in his home, a free man owner of a fief, whatever the size. After the revolution, this Normandy property became a mansion in the middle of a farmhouse. Modest in scope, our mansion has remained noble through the preservation of its original materials. Faithful to the construction techniques of the Pays de Caux, it has a solid base in sandstone, flint and brick. The elevation consists of a highly sought-after piece of wood with broken sticks and Saint Andrew's crosses. The roof, now in natural slate, is steeply inclined and preserves the volumes of the second floor. The alloy of flint, Saint-Jean bricks and black bricks offers patterns of the most effect. In the main room, the fireplace is authentically from the 16th century.

On three levels and a partial cellar, the services are of high quality. This building of character simply deserves an update.

Outbuildings with high potential and a heated swimming pool

In the 2000s, a large and magnificent brick and flint barn was renovated on two levels with a single storey bedroom with its own bathroom. With a total of 5 five bedrooms and three shower rooms, this farmhouse is a real house where part of the family or caretakers can lodge all year round. As a guest house or as a seasonal rental, this charming Norman house will easily find its vocation.

From the old farmhouse, two pretty old brick buildings have stood the test of time. In particular, the old stables located away in the park are magnificent. In this charming place, a painting workshop, a music room and all other fun activities could be practiced after some work.

In the agricultural hangar in wooden frame, boxes for horses have been fitted out. A small equestrian activity can easily take place there. But this large building can also satisfy the needs of an enthusiast of old mechanics or other collections.

Finally, near the large terrace located to the south of the manor, a swimming pool heated by a heat pump will delight children on sunny days.
