This historic home built on the site of a former “watch tower” with underground “escape passages” leading to the nearby monastery has commanding views over the river valley and beyond. Restored in the 1920s and then bought by the grandfather of the current owner in the 1930s this property has been maintained in its original format and today offers a “step back in time” for those that enter within. The comfort of modern times such as central heating and an outdoor pool have been added but in such a way as not to detract from the origins of this manoir. A sizeable (nearly 2 hectare) park surrounds the buildings offering privacy and security as well as plenty of space to enjoy this areas excellent mild climate.
The manoir today provides comfortable family accommodation over 3 floors: The ground floor with twin period entrances takes you into the hall with stairs up and to the right a large salon (43m²) with feature fireplace (bearing various cotes of arms), large original beams and double aspect. The formal dining hall (33m²) to the left of the entrance hall also is double aspect, a smaller wood panel covered feature fireplace and tiled floors leads to a large kitchen with plenty of space for a break fast table etc.
The 1st floor is home to the master bedroom (43m²) with parquet flooring, double aspect and feature fireplace an intercommunicating bathroom with shower and wc links to the 2nd large bedroom on this floor (35m²). Up again we discover the converted attic with two further bedrooms with parquet flooring, a bathroom and wc and attic room (with a secret).
The manoir has several basement rooms and well.
The guest longere has been converted into a large family home offering kitchen, good sized kitchen conservatory with private views over the park and garden, lounge, bedroom and office on the ground floor and 4 bedrooms with 3 shower rooms and a bathroom above.
