Ref. 3723 Authentic listed manor for sale at the gates of Caen
This elegant mansion is located in the heart of the Calvados department, away from a town providing most of the local services.
With privileged access to roads and highways, rail and airport networks, the property enjoys the proximity of the city without knowing the nuisance.
Located in the heart of a French-style park, where woods and lawns harmonize, this authentic manor offers a rural environment a few leagues from civilization. There are tourist, sporting and cultural activities and the coastline is never far away.
Its listed status provides all the protection it needs to maintain its undeniable peace of mind, which future projects now in effect will only strengthen.
With a total surface area of about 470 sqm on 3 levels, the property is arranged around a central entrance hall where an exceptional spiral staircase begins, bordered by an elegant wrought iron railing (Listed) rising in scrolls towards a painted medallion-shaped ceiling (Listed). Amenities under the staircase.
On its left side, there is a living/dining room with a superb monumental fireplace; on its right side a large living room (40sqm) decorated with beautiful period painted woodwork. This is followed by a large library (marble fireplace) extended by a surprising, very green orangery.
On the first floor: 4 bedrooms, all adjoining a bathroom wc. Dressing room.
On the second floor, 3 bedrooms, one with shower room, laundry, technical room and storage room.
The dovecote (listed) built in stone on a circular base tapering towards an elegant cornice formerly covered; the pigeonholes are intact and, by their number, recall the importance of the property in the 17th century.
To the northeast is the old farmhouse mainly devoted to horses. It is now used for the use of stables, pigsties, workshop, garage and storage room.
Presence of a pond surrounded by low walls.
Heated greenhouse with a passageway.
Old small housing to rehabilitate on two floors.
In the North West, a caretaker’s house (70 sqm) entirely renovated in 2014, which comprises living room, kitchen, bathroom, wc, 2 bedrooms and storage room. Adjoining building used as a boiler room, storage room.
Space is divided between vast lawns adorned with trimmed boxwood, bushes and woods in the background, as well as a generous vegetable garden alongside the Norman fruit trees. The park is beautifully wooded with multiple species, some of which seem to have survived the centuries.
Maintenance is provided by an efficient gardener who keeps the premises in perfect condition. The property is partly enclosed by intact walls, or open onto the countryside without any vis-à-vis.
The whole is of a total surface of approximately 15,81 acres (6,40ha), of which a third is wooded.
