General Description

Built in 1800 from local yellow sandstone, this manoir is one of the largest and most important properties in the village. It is located in the very heart of the village on a quiet, narrow lane and has splendid views of the chateau, the old buildings of the village and the surrounding countryside. The shop, church and post-office are about 100 yards from the front door and the auberge is about 5 minutes walk. The house does not have a pool but there is a beautiful swimming lake just a short walk from the property. There is a small, flower filled garden opposite the property and to the rear, there is a large adjoining garden and orchard overlooking the surrounding fields. The house has been sympathetically restored to bring out the best of the early nineteenth century features and has been decorated and furnished in a luxurious, modern and sophisticated style. It is very spacious, elegant and airy, with high ceilings, Italian marble floors, period features, beautiful wood floors upstairs and a magnificent, wide, circular wooden staircase.
