Originally built in 1754 as a ‘Maison de Travail’ and convent, the 6-bedroom Manor has been lovingly restored and tastefully redecorated to an extremely high standard by the owners.
It’s an impressive home, constructed in blue granite, and expands over three floors with a total of 440 sq m of luxury living space. Original features include four 18th century fireplaces, exposed wooden beams, and 75cm-thick walls.
The gardens have been developed with the assistance of local experts; evergreens, lush shrubs and climbers cleverly enhance the ambiance of the outdoor areas and add luxuriance to the views from every window.
From the vast gravel driveway and courtyard, a formal entrance door opens into the granite hall. An additional and more informal entrance opens directly into the kitchen with its huge built-in island, a “Lacanche” piano oven, dining area, original fireplace with log-burner, and enormous under-the-stair pantry. A door from the kitchen opens onto a sun-drenched terrace, perfect for al fresco dining.
The large, light dining room boasts an original granite fireplace and wooden beams. Also on the ground floor is a separate wc and a room currently being used as a gym.
A granite stone stairway leads to a half landing with entrance to the rear gardens, outdoor heated swimming pool (3m x 15m) and the two terraces. The stairway continues to the first-floor landing.
The entire east wing boasts an enormous master bedroom with wooden floors and beams, dressing room and original fireplace. Leading from the bedroom is a cavernous master ensuite.
The large lounge covers the west wing and features an original fireplace with log-burner, and 5 large windows to front and rear that deliver an abundance of natural light.
From the central landing, a carpeted and sweeping staircase rises to a mezzanine level with small landing and study. The current owners have prepared this room for potential use as an additional bathroom (pipes are already in situ). The stairs extend up to the second floor landing.
The east wing has two bedrooms with wooden floors, each stylishly decorated with views over the gardens. There is also a family bathroom with separate wc.
The west wing features three further bedrooms, one with an ensuite, all with original wooden floors and views.
From the east and west wing corridors, there are two sets of stairs that rise to a 200 sq m attic.
