An extraordinary medieval building with towers and arched entry way set on the edge of a peaceful hamlet and enjoying long country views. The property has been comprehensively restored to provide dramatic living spaces within grand proportions and yet remains eminently livable for a small family.
The property is formerly a strategic and defensive chateau believed to have been a pilgrims’ hospice on one of the routes to Spain. Developed over successive periods, the atmosphere is an intriguing blend of historic and architectural detail, including six magnificent fireplaces. Broad mullioned windows and ceiling heights up to 4 meters create great luminosity. Underfloor heating throughout is supplied by a high performance ground source heat pump.
A strong feature is a 45m² kitchen, with massive beamed ceiling and dining area beside an imposing classical fireplace and French window to elevated terrace for outdoor dining. At flrst floor level a grand salon of 70m² is an extraordinary space for entertaining and gives access to the tower rooms. The principal bedrooms have generous proportions and ensuite bathrooms.
From the main entrance, a cypress and rose-lined driveway leads to a parking area below a dramatic arched entryway rising to a formal courtyard with water feature and box hedge parterres. A separate building of approx.180sm is largely restored and planned as an independent guest house with 3-bedroom suites.
The gardens have been skillfully landscaped with numerous and unusual plantings, circular maze in hornbeam and Lonicera hedging and a rose and cypress-lined driveway. A 17-metre swimming pool has a splendid shaded terrace with raised timber decking. Land comprising 1 hectare in all.
The manoir forms part of a friendly village which provides a sense of community and obviates the need for guardians when the building is not inhabited.
