A magnificent Nineteenth Century manor house, or small chateau, located between the well-known and very popular medieval city of Domfront and the beautiful spa town of Bagnoles de l'Orne, beside the Normandy Natural Regional Park.
The Manor has approximately 480 m2 of living space on 4 floors, with 8 bedrooms (5 with en-suites) and 3 modernised apartments and a cottage.
The Manor, known locally as 'Chateau Sainte Cecile', has been fully renovated with a new roof; double-glazing, central heating, insulation and new electrics throughout. A modern kitchen has been installed with underfloor heating and top of the range kitchen appliances.
2 new large bathrooms and 5 en-suites have been installed in addition to the existing wcs.
Many of the rooms have the original parquet flooring in excellent condition, exquisite grand marble Louis XVI style fireplaces in all rooms; and, the beautiful hall with its amazing wooden staircase has Maltese tiles.
There is an outstanding dining room with wainscot, carved ceiling of the music 'Beaux Arts' and window surrounds that open out with full glass folding doors to a magnificent glass veranda (30 m2) that runs the full length of the Manor.
High ceilings throughout the Manor and the decorative living room with ornate moulded ceilings and panelled walls is outstanding.
The St Martinique style veranda with the 130-year-old elaborate wrought-iron design, that leads out from every room on the first floor, overlooks the beautiful enclosed flowered garden with fishpond and cobbled courtyard with its very pretty pumphouse. Above it is a huge balcony of the same size that opens from French doors off the bedrooms.
The fully tiled basement contains additional rooms, wine cellar, barbecue room and huge storage areas.
In the courtyard and gardens are 3 holiday apartments and a separate cottage that can cater for couples to large groups. All have been renovated, modernised and fully equipped; and, due to the Manor's excellent location for holidaymakers and passing tourists they are constantly rented and give a very healthy income.
There are 4 hectares of land, a large pond and a range of large stone outbuildings, ready for conversion, all enclosed in a border of planted trees and shrubs.
Paris easily accessible by train and 1 1/4 hours from the Normandy coast and beaches and ferry ports.
