Happy First of October! I’m so intrigued by this massive, slightly haunting French manor dating back to the 16th century in Normandy, France! The property comes with guest house, barn, cowshed, and garage, all situated by a garden, meadows, and a stream.
The main house contains kitchen, sitting room, dining room, study, and four bedrooms. The spiral staircase in the main house is amazing, and all the rooms look like they hold so much history. The guest house has a further two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and office. The property is already beautiful, and has so much potential for further restoration into a stunning home.
I’m dreaming about a book written about this place, a tale of history, family, romance, intrigue, and mystery. The photos alone are so inspirational – can you imagine all the stories that have happened here over the centuries?
