Happy Monday! I am consumed with envy over this gorgeous 16th century manor house, in one of the prettiest villages I’ve seen!
The substantial fireplaces, the spiral stone staircase, the mature garden full of fruit and nut trees – so solid and gorgeous. An outbuilding used to be a “piggery” but is now used to store wood. This house makes me dreamy about what it must have been like back in the 1500s when it was first constructed! I imagine they grew a lot of their own food and cooked over the enormous kitchen fire. What else could have happened in this home?
From the listing on Leggett:
Built during the 16th century, and then enlarged in 1776, the manor house was originally owned by the noble families Rufray and Meyjounissas.
You enter into a beautiful entrance hall with the outstanding stone spiral staircase. From here you go into the large kitchen / dining room (45m2) with a open fireplace. From here you can go into the beautiful garden or upstairs to 3 bedrooms (8m2, 10m2 and 11.5m). There is also a shower room with a shower, WC and handbasin. There is access to the attic via a staircase from one of the bedrooms. Going back downstairs to the left of the original entrance hall is an office space (13.5m2) with a view of the terrace in the back garden. To the rear is a WC and a small utility room (3m2). You also have access to a large Barn (30m2) which opens out to the side of the property.
Going upstairs from the entrance hall up the decorative spiral staircase inside the turret you will find the large living room (58m2). This has double glazed windows to 3 sides and is a great big light room with a tiled floor. It also has a huge impressive fireplace with a Log burner. Going upstairs again is the master bedroom (58m2) with ensuite shower room with shower, wc and hand basin. Again this is a light airy room with double glazed windows on 3 sides. The house has some double glazing. The heating is provided by the log burners and there are also some electric radiators.
Outside in the garden are lots of mature trees, fruit trees and nut trees, a grape vine. There is an old piggery that is currently used as a wood store. Plus there is a garage. It is a truly beautiful property in a lovely quiet location.
I also found this Youtube video of a previous Leggett listing in the same village, and almost died from how pretty it is – though sadly this has been sold:
