Barnes is presenting this stunning 19th century Norman property nestled at the heart of a magnificent landscaped parkland spanning almost 3 hectares (7.5 acres) on the edge of Bayeux. The main house in Caen stone offers approximately 210m² (2,260 sq ft) of living space and has been entirely refurbished, yet has retained all of its authenticity and period charm. Ground floor: kitchen and pantry space, dining room and 2 lounges with fireplaces and a study. All of the rooms enjoy dual-aspect light from east to west. The floors in the dining room and hall are made from old terracotta, while the stone flooring in the kitchen is original. The ceilings are painted with exposed joists. 2 bedrooms each with its own bathroom on the 1st floor, accessible by a beautiful stone staircase. Nickel-plated plumbing fixtures and fittings by Horus, Volevatch and L'épi d'or. Original parquet flooring and painted walls. The upper floor is accessible by a charming walnut staircase and comprises 2 additional bedrooms. The 80m² (861 sq ft) guest house is laid out as follows: ground floor, charming hall leading to a lounge, large bedroom opening onto a terrace, separate bathroom and toilet. Upstairs is a landing with cupboards and a very spacious bedroom with a bathroom. Outside, the spacious outbuildings measure around 350m² (3,767 sq ft) and are used as a workshop, a shed, a cellar, and garages, and offer fantastic conversion potential. The other highlight of this fabulous property is its landscaped parkland, with its elegant rose path and its Renaissance garden extending onto more ?wild? spaces: a small wood with a tree house, a field, an orchard, a vegetable patch, hedgerows, etc. The unheated glasshouse is the perfect wintering spot for plants sensitive to cold or for a spontaneous nap. This exceptional property is poised in time, a haven of peace in unspoilt surroundings on the edge of Bayeux (5 minutes). Paris in 2hrs30.
