Character properties in Normandy: between authenticity and natural charm

Testifying to the renewed interest in Normandy’s character properties and the region’s gentle way of life, a magnificent Norman manor house put up for sale by Groupe Mercure found buyers in less than 3 months.

A historic residence dating from the 16th – 17th centuries, listed on the Monuments Historiques (ISMH), this splendid Norman manor house has been tastefully renovated to provide all modern conveniences, while retaining many period features. With a surface area of 300m2, it offers a reception area of almost 70m2, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, all spread over two floors.

Nestled in 1.5 hectares of parkland and crossed by a small river with a bridge, the property boasts a tennis court and an 80m2 janitor’s cottage. Located 10 minutes from the center of Caen and just 2 hours from Paris, this manor house found new owners in less than 3 months.

“Ideal for its location, its heritage dimension and the quality of its renovation, this property combines all the assets of THE family home favored by buyers looking for roots and greenery. Over and above the changes in behavior brought about by covid, this appetite for Normandy’s character properties shows a shift in values towards the need to anchor oneself, which goes hand in hand with sustainable consumption, the primacy of the long term and the return to favor of the tricolor brand,” enthuse Laurence Ardant and Béatrice Gayon of Mercure Normandie.
