This magnificent manoir, steeped in history, once owned by the knight Typhaine de Coetmeur in 1448, is set within a beautiful, tranquil courtyard complete with an ancient well (dated 1709) and fountain.
The house is flanked by granite barns, at present used for internal stabling, workshop, wine store and garaging. These substantial buildings could provide enormous potential for conversion into gîtes, business use or extra accommodation (given appropriate consents).
Commanding an elevated position to the west of the quiet village of Langoelan, the property is surrounded by 25 hectares of flexible land, with easily maintained pastures, managed arable land and ancient deciduous woodland bounded on three sides by the river Scorff. There is a 40m x 20m sand school, separate tractor shed and two field shelters.
With beautiful countryside having far-reaching views, and no near neighbours, the manoir is in a totally private & secluded position, yet not isolated.
The property & land are totally flexible, and could become a gardener's paradise, an equestrian dream, a business, or quite simply a truly tranquil country retreat.
The accommodation, which has been sympathetically restored, consists of large, light and airy rooms, with a lovely kitchen/dining room, drawing room, study, utility room & cloakroom. It has four large bedrooms on the upper two floors each with a dressing room and bathroom. There are massive original granite fireplaces, heavily beamed high ceilings and original oak staircase. Oil-fired central heating is via a four-oven range cooker, and the drawing room has a large Jotul wood-burner.
The property, although substantial, is not rambling, and therefore is economical to maintain/heat, etc..
The house, whose two upper floors have been arranged into four units of bedroom/dressing room/bathroom, could easily provide up to two further bedrooms by utilising the dressing rooms on the top floor - an ideal children's space.
The beautiful gardens include topiary, many old varieties of roses, trees and shrubs. A productive large walnut tree stands to one side of the terrace which is on the South side of the property. A large pond with filter system, holding koi carp, has been created and a substantial greenhouse has been erected. There is a large decorative chicken house with run.
The woodland area which slopes away from the Manoir leading down to the river is a haven for wild life (deer, hares, game birds, pine martens, red squirrels, etc.). There is an unused area of (1-2 hectares) totally surrounded by trees which has been left as a wild-life reserve.
The Manoir du Plessis is a wonderful home which we love very much, and it has been a privilege to live in such a beautiful environment. It is with enormous sadness that, because of ill-health, we now find it necessary to leave.
Would consider part-exchange / house swap for property with pony paddocks in West Sussex / East Sussex / Hampshire area.
