Magnificent manor house with origins dating back to the XII Century set in walled garden in the historic quarter of the popular fortified town of Avranches, with views to the Mont Saint Michel, Manche, Normandy
This very special property, the only residence in Avranches to be classified in its totality in the Register of Historic Monuments, is believed to be the oldest building in the town with origins dating back to the 12th Century. Built within the protective walls of the old town by the Hasculf de Subligny, founder of the nearby Abbey de La Lucerne, over the years the property has been home to Lords, members of the Clergy and has most recently served as a family home. During the second world war, the house gave refuge to the town's historic manuscripts and it was from the library that the current Mayor of Avranches launches his candidature for the 2014 municipal elections. Accommodation is arranged over 2 floors with large, airy rooms filled with natural light with views from the kitchen and first floor bedroom suite over the neighbouring park to the coast and the famous Mont Saint Michel. A vaulted cellar runs the length of the house and is accessible from the street behind the property. The house offers 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 3 reception rooms. The south-facing garden is completely enclosed by walls with an impressive arched entrance offering a haven of complete privacy within just a short walk of town centre amenities. A truly wonderful property, ready for a new owner to help write the next chapter in its history.
