REDUCED PRICE: Nestled in the canton of l'Orne and the Parc Naturel Régional Normandie-Maine, Le Logis is an outstanding 18th century property that is full of character and provides exceptional family accommodation at the edge of Sainte Marguerite de Carrouges village.

Built on 1.5 hectares with landscaped gardens and paddocks, the buildings were constructed in 1754 from Normandy blue granite. The Manor has 6 bedrooms and the Cottage has 5 bedrooms; both have outdoor heated swimming pools. The perimeter of the property is enclosed by dry-stone granite walls.

Le Logis is app one hour from the coastal town of Caen and two hours from Paris. It is located within easy driving distance of ferry ports and airports, with shops, services and golf-courses nearby. Its proximity to the northern Normandy coast, beaches and transport links means that Le Logis has great potential as a wonderful family home with useable commuter links or as a luxury holiday rental property. The large paddock to the rear of the estate would be highly suitable for use as a helicopter landing site. A state of the art geothermal-powered central heating system, combined with solar panels and double-glazed doors and windows, provides an environmentally-sound, low-cost and highly-effective heating solution for the Manor, the Cottage and the swimming pools.

Take a few minutes to learn about Le Logis. The property's history is detailed in the Bulletin de la Societe Historique et Archeologique de l'Orne. King Louis XV approved the "Le Logis Convent Foundation" in a letter issued and registered with the Parliament de Rouen in 1764.

Our web site photo gallery provides dozens of images and plans. The floor plan for each level of the Manor illustrates the extent of the spacious home. And the virtual tours provide a viewing experience as if you were physically present in that room! We highly recommend an early viewing of this beautiful and desirable property in the heart of the French countryside.

It’s an impressive home, constructed in blue granite, and expands over three floors with a total of 440 sq m of luxury living space. Original features include four 18th century fireplaces, exposed wooden beams, and 75cm-thick walls. The gardens have been developed with the assistance of local experts; evergreens, lush shrubs and climbers cleverly enhance the ambiance of the outdoor areas and add luxuriance to the views from every window.
