Set in seven acres of tranquil gardens, and surrounded by green fields the old farmhouse of Les Rouges Terres has stood for over two hundred and fifty years. History has rolled by, but the house has stood unmoving, solid and welcoming.  The thick stone walls keep the house cool in the summer and cosy in the winter. Many families down the decades will have sat in front of the old fireplace, keeping warm and telling stories.

At the front of the house the old farmyard was where once cows and chickens gathered, and now roses and nasturtiums bloom. The back of the house faces the two lakes, which are fed by a stream of clear water. On a summer’s evening there is no lovelier spot to sit than under the old chestnut tree, watching the sky turn pink and gold as the sun sets in the West.  

Only a five-minute drive to the market town of Torigni, the property is hidden down a tree-lined drive and is a wildlife haven….ducks, moorhens, coypu and coots gather to enjoy the water, the heron sits silently at dawn, waiting for his breakfast and birdsong fills the air. Two kestrels live in the chestnut tree, the barn owls swoop over the house at night.  Swallows return every year to their mud nests in the workshop. Time slows down and peace and nature are close at hand …just down the lane at Les Rouges Terres
