Le Haras de Guergué has been transformed in the last 5 years into a superb stud farm with little expense spared, and other than finishing the manor house, the stud is ready to be used as a high class breeding operation.
Significant sums have been spent on the provision of services, so those who wish to erect more buildings will find much of the preliminary work already complete.
In the Orne, in the rolling country of the Pays d'Auge, le Haras de Guergué is in true horse country about 75km (45 miles) south of Deauville. The area is renowned for the breeding of thoroughbreds, and there are many other famous stud farms nearby, particularly le Haras du Pin, the National Stud, only a few kilometres away. The A28 is accessible at Gacé, and Paris, via the N12, is 175km or about two and a half hours drive.
The Manor House
Approached through a fine gateway and by a poplar lined avenue from the Chambois - Omméel road, the manor house is at the centre of the stud farm. Much of it dates from 16th century with even older 12th century origins originally on a moated site.
The current owner has restored the main fabric of this charming house, and it is now ready for fitting out internally. It has:
On the ground floor:
Entrance hall; Main reception room; study and cloakroom; galleried dining room; kitchen and cloakroom.
On the first and second floor, reached by a stone staircase, plans are for:
6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and two dressing rooms. The mains services are in place. This is a wonderful opportunity to create a charming principal house of quality.
The Manager's House
Adjoining the manor, half timbered 'en colombages' under a tiled roof this is smart accommodation with extensive reception areas, a fitted kitchen and offices on the ground floor. On the first floor are 3 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. From the ground floor is direct access to the adjoining foaling unit.
The Staff Cottage
A modern staff cottage adjoins the offices and consists of a reception rom, a fitted kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room.
This former Pressoir makes up the third side of the original farm buildings and has consent to convert to further accommodation. This would make an attractive 2 bedroom cottage.
The Foaling Unit
