Characterful and Historic Property Experience the timeless allure of a 12th-century Priory, meticulously renovated to harmonize modern comfort with historical charm! Nestled in a tranquil setting, it was founded in 1120 as a monastery, later becoming a Priory for women. It boasts a rich tapestry of history, once graced by esteemed residents including King Richard the Lionheart and the sister of King Louis XIII. Remnants of its storied past linger within basement, where original 12th century arched windows lay testament to its enduring legacy. Offering a rare blend of historical significance and contemporary refinement, this expansive 350 m2 property epitomizes elegance and grandeur. A gated entrance beckons onto a gravel courtyard, bordered by an expansive stone stable (18x6m). Beyond is an independent barn, with a new roof, featuring a picturesque bread oven and forge, awaiting further renovation. The enchanting garden, bathed in southern sunlight is adorned with a heated swimming pool (10mx5m) and the meadow is bordered by the tranquil Lizonne river, evoking a sense of awe-inspiring tranquility. Step inside to discover a main house full of authentic accents—exposed beams, exquisite stone masonry, 12th century arrow slits and original archways —enhancing its allure. Two spacious living rooms with roaring fireplaces, a fully-equipped kitchen, and four spacious bedrooms, each boasting an ensuite bathroom, beckon with comfort and grace. Ascend a sweeping stone spiral staircase and behold the mesmerising vistas from an expansive balcony with monastic columns and panoramic views of the surrounding nature.
