Manor house, French Heritage monument to Turgon

The Manor is located 250 metres north of Turgon. The old House is at the curb but the square stair Tower is on the rise on Court. The door of the Tower has a molded frame and its second level window has moulding support. The window on the corps de logis left the door to the staircase is beading and tie. On the South side elevation, Gable, upstairs, a window has retained its molded frame and its large irregular lintel decorated with a curly pediment forming. A barn is next to the elevation on the housing court, covered lean-to. In addition to the logis and separated by a court is a block long farm whose openings have been remade. The door has a protected by a drip stone lintel. Above the lintel, and at the center of it, are drilled two holes at pigeons in a monolithic slab. The Plessy could be part of the Châtellenie of Turgon, mentioned as early as 1559, as belonging to François Pastoureau, Counsellor to the Parlement of Paris, which still possessed in 1602. The logis can date back to the end of the 16th century or the beginning of the 17th century. The fief was bought in 1687 by Louis-Gilles Le Maistre, also Councillor at the Parlement of Paris and who does not reside in Plessy... In 1770, one of his descendants sold the Plessy with the seigneuries of Chassiecq and Turgon to Duchess of D'anville, Baroness of Champagne-Mouton. This mansion served as farm likely since its inception. New buildings have been made or redone in the 19th century and the changes have been made in the 20th century.
