Manor house, French Heritage monument to Le blanc

The information of the site of the ministry for the culture teach us that the manor breaks up into several parts of which:

  • the home itself,
  • the main tower,
  • the western tower close to the entry of origin
  • the building in the North-West of the court which seems to date from the end of the 15th century or the beginning of the 16th century
  • the dovecote which dates from 2nd half of the 16th century

the two bodies of building which frames the home and the building in the north of the court would be can be 17th or 18th centuries.

One also learns that at the 19th century take place a total rebuilding from the building in the east from the court as well as a repair from the western tower frappee to the weapons from Bichier plus a rehandling from the home and the two bodies from building which is next to it.
