Network devices which are configured in /etc/network/interfaces will
  typically be managed by ifupdown. Such devices will by default be
  marked as "unmanaged" in NetworkManager.

I used to run a configuration like that, so I can confirm that this
works indeed.

(For completeness' sake: I used to have the static network config of my
workstation configured on the box itself, until I decided that it would
be a lot simpler to just set up a static association on my DHCP server
and just let NM handle all the network issues on my clients)
