A splendid example of Anglo-Normand architecture set in an arboretum of 7900m².
Situated on the outskirts of a quiet village. Only two hours from central Paris, and less than one hour from the coast. This thoughtfully and elegantly restored early 20th century brick and flint house offers many authentic elements, including ancient tinted cement and terracotta floor tiles, pitch pine parquet and several marble fireplaces.
On the ground floor we find a central entry hall, a study, a large cloakroom, delightfully decorated with antique murals depicting animal subjects. A dining room opening onto the rear terrace and a light and airy fitted kitchen having triple exposure.
On the first floor a landing opens into the master bedroom with its private shower room, toilet and dressing rooms. A smaller bedroom and a large library which gives access to a large covered terrace, enclosed by unusual lattice woodwork.
On the second floor we find a guest apartment including two bedrooms, a shower room, a toilet and a games room.
The cellar is accessed via the cloakroom and houses a boiler room, a wood store, a workshop and a wine reserve.
An outbuilding (160sqmt) of recent construction (1997) with timber and brick cladding, both heated and insulated, benefits from two large double glazed French doors. It includes on the ground floor a garage and workshop, whilst the attic above provides extensive storage space.
The park is renown for its majestic century old trees. We discover linden trees, horse chestnuts, sweet chestnuts, and larch. A pair of giant Sequoias and a Sequoia sempervirens, silver birch, weeping willow, Paulownia Lanta, Mexican orange tree, cypress, tulip tree, purple and twisted hazels. Two dozen varieties of pine. Not forgetting the numerous fruit trees, peach, apple, pear, plum, and cherry. The massifs abound with rhododendrons, camellias, roses, and more ..
