A 15th et 16th century, half-timbered manor house, with more than 2 ha of land, 20 minutes from Normandy's beaches.
This property, in the Caux region, near to the Albâtre coast, named after the whiteness of its cliffs, is set in the valley of a river which still features vestiges of numerous mills. Yvetôt and its SNCF train station are 12 km away, Rouen is 45 km away and Paris a mere 160 km away via the A13 motorway.
The seaside is 17 km away, the nearby forest is ideal for wonderful hikes on foot or on horseback. The nearest village, with shops, is 7 km away.
After having turned off of the secondary road that leads to the prettiest beaches in the region, a narrow winding road leads through grasslands and wooded land to this property. At the end of the lane, in a hamlet which still has traces of its religious past, an old clos masure (local dialect meaning enclosed hovel), spanning 2.2 ha, comprises a 15th century, half-timbered manor house, an old 16th century, brick and sandstone sheepfold, now in use as a garage, an old, brick and flint cowshed and a large farm building constructed from half-timbering and cob. This property is set in the peace and quiet, well away from its two nearest neighbours.
The 16th century manor houseThis half-timbered manor house is built over two levels. The upstairs, with corbelling, is decorated with a row of cross-braces. It features wide mullioned windows. The very steep slate roof, topped with a large chimney stack, gives the building its stately air. Two wooden statuettes above the entrance door represent a bishop and a nun. Vestige of a leper hospital which was linked to Fécamp Abbey in the 15th century.
The heavy wooden entrance door opens into the main room of the manor house. Featuring a tall fireplace, with sculpted sandstone jambs, it leads to a lounge, also enhanced with a monumental fireplace, and then to a bedroom, both on the facade side. A kitchen, a bathroom, a toilet and a linen room are all laid out at the back of the house. This level is extended by a vast room, adjoining the lounge and awaiting completion of full restoration works.
A wooden stairway goes up to a corridor providing access to four bedrooms and a toilet. The wooden flooring is laid on thick joists that are exposed on the ground floor. The view over the surrounding countryside from the windows is completely unobstructed.
This level comprises an attic and two old maids bedrooms.
Once used for storing cider, these stone cellars can be reached from the outside. They span a floor surface area of 60 m².The outbuildingsThis property has three outbuildings.
An old 16th century sheepfold, constructed from half-timbering and local sandstone, is topped with a granary. It is currently in use as a garage.
