in a small village surrounded by pastoral countryside 75 km from Paris
The area around the village, with some 1,200 inhabitants, is considered part of an especially privileged sector as it is near to Paris.
25 km from Évreux, 17 km from Vernon and 23 km from Giverny. The nearest big market town with a supermarket, all shops as well as administrative infrastructures is just 7 km away.
However, a few shops, a bakery, a butchery, a hair salon, a post office, cafés and a restaurant are to be found in the village, within walking distance from this property.
The nearest SNCF train station is that of Bueil, 4 km away.
A small, henhouse-type outbuilding on one side of the house, a gazebo standing in the middle of the grounds as well as a second outbuilding, used for garage and storage purposes on the other side, complete the buildings.
The 19th century house
This superb stone house, spanning three levels, features beige brick facades with toothed stone quoins. Large openings, some of which are arched, let in copious amounts of daylight. Triangular pediments adorn the windows on the top floor.
This building is covered with a slate roof. The upstairs windows are closed by remote-controlled shutters, whilst those on the ground floor feature folding metal shutters.
Straight porches, reached via a few stone steps, provide access to the building’s two entrances. The main entrance, with its heavy cast iron, glazed door, is sheltered under a wrought iron and glass canopy.
This level, bright and luminous just like the upper floors, reflects the owners’ desire for sober, elegant decoration.
The floors are covered either with herringbone pattern parquet flooring or with stone and ceramic tiles.
Many features still remain and are to be found in their original condition as well as modernised. Panelling, moulding and superb fireplaces with stone or marble mantels adorn the room constituting a lounge and dining room.
A corridor provides access to a toilet, a door leading to a cellar, a kitchen opening on to a garden and a large living room in which lounge and dining room areas have been laid out.
A long terrace runs alongside the facade, protected by a cement balustrade with curved balusters.
All works were recently carried out and these premises are in pristine condition, making it possible for new owners to move in straightaway.
A robust, turning, oak wood stairway goes to the upper floors.
The rooms on this level are bright and harmonious like those on the ground floor.
The floors are covered with pitch-pine parquet flooring or tiles in the bath and shower rooms.
Cast iron, so-called “cat’s ears” radiators confirm their era.
A dressing room, two bedrooms, two bath and shower rooms take up this floor.
The attic floor comprises three bedrooms, a shower room and a toilet.
This vaulted section of the house, known as “the cellars”, comprises four rooms. An iron door opens directly out into the garden.
This ideally located property could appeal to future owners working in Paris, not wishing to maintain a large property and yet seeking to get away into the surrounding countryside.
With no works to be scheduled, the enclosed garden and its south-facing terrace are ideal for recharging one’s batteries.
Golf courses are to be found within a radius of between 30 and 40 kilometres.
