and outbuildings, on some 3,000 m² of land, 75 km from Paris
Within easy reach of Paris, by crossing part of the Vexin region, via the N14.
The nearest provincial town, with all administrative services, primary and secondary schools as well as shops and an SNCF train station, is 7 km away; Beauvais airport with its low-cost international flights is 40 km away, whilst that of Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle is 85 km away.
This village, dating from the 11th century, has some food shops and restaurants. Not far away is a river and a lake for fishing enthusiasts.
The guest house or caretaker’s cottage has its own independent entrance off the road. The outbuilding houses an area, comfortably converted for use as a hunting room, and a toilet. The vast upper level awaits completion of its conversion into living rooms.
The building is extended by a woodshed and a 2-car garage.
Plain and pastoral, the garden is planted with miscellaneous species of flowers.
Family homes surround the property without causing any particular nuisance. They are part of an estate where four generations have succeeded one another.
The main house
An old stable and annexe buildings, dating from the 18th century, were rehabilitated in 2005. Resembling a traditional, long farmhouse, spanning two levels, its walls are constructed from flint and local stone, covered with a yellow ochre-coloured rendering. They are protected by a hip roof, topped with local tiles.
The roof dormers, with projecting eaves, have wooden frames and are double-glazed, just like those on the lower level, glazed with medium-sized panes.
The arched ground floor windows feature brick relieving arches, adorned in the centre with a coat-of-arms made of local stone. Traditional, arched shutters protect the casement windows on the ground floor.
French windows on one of the facades open on to the garden. Thick wooden doors provide access to the main entrance hall.
A wide, strip of gravelled land, along the edge of the building, is used as a terrace during clement weather.
The entrance vestibule provides access, on one side, to a dressing room, a toilet as well as a lounge with exposed joists and a marble fireplace, and, on the other side, to a majestic stairway, with wrought iron railings and wooden steps. A vast room in use as an open-plan kitchen and dining room features a central unit, topped with a granite worksurface just like all the other kitchen units. It precedes a back kitchen and a study. The floors are laid with hexagonal terracotta tiles with a wood border or with Italian terracotta tiles laid on sand.
A landing room provides access on either side to four bedrooms, featuring the exposed roofing framework, and three bathrooms, all laid out in the fully rehabilitated attic space. A type of sea rush matting covers the floors, with the exception of the bathrooms which have stone floors. Skylights and roof dormers, with overhanging eaves, let in copious amounts of light. Numerous cupboards have been installed in all the rooms. One of the bedrooms spans a floor surface area of approx. 50 m².
The guest house
This small house resembles a traditional long farmhouse, its roof also covered with local tiles and featuring skylights. The ground floor openings are fitted with traditional, wooden shutters. Recent rehabilitation and conversion works have made these premises extremely comfortable. A low stone and flint wall, topped with a tiled roof, separates the guest house from the main residence.
This small house could have its own independent entrance, directly off the road.
Soberly decorated, its floor is paved with grey stone tiles.
A hall area provides access to three bedrooms and a shower room with toilet.
Four buildings adjoin one another. They span one or two levels. The first comprises a small 2-storey flat, the second level of which awaits conversion works. The ground floor comprises a vast living room with a bar. The second building, once a place where carts were kept, is used as a woodshed; the third a workshop; and the fourth an open, 3-car garage.
The roof is covered with local tiles and protects a facade, one third of which is half-timbered, the lower section being made of cement, painted a yellow ochre colour. Each gable wall is made of stone and flint.
A living room with a bar area. A toilet.
This vast room is already insulated but awaits completion of its conversion.
The proximity of Paris and the surroundings in this part of the Vexin-Normand region are delightful assets for all potential buyers seeking an authentic country home which is almost urban given the speed at which it is possible to reach the French capital. The schools to be found within a 10-kilometre radius can but reinforce the decision to live peacefully in Normandy. Furthermore, this luxurious residence has no need of any works.
