A 19th century, Anglo-Norman manor house in approx. 3 ha of parklands
28 km from the seaside and 1½ hours from Paris

Neufchâtel-en-Bray, SOMME picardy 76270 FR


This property, 8 km from a little provincial town with all food shops and amenities, notably a train station, is in a village which still has a bakery, a post office and a chemist.
Rouen is 75 km away via the A28 motorway and Neufchâtel-en-Bray is 37 km away. Paris can be reached via the A16 motorway.
Apart from the magnificent landscapes and beaches on Somme Bay, the seaside at Le-Tréport is but 28 km away and Dieppe is 45 km away.


The vegetation in this part of Picardy is extremely luxurious. The village where this property has stood for almost four centuries is easy to get to. A majestic alleyway, lined with lime trees leads to the building which stands in a dominant position, providing an impressive view of the valley.
An outbuilding, the former stables, is extended by a caretaker’s cottage on the right-hand side of the gates.
A 16th century dovecote awaits restoration. The grounds extend all around the main residence.
It would also be possible to purchase three hectares of forest as well as a lake, spanning the same surface area, in addition to this property.

The 19th century manor house

This manor house, with architecture bringing a seaside villa to mind, was reconstructed in the 19th century on the foundations of an old 16th century castle, destroyed by fire. It spans a total floor surface area of 450 m² over four levels, including a basement.
Its dominant and, therefore, strategic position meant that it was used as the German army headquarters during the Second World War.
It comprises ten bedrooms but it would be possible to create more, with bath or shower and dressing rooms.
Its roofs of varying heights, covered in tiles, feature Jacobin-style roof dormers. The facades are made of flint and quarry stone blocks with the upper sections featuring half-timbering. There are so many openings that all the rooms are extremely bright.
The entire manor house is in need of improvement works and some conversion works when it comes to bath or shower rooms, and some door and window frames need replacing. A heating system also needs to be installed.

Ground floor
The rooms are spacious and comprise an entrance hall, a study that could become a ground floor bedroom, a dining room made extremely luminous by a bow window, two lounges and a kitchen. A door to the outside and one leading to the basement are on the side of the residence. Fireplaces enhance the reception rooms. The floors are laid with terracotta tiles or oak wood parquet flooring. The large, left-turning stairway, leading upstairs, is made of wood as are its railings.
First floor
A hall area, identical to that on the ground floor, provides access to seven bedrooms, some of which intercommunicate, as well as to two bathrooms and a separate toilet.
Some of the bedrooms have a fireplace. There is oak wood parquet flooring throughout.

Second floor
This floor surface area is divided into five bedrooms, with oak wood parquet flooring identical to that on the first floor.
Third floor
These old maids’ bedrooms await full rehabilitation works.
Once the kitchens, this level comprises several rooms.
It spans a floor surface area of approx. 160 m².

The dovecote

Dating back to the 16th century, this dovecote awaits full restoration works.

The outbuilding, once stables

The red brick facades are topped with a gable roof, covered with tiles. This building is extended by a caretaker’s cottage. It spans a total floor surface area of approx. 200 m².

The caretaker’s cottage

Ground floor
This cottage comprises a lounge, a bedroom, a kitchen, a shower room and a toilet.

Our opinion

This manor house, with its many steep roofs, its colourful facades, the pleasant geometry of its half-timbering and railings as well as its numerous roof dormers, like eyes looking out over the natural surroundings, appears to be right out of a fairy tale. Courtesy of its proportions and its interior luminosity, it decorously replaced the castle, which had stood on the same lofty site dominating the surroundings but had been destroyed by fire, in the 19th century. A heating system will have to be installed in addition to the inevitable improvement works which will, no doubt, be willingly carried out in such a beautiful place less than an hour from the sea.
