An ideal location, in the heart of the regions along the Seine Estuary.
180 km from Paris via the A13 motorway, 75km from Rouen and 18km from Le Havre.
Just ten minutes from the Tancarville and the Normandy bridges, the main seaside resorts of Honfleur, Trouville and Deauville are just twenty minutes away.
The two nearest towns provide a full range of shops and amenities, administrative facilities and schools.
There are a number of cultural sites in the surrounding areas to please art and culture enthusiasts as well as other leisure activities.


Previously known as “Beauséjour” meaning beautiful residence, the residence was built in 1831 by the Notary of the village, Saint-Romain who used Saint-Jean orangey-pink bricks for the south facing facade.
Occupied during the Second World War, it then became the joy of the actor Philippe Nicaud. Today, it stands majestic and quiet in the parklands under its slate hip roof, recalling the past and old traditions. It may be accessed by two densely wooded alleyways forming a half circle.
The north-facing immaculate white facade stands out with its purity and features two rows of windows and perfectly aligned wood shutters. A central stone staircase leads to the main entrance.
The south facing facade, built with Saint-Jean bricks opens on to a wooded garden. In the south corner, a few metres away, some old stables have been entirely refurbished with period materials using old architectural techniques and given a contemporary touch to create a beautiful guest house. An aboveground swimming pool area is surrounded by lawn.
There are other outbuildings with their original appearance such as a ripening shed, an attic and an area left open - until another use for it is found.

The small manor house

It has two large facades both of different styles and both with their own entrance, one south facing and the other north facing. The authentic character of the interior has been kept.
It has numerous living rooms and bedrooms spanning a surface area of 300m2 over three levels.
The ground floor is accessed via a vestibule with old beige and orange floor tiles and comprises, on one side, two sitting rooms and, on the other, a dining room followed by a contemporary kitchen. The latter is accessed through a passage way. A toilet and a number of built-in cupboards complete this level.
Via the staircase, the first floor landing opens on to a 12 m-long corridor with three windows opening on to the landscaped garden. The corridor leads to three bedrooms one of which has a study, and another, a wardrobe, a bathroom, a shower and a toilet. The whole floor is south facing with a garden view.
On the second floor, two bedrooms with sloping ceilings share a shower room and two wardrobes. Leading on from these rooms there is a 45m2 attic awaiting conversion.

Ground floor
From the vestibule with its two-tone cement flooring and its staircase that leads to the upper floors, the ground floor serves, on one side, two sitting rooms with parquet flooring letting in lots of light thanks to the windows on both sides, a garden view, beautiful high ceilings, cornices and mouldings, and marble fireplaces.
On the other, a dining room that has the same fittings and finishings as the sitting rooms opens in to a long passage way with original floor tiles leading to a contemporary fitted kitchen, both simple and functional. A toilet and a number of built-in cupboards with sturdy doors finish off this level nicely.

First floor
It is accessed by the staircase that leads up to a landing, opening on to a 12 m-long corridor with three windows and a view of the landscaped garden. It leads to three big bedrooms with parquet or carpet floorings and marble fireplaces. There are in-built wardrobes adding to the storage space. A spacious contemporary-style bathroom, a shower and a toilet complete this floor.
Second floor
Exposed beams, parquet flooring and white walls define the character of this second floor with slightly sloping ceilings where there are two bedrooms, wardrobes and a shared shower room and a toilet.
Leading on from these bedrooms, an attic with exposed beams and terracotta tiles could be converted to make more living space on this level.

The basement houses a wine cellar and a boiler.

The annex house

These former stables have now become the annex house, on two levels, very spacious spanning 140 m2. It combines period materials and contemporary comfort providing a kind of intelligent authenticity.

Ground floor
It comprises a fitted kitchen, in a neutral and elegant colour, a sitting room featuring an old water trough, today there just for decoration and a large living area with daub walls on the dining room side and brick and flint on the sitting room side. Exposed beams and high ceilings highlight the authentic aspect of the property. The whole ground floor opens on to a terrace and well exposed gardens.
First floor
On the first floor, two bedrooms, each with their own shower room and a toilet, face each other. Very contemporary style and high quality finishings.

The swimming pool

The aboveground swimming pool, surrounded by lawn and shrubs and bushes is in front of the annex house.

A group of outbuildings

A ripening shed, an attic and an open space in an old brick and stone building can be renovated and converted.

Our opinion

With its double entrance and two different-styled facades, as different as two sides of a coin, surrounded by large green open spaces and woodland bringing freshness and softness, this small manor house and its annex house combine the charm of yesteryear with modern-day home comforts. The inside spaces and the layout make the house very practical to live in. As do its high quality finishings and the atmosphere of the place. Outside spaces have also been well thought out. With such furnishings and fittings, the property could be used as a hotel and catering business or a home.
