and 2,000 m² of land, 20 km from Étretat on the Albâtre coast
Le-Havre, a busy town with 172,000 inhabitants, a trading port and ferries that come and go, is 35 km away. The seaside via Fécamp and Honfleur is 20 km away. The French capital, 190 km away, can be reached via the A13 motorway, with a slip road just 30 km away, or via the A29 motorway, with a slip road 7 km away.
The nearest village, with local shops, medical services and a school, is 3 km away.
Nestling amidst its vegetation, it exudes tranquillity. Once through the entrance gates, a plant-lined driveway passes the outbuilding on its way to the residence. The grounds, enclosed by hedges, are laid out in front of the residence.
This residence, spanning a floor surface area of approx. 200 m² spread out over two spacious levels, has been well thought out. With its five bedrooms and its three bath or shower rooms, it has everything a large residence would have.
Its half-timbered facades, typical of Normandy, are supported on stone and flint lower sections, all topped with a slate, gable roof.
The south-facing, travertine stone terrace is but an invitation to relax in the sunshine as of the springtime! Small-paned openings let in copious amounts of sunlight.
Exposed beams adorn the ceilings, the floors are covered with square sandstone tiles, preserved in the lounge despite being covered by sprung parquet flooring.
The entrance hall provides access, left, to a kitchen as well as a dining room and, right, to a vast lounge, adorned with an impressive fireplace. At the rear are a study, which could be converted into a bedroom, a shower room and a laundry room.
The floors are covered with square sandstone tiles.
This level, with five bedrooms and two shower rooms, has a layout similar to that on the ground floor.
The floors are covered with strip or herringbone pattern parquet flooring.
The large hall area leading to the bedrooms has a cathedral ceiling. Exposed beams adorn the ceiling and the walls.
Constructed over two levels and providing storage and garage space, this outbuilding could be converted into living space on the first floor, or even on both levels. Its facades, reinforced with half-timbering, are sheltered by a gable roof covered with shingle.
The floor surface area comprises both levels.
Regional architecture always appears to be in the nature of things, especially when constructions have gone against local tradition. In this case, countryside forms the neighbourhood whilst the residence and its outbuilding perfectly reflect the Norman style of half-timbering on flint lower sections. Inside, powerful beams have been used for the exposed roofing framework, for ceilings, for open half-timbered partitions and for fireplace lintels. The feeling of well-being exuded throughout the property is enhanced by the proximity of the sea.
