If you have ever dreamt of finding a cute little house in Normandy, tucked away in deep green countryside, then this one is for you!
This charming property belongs to a friend who has to move for professional reasons. It lays on the banks of the river that runs through our valley, just a couple of minutes from our village.
The house is quite small, which makes it ideal as a country pied-à-terre, or a weekend hideaway from a busy life in Paris. Downstairs there is a large sitting room, a dining room and a small kitchen.
I love the beams and the beautiful floor tiles. There are many windows to make the house bright and airy.
Below is the view from the dining room through and across the hallway into the sitting room.
The kitchen is small but very well put together and very functional.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, this is the one I prefer, for the view of course, a long uninterrupted vista across fields.
The bathroom is also bright and airy with its big window that lets the sunshine pour in.
Sitting outside on a summer evening here, is quite wonderful. The river running by and the birdsong is about the only sound to be heard. Today there are some great trees and a good basis in the garden, and with a little TLC it could become quite spectacular.
The house measures about 120 square meters or 1300 square feet, and the overall property around 7000 square meters, or 1.7 acres. It was built in the 50's, and a lot of old materials were used, which is why it has such an authentic air. I particularly appreciate the old roof tiles, typical of traditional houses in Normandy.
And if perchance you wish to keep horses, there is already a paddock fenced off, with a couple of stables ready to go!
