This property consists of two separate houses and would be perfect for those looking for a home and income. Both properties are original rural buildings that have been fully renovated to create contemporary living spaces.
There’s a 2-bedroom / 2 bathroom cottage, together with a 2-bedroom/ two bathroom barn conversion of original timber framed Normandy-style buildings. The properties are surrounded by some beautiful grounds and the popular market town of Neufchatel en Bray is within easy reach. The ferry port at Dieppe is 45mins drive and Euro-tunnel only 90 mins away.
The barn was completely renovated in 2005. New foundations were put in and a new roof was put on. The whole building was fully insulated and new windows, shutters and Velux’s all fitted. The exterior was completely re-clad with wood and brick in-fill. New oak floors were laid upstairs with parquet flooring and sandstone tiles downstairs. The main living space is a large light-filled open-plan living/dining/kitchen space on the first floor with two bedrooms and en-suites and a separate WC on the ground floor.
The layout of the rooms is as follows:
Oak staircase to first floor
Master bedroom with en suite shower room (underfloor heating)
Bedroom 2 with built in Queen side bunk beds and a standard double. (so sleeps 4 comfortably)
Main living space with kitchen diner at one end and sitting room (with open fire) at the other.
This property has oil-fired central heating and its own septic tank.
Cottage / Gite:
The cottage has also been renovated (in 2014) but the owners have retained the original wattle and daub walls and the tiled roof. All windows are double-glazed and the walls are fully insulated. The downstairs is tiled and upstairs, like the barn, is mainly oak flooring.
The layout of the rooms is as follows:
Main living space (tiled throughout) is open plan with steps to lounge area at one end (with Jotul stove) and large double-glazed window on to the top terrace. At the other end is the kitchen - with electric oven and fridge, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher with double doors onto the bottom terrace. In between is a dining area with staircase and a pool table. Stained glass window feature.
