Charming house in the country side
Nestled in enclosed grounds, called Clos-Masure, typical of Pays de Caux, this property is a former priory that used to be under a religious order: the rule of Saint Augustine that was submitted to an abbey. In the 14th century, under Henry V, King of England, the abbey, held by monks and nuns used to care for the sick. Due to its priory architecture, this dwelling has more space area than a traditional Norman house, it is also comfortable as well as being elegant.
After the revolution, this characterful property became a coachman inn and therefore its history was less spiritual. Currently it's a secondary house but could as well be a main home as it has enough living space.
Family house with many rooms.
On ground floor, an impressive fireplace gives a warm and friendly feeling to the living room and to the semi-open kitchen. Family and friends can enjoy meals by the fireplace. The main living room leads to a smaller one where you could imagine installing musical instruments, a pool table or a library. The bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor are handy so you don't always have to heat the 3 comfortable bedrooms upstairs. A bed and breakfast business would be easy to manage. Next to the office, a room could easily be refurbished into a master bedroom with bathroom and dressing room ensuite. This is a great family house to have wonderful memories of good times outdoors watching the frogs in the pond, making sheds in trees, gathering apples from the orchard, petting donkeys or horses in the meadow.
