The charming sea-side resort of Mesnil-Val was built in the late nineteenth century on the cliff of the Côte d’Albâtre on Normandy coast. During the Belle Epoque time, a young Parisian architect had launched the building of a hundred villas in the same remarkable style, most of them are listed today. Complexity of roofing, decorations, facades is a characteristic feature. Ceramic plates are affixed to most of them. Today access to this small seaside resort in Normandy, close to Baie de Somme, is very easy and it’s only two hours from Paris by train or by car, only three hours from Brussels.
Our villa for sale is a period ninety thirties Anglo-Norman building that was respectfully restored by its current owner, an architect also. He has succeeded in putting old and new together. Seasonal tenants coming during Summer much appreciate good insulation and heating and quality of fittings. Period features have been kept adding a cosy feeling to this special home. Rooms are all well-lit due to South facing bay window overviewing a terrace and to a wide bow-window.
The beach is within safe walking distance with many possible sports: sea bathing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, fishing on foot or at sea ... The beach restaurant is open five months a year to avoid going back home after swimming. The facing South secluded terrace with barbecue is shed from the wind. A contemporary wood stove has replaced the former fireplace.
With two bedrooms and a small garden, this second home is easy to maintain. In the basement, a large storage space makes it possible to dry sails or kitesurfing suits. The garage is perfect for a fishing boat, a sailboat, or any outboard or windsurf.
