A preserved and exceptional location
In the fifties, this seaside second home was built on the heights of a rural road, on the edge of Hautot wood, of which more than 8,000 square meters are included in the property, very rare on the edge of sea. The view is dominant on the beach, the sea and the Scie valley.
In the distance, you can see golfers strolling on the famous centenary golf course of Dieppe-Pourville. The location is truly exceptional. Pourville was the favorite holiday resort of Monet, the most famous impressionist painter. Many of his works showcased the Côte d'Albâtre, from Pourville to Varengeville sur Mer and its valleys, Etretat and its cliffs. The famous canvas "Pourville, sunset" and many others, painted by Monet, revealed to the world the grace of the shades of color offered by the English Channel at the foot of the chalk cliffs. The light is changing and exceptional. The Cote d'Albâtre was certainly the most inspiring Normandy coast for the Impressionists, but also for many contemporary artists.
Pourville sur mer, seaside resort with intact charm
Close to Dieppe with the advantages of a city with a rich past as a port city, Pourville has become, thanks to the fashion of sea bathing, a resort very popular with Parisians who accessed it by train in 1848. But it is the Duchess of Berry who launched, at the beginning of the 19th century, the fashion for sea bathing on the beach of Dieppe. Today, if the many English who settled in the 19th century left leaving a strong imprint on the style of construction, the Anglo-Norman villas were often bought and maintained by Parisians. Indeed, Dieppe and Pourville are accessible from Paris-Saint-Lazare in two hours.
More authentic and better preserved than the other Normandy coasts, the Côte d'Albâtre is gradually regaining its letters of nobility. Villages like Varengeville sur Mer, with its remarkable tourist and environmental attractions, attract many Belgian, Dutch, German and British tourists via the fast motorway accesses. From Pourville beach, you can see the cross-Channel ferry, which runs four times a day to Dieppe Newhaven. The hiking trails are very well laid out. From the beach, the Linen Route is imprinted up to Fécamp by an old railway track, now converted into a cycle track. For walkers, the customs road still exists on the heights of the cliffs to, among other things, discover the marine cemetery of the Saint Michel church in Varengeville. In short, between the many cultural, sporting, seaside activities, the historical and commercial assets, Dieppe is a dynamic port city always turned towards the other worlds.
Finally, the charms of the Pays de Caux are appreciable, in particular, its "cours masures", old farms delimited by a closed and preserved space, sheltering magnificent properties of very typical character. In fact, you will be spoiled for choice when exploring this beautiful part of Normandy.
A quiet villa between wood and sea
Arriving at the wooden house, you are struck by the calm and the distant view. The sea, the beach, the cliff, the meadows, the river: what a view!
The smells of the sea, wood, country mix. When you enter the house, you are immediately in the atmosphere of old family second homes. The living room, with a wood stove, is warm. Through the windows, you can sense the mood of the sea. The kitchen is large and family-friendly. One can imagine the Sunday morning breakfasts where the generations come together, or alternately.
Direct access to the terrace is very convenient. Well sheltered from the west winds, it offers the opportunity to taste the sun. Two bedrooms on the ground floor with a bathroom, two additional bedrooms upstairs with bathrooms offer a large sleeping capacity. A weekly rental activity would be very profitable, and this, throughout the year. Central heating is efficient and economical. This property benefits from a wonderful preserved environment to spend sweet moments of rest and meditation.
A favorable logistics situation and possible rental profitability
Four hours from the English coast by ferry, three hours from Brussels, two hours from Paris, this seaside house is a second home located 500 meters from the beach and shops, 1 km from an equestrian center by the hiking path. It could of course be transformed into a main residence as the environment is unique, it could also remain a secondary residence and produce a tourist rental profitability. The Leforestier agency could assist you in this process after acquiring the property.
