East of the East of the Pays de Caux, between Bacqueville en Caux and the Valley of the Saw, close to the axis Rouen and Dieppe, our mansion for sale was built around 1800 in an elegant assembly of flint and bricks of Saint-Jean, traditional brick of Normandy. The origins of the brick go back to the Egyptians, then to the Greeks, then to the Romans. Abandoned in France during the Middle Ages, she made her reappearance at the rebirth. The brick of Saint-Jean holds its red-orange color of the nature of the Normandy clay and the technique of cooking over a wood fire.
