Past the wrought iron gate, then the vault of tall linden trees, the path of a well-groomed garden leads you to the beautiful house. Built in the early 20th century in a Florentine style remarkable elegance, the building is proud and majestic. Offering a sweet and charming style to the building, the pink-coated walls are supported by the English green shutters. British lovers of Normandy were seduced by the exceptional environment of this valley, bordered by hillsides of beeches and oaks. Today protected, the Yères flows below the field to reach its estuary at Criel-sur-Mer and fling into the Channel. Very rich in fish, this river has its source in the low forest of Eu, former royal forest become domaniale. Not far from Dieppe and Eu, in the Pays de Caux maritime and on the borders of Picardy, the history is rich in epics having opposed our close neighbor to the English crown. The port of Saint-Valery-sur-Somme, very close, allowed William the Conqueror to embark on the British Isles.
The few steps of the manor's steps invite you to enter a vast hall with beautifully colored wood paneling and cement pavers. The two living rooms with parquet floors in point of Hungary and beautiful marble fireplaces are bathed in soft light. On the opposite side, a dining room with the same style can easily accommodate thirty people at the table. The kitchen has nice dimensions, which allow for lunch or dinner with the family. The authentic stained glass window on one of the walls communicating with the entrance hall gives it a luminosity that makes more attractive the dark green hues of the high cupboards and blue and white checkered tiles.
The first floor has four huge bedrooms with bathrooms and dressing room. In the second, the four more modest rooms can be completed by a loft remaining to develop in library or family room. In the basement, the rooms are divided into boiler room, wine cellars, laundry, reserve and technical room.
The former large stables at the entrance of the estate have been transformed into two cottages of charming charm but deserving a more contemporary decoration. The greenhouse has been preserved from the ravages of time and will delight a green thumb. But a transformation into an indoor pool would also be appropriate. The garages are functional to house the materials necessary for the maintenance of the property. The stables were built close to the meadows to provide horses comfort, supervision and safety. On the banks of the Yere, there is just a fisherman's hut with terrace and barbecue to fully enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the place.
For a personal or professional project, do not miss to take a serious interest in this house of Normandy which will remain eternally encamped in this beautiful green setting!
