A A fabulous thatched roof cottage with a substantial separate Charretterie House (a Charretterie House is typically a second house located in the grounds, traditional to the Normandy region). Both form incredible adaptable homes with endless conversion opportunities and are set within maintained gardens and a very large area of land (6155 m2). Situated close to the city of Rouen and all major travel routes, it is located in a small and very peaceful hamlet in the Upper Normandy region. Ideal for business investors, commuters from Paris or buyers from the UK. An added benefit of these properties is that there is already approved planning permission in place to build on or to sell part of the land, thus giving the buyer scope for further investment/development opportunities.
The Thatched Cottage:
The cottage is fairly new (built c.1968) and has an impressive size of 184 m2. The most striking feature is its marvellous thatched roof, which is extremely sought after and typical of the Normandy region. Manufactured to the highest standards by the Dutch, who specialise in making the very best thatched roofs available on the market. The current owners have cared for and loved this thatched roof, maintaining it yearly, which has resulted in a property which not only looks beautiful but is perfectly insulated.
Although the main house is quite new it still retains a much older feel, furnished tastefully with a fireplace and mantelpiece both removed from a 13th century chateau. It also has a splendid solid oak staircase that was crafted and copied with the same techniques as would have been used by mediaeval master craftsmen. Furthermore, every room is adorned with solid oak beams giving this property character in abundance. To the rear of the kitchen is a large conservatory and outside terrace which leads onto a pretty landscaped garden. Perfect for entertaining, or just to relax and unwind in.
