La Maison Rose is a traditional, sympathetically renovated, 6/7 bedroom detached Norman longère full of exposed beams and wood floors nestling in a lovely, tranquil rural setting in a small hamlet yet only 15 minutes from the motorway to Calais. The rose covered house comes complete with the option of a 2/3 bedroom beautifully crafted self-contained gite with holiday rental potential, and two further buildings comprising a small detached barn and a former cremerie both of which have new roofs and could easily be converted to provide additional accommodation subject to the usual consents. The two-storey house itself sits within nearly two hectares of land (currently given over to a combination of managed garden, shrubs, small copses and grazing land) with beautiful views of the rolling fields and meadows and nearby woods.
Ten minutes away in one direction is the small town of Londinières (supermarket, doctor, filling stations) ten minutes the other way lies the larger town of Neufchâtel-en-Bray (hospital, schools, supermarkets, shops, hotels etc etc). Dieppe, local beaches and the Newhaven ferry is half an hour away and the Channel Tunnel 90 minutes distant. The historic cathedral city of Rouen is 30miles distant and Paris two and half hours away. Perfect for visiting family and friends and ideal for those who need easy access to and from the Uk or Paris.

Garden / Outbuildings

The land is approximately two hectares and is given over to managed gardens with flowerbeds and mature trees front, side and rear and grazing land – ideal for livestock or a horse.
Two large outbuildings are found at the property. To one side is a former cremerie with an under croft and a double height ground floor reached via a short flight of steps. This has new roof and would be suitable for development subject to the usual consents. Across the drive and gravelled area is a two-storey workshop and garage and lean-to wood store. This too has a new roof and would be suitable for development subject to planning consent.
Sanitation – Two separate fosse septiques (one for the main house and one for the ‘gite’) both which comply with current legislation
