A country mansion house and its outbuildings set in 2 hectares of peaceful parklands in the French department of Eure.
This property, in the midst of the Ouche region in quiet, countrified surroundings, is 140 km from Paris as well as the Normandy coast. Evreux is 45 km away.
Several weekly markets selling local produce are held in the nearby villages. Local shops and other amenities are but a few kilometres away.
A narrow, little-used road leads to this property.
Remote-controlled entrance gates open on to a long gravel driveway, lined with conifers and rose bushes, which leads to an area in front of the residence's facade intended for parking cars.
On the other side are two outbuildings housing seven lock-up garages, adjoined by a small guest house.
At the end of the parklands are an old henhouse and a large, open farm shed.
A little market town, exuding authentic charm, is in the immediate vicinity. With 400 inhabitants, it is a very pleasant place to live.
The residenceThis country mansion house, set in enclosed, wooded parklands, spans approx. 285 m² over two levels. Constructed in two different eras, it comprises an old section, most probably dating from the 19th century, and another more recent 20th century section.
