on 2 ha of land, with an unobstructed view, an hour from Paris
Paris is 85 km away; Evreux and Vernon are 23 km away. Pacy-sur-Eure, with its food shops, supermarket, administrative infrastructures and schools, including a secondary school, is 10 km away. An SNCF train station is but 3 km away.
Multiple activities can be enjoyed near to the village, where this property is located. Numerous hiking trails make it possible to explore an exceptional natural setting now recognised as a regional nature reserve, where magnificent orchids bloom in an almost southern ambiance.
The cultural centre of Giverny, home to impressionism, is about 20 km away. An American-style, 18-hole golf course, 7 km away, is but waiting for enthusiasts.
Not secluded from the outside, a haven of peace is revealed as of the entrance gates. A square courtyard comprises a vast gravel parking area, a “charreterie” on the left, where carriages were once kept, and a double garage, able to take four cars, with a second level that could be converted. A fully restored, traditional, long farmhouse, spanning three levels on the right-hand side, is reached via a large terrace. On the other side of the building, a second, two-storey house, redesigned with spacious rooms, is not far from an old bread oven and a pond, home to ducks. Kennels and a recently restored greenhouse complete the property. In a separate enclosure, open loose boxes can accommodate four horses.
The traditional, long farmhouse
White-coloured rendering covers the facades of this traditional, long farmhouse, constructed in the 19th century over three levels, including a basement cellar. Said facades feature small-paned windows, protected by wooden shutters with diagonal ties. The building is topped with a gable roof, covered with tiles. Shed dormers let copious amounts of light into the second level.
Two terraces on either side of the house are ideal for taking meals outside.
This very bright level provides access to a kitchen and a large, cathedral room laid out as a lounge-dining room. A right-turning, wooden stairway goes up to the first floor. A hall area, on the left-hand side of the living room, leads to a main bedroom, with a bath-shower room, a dressing room, a laundry room and a toilet. The ceiling of the large living room is enhanced with exposed beams and the lounge section features a fireplace. The floors are laid with tiles or parquet flooring.
A mezzanine, looking down into the living room on the ground floor, gives access to a corridor leading to three bedrooms, a shower room and a toilet. Floors are covered with pitch-pine parquet flooring or tiles.
This vaulted cellar, dating from 1890, spans a surface area of approx. 40 m².
The second house
The gable roof, covered with tiles, on this building is identical to those on the other buildings. The facades are faced with stone and flint, whilst the openings feature brick surrounds. Recently converted over three half-levels, this old barn comprises a living room, with a kitchen area, on the ground floor, and two bedrooms with bathrooms and toilets on the first and half floors. Sunlight floods in via wide, double-glazed openings and French windows. This building is extended by storage rooms and a workshop.
The bread oven
This little building still has its oven, its hearth and its vault, more commonly called “chapel”.
A “charreterie”, where carriages were once kept, is used for storing firewood. A garage, able to take four cars, has a second level awaiting conversion.
This greenhouse is fully restored.
The open, horse, loose boxes
These open loose boxes, standing at the entrance to the meadow, can accommodate four horses.
The peace and quiet that takes pride of place is surprising. It is an undeniable asset for those seeking somewhere to recharge their batteries of a weekend, this estate being just a stone’s throw from Paris. Numerous activities are possible both inside and outside the walls. The beauty of the countryside, stretching for as far as the eye can see from the houses, is a promise of long hours spent resting and relaxing. The proximity of the forest is ideal for outings on foot or on horseback.
