Good Tuesday morning! Two 17th Century Norman houses of exceptional character with courtyard garden in picturesque village of Pont Audemer, Normandy, France!
This property is massive, with seven bedrooms and four bathrooms between both houses combined. Port Audemer is a popular tourist town, and this would be a lovely bed & breakfast under the right care. I love the original dark wood still exposed in the interior, the paned windows, and the many fireplaces. You can feel the years of history in these houses!
From the listing on Leggett:
A complex of 2 dwellings, a residence of exceptional character located very close to the historic centre where all the shops are located in this beautiful tourist village. This authentic property, quiet, with its wooden panels and small openings, stands around a small inner courtyard with its charming little garden. The two independent houses covered with old tiles are placed side by side and form a right angle, which facilitates the project of a guest room or other.
The main house surprises us right from the entrance with its flint paving stones, for its authenticity, its imposing beams, its woodwork, its ornaments and its huge fireplaces. On the ground floor, a long corridor leads us to a first room, a pantry, a large dining room, a large living room, a large kitchen with garden access, guest toilets and a recent shower room.
An all-wood and tomette leads us to the upper floor to discover two rooms, one of which is majestic in its size, its parquet floor and its fireplaces, the second decorated with woodwork is a room with a large fireplace. On the 2nd floor, an attic to renovate occupies the entire length of the dwelling.
The second house is mainly reserved for the night space, from the ground floor to the second floor: 7 bedrooms, 3 shower rooms, a bathroom and 3 toilets
This property is very rare and very marked by its Norman style, it is an exceptional property to renovate, undeniable Norman heritage.
