Two Wonderful Normandy Cottages With 5 Acres, Private Meadows, Small Fishing Lake, Edge Of Village Setting
This delightful ensemble consists of two cottages set in 5 acres of private meadows with lawned gardens and a small fishing lake, situated on the outskirts of the village of Saint-Julien-le-Faucon, just 10 minutes from Lisieux, the sub-prefecture of the department of Calvados. Honfleur and the beaches of Deauville and Trouville are just 40 minutes drive, and it is just 2 hours to Paris by train or autoroute.
The main house has 150m2
habitable space. The main feature of the property is the 45m2
full height living area, which reaches into the beams of the roof, with a huge fire place. There is also a second dining / sitting room as well as the kitchen. There is a downstairs bathroom with separate WC. The master bedroom is on the mezzanine in the main ‘sejour’ and there are two further bedrooms with an upstairs shower room / WC. The house benefits from central heating throughout, with a combi-boiler
The Maison d’Amis is adjacent and has its own garden facing away from the main house with car parking and a barbecue area with table and chairs. The ground floor has a 42m2
living and dining area, which incorporates the kitchen. Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms, and a shower room and WC.
There is land to the front of the properties leading to the main road through the village on its way to St Pierre sur Dives. There is also a field to the rear of the property behind the small lake, which goes down to a disused railway line offering excellent walks into the Normandy countryside.
The village offers a variety of local shops, and has a baker, butcher, pharmacy, mini-supermarket, bar/newsagent, bistro, and a gourmet restaurant, all within easy walking distance of the houses.
Notes. The property was bought by the sellers in 2000, and they have made many improvements since then, including the full renovation of the Maison d’Amis, which was little more than a shell. Whilst they make visits for holidays when they can, they have never lived there on a permanent basis, so it has been rented out when they are not there, giving a rental income of some 14,000. It is largely seasonal (Summer), but there are rentals throughout the year.
