5 Bed House in Normandy France
La Fauvriere, 14240 Sainte Honorine De Ducy, Normandy France
Fabulous character home
Within 20 minutes drive of Bayeux.
Offering 280m2 of living area, and set in 5 hectares (approx 12 acres) of mature gardens and fields, this imposing stone and brick built property has tremendous potential to be
used as a stud farm or perhaps a small hotel.
Lots of original features and spacious accommodation: entrance foyer,
5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, cloakroom, drawing room with log burning fireplace, dining room, 2 separate kitchens, boot room and cellar.
The main”winter” kitchen which has an electric fired AGA oven range is located on the site of the original farmhouse dairy.
The smaller “summer” kitchen is just off the verandah and patio and isvery useful when entertaining visitors or having a barbeque.
The master bedroom and two secondary bedrooms are on the first floor and are reached by a beautiful original marble staircase.
There are two en-suite bathrooms on this floor and all the rooms have glorious open
views over the surrounding farmland.
The original granary on the second floor was recently converted and boasts a large apartment with two additional bedrooms (easily sleeping 5) and a modern family bathroom.
The landscaped gardens and grounds have several old apple and walnut trees. There is a pond and a smaller ornamental pond and fountain. There are two paddocks with long road frontage on both sides. Further to the rear lay two large fields hedged by mature blackberry bushes. In the fenced stable yard are three stables with a storage area and a 20ft by 14 ft foaling box. The stables are well ventilated but give good shelter from the elements during winter. This summer alone the fields produced 78 round bales of hay .
Several large outbuildings sit in the main drive, with a work room, wood store, Garage and tractor shed. There is also a potential Studio flat with its own rear entrance and small garden. The Gatehouse has a separate entrance and driveway but still needs some internal renovation although one small room has been finished and wired for internet, electricity, telephone and heating. The gatehouse walls and roof are sound and plans are available for a 3 or 4 bedroom house with kitchen/diner, sitting room, bathroom and cloakroom.
The house and outbuildings are constructed of local schist stone and some brick, with Caen stone sills, rounded Caen stone and schist lintels. The front step is granite. There are original tiled floors in the drawing room and entrance foyer and wood floors in the dining room, bedrooms and two of the bathrooms. The master bathroom has a tiled floor as do both kitchens. This has been a wonderful family home for the current owners who have really enjoyed living in the home and all that the Bayeux area has to offer. They believe it would make a superb primary residence for a family with equestrian or business interests.
