The pretty farming village of Maison Ponthieu lies in the heart of the triangle formed by the market towns of Auxi le Chateau, Abbeville and Créçy en Ponthieu at the lower edge of the Baie de Somme (a major wildlife area and UNESCO World Heritage site).
A short drive of around 15 mins will get you to the junction of the A16 (Calais to Paris) and A28 (Abbeville to Rouen) motorways. Trains to Paris from Abbeville run regularly and the trip is about 1h 15mins.
Remote controlled iron gates lead you into the courtyard of this stunning home that is otherwise completely surrounded by a stone and brick wall giving privacy and seclusion.
A small entrance hall in the main house leads into the fully equipped kitchen or to the right into the magnificent lounge with windows to both sides giving natural sunlight all day and a traditional wood burning stove for those winter evenings.
To the rear of the house, a corridor from the kitchen leads to a separate WC and then to the library and office. To the front is the dining room with views over the courtyard and terrace.
From here, the second entrance hall gives access to the separate appartment and the cellar. The appartment comprises a fitted kitchen, lounge, bathroom and two double bedrooms.
Upstairs, corridors take you to a bathroom and separate WC, four large double bedrooms and a loft space for storage.
Outside, across the courtyard is second house, formarly the notaire's office, that needs conversion.
With its own entrance hall, the ground floor has a large space that would give a lounge, kitchen, dining room etc and then a spiral staircase to the first floor that would give bedrooms and bathroom facilities.
A garage and other buildings complete the courtyard along with a pétanque pitch.
A large, lawned garden planted with fruit trees completes this gorious home. Early viewing is recommended and visits are by appointment only with the agent.
