A beautiful property, including a large main house, a roomy second house, and enormous grounds by a pretty river. In need of renovation, but with nearly unlimited potential.

The property is located a short distance south-west of Albert, in the village of Treux in the Somme. The village is conveniently close to both Albert and Amiens, with all their transport links and services. Four motorways serve the area – A1, A2, A16 and A29.

The village has a primary school and a few shops, whereas other schools, shops and services are located in nearby villages and towns.

Geographical location: Albert (7 km), Amiens (25 km), Haute-Picardie TGV station (25 km), Lille (96 km), Roissy CDG (124 km), Mons, BE (124 km), Paris (144 km), Calais (159 km)

At the very heart of the village we find a large gate, beyond which a private drive disappears into the property. Driving down the lane, we have the river to our right. The first house we get to is the smaller of the two, so we carry on a bit further. In the middle of a large lawn, we come to the main house. Albeit in need of some TLC, the former grandeur is still very much in evidence. Let’s take a look inside!

On the ground floor, we find a large hallway. Facing the south is a double living/dining room (each with its own fireplace) with wonderful views of the garden. Also on this floor there is a kitchen, a back kitchen, two additional rooms, and a WC.

On the first floor a landing leads to four double bedrooms, two of which have walk-in closets. The master bedroom has a south-facing balcony. In addition there is a family bathroom and a WC.

The top floor is a cavernous, convertible loft. Underneath the house there is a basement. The central heating is wood/coal fuelled. Now, for the second house on the property: In its current form it has been divided into three dwellings. However, as this is also in need of renovation a description of its contents will suffice.

The ground floor has an entry, a hallway, two kitchens, a bathroom, a bedroom and a workshop. On the first floor we find three bedrooms, a living room, an equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and two WCs. There is also loft.

This building can remain separate dwellings, it can be turned into one large one, or used as guesthouses. In addition to the two houses, there are a number of other buildings on the property.

The grounds are enormous, but also practical. It is perfectly possible to make parts of it private for one house or the other. There are two woods, one of them next to the river. Also, there are large, open parts.

This truly is a property that needs to be seen. Please contact the agent to arrange a viewing.

    Whenever I see gate posts and hedges like this I think of magic and adventure.

        It is. It just looks like maybe the current tenant hasn’t really kept up with it the last few years. Such a cool place. I guess there was a lot more to the village before the wars. That was a bad spot to be in in the early 20th century. The memorial down the road is interesting. Wish I could find more info..

      Really pretty. And if you go over the bridge, there’s a beautifully clipped hedge on the right – could prob be classified as topiary.

    I realize that only a few interior shots were taken, but I haven’t seen a single thing I would change… I love the ever so slightly shabby gentility of it all. It is absolutely perfect. Sometimes I think it is quite sad that I am not rich. 🙁 I would buy it an immediately set to work on my novel.

Thank you – thank you – thank you Kelly!

        ♥️?♥️ …. it’s a beautiful island! I have never been there but all four of my grandparents were from there. My fantasy is to have a home near Syracusa on the east coast where they all came from …. if only I could win that lottery!!!

        Mine were from Naples and San Mango sul Colore. I look at Italian properties all the time. I will send links when I find ones of interest. The trulli in Puglia are amazing.

    I keep looking at the brick structure and wondering what its original function was. I love the setting as much as the buildings – in a lovely little spot just a short drive to Amiens and its awesome cathedral, and restaurants!!1s0x47fa21b36c8d581f%3A0x15391b75607e2c44&hl=en
