A stunning property set in a tranquil plot of 2095m2. This ‘longere’ was constructed in 1618 and has been sympathetically and professionally renovated to provide spacious and comfortable living accommodation, whilst maintaining its original character and charm.

Approaching the front of the property via a small lane, the drive is gravelled and has ample parking for several vehicles. The front garden is laid to lawn and has a number of mature shrubs and trees surrounding it. There is an old well pump that has been unused and the mains water meter is located here as well. Plenty of room is available for ‘al fresco’ dining with very pleasant views across the countryside.

Ground Floor

The front door leads directly into the main family /dining room of 36m2, where the magnificent Norman fireplace provides a dramatic focal point. To the rear of this room is the galley style kitchen, which is a bright and airy 12m2. The ‘range’ style gas cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer are included. Also situated at the rear of the building is a cloakroom comprising toilet and hand basin and the generous utility room of 6m2, housing the oil fired central heating boiler, Whirlpool washing machine, Whirlpool tumble dryer and Whirlpool chest freezer, all of which are included in the sale. The back door of the property opens in the utility room out onto the back garden, which is laid to lawn with a small copse at the rear of the property. Hidden away is the oil tank for the central heating and hot water. Returning to the front of the house, there is a TV room/sitting room of 18m2. From the TV room there is a solid oak door leading to an impressive 84m2 space, complete with large windows and French sliding doors, overlooking the front garden. Although this room is currently not renovated, all major structural work has been carried out, including the ceiling and the floor. Electricity has been laid on, ready for power points and connection. A space has been left in the ceiling for a second staircase to be fitted.

First Floor

Solid oak stairs leading from the main family room arrive on the generous landing of 9.72m2. To the left of the stairs is a beautifully proportioned double bedroom of 18m2, complete with large built in storage cupboards and a separate dressing room/study of 4.20m2. This could easily be converted into an en suite bathroom if desired. Both the bedroom and dressing room have large windows overlooking the front of the property. Next to this bedroom is the bright and airy family bathroom of 5m2. This comprises a bath with shower overhead, a toilet and wash basin.

To the right of the stairs is the second double bedroom of 14m2. Once again, this room gains lots of light from its large window and views to the front of the property.

A door at the far end of the landing opens onto the upstairs area of 84m2, mirroring the space immediately below. Major structural work has been done and there is potential access to the room below. Also in this room is a mezzanine level, which could be accessed via a staircase and also from the third bedroom in the attic.

Second Floor

A built in doorway on the first floor landing opens to reveal a staircase leading up to the enormous converted attic of 98m2. This would make a truly magnificent master bedroom or alternatively two or even three more bedrooms. There is a separate shower room of 5m2 with a toilet, wash basin and cubicle shower. There are several windows in this room, allowing lots of light in, and the roof is of the height where stooping is not necessary. A door at the far end of the room opens onto the mezzanine level. This is a delightful and stunning room.

In total, there is an amazing 302m2 of living space on three levels.

The property is situated near to the village of Le Fresne Poret, in which there is a shop, a bakery and a bar/tabac. It is only 4kms from the town of Ger, where there is a supermarket, pharmacy, doctor and primary school. It is 10 minutes from the historic town of Mortain, which has a number of primary and secondary schools, a library, selection of shops and supermarkets, swimming pool, sports centre and various other amenities.

The Habitation Tax on this property for 2009 was 268€ and the Foncieres Tax was 750€ per annum.
