Imposing fully renovated Farmhouse with stone barns and 1.25 acres of garden in quiet rural position.

The original part of the  property is believed to have been built in about 1600 with subsequent extensions.  It has been completely renovated and benefits from versatile accommodation which could easily be used for a B&B, double glazed windows with shutters, partial rewiring, a new kitchen and heating.  It is about 300m from the nearest bridleway making it ideal for riding, walking and cycling.  Further land of about an acre may be available by separate negotiation.  The house and barns are built in a "U" shape with the drive in the middle and all are in very good condition.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The cottage is situated in the Orne department of Basse Normandie in the north west of France. The area is within the Normandy National Parks region and the village itself is very pretty with a hairdresser, bar, bakery and small shop.   The nearest major town with all amenities, including a mainline train station with direct access to Paris is at Flers which is 15 km away.  Closer to home is the Medieval town of Domfront (about 5 minutes' drive) which caters to all every day needs, including doctor's surgery, pharmacies, schools, shops, bars and restaurants.  The renowned Spa town of Bagnoles de l'Orne is about a 20 minute drive from the property with lake, restaurants, and 9-hole Golf Course.  The property is 89 km away from the ferry port at Caen Ouistreham, the closest port and just over 4 hours' drive from Calais.
