Located in the heart of the popular town of Alencon on the borders of Normandy and Pays de la Loire with excellent access to the Normandy ports as well as Le Mans, Paris and the Loire Valley this is an ideal lock-and-leave investment property. Perfect as a permanent or holiday home with very good rental potential (seasonal or longer term).
Possibly the only one of it’s kind in Alencon this property dates back to the 15th century. The building with original tower has three floors, today we are offering the 1st floor 100 sqm apartment with an option for the 2nd floor apartment which is also available (off-market).
The 1st floor apartment comes with an allocated parking space within the private gated front courtyard, 2 storage “cellars” below the building and an exceptional circa 200 sqm private terrace with direct access from the kitchen. Views to the front are over the courtyard and beyond the gates into the old part of Alencon where you are spoilt for choice on local amenities (bakers, restaurants, shops, boutiques, etc...) all within a short stroll.
The stairs within the original tower wind gently upwards bringing you to a landing/cloak room space on the first floor with the main entrance into the apartment. Within you arrive in the living room. A period piece with original beam work and quarry tiled floor, a double aspect room with twin windows over the rear terrace as well as views to the front. This room is large enough to be comfortably divided into dining area, lounge and TV space. There is also a “hidden cupboard” providing additional storage space.
To the left of this room we have the master bedroom – also double aspect (front and rear) with original beams, stone wall with feature fireplace and tiled floors. This bedroom has its own private bathroom offering twin wash basins; shower and bath.
The other side of the lounge we discover the 2nd bedroom equally with its own shower room, a separate WC and good sized family kitchen; well equipped with breakfast bar and fitted equipment. Stable doors from the kitchen lead to the terrace. The current owners have divided this large area into 4 parts: an astro turf part for their new baby to play, a graveled BBQ area, a formal terrace al-fresco area and even a vegetable/plant area with “garden shed”.
An ideal base from which to enjoy Alencon itself as well as the surrounding areas.
