Pretty renovated stone house with attached gîte to finish and 2.5 acres
Ideal opportunity for equestrian enthusiasts to buy a renovated two bedroom house with attached 2 storey gîte to finish renovating (75m² on the ground floor) in a quiet rural hamlet on a quiet "no through" road with direct access to a bridlepath and great outriding. Originally the property is believed to have been 2 cottages with attached barns. The house has been renovated and benefits from wood frame double glazed windows, recent wiring, bathroom and kitchen. The floors have been replaced and the property has been renovated with some exposed stone features and beams and wood floors. The property offers potential for home and income once the attached gîte has been completed.
The property is located in Orne in the Normandy region of France. The UNESCO Heritage site of Mont St Michel is 58 km away and the coast at Granville is about 1 1/2 hours' drive. It is about 25 minutes to a 9 hole golf course Golf De Bagnoles - Route de Domfront at Bagnoles sur Orne. The ferry ports are within easy reach - 1 hour to Caen Ouistreham, 4 1/2 hours to Calais, 2 1/2 hours to Le Harvre port or Cherbourg. It is about 2 hours 15 mins to Paris by train. The pretty village of Lonlay l'Abbaye is about 6 km away. More extensive facilities can be found in the historic town of Domfront, which is a 15 minute drive and the town of Flers with a swimming pool, bowling, restaurants, shops and schools (about 10 minutes drive) or Vire (15 minutes drive).
