UNDER OFFER AHIN-SP-001313 Nr Flers 61700 Quality 2 bed barn conversion with over an acre in quiet rural position
This lovely detached house was renovated just over 10 years ago for the present owners by local Artisans and the quality of the work shows throughout the house. The house is light and airy with plenty of windows looking out over the garden and paddocks. At present there are two bedrooms but there is ample room to create another on the mezzanine if required. The house was completely re-roofed, had a new kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, windows and wiring. The two stables and arrangement of paddocks would make the property suitable for a couple of ponies or sheep. There is access to the local forest at Halouze St Clair (with many circuits) and the GR22 route which forms part of a network of bridleways across France less than 1 km away. Viewing is highly recommended.
The cottage is located 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.
