2 Detached houses to renovate with over an acre and barns

This property offers potential for two couples to buy between them, or for multi-generational living or a main house and gîte.  Both houses are of similar size and both require complete renovation.  They both have attached barns which would be suitable to entend into (subject to planning).  There are no close neighbours and there are 3 large barns.  The whole plot is over an acre (final meterage to be confirmed as the Land Surveyor has been in to divide one of the land parcels.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the Orne department (Normandy region) in the north of France at 62 km from Alencon, the department capital.  Local services can be found at nearby Saint Mars d’Egrenne 7 km, with butchers, bakers and general store and Passais-la-Conception (9 km).  More extensive amenities can be found at Domfront (13 km) with all shops, schools, supermarkets, etc.  The nearest large town is Flers (29km). The coast at Granville is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes away.    Also nearby, you will find Lassay -les-Chateaux (34km), with its picturesque castle and lake. Bagnoles de l’Orne, about 30km away, is a spa resort set around a lake with a casino, many restaurants and shops.   La-Ferté-Macé (35km away) is a pretty town with a large Leclerc supermarket. The town has a leisure lake with a swimming beach, a climbing wall and a par-three golf course.   The larger town of Mayenne is 40 km away.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is 65km and the D-Day landing beaches are just over an hour’s drive away.  The nearest mainline train station is at Flers with the TGV at Laval (72km).
