Authentic country farmhouse with beautiful views in a rural position near a village

This house has been enjoyed by the present owners and their family for nearly 40 years.  It stands in the middle of the surrounding fields, near a lake and has over half an acre of gardens.  The house offers quirky, character full living accommodation with a versatile layout.  Viewing is highly recommended.

Local amenities can be found at La Ferrière-aux-Etangs (2.5 km) with medical centre, pharmacy, small supermarket, butchers, bank, bakery, 2 bar/restaurants and a hairdressers. The property is found in Orne in the Normandy region of France. The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is about 70 km away.    There is a school bus which stops near the house and goes to Flers and Domfront.  The house is in a lovely village, between Domfront and Bagnoles De L’Orne. It is located near La Foret D’Andaines.  More extensive facilities can be found in the medieval town of Domfront (10 minutes in the car) and in the tourist town of Bagnoles de l’Orne (17 km).  It is 52 km from the department capital, Alençon.  The nearest ferry port is at Caen Ouistreham which is about 1 hour 20 minutes’ drive.
