Old Farmhouse with renovated gite and attached cottage, outbuildings and paddock

The gîte has been beautifully renovated between 2015-2016 including new windows, doors, flooring, electricity, kitchen, bathroom, etc. The attached cottage has had a new roof and the electricity and water have been brought through and it has new windows.  It is ready to be renovated as another one bedroom gîte or it could be joined to the existing one via an internal door.  There is a separate detached stone Farmhouse to renovate – the 1st Floor has 2 separate areas of the same size of the one you have described. There is a room  above the Cave/storeroom which also has a fireplace in situ. From the outside, there is a French door and a window to this extra room.  Several years ago the back section of the gable roof had been replaced with new rafters and beams.  There is also a large barn, old bakery and a paddock.  The land extends to the bottom of the hill on either side of the lane and the property is in a quiet rural hamlet.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is on the outskirts of Domfront which has comprehensive shopping facilities, a hospital, Schools, etc. It is in the Orne region of Normandy near the Calvados border and is surrounded by wooded hills and valleys that form part of the Normandie-Maine Regional National Park, an area of natural beauty that extends to some 257 000 hectares. The rugged Brittany/Normandy coastline is just over an hour’s drive away and there are several lakes with beaches within half an hour by car. Bagnoles-de-l’Orne, with its spa centre, casino, lake and sports centre, is also within easy reach (23 km).  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is 70 km from the property.  It is 64 km from Alençon, the department capital and 225 km from Paris.  The closest ferry port is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour 15 minutes) and the channel tunnel at Calais is about 4 1/2 hours by car.
