Peaceful Farmhouse with over 8.5 acres and outbuildings

The property has been renovated by the present owners of the last 19 years and is situated with the majority of the land in front of it.   There are several useful, sizeable outbuildings.  It would be suitable for equestrian enthusiasts or as a smallholding.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a quiet rural hamlet outside a small village located in the department of Orne.  The lane which leads to it is very quiet and the house is surrounded by fields.  The nearest shops are about 3 km away and include a bakery, small supermarket, post office, newsagents, bar, hairdresser, vet and garage.  The medieval town of Domfront is 6km distant and 62 km from Alencon, the department capital. The village  is 228 km from Paris (or 2 hours 15 minutes by train) and 324 km from the port at Calais or about 1 hour 30 minutes to the port at Caen Ouistreham.   Facilities can be also be found at the spa town of Bagnoles de l’Orne (22 km).  The nearest large town is Flers (24km).  The coast at Granville is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes away.
