Stone house with attached barns to renovate

This detached house offers huge potential to create spacious family accommodation by extending into the attached barns, subject to planning.  It stands at the end of a quiet hamlet surrounded by fields.  There are useful detached barns.  The property will need renovating.  Viewing is highly recommended.

Lonlay L’Abbaye, a picturesque village in rural Basse Normandie. In the village there is a bank, pharmacy, doctor, butcher, bakery, small supermarket, hairdresser and postoffice. There is a large and very good Intermarche in Domfront (8km) for more comprehensive shopping and the baker in nearby St Front is open on Monday when the Lonlay bakers is closed. The baguette machine outside the Lonlay bakers is stocked on days that they bake for ‘out of hours’ supply.  This property 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.
