Suprisingly spacious detached village house with landscaped garden, annexe and swimming pool

This house has been owned by the same family for nearly 25 years.  It would make a beautiful full time family home or could be let as a gîte.  The original house was extended in 1978 and it now offers 6 bedrooms approached via 3 staircases which offers a high degree of privacy and would suit multi-generational living.  The swimming pool is a delightful central focus point from the main living accommodation and it was installed in about 2008/9 with a glass security screen, large patio area and solar heating with an automatic switch over link to the central heating boiler if required.   Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated about 10 minutes away from the town of Carrouges. La Ferté-Macé  with all amenities, Supermarkets, Schools, Bowling, Lake,  Hospitals, shops, etc is 20 minutes away.  Pré-en-Pail is 15 minutes away and the renowned Spa town of Bagnoles-de-l’Orne is about 20 minutes away. The ferry ports of Caen (1 hour 15 minutes), Cherbourg (2 hours 15 minutes) and Le Havre (2 hours)  are within easy driving distances and Calais for the Tunnel is about 4 hours away.
