An outstanding Maison de Maître in the heart of the Normandy-Maine Natural Park, with large secluded garden, house in the garden for renovation, and excellent letting/holiday opportunities., Orne, Normandy
This unusual property is a substantial Maison de Maître in large, secluded grounds in the historic town of Carrouges. Although just a minute's walk from shops, banks, schools and healthcare facilities, the south-facing garden looks onto the beautiful countryside around the famous Carrouges Château. Currently the owner lives in a spacious private apartment over three floors, comprising: a large sitting/dining room, a superb kitchen with a large dining area, a scullery, an office, five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a shower room. There are three apartments for rental (one currently let), and a fourth apartment awaiting renovation, together with an office/commercial space on the ground floor (with separate access) which also requires renovation, and which could provide additional income. There are two separate attic areas, one accessed from the main residence and the other accessible from the leased apartment. Two large cellars provide ample storage, including a wine cellar, and contain the central heating boiler and fuel store. Outside, two garages and a garden store provide further storage, and there is a picturesque garden pavilion with square tower, which could be renovated to provide additional accommodation or a fantastic 'garden office'.
