An extraordinary historic property in the heart of the old quarter of the bustling university city of Alençon, complete with a self-contained studio and a suite of consulting rooms or offices., Orne, Normandy
This unique town house has the feel of a small chateau, from entering via a massive oak door into a courtyard, through the imposing, high-ceilinged reception rooms, to the granite spiral staircase to the upper floors. However, this is not a museum piece - tasteful modernisation and improvement has created a comfortable family home. In addition, a separate small building is suitable for letting or for an independent family member. Next to the main courtyard, but with its own entrance from the street, a suite of consulting rooms could be used for a variety of professional uses. The surrounding area has a wealth of historical buildings, and benefits from the recent upgrade of Alençon's city centre. There are good restaurants nearby, and the centre has all the amenities associated with a university town.
