Property Description

This beautiful property is situated in tranquil countryside between Mortain and Saint Hilaire-du-Harcouët in Basse Normandy. It is close to the main road between these two towns, but is idyllically quiet, and a haven for wildlife. It would suit those wanting to be as self-sufficient as possible, nature-lovers, horse or sheep owners, and those who enjoy some DIY. The house and barn have been part-renovated, and because it was bought in 2004 as a very run down property with no services at all, all renovations and fittings at the property date from 2005 or later. The property has 12 newly installed functioning solar panels on the house roof. Electricity and two logburners are the source of heating. (Bear in mind that the figure for electricity consumption includes the use by the constant flow of BnB visitors, and that the solar panels reduce the impact of consumption when reimbursed) There is no gas or oil at the property. The exterior of both house and barn are in good condition, and interior works are underway in the house. An extension was completed in 2012 which lends itself to being let out for Airbnb – a successful business has been run by the owner as a superhost with Airbnb for the last 3 years. The house comprises a large upstairs bedroom and bathroom, a second family bedroom in the extension, a conservatory/sunroom downstairs, an office/lounge, a library/spare bedroom, with bathroom next to it, a large diningroom, a kitchen and pantry area, a carport, an outdoor chalet which is used as an extra bedroom, a large separate barn with upstairs and downstairs sections for machine, tools and other storage. One end has been a stable in the past. There are also various sheds in the grounds. The whole is landscaped with English garden, vegetable garden, orchard, woodland, meadow, fishpond, well with an electric pump. Mains water is connected and used in the house and grounds, as well as the water from the well. The fosse septique conforms to the modern requirements, and was newly fitted after the property was purchased by the current owners. Neighbours are a farm and a small house, and other scattered houses a distance away. The outlook is over neighbouring fields and property’s own woodland, orchard, and gardens. There is a primary school in the commune and lycees in both the nearest towns. There is a small shop/boulangerie within 2kms. Ill-health is the reason for the sale. The owners would far rather not move, as they love it!
