Whilst on the opposite side of the hallway a door leads into a smaller living room of 24m2 with open fireplace, tiled floor, double glazed window and shutter, a radiator and a door to access the steps down to the parking area. There is a door from this smaller living room through to the kitchen of 15m2 which has a sink and units, a tiled floor, a radiator and a door to access the steps down to the parking area and; another door to access the cellar under virtually the whole house which is made up of several rooms which includes an old fireplace, the central heating wood fired boiler which works but which may need replacing in time, the water heater, a utility area and of course a place to keep your wine cool!
Back in the hallway, the oak staircase leads to the 1st floor landing of approx. 12m2 and to the 4 bedrooms of approx. 18m2, 16m2, 13.5m2 and 12m2 each having an original oak floor, the largest bedroom having 2 double glazed windows with shutters, the other 3 bedrooms having 1, a radiator and a good view of either the garden and/or the land/countryside.

From the 1st floor landing, you can access the attic of approx. 60m2 which also has an original oak floor and large double window. This is a large space which has the potential to be converted into a large 5th bedroom and an en suite or perhaps two smaller bedrooms with a shower room/w.c.
Outside, the property is accessed via the rural lane that passes onto its own asphalt entrance to the parking area at the rear of the house. There are two outbuildings, one of which is a garage/storage in breeze block and wood with a slate roof located at the entrance to the property and the 2nd larger one which is located on the rural lane boundary edge of the plot in wood, stone and colombage is made up of two garages one open approx. 36m2, one with sliding door of approx. 15m2 and a large barn of approx. 80m2 with wooden doors to the front. There is an open side extension of wooden struts under a tiled roof.
This property comes with electric, telephone point, wood fired central heating and has always had water from the Well so no bills! however, as the mains water connection is close by, it would be possible to connect up to the service after purchase. The property drainage is by an old form of septic tank therefore as it doesn't comply to modern standards, a new system will need to be installed in the year following the date of final signature.
OLD HOUSE FOR COMPLETE RENOVATION On the opposite side of the rural lane to main house sits the old stone house with slate roof dating back to 1674 for complete renovation. Entering through the door on the left hand side of the property, there is a hallway of approx. 18m2 with a door leading into the main living room of approx. 60m2 with open fireplace, a window, a trap door to access the cellar and stairs to the 1st floor which are sadly unusable. There is another room of approx. 24m2 to the right hand side of the hallway which houses the connection and tank for the Well water (Well provides water to the main house from here) There is electric on at this property which is being provided by the main house at present. Entering through the door on the right hand side of the property, there is another room of approx. 24m2 with access via 9 steps up to the 1st floor over the whole property which is approx. 126m2 and has an old fireplace, a window on the end wall and one at the front. Outside, there are 3 outbuildings, an old pig sty with a tiled roof located to the left hand side of the house and a large barn/old stables of approx. 196m2 and an old bread oven on the land to the rear of the house which then continues on behind the bread oven to make up the total plot of approx.8780m2. As with the main house, this old house has always used the water from the Well but again as the mains water connection is close by it would be possible to connect up to the service after purchase. An electric meter could be installed to make this a completely separate property from the main house or leave as is! A drainage system will need to be installed if this property is going to be renovated into a habitable house.
Lastly, there is a possibility of purchasing as an extra to all the above; an old detached stable in stone and colombage of approx.90m2 which has a rear open extension set on a plot of land of approx.500m2 located on the opposite side of the rural lane to the main and the old house.
One house to live in, just needs redecoration to taste and some modernisation, one old house to renovate which has bags of potential to become either one habitable property or perhaps two rental cottages plus several outbuildings, land with each property for gardens, veggie patches and/or animals all located in this our lovely area of South West Normandy, what more you could want!
Close to a village with a restaurant and within easy driving distance to other surrounding villages such as Barenton and Saint Georges de Rouelley and to larger towns such as the lovely market towns of Saint Hilaire du Harcouet, medieval Domfront and Mortain. Many walking, cycling and riding paths plus much more to explore locally and only 45/50mins to the start of the coast at Avranches.
