Stone farmhouse and barn in rural France, Mayenne, Pays de la Loire
Space to live, holiday or develop a business in the peaceful French countryside.
In a cul-de-sac and on land of a little over 4900 square metres (approx. 1.92 acres), this partially renovated « longère » is a comforable drive from the ports of St Mâlo, Cherbourg and Caen, and just 10 miles or so from the Brittany town of Fougères with its medieval centre and modern facilities.
The property has had significant renovation and improvement but the project has unfortunately been interrupted by illness. The relatively modest price reflects the fact that, although perfectly habitable, there are still works to be completed.
On the ground floor there is a living room, kitchen, « cave », shower room with WC and basin, cloakroom/rear lobby, laundry room and (former) garage designated as a possible breakfast room. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, bathroom with WC and basin, landing and walk-in clothes store. The ground floor area is about 120 square metres and the first floor about 54 square metres living area. The house has background electric heating with woodburning stoves in the kitchen and living room. The house has broadband internet access and installation of fibre optic cables is expected in the near future.
There is an attached stone barn of about 82 square metres, with a stable section and loft, which could be incorporated into the house, developed as gîte(s) or used for business purposes.
The almost 2 acres of land is divided into : two areas of paddock; a small orchard; established vegetable plots and some ornamental plantings which have all been cultivated on organic principles for more than twenty years. There are two greenhouses, two sheds and a small polytunnel. There is a small copse which is a useful supply of firewood and is an effective area of shelter for wildlife. The house has mains water and there is a well with an automatic pump for all other purposes.
All this for around £90,000-00 ! (€108500) plus notaire’s fees
