Ref.3960 : French manor for sale in Lower Normandy.
This elegant Victorian-inspired property is located in the heart of the Normandie-Maine regional park in the Orne department, adjacent to the Andaines national forest. It is close to a small village which has kept most of its shops and services and a few minutes from the famous spa of Bagnoles de l'Orne.
Overlooking a beautiful wooded park, it enjoys an extensive view of the surrounding countryside, preserving its privacy and its total tranquility; this small manor house will offer a relaxing family place easily accessible for a weekend ... or for life.
Built on a basement with two identical levels and a generous attic, the manor house has a brick facade with numerous openings decorated with ashlar work. Flanked by two fine turrets with pointed caps, covered with a slate roof with 4 sides decorated with the legendary "devil's teeth", this manor house presents a balanced architecture and delivers a feeling of refinement, proper to the so-called "Belle époque". A double flight staircase completes the ensemble... with discretion.
With a living space of approximately 240sqm, excluding the upper floor, the property is distributed as follows
Total basement including several rooms with multiple uses (boiler room, fruit room, cellar, storage room...).
First floor raised by a few steps: large central entrance in cement tiles serving on its left a living room with parquet floor, fireplace and molded ceiling (23sqm); office or bedroom with parquet floor (15sqm).
On its right, dining room with marble fireplace and molded ceiling (23sqm); modern kitchen (15sqm) with tiled floor, open on a scullery/office (10+5m²).
1st floor: access to the first floor by a beautiful oak staircase and wrought iron balusters leading to a large T-shaped gallery serving 4 beautiful and very luminous bedrooms (15,15,23,23sqm) and 2 bathrooms/WC.
2nd floor: identical distribution, including 2 bedrooms (former service rooms) and 2 attics with potential.
Nice ceiling heights between 3,50 and 3,60 m
The outbuildings include :
A large stone outbuilding under tile flanked by an astonishing belvedere, containing various sheds, garages, workshop, having probably constituted the former stables.
A small house of about 40sqm on the ground in stone under mechanical tiles including 4 small rooms on 2 levels, to be restored in totality (visible presence of an old network of water and electricity).
The property is in a dominant position in a beautiful English-style park that is sufficiently clear to allow beautiful perspectives and to highlight the beautiful species of trees that are hundreds of years old. The green space of the surrounding lawns is enlivened by lively hedges, boxwoods and flowerbeds. An elegant pool sits at the front of the property, calling for inspiration, or simply for rest.
A pretty wrought iron gate on the roadside deserves to be restored from its probable past use as a noble entrance.
Two beautiful adjoining pastures leave any opportunity to shelter a horse or some goats.
The whole constitutes an entity of about 4.10 acres (1ha 66a).
