Full Description

Period detached house with cottage, gardens and outbuildings for sale near the Normandy/Mayenne border in western France. This unique property has many period features and has been sympathetically restored by the present owner. There are marble fireplaces, oak floors, exposed beams, plaster decorations and metalwork… As they form an integral part of the house, crystal chandeliers, large mirrors, period furniture and framed copies of old master paintings are offered as part of the sale.

This large family house could easily be divided into two residences or a Bed and Breakfast. It is set in 5 acres and has large enclosed gardens with mature trees and shrubs and a well established organic vegetable garden. There is an immediate income from the tenanted cottage for the new purchaser - the tenants are an elderly French couple who provide a guardian presence at the property.
