Grounds and Outbuilding

The property sits on a plot of 2582m² with a large courtyard to the front with views over the valley and beyond. The property offers a driveway leading up to the property with garden to one side with lawn and some mature plantings. The driveway opens up into the courtyard which gives onto a car port for two vehicles. The garden to the rear of the property provides a seating area and is shielded from the old railway line by trees. This railway line has been converted into a track for walking/horse riding/ walking etc and provides over 40km of walking and also joins up with the towpath alongside the river Mayenne providing a further 80km. The remaining garden provides a beautiful old lime tree and various other trees and bushes.

The original outbuilding which housed the toilets for the station is situated in the grounds. This building still houses toilets (5.4m x 3.0m) which are connected to the mains drainage and are ideal if working in the garden or housing a party! The remaining part of the building is where there was a technical workshop (2.0m x 2.4m). This building requires some renovation.


Environmentally Friendly and Energy Efficient
This large station was built in 1846 in order to supply the large Citroen garage at Flers, which was never situated at Flers! Therefore the large station hasn't seen anything like the use it was built for. The current owners have lovingly restored the property, to a very high standard. The property boasts a recent zinc roof, cellulose insulation in the roof and all exterior walls have been insulated with natural hemp and therefore benefit not only from the traditional look of the hemp, but also from all its many advantages. The central heating system is run from geothermal energy and therefore is not only environmentally friendly, but also energy efficient.
The property provides all mains services and there is the ability to use well water. The toilets are already connected to the well water, thereby reducing water bills. The electricity comes from a pole in the garden and runs underground up to the house in order that the wires are not attached to the outside of the house. The property exterior has been maintained and has kept its look as a train station, however the highly sought after Tuffeau stones used to build the property would benefit from some renovation to complete the property.
