REDUCED PRICE - OUR VENDORS ARE HIGHLY MOTIVATED TO SELL: This delightful stone cottage, which we believe was built by English knights in the 15th century has been beautifully renovated, retaining its charm and character throughout. With a traditional facade and mature garden at the back it is many peoples' dream of their French country cottage.

The house has a lovely farmhouse kitchen with woodburning stove and a cozy living room the ground floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a family bathroom and a little study. In addition to the house there is a beautiful old stone 'dependance' which clearly has development potential, subject, of course, to normal planning procedures.


The house is in a very pretty rural area, the Parc Naturel Regional Normandie-Maine, with extensive forests near by which offer plenty of good country for walking. In addition, as in most rural communities,there are several marked footpaths in the immediate area. 

The attractive spa town of Bagnoles de lOrne and the magnificent 14th century Chateau de Carrouges are also close at hand. Supermarket shopping as well as smaller businesses such as boulangeries, patisseries and charcuteries are available in the nearby towns of La Ferte Mace and Pre-en-Pail while Alencon, the chief town of the Departement of Orne, is only just over 30kms away. Our little local village of Lignieres-Orgeres boasts a very good boulangerie/patisserie and general store plus an excellent hairdresser!
