Full description:

An attractive, spacious 3, potentially 4, bedroom traditional stone property pleasantly set in 14220 m2 of grounds, which includes areas of landscaping plus amenity land. In addition there are barns/outbuildings and stabling for up to 7 horses. Furthermore, there is an opportunity to purchase an additional two hectares with a barn located nearby for 15,000 euros. The property is located in a small hamlet near to a village, all within a beautiful rolling landscape with far reaching views. All the essential requirements can be found in nearby Lonlay L'abbaye while the larger town of Flers is only 15 minutes away for a more extensive shopping excursion.

The house is in very good condition and is tastefully appointed. Although it has traditional appeal, it offers some attractive contemporary features. It would make a spacious family home with the potential for bed and breakfast, activity courses and equestrian activities; a real fund of opportunities. The property is not being offered for sale as a business, but some useful income opportunities do exist. For example, the current owner has developed a scheme of student holidays and other letting opportunities.

Our opinion: This property is authentic to the region and offers multiple opportunities. It is presented in excellent condition and is well located for a tourist style accommodation business offering equestrian facilities.


Beauchene is a small village within the larger commune of Tinchebray-Bocage in the Orne department. It is within 1.5 hours of the Normandy beaches and cross channel ferries. The commune is surrounded by rolling Normandy countryside with extensive views and historic towns and villages.The house makes a great base from which to visit the Normandy landing beaches, Mont St Michel, the Normandy bocage and the beautiful Suisse Normande with it water sports activities. If you want to take advantage of the equestrian potential the property offers then there are extensive off-road rural rides in the surrounding area. The surrounding area also benefits from an excellent road and travel infrastructure and it is easy to get about. The fashionable resort of Granville is only about 40 minutes away and boasts a superb beach. Flers offers many amenities and has train station. In summary, this is a very popular part of northern France that offers excellent value for money.
