A pretty and welcoming, detached, three bedroom house, with an unusual feature of a large upstairs lounge.  Situated in a peaceful but not isolated position, with a vibrant town location with nearby friendly and helpful neighbours. Near an active village with a renowned restaurant, boulangerie and hairdresser and less than three miles from Gorron which has all amenities.  Mayenne is 20 minutes away by car, Laval (trains/TGV, direct links to Paris) 40 minutes.

There is a living space of 120 square metres and 1/3 acre garden. Garden laid mainly to grass, bordered by trees and stocked with shrubs and flowers; patio areas.

Pleasant and very useful conservatory/office/utility. Large dining/kitchen area fully equipped,
Spacious(32 sq m) lounge, westward facing.

An attractive open wooden staircase connects the three levels.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and one single. Bathroom with power shower basin, w.c., immersion heater and heated towel rail.
Most windows are double glazed with wooden frames. Extensive and effective insulation/dry lining has been installed wherever practical.
Outside insulated and heated bathroom, with bath, w.c. and hand-basin - accessed from the garden but readily incorporated with currently closed off door to the conservatory.
Heating by wood-burning stoves supplemented by installed thermostatically controlled electric heaters as/if necessary.
The lounge wood stove (rated at 7kW) also supplies heat to four radiators, two in the lounge, one on the upstairs landing and one in the 2nd bedroom.
Excellent, dry, cellar/workshop that has been correctly insulated and lined with entrance area floor left as original for garden equipment storage.

A near end-of-life Mountfield self-propelled lawn mower included, other items and furniture open for negotiation.
6'x8' garden shed. Parking under a carport.

This is a most attractive part of France but in no way remote. The nearby Colmont River is enchanting (free wheel down the lane and then a short walk)
as is the Mayenne river with its wonderful tow-path cycle route. We notice that Gorron has acquired four 'Sport Motifs' on the signs!

Super U supermarket 3 km away, which is excellent. A useful English food shop, with good prices, has recently opened in Gorron too. Local cinemas and and each town has an 'espace culturel' where many interesting events take place.
