The property sits in 1 hectare of land which wraps around the properties and is intersected by 2 driveways so the cottage and main house each has their own driveway.
The land is currently used for horses but lends itself to a multitude of other potential uses.
Consisting of mainly paddocks the land also comprises an orchard with mostly Normandy cider apple trees but there are also a few eating/cooking apple trees
Attached to the main house are 3 outbuildings which could either be left as their current purpose as storage, used as an extension of the main house, converted to a separate house - the opportunities are endless!
At the end of the property are two further corrugated iron outbuildings one currently used as a hay barn and other as a woodshed.
Within the orchard is a further outbuilding with a fireplace which incorporates a chicken coup. Again this could be left as it is, used for animals or with relevant planning consent used as further living accommodation.
Barn/stables - at the back of the land is a purpose built barn which is currently used as stabling with mains water and electricity connected.
The local commune of Bernieres Le Patry has a maternal school (3-6 year olds) and a shop/post office.
Tinchebray has good local amenities such a supermarket, vet (highly recommended), doctor surgery (also very good), bank, post office, garage, restaurants etc
Viessiox has an elementaire school (6 -11 yrs) this is where our son currently goes and we are very pleased with this school
Vire and Flers are the biggest local towns and both have good facilities including large supermarkets, retail outlets, excellent swimming pools etc
Vassy is approx. 10 mins drive and has a lovely small swimming pool, sports centre, smaller selection of shops.
There is good access to ferry ports with Caen approx. 1 hour drive, Cherbourg 1 1/2 hour drive and Le Havre approx. 1hr 40 mins.
The beaches are approx. 45 mins by car and there are many accessible local attractions.
We feel this property offers masses of versatility. There are 2 houses already renovated and ready to move into with one house as the main residence and the other offering potential for long or short term rental, accommodation for foreign language students, spare accommodation for visitors - for example.
The outbuildings attached to the main house offer an excellent opportunity to either extend the current living accommodation, turn it into another house, continue it's current use as storage, use it for business/hobbies....
There is also an outbuilding with potential for conversion in the orchard or left as is for animals/gardening/storage.
The stables have mains water and electricity and there is planning to further extend this building if required.
The land is mainly paddocks with an orchard. Although currently used for horses the land is equally suited for a smallholding, landscaped gardens, plenty of space for a swimming pool, lots of separate gardens for a gite complex etc.
Both properties utilise fosse septiques. The cottage has its own separate fosse which was installed professionally and passed by SPANC.
The main house uses a fosse situated in the orchard and this has not yet been inspected by SPANC. We have not looked into updating the fosse as should the future owners wish to convert the outbuilding in the orchard this may change the specifications.
There is mains metered water, gas is bottled and the property is fully rewired to French regulations by a qualified electrician.
The main house and cottage share the same water and electricity supply.
