This pretty country cottage is very comfortable and has lots of potential and the layout offers great versatility depending on the requirements of the new owner. With nearly 1.5 acre gardens (that are not over-looked) and lots of outbuildings, it’s ideal for growing fruit & veg and perhaps a few chickens. 

Situated in a quiet hamlet, but the side of a quiet country lane, it’s a peaceful spot to enjoy a slower pace of life.  There is possibly the potential to create a separate gite or create additional bedrooms in the attic  at some point (subject to planning).  The main roof was renovated in 2019, at the same time a new boiler was installed to provide oil-fired central heating.  The front windows are double glazed, rear windows are single-pane.  The septic tank was installed in 2015.  

The accommodation is currently arranged all at ground floor level and the layout is flexible.  There is a particularly interesting opportunity to the left of the house where, subject to planning, additional bedroom space could be added in the attic to create an independent gite. 

With 120m2 habitable space, here’s the current layout:

Entrance hall at rear of the property

To the right:

2 bedrooms 
Separate WC

Straight ahead:

Fully fitted kitchen with views over the countryside

To the left:

Spacious sitting room with exposed beams and fireplace
A spare room with independent entrance
Shower room 

Stairs from the entrance hall lead down to the basement which houses the oil boiler and wine cellar.


There is a garage, adjacent workshop and a store room.  The garage and workshop both have electricity connection

The 1.45 acre plot is ideal for growing fruit and veg.  There are several sheds for gardening equipment and there is also a small pond.


The cottage is situated by a very quiet road in a small hamlet, equidistant between Céaucé and Ambrières-les-Vallées, both approx a 5km cycle or drive.  Céaucé has a bakery, pharmacy, butchers and restaurant.  Ambrières has a wide range of amenities.  Caen ferry port is approx a 90min drive.
