This house has such quirky features and such great charm, but it is definitely a property one might consider 'a project' and there is some considerable work and imagination needed to realise the potential. However, if you are looking for a home you can make your own, this property would definitely be a great contender.
The house is in a lovely village, between the popular market towns of Domfront and Bagnoles De L’Orne. The beautiful Foret D’Andaines is very close by and is perfect for hiking, biking and horse-riding.

Local amenities can be found at La Ferrière-aux-Etangs (2.5 km) with medical centre, pharmacy, small supermarket, butchers, bank, bakery and 2 bar/restaurants. Other towns worth exploring in the area include La Ferté-Macé and Flers. The property is found in Orne in the Normandy region of France.
