€50k for this rather stunning Stone Character Cottage for Sale in France, set in Bagnoles de l’Orne, Normandy.
This charmer is 3 hours drive to Paris & 1.5 hours to the Normandy beaches & Mont St. Michel. This lovely village is set on a gorgeous active town lake, very popular with locals & families for its thermals & spas.
But this little house…. oh my goodness, it’s just lovely. Sure, it’s a bit rough & needs updating, but it’s got the original mill/press in the attached, covered wood-beamed outbuilding. It appears there are further outbuildings as well & the house has 2 bedrooms & 1 bath, with potential to expand. The interiors are nice with beamed ceilings, a huge fireplace & tiled floors throughout. It’s been roughly attended to, so there’s no shame in restoring this little treasure with sympathy & grace to its original state. Currently it’s providing with about 100m² of interior living space on 2 levels & another 1650m² of gardens & greenspace. The outbuildings house a cider press over 2 levels with gorgeous rustic stone & timber features; we’re thinking this could be a cool aspect for renovation & it’s well worth a serious look at.
It definitely needs tidying up & looking after, as well as updating & a ‘re-looking’ at the layout & walls, but with a bit of work, your personal touches & imagination, this could be a lovely, worthwhile investment in an active, lively area. It’s perfect to create your holiday home in France, your retirement home in France, as a vacation rental or your ‘gites in France’ project, as it has plenty of room for expansion. The proximity of this lovely house to the local activities & commerce & to the regional historic monuments & attractions such as the Normandy Beaches & the Bayeaux Tapestry is excellent. It’s worth a look!
