A superb property located in the Parc Naturel Regional Normandie Maine that would suit both a commercial tourist and or equestrian venture with the main stone farmhouse house extending to 4 large bedrooms and a further separate stone building providing 3 separate letting units with scope to extend (subject to planning). The extensive paddocks and land with the property extend to over 11 hectares with direct access to the forest that forms park of the regional national park and has many major walking routes (including the Santiago de Compostela). The current owner has previously run a commercial horse breeding business from the property.
Whilst located in the beautiful park land with wonderful open views, the property is not isolated. The local shops can be found at just 8kms away in Carrouges and the larger towns of Argentan and Alencon are both only 20kms.
