2 Detached habitable stone houses on rural plot of approx. 4 Hectares with two lakes
2 detached habitable stone houses, one to live in and one which could be used as a gite, set on a rural plot of approx. 4 hectares with two lakes, close to the town of Mortain.
Entering the property from the cul de sac lane which passes via its own gated entrance onto a hard surfaced parking area.
The main house is south facing and has approx. 116m2 of habitable space is off to the left along a short path through a well maintained garden.
Entering the house into the kitchen of approx. 12m2 which opens up into the dining room of approx. 24m2 with a fire place and wood burning stove and stairs to the 1st floor landing. A door to the right of the dining room leads through to the lounge of approx. 15m2 with a fireplace and wood burning stove and another room to the rear of the lounge (possibly a bedroom) of approx. 10m2.
Stairs lead up to the 1st floor landing with doors off to two bedrooms of approx. 30m2 and 20m2 and a bathroom/w.c. of approx. 6m2.
This house is surrounded by neat well maintained gardens which includes vegetable beds and a seating area with a fire pit for those cosy outdoor evenings with family and friends and good views.
There is a septic tank for its drainage.
The second house/gite (a beautiful converted barn of approx. 122m2 habitable space) is set off to the right of the parking area and is surrounded by garden/land with good views.
Entering the house into the hallway with large built in storage cupboard and a w.c, a door leads through to the fitted kitchen/dining room of approx. 18m2 which includes an electric hob and oven, washing machine, fridge/freezer and stairs to the 1st floor. A further door opens to reveal a large lounge of approx. 35m2 which has triple aspect double glazed windows making for a very light and airy living space.
Stairs lead up to the 1st floor landing with doors off to two bedrooms, one of approx. 24m2 with an ensuite bathroom/w.c. of approx. 8m2 and the other of approx. 20m2 with an ensuite shower room/w.c.of approx. 6m2.
This barn conversion took place in 2005 when it benefited from insulation, new electrics and plumbing, double glazing, oil fired central heating and it has a separate septic tank from the main house for its drainage.
Outside the land stretches further along the lane to the left past the main house providing another entrance/parking area and the possibility to create a further flower garden and/or a larger vegetable beds; plus if you wanted to create two separate properties i.e. whilst renting out the 2nd house/gite to holiday makers or indeed on a full time basis, it would be easily achieved.
Otherwise, there is plenty more land to the front and right hand side of both properties which could be used for grazing horses/animals.
On the opposite side of the lane is where you will find the rest of the land and the 2 lakes which measure approx. 500m2 each.
There is an entrance onto the land from the cul de sac lane where initially you arrive onto a large part of mainly flat land which is used as a parking area for anyone wanting to stay for a while and fish from the two lakes.
From here you can cross the stream on foot and find the first lake in front of you which is filled by a source which then naturally flows into the second lake only a short stroll to the right of the first.
The land which surrounds both lakes has lots of trees and shrubs providing not only shade but a lots of wild life to enjoy whilst you're relaxing and/or fishing.
Therefore this whole property would lend itself to having at least two businesses, one letting out the 2nd property either full or part time and the rest of the time to holiday makers and the second business could be providing the lakes, space and amenities for people who like to go carp fishing or whatever you have stocked the lakes with!
The owners have advised us that they have already applied for and have been granted permission to build a 15m long and 12m wide wooden reception building which incorporates a 6m building and a 6m decking area. Their plans show that they have positioned this building to overlook the lakes. (We would advise that for any permissions given to any owners for plans already submitted, it is always a good idea to check with the Mayors office to understand what is required to be able to transfer the permission to the new owners following purchase; should you wish to continue with the project)
Within walking distance or a short drive to the town of Mortain with its walks/cascades, open air swimming pool and surrounding countryside to enjoy and only approx. 15mins by car to the lovely market town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouet with its popular weekly market, park and lake, local and larger shops etc. Approx. 40mins drive to the start of the coast at Avranches, approx. 1h15 drive from the ferry ports of Caen and approx. 1hr30 from Saint Malo and to the airports of Dinard and Rennes.
