Description: La Provostiere is a beautifully restored longere farm house with 8 acres, located on the edge of a friendly hamlet in the beautiful Normandy countryside, surrounded by open farmland but not isolated. The small town of Isigny le Buat is only 5 mins drive away and has many amenities including a Bank, Supermarkets, Restaurants, Tabac, Doctors, Vets and an excellent school etc…The location of La Provostiere provides you with a wealth of attractions all within easy reach. The local towns of St Hilaire and Avaranche with their weekly markets, famous historical landmarks such as Mont St Michel, the Grand Cascades, Petite Chapelle and Abby Blanche at Mortain and the D Day beaches to name a few, There are a wide range of leisure activities close by, excellent golf courses, fishing, horse riding and extensive dedicated rambling and cycle routes. Plus it is only 30 mins from Normandy’s beautiful coastline and endless sandy beaches. Dinard Airport is only 1 hr away and Caen Ferry 1 hr 15. The house has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard and retains many of its original features. It benefits from gas central heating with a new combi boiler, new electrics, septic tank, double glazing and is well insulated throughout. There are phone and TV points throughout the house and has a reliable broadband connection. GROUND FLOOR RECEPTION ROOM 1 (33 m2) this is a newly converted/renovated lounge that was originally the attached barn. It has beautiful large oak beams and has access to the outside via the front door. RECEPTION ROOM 2 (24.8 m2) this is part of the original living accommodation. It has old oak parquet flooring, fireplace, oak beams, and large French doors that lead out to the garden. KITCHEN (30 m2) this room benefits from newly fitted kitchen units and new tiling throughout. There is a large original fireplace with wood burner. This room leads onto a utility room and cloakroom with WC and basin. A beautiful handcrafted oak staircase leads up to a large landing with oak flooring. All the rooms upstairs have exposed original oak beams. MASTER BEDROOM (30.2 m2) this bedroom has stunning views over the meadow and river. It has high vaulted ceilings and original pine flooring. There is a large built in wardrobe. TV point. BEDROOMS 2 & 3 (22.7 m2 and 18 m2) these bedrooms were originally the hayloft and have been converted into 2 large double bedrooms. They both have vaulted ceiling, pine flooring and large velux windows. TV points. STUDY this is a large room with dormer window and oak flooring. BATHROOM a good sized family bathroom with velux window. There is a full size bath, separate multi jet shower unit, vanity sink unit and toilet. Oak flooring. OUTSIDE There are fully enclosed lawned gardens and orchards with a gravel courtyard area directly to the front of the house. There are many fruit trees comprising of apple, pear and cherry and a large vegetable garden. There is a fully functioning well currently used for watering the garden but could also be used to supply the house. There is also an attached garage which easily accommodates a family size car. There are 2 small oak framed colombage barns both with concrete flooring. These are currently being used for storage but would be ideal for ponies, goats, chickens etc… Approx 8 acres of well maintained meadowland/pasture surround the property and a salmon/trout river flows along the bottom boundary of the land. Set a distance from the main house and from each other are 2 further buildings both with current CU permission to convert into further living accommodation. The smaller of the 2 was formerly the shoemaker’s cottage and would be perfect to convert into a 1 bedroom gite. The large barn would make a beautiful character family sized home. The barn has additional CU permission for a separate entrance with all the main services close by. Or alternatively the concrete floored stables and attached field shelters with enclosed paddock would make it an ideal equestrian property. *Many more photos on request*
