      Ref.3822 : French property for sale near the town of Argentan.
      The property is located in the heart of the Orne department on the outskirts of a small rural village adjacent to the beautiful Gouffern forest. Enjoying an unobstructed view of a park with trees that is hundreds of years old, this castle offers its guests a certain idea of peace and quiet in the countryside, fully preserved.
      The nearby town of Argentan offers all the services and shops and, thanks to its fast, quality road and rail access, is ideal for any second home acquisition project.

      The property is built on 4 levels and comprises a main building of good size, accessed via a beautiful stone stairway and topped by a bull's eye pediment.
      An addition probably dating from the 19th century was added to one of the wings on the west facade to form a space known as the "orangery".
      The central part of the east facade has been enlarged, thus creating new interior spaces and contributing to the development of a total living area of almost 900sqm.
      The perfect distribution of the rooms nevertheless makes this large residence perfectly liveable and manageable.

      On the garden level: 25sqm orangery, kitchen/scullery and storeroom, toilet/washbasin, pantry, 20sqm dining room with a "cabochon" floor, painted wood panelling and a marble fireplace, then a tiled entrance hall with a staircase, a large dining room with a "cabochon" floor and a fireplace, a small adjoining kitchen and technical rooms (boiler room, laundry room, storeroom, workshop, wine cellar).

      On the ground floor: large central entrance hall with parquet floor, small living room of 36sqm with parquet floor and marble fireplace, large living room of 41sqm with parquet floor and marble fireplace, study/library of 21sqm with parquet floor and fireplace, linen room, bedroom of 15sqm with marble bathroom + shower, landing with staircase.
      Private flat comprising 3 bedrooms, 1 with shower room, corridor, wc and bathroom.

      First floor: landing with parquet floor and staircase, 23sqm bedroom (fireplace) and children's bedroom, 17m² bedroom (fireplace) and small bedroom + shower and WC. Landing with corridor leading to 4 bedrooms from 11 to 16sqm, 2 of which with shower/washbasin and 1 with toilet.

      The outbuildings include
      1) A beautiful stone building of 36 X 7.5m under slate with a square return, including a magnificent "cathedral" barn of more than 100m², stables, henhouse, fodder storage.
      2)Caretaker's accommodation to renovate, of approx. 110m² on 2 levels, equipped with a water supply.
      3)Equipment shed.
      4)Storage shed and hutches.

      The park is laid out in the English style and is rich in numerous species, some of which are over a hundred years old (secoya, fresne, maple, holly, boxwood, etc.). It is a veritable curtain of greenery that defines the limits of the property while allowing certain perspectives. An orchard with pears, apples and cherries is a delight for hares and roe deer.
      The land is flat and therefore low maintenance, elegantly divided between wooded plots and lawns.
      There are no easements to disturb the space.
      The whole constitutes an entity of 5.42 acres (2ha 19a 71ca) of parkland to which is added an almost untouched grassland of 6.39 acres (2ha58a 85ca) which could ideally accommodate 1 or 2 horses or other herbivores.
      The park is the object of all the attention thanks to the presence of the "handyman" who we could not do without.
      The total surface area is approximately 14 acres ( 6 ha).
