Fixer Upper Riverside Stone Cottage in Domfront, Orne, Lower Normandy France Under $50K ~ Sold

Domfront, Orne, Lower Normandy, France $49,061 ~ Sold


How about a riverside fixer upper stone cottage in lower Normandy in France? In my late teens, I had dreams of a house like this. In fact, I took seven years of French and after high school attended a school in England in hopes of becoming a bi-lingual secretary. Now I can barely read French, never mind speak it. I also now have no aspirations to live anywhere other than the US. But it is interesting to browse.

This pretty riverside fixer upper cottage is near a very popular medieval town. The property would benefit from further modernization and finishing.  It is situated at the end of a no through road in a small hamlet and would have been part of a mill complex in the past.  It would make an ideal holiday home.

The property is in a quiet residential position on the outskirts of the medieval market town of Domfront with shops, schools and all amenities.  Also nearby, is Lassay-les-Chateaux (13km), with its picturesque castle and lake and Bagnoles de l’Orne, about 22km away, is a spa resort set around a lake with a casino, many restaurants and shops. The nearest mainline train station is at Flers (30km) with the TGV at Laval (52km) and airport and ferry are at Caen Carpiquet (76km).  Rennes airport is also within easy reach (98km).
