Centre of Alençon

This property features a main building that was likely an extension of the adjacent gable end part, which dates back to the 17th century and has a tower-like appearance. The main building is constructed of stone, primarily rendered, and is spread across three levels, covered with a roof featuring both slate and tiles. The main facade of the building is elegantly symmetrical, a characteristic of the 18th century, adorned with numerous openings. The entrance to the property is through a beautiful double-flight stone stairway, offering a glimpse of an integral cellar with a few steps.

The current living area of the property is approximately 230 sqm, and it is laid out as follows:

Ground Floor:

The main entrance features a staircase and a travertine floor.
To the right is a spacious living room with an alcove, oak flooring, plaster ceilings, and a marble fireplace.
To the left is a beautiful dining room with herringbone parquet flooring, plaster ceilings, wood paneling, and a stone fireplace.
In the gable return, there is a kitchen with timbered tiles, exposed joists, and stone walls. A spiral staircase leads to the next level.
A cloakroom with a WC and a hand washbasin.

On the tower side, there's a bedroom on the half landing with parquet flooring and an attached shower room with a WC.

The overall ceiling heights are quite good, ranging from 2.60 to 2.77 meters.
This property exudes historical charm and elegance, with its architectural features and carefully maintained interior spaces.

Electric gate

Sheltered from view behind a low wall topped with opaque railings, there is a small garden of about 150 sqm of lawn, naturally sheltered by a few plane trees and nicely decorated with flowers and perennials.
The south-facing kitchen provides ample opportunity for sunny meals.
The configuration of the garden and its reasonable dimensions escape the usual constraints of maintenance and are sufficient to ensure well-being and an enviable quality of life in a rural environment
