Superb 9 Bedroom Country House in FranceLe Tertre occupies an elevated position in outstanding countryside between Mortagne-au-Perche and the charming market town of Mamers in the Perche National Park. The property was sensitively developed 21 years ago in keeping with the 19C farmstead, and is in very good condition. The farmhouse, barn and dairy were linked by a 1 storey building, a covered glass winter garden, a 2 storey building and a rectangular tower. The whole was enclosed by a wall and an archway was sculpted out of the dairy to form an entrance. The property stands in 3.5 hectares, comprising of and orchard of apples, pears and walnut. Mown pathways meander through meadows which are in full flower in spring, leading to a seasonal pond and ancient oak. A clearing at the top looks out on sweeping countryside.The property has real potential as a business opportunity. Function rooms and guest accommodation were a vision for the property to be run as a country retreat for well-being and self-development courses, a B&B and as a wonderful venue for self-catered weddings.it has also been a much loved family home.interior Facilities:9 Bedrooms8 Possible Reception RoomsFunction RoomsExterior Facilities:Mown Pathways3,5 hectares of apple, pear and walnut orchardsFarmhouseBarnOutbuildingsAbout the Area:Orne is one of the original 83 departments created during the French Revolution, on 4 March 1790. it was created from parts of the former provinces of Normandy and Perche. Birth place of Charlotte Corday, Girondist and assassin of Jean-Paul Marat.Orne is in the region of Normandy neighbouring Eure, Eure-et-Loir, Sarthe, Manche, Mayenne, and Calvados. it is the only department of Normandy to be landlocked.The largest town by a considerable margin is the prefecture, Alencon which is an administrative and commercial centre for what is still an overwhelmingly rural department. There are no large industrial centres: agriculture remains the economic focus of Orne.The inhabitants of the department are called Ornais.The recorded population level peaked at 443,688 in 1836. Declining farm incomes and the lure of better prospects in the overseas empire led to a sustained reduction in population levels in many rural departments, and by the time of the 1936 census the recorded population stood at just 269,331. Once motor car ownership started to surge in the 1960s employment opportunities became less restricted and by 2008 the population level had recovered a little to 292,282.The two major cities in the Orne are Alencon, the prefecture, and Flers.Contact Euroresales Ltd for more information.
