Tucked away in the quaint village of Saint-Denis-Sur-Sarthon, Orne, 61420, France is a charming five-bedroom house that's been meticulously preserved to retain its 19th-century majesty. Offering an expansive 280 square meters of living space, priced fairly at 350,000, this remarkable property offers not only a unique residential experience but also a slice of French history.

Lay your eyes upon this former manor house, surely among the village's most eye-catching residences, and take a minute to appreciate its grandeur. Located just 10 minutes from Alencon, the property provides the perfect balance between a peaceful rural setting and the convenience of a nearby prominent city.

This resplendent home, made distinctive by its tasteful bourgeois architecture, boasts comfort and spaciousness. Stunning features enrich its interior:

- An entrance graced with a spectacular granite staircase.
- A generous dining room and living room, each enhanced with a cosy fireplace.
- A fully-fitted kitchen, granting easy access to the exterior for sunny outdoor breakfasts or moonlit nightcaps.
- A convenient ground-floor bedroom straddling the line between rustic and modern, adjoined by a well-equipped bathroom.

The upper levels of the home are equally inviting; the first floor accommodates a second spacious living area with a warm fireplace – a perfect family gathering spot. Adjacent, two sizable bedrooms, one of which is appointed with an en-suite bathroom, guarantee relaxation. A roomy attic adds versatility, whether for storage or conversion into a hobby space.

The final two bedrooms reside on the second floor where the uniqueness of the architecture becomes evident: a large dormitory-style bedroom with charming exposed framework. Additional features include another bathroom and ample storage space brought by yet another convenient attic.

Avid wine lovers will appreciate the genuine wine cellar that ensconces the heart of this home, but the exterior is just as captivating. A generously sized garage with an attached workshop opens out to the courtyard, offering the perfect space for automotive or craft hobbies. The splendid wooded park at the back and the 15,500 square meter meadow complete the landscape – providing tranquil spaces to enjoy nature's tapestry in different seasons.

What's it like to live in the area? It was a landscape predominantly shaped by a turbulent past: wars, chaos, and reconstruction. However, Orne now stands as a picture of tranquillity, an area covered in rolling hills and placid meadows. It's a lively community that hosts some of France's best weekly markets, offering a vibrant array of local produce. Echoes of its past, from the era of war to the architectural transformations post World War II, are still visible, often side by side with recent modern edifices.

Experience four distinct French seasons in Orne. Tucked away in Lower Normandy, the area experiences mild winters where the rolling hills are occasionally dusted in snow, followed by the burst of colour in spring. Summers are comfortably warm, perfect for exploring outdoor markets or picnicking in the lovely parklands, while in autumn, the countryside is a mélange of warm hues.

In total, this house in Gandelain is an excellent opportunity for people with a keen eye for history, detail and the love for a leisurely pace of life. Its condition today combines the charm of the past with the comforts of the modern—ready to welcome owners who not only appreciate its story but also want to contribute to its continuing narrative. Wake up in a home that’s more than just a structure, but a storyteller of the past and an echo of the region's evolving rich heritage. This address is not just a place to stay, but a place to live and grow!
