This very pretty and somewhat idiosyncratic property provides a hint of a Swiss alpine hunting lodge, but it is set within the magnificent Pays D'Auge countryside. The house is located within 10 minutes of the famous town of Livarot, renowned for its eponymous cheese, and is on a small, quiet country lane with rural views to front and rear. The environment is quiet and peaceful, within a small hamlet, not isolated and handily located for the Normandy coast and many of the famous and popular tourist attractions of northern France.

The house is built over three levels with an unusual first floor balcony. The living area is at ground floor level with a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor - with that balcony. There is a second bedroom and mezzanine room on the second floor. The property is bijou; with rooms that are well proportioned and full of charm. It is an ideal holiday bolt-hole, but could also make an easy to run permanent home, with a manageable garden, decked terrace and ready access to the wider Pays D'Auge and fashionable Normandy coast. In summary it is a unique, quirky property that you would always look forward to visiting with a smile.


ABOUT THE AREA
