The property is an attractive, secluded but not isolated, equestrian/smallholding overlooking open countryside. It sits on 3.3 hectares (8.1acres) of flat grazing land. The fields are divided into several paddocks which are well fenced and have access to field shelters and water, either via well water or 1000L rainwater butts.

There is an area of pasture which the owners use to cut hay and therefore have no need to buy in, but there are several suppliers of hay close by should you wish to use this field for grazing. There is a designated area which has been used as a riding arena, but more recently for dog agility.

There are several outbuildings on the property: hay barn, field shelters, stone outbuilding currently used as an animal shelter but could be converted to a gite with the relevant planning permission, an uninhabited colombage ripe for conversion to a dwelling (it has a new slate roof) should you wish. The current owners have had plans drawn up for this. There is a large former dairy, which contains 5 block-built stables, large foaling box, tack room and workshop area. There is a large kennel attached to the stable building with a well-fenced, paved yard, which the current owners use for boarding to generate a small income.

The property is a modern 3 bedroom bungalow with kitchen/diner, shower room, separate toilet, living room and utility room. The garden to the front has been block paved and the rear garden is laid to lawn with shrubs. Next to the bungalow is a small orchard with fig, apple, cherry, plum and pear trees. The orchard also has chicken and duck houses for the free range poultry and a small pond.

The nearest village is Ceaucé, which is 3 km away and has doctors, medical centre, post office, church, bakers, butchers, newsagents, bars, schools, animal feed suppliers and small supermarket.

There is an outdoor market on Thursdays. The nearest town is Domfront, approx. 8kms with 2 supermarkets, solicitors, 2 vets (English-speaking) dentist, doctors, restaurants, bars, schools, market on a Friday, post office and many other shops. There is part of Domfront which is medieval and a tourist attraction. There are farriers locally, both French and English.

There are tourist attractions in nearby Ferte Mace, which has a large boating and pleasure area, Bagnoles de L'Orne with a casino and lakes, St. Fraimbault, which hosts a flower festival every year and many more.
