Starting off this Monday with a bang! This 29-bedroom mansion in L’Aigle, France has to be seen to be believed! It’s a nudge over the Escapist budget at $542,000, but with TWENTY-NINE bedrooms to spare, surely it could be converted into a profitable business of some sort! What a fabulous opportunity!
The building is laid out in a U-shape, with a courtyard in the middle. It appears to have been used as a school or religious facility for some time and will require quite a bit of elbow grease to get back into splendid order – but once restored, imagine the potential!
From the listing (translated from French):
Imposing mansion of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries of nearly 800 sqm on a plot of 2500 sqm in the heart of the historic center of a dynamic city of Orne located less than 2 hours from Paris. This particular hotel for part classified historical monument is without doubt one of the most beautiful of the city. It opens on a magnificent courtyard completely enclosed and accessible by a huge gate. Its U-shaped architecture offers a central building off the pediment and two buildings in return, each flanked by a square tower. The central part develops about 430 M² divided into 12 main rooms. The North wing of approximately 160 sqm is home to 7 main rooms and the South wing of approximately 185 sqm is home 9. A huge attic allows to consider an extension. The entire structure is in good condition, but major development work is to be expected. Rare and remarkable product.
