Happy Bargain Friday! A historic townhouse in the medieval heart of a pretty French village!
I wonder what it would feel like to live within such old walls? This little home looks like it’s straight out of Shakespearean times! I wonder who lived here and what their lives were like, throughout the centuries?
From the listing on Leggett:
Believed to be the oldest house in Fresnay sur Sarthe, this unique property would make an unusual family home or a distinctive holiday home or B&B business. Situated in the heart of the Medieval centre, just a few steps from the Castle and views over the river valley, this timber-framed house is full of character and historic features.
It benefits from new wiring and a modern control box, with electric heating supplemented by a traditional fireplace in the kitchen. Each of the three bedrooms has its own access stair, and there is a reception room on both the ground and first floors, making the property ideal for B&B use. It is unusual for such a historic property to come onto the market, and early viewing is encouraged.
The town is a popular base for exploring the stunning Alpes Mancelles, an area full of outdoor recreational opportunities – canoeing, walking, riding, cycling and enjoying nature.
