Property: Three To View; Newly Built homes
Saturday 13 June 1998
WHY BUY a decrepit old barn in France when you could have a brand new house in Deauville in Normandy? Originally marketed for French buyers, the development at Le Domaine de Clairefontaine attracted so many British passers by, it was decided to sell them here as well. Nine hundred metres from the beach and town centre - and 200kms from Paris - the flats and houses are surrounded by wooded grounds and have a communal swimming pool and two tennis courts. There will be a resident caretaker. Prices start at pounds 47,000 for a one-bed flat, up to pounds 85,000 - pounds 120,000 for a four bedroom house.
