Superb Farmhouse with 21 acres, barn and lake in Normandy
This attractive Farmhouse was renovated by the present owners in 2005 and benefits from double glazed tilt and turn windows with electric pvc roller shutters, a centralised mechanical ventilation system, oil fired central heating with underfloor heating on the ground floor and radiators on the first floor and versatile accommodation including a master bedroom suite on the first floor and three ground floor bedrooms. The house has no close neighbours and although is a convenient driving distance from nearby Mortain it is completely out in the country, and looks out over its own land and lake. The large barn would lend itself to a variety of uses, including the possibility of creating internal stabling for horses. Viewing is highly recommended.
The house is conveniently situated just outside the pretty town of Mortain with its Abbey, waterfalls, 11th century Chapel and panoramic view of Mont St. Michel (about 3.5 km). This delightful town also offers a selection of Bars and Restaurants to suit all tastes and a wide range of shops together with a large supermarket. The medieval town of Domfront, with is narrow streets and ruined castle, also offers the same facilities within a 20 minute drive. Also St. Hilaire du Harcouet is only 12kms with a big weekly market. The UNESCO heritage site at Mont St Michel is 46 km away. The Voie Verte which forms part of the Paris to Mont St Michel cycleway and provides links into a further network of routes throughout Manche, into Calvados and Bretagne is 1.5 km from the property.
