Detached stone cottage for sale in Normandy with over 10 acres of pasture and coppice. This property with land for sale in France offers good value for money and is in a lovely location.
The barn and wood shed roofs have been replaced within the last 20 years. On the first floor the mezzanine bedroom has been plasterboarded and provision has been made for an en-suite bathroom – this room requires finishing. The property benefits from lovely views over its own land and surrounding forest and farm land. It would now benefit from some TLC. Viewing is highly recommended.
The property is situated in a peaceful position with no close neighbours within easy access of both the historic market town of Mortain and the small town of Ger and Beauchêne. Mortain is a thriving market town where excellent shopping facilities, restaurants and bars are available. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados. The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and the property is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, the Mont St Michel. The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 30 minutes drive, as is the Saint Sever forest.
