Character detached country house, converted from a barn, with over an acre in Normandy

The property is believed to date back to about 1700 and is currently used as a holiday let generating an income of up to 695€ per week in peak season.  It is in a quiet rural hamlet and the majority of the garden is to the front of the house, laid to lawn with fruit trees.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the south west of Normandy near the borders of the Manche and Calvados.  It is tucked away in a peaceful position within easy access of the historic town of Lonlay l’Abbaye (4k).  Nearby Domfront with its medieval centre and Mortain with its petite and grande cascades are thriving market towns where excellent shopping facilities, restaurants and bars are available.  There is golf at the Spa town of Bagnoles de l’Orne which is a 20 minute drive and a boating lake and large crazy golf course at Larchamp which is a 5 – 10 minute drive. 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.
