We enjoy the fact that we are not overlooked and I can see my horses from the garden.

Detached Farmhouse with large outbuildings and 4 acres

This detached Farmhouse stands on its own with no close neighbours in a quiet rural area of Normandy.  It benefits from double glazed wood framed windows throughout.  There is plenty of potential to extend the living accommodation to the east gable of the property or create a gîte although the planning permission would have to be renewed.  A particular feature of the property is over 4 acres of fairly level land suitable for grazing horses, or creating a smallholding,  which surrounds the property.   Viewing is highly recommended.

The closest town is Le Teilleul (6 km) – it has 2 banks, 2 boulangeries, butcher, supermarket, restaurants and bars, and a good, although small, weekly market.  The property is situated in the Selune Valley on the boundary of the ‘Parc Naturel Regional Normandie Maine’, amidst rolling countryside in a small rural hamlet.   Nearest main facilities are to be found in the pretty town of Mortain with its Abbey, waterfalls, 11th century Chapel and panoramic view of Mont St. Michel (about 10 minutes drive).  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 Harcouët 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.  Located at the southern tip of Manche the property is served by the ports of Caen Ouistreham ( 1 hr 15 min.), Cherbourg (2 hr 15 min.), Le Havre (2 hrs) and Calais (5 hrs). The closest airports are at Rennes (apprx.1hr 15 min.) and Dinard (1 hr 15 min.).
