Detached house forming courtyard with outbuildings and over 8 acres

This property and its outbuildings had a new roof after the Millenium storms.  The house would benefit from some modernisation but offers spacious accommodation.  The buildings that come with it are arranged in an ‘L’ shape and join the back of the house.  The land is level and would make good grazing for horses.   The road in front of the property was formerly a main road but since the A84 was built the small town has been bypassed.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property can be found close to the small town of  Saint Martin de Besaces which is within walking distance.  There are excellent motorway links nearby.  It  is an ideal base for walking, cycling or touring the surrounding area. Just 10km away is the 17th century castle in the Town of Torigny-sur-Vire, and Bayeux with its famous tapestry, cathedral and restaurants is only 20km away. The Landing Beach at Arromanches is about 35km and Caen with its ferry port and airport is about a 30 minute drive.
