Detached Normandy Farmhouse to modernise with over an acre and barns in a quiet rural hamlet.

The property benefits from double glazed windows and the roof at the front was replaced 2 years ago.  At present the accommodation is only on the ground floor but the loft would make an ideal conversion, subject to planning.  It is habitable in its present condition but would benefit from further improvements.  There are several barns and an old bakery.  Viewing is recommended.

The village is located in the north west of France in the department of Manche of the French region Basse-Normandie. The closest airport is Rennes Airport (78 km), slightly further afield are Dinard Airport (79 km), Deauville Airport (121 km), or Angers Airport (124 km).  Close to the property tourist attractions include Mont St Michel (38 km), Coutances Cathedral (61 km), The Parliament of Brittany (Parlement de Bretagne) (72 km). The nearest large town is Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët (50) at 6.39 km which offers a wide range of shops, schools, doctors’ surgeries etc. and a busy market.
