Farmhouse to finish renovating with nearly 4 acres and outbuildings

The property has an old country Farmhouse feel about it and it has been partially renovated by the present owners to offer light and spacious accommodation on the ground floor and two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor – there is further potential to extend into the adjoining outbuildings, subject to planning permission, if required.   The majority of the land is to the front of the property and is arranged as paddocks.  Viewing is 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 (3k).  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. 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 20 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.
