Farmhouse with cottage, gîte and outbuildings in 2.7 acres of immaculate gardens

The property is believed to have been built in 1820 and now comprises a substantial rural country Farmhouse with an adjoining 3 bedroom cottage and separate 2 bedroom gîte.  In addition there is a beautifully maintained garden extending to approximately 2.7 acres with numerous substantial outbuildings.  It offers a good degree of comfort and is ready to move into and start running the business which has been successfully run for the last 9 years by the present owners from April until the end of September. The property is approached from a quiet lane via double gates which leads to multiple parking spaces and garaging.  There is a separate 5 bar gate leading into the paddock (approx. 1.5 acres).  The long barn previously had plans drawn up to create a 2/3 bedroom dwelling, and the large barn had outline permission and plans drawn up for a 5 bedroom dwelling.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the Lower Normandy countryside in the Calvados region about an hour’s drive from the ferry ports at Caen-Ouistreham and Cherbourg-Octeville.  The nearest airport is at Caen Carpiquet which is about 45 minutes away.  The nearest of the D-Day Landing Beaches is less than 30 minutes away, Bayeux is 20 minutes and the UNESCO heritage site ot Mont Saint Michel is about and hour and twenty minutes’ drive.  Nearest amenities for local supermarkets, hairdresser and the local train station with a direct line to Paris is a 10 minute drive.
