Farmhouse with numerous outbuildings, garden and paddock

The property offers spacious family accommodation with the possibility of further extending in to the attached outbuildings.  There are numerous outbuildings and garaging for several cars.  The garden is well presented and enclosed and on the other side of the lane there is a paddock of just under 1 acre with an open fronted field shelter. There is a bus stop outside the house for the School bus.  Viewing is recommended.

The property is situated in a peaceful position near the small town of Ger (with all everyday amenities) and with easy access to the historic market town of Mortain. Mortain is a thriving market town where excellent shopping facilities, restaurants and bars are available. It is situated in the Southwest of Normandy, near the border 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 and 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.
