Message From The Seller

Situated at the end of a short lane, this home is peaceful and a haven for wildlife and only a 5 minute bike ride into the friendly local town. My family have enjoyed coming to visit at all times of the year – great for Christmas too! There is so much scope to expand into a fantastic home of your choice – whether you want workshop space or a larger family home. I hope to find something smaller in this area as I love it so much.

Farmhouse with outbuildings in quiet position in Normandy

This detached house stands on it own, surrounded by fields and its own garden, with no close neighbours.  It benefits from central heating and was rewired in 2004.  The roof on the rear elevation was replaced after the millenium storms.  There is the possibility of extending the accommodation into the adjoining barns if required, subject to planning.  The barn attached to the north elevation already has a connecting door but it is currently bricked in.  Viewing is recommended to appreciate the potential and charm of this property.

The property is situated in a quiet rural hamlet about 3 km from the small town of Barenton with a local supermarket, bakeries, pharmacy, hairdresser, post office, tabac and cafés. Further shopping can be found at Mortain and Domfront (10km) and St Hilaire du Harcouet (15 km). The ferry port of Caen Ouistreham  is about  1 hour 15 minutes away, served by Britanny Ferries from Portsmouth. St Malo with its ferry port is 1 1/2 hours away and Cherbourg is 2 hours. Calais and the Euro Tunnel are approximately a 5 hour drive.  Airports within 2 hrs are Rennes, Deauville (Ryanair from Stansted), Dinard (Ryanair flights from Bristol, Birmingham, London Stansted and East Midlands) and Cherbourg (Flybe from Southampton).
