Huge stone property to renovate built around an open courtyard with 3/4 acre

This authentic property has been used for World War II re-enactments and much of it remains in its original condition.  One end of the property has been partially renovated to create a three bedroom house.  There are plenty of character features and the vast proportions of the property and its outbuildings offer enormous development potential (subject to planning).  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the Manche department (Normandy region) in the north of France 87 km from Caen, 56 km from Cherbourg and 437 km from the port at Calais.  The village is between La Haye du Puits (11 km) and Périers (9 km)  with a number of amenities including shops and restaurants along with a Saturday market.  It is a 30 minute drive to the larger town of Saint-Lô, with all its many shops and restaurants, and the train station where you can catch a train to Paris or Carentan (15 km). It is within 30 minutes of each coast of the peninsula with sandy beaches on the west and Saint Mère Eglise and the D-Day landing beaches on the East.  It is 12.5km from Carentan-les-Marais, 24km from Coutances.
