Modernised farmhouse with just over 10 acres of land, concrete yard area, barns and pond

This house has been renovated since 2005 by the present owner, it had a new synthetic slate roof, kitchen, bathroom at the time and the loft was insulated in 2019.  It is in a small rural hamlet at the end of a no through road.  The land  is fenced for sheep.  In the lower field there is a stream providing drinking water for livestock.  The pond is spring fed and for private use only.  The concrete yard is excellent for animal keeping and the barns are functional for livestock.  The property lends itself to use as an animal sanctuary, for equine use or a smallholding.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is in Calvados in the Normandy region of France. Local facilities can be found at Saint Sever (6km) and the nearest major towns are Villedieu-les-Poêles (15km) and Vire with SNCF railway to Paris in about 2 hours 50 minutes.  The UNESCO site of  Mont St Michel is 36 km away, Coutances Cathedral (38 km), Bayeux Tapestry (Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux) (59 km), and the  D-Day Landing Beaches (64 km).
