Pretty detached house with several outbuildings, over an acre garden, and no neighbours

The property is an old farmstead with a pretty split-level house with 3 bedrooms and several outbuildings which reflect the charm of a bygone era.  The barns offer potential for further development, subject to planning permission, or for someone wishing to work from home.   Viewing is highly recommended.

This property is in the Orne region of Normandy near the Calvados border and is surrounded by wooded hills and valleys that form part of the Normandie-Maine Regional National Park, an area of natural beauty that extends to some 257 000 hectares. The rugged Brittany/Normandy coastline is just over an hour’s drive away and there are several lakes with beaches within half an hour by car. Local facilities can be found in the village 1.5km away – here you will find an excellent bakery, butcher, a restaurant, a village pub and other amenities including a mini supermarket and hairdresser. Historical Domfront, with its medieval castle on top of a cliff, is only 6km away whilst Bagnoles-de-l’Orne, with its spa centre, casino, lake and sports centre, is also within easy reach (23 km).  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is 70 km from the property.  It is  64 km from Alençon, the department capital and 225 km from Paris.  The closest ferry port is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour 15 minutes) and the channel tunnel at Calais is about 4 1/2 hours by car.
