Spacious detached Farmhouse in quiet position with over an acre of garden and large barn

The property benefits from double glazed windows and a new roof (replaced in 2013). The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors with a games room/fourth bedroom on the second floor.  There is further potential to extend into the loft space above the kitchen and dining room extension.  Viewing is recommended to appreciate this property.

The house is tucked away in a quiet position on the outskirts of a village with local shop, café and bar.  It is equidistant at 7km from Mortain and St Hilaire-du-Harcouët.  The sandy beaches on the west coast of Normandy and the scenic coastal footpaths around the Baie du Mont St Michel are all under an hour’s drive away. The coastal towns and beaches of Northern Brittany are also within easy reach and well worth a day trip. The Golf course near Vire is about 30 minutes drive. The house is about 1 hour 30 minutes drive from Caen and around 2 hours from both Cherbourg and Le Havre, around 3 hours from Dieppe and around 5 hours from Calais.  One of the largest regional markets in Normandy is held in St Hilaire each Wednesday morning.
