Spacious detached house to renovate with 7 acres in Normandy

This huge property has had some renovation work carried out over the last 20 years but does need finishing.  It is in a hamlet, at the end of a lane.  It could easily be divided into house and gîte, if required, subject to planning. Overall there is approximately 285m2 of property – part of which is renovated.  There is further potential to renovate the attached barn (used as games room) and the attic. There is a river which runs through the land.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near Carantilly in the center of the Manche department in Normandy between the D-Day landing beaches and Mont St Michel in an area of natural beauty.  It is approximately 3 hours by road to Paris and 1 1/2 hours from the city of Rennes and the airport. The nearest train station is at Carantilly and buses can be found at Marigny on the Coutances – Saint Lô route.  The ferry ports are within easy driving distance – Caen (Ouistreham) is 1 hour and 15 minutes away and Cherbourg is 1 hour 20 minutes away.  The eurotunnel at Calais is 4 hours and 25 minutes.
