Substantial farmhouse with attached outbuildings to renovate in a quiet position on the outskirts of a small, vibrant town in Normandy.

This renovation project offers potential to create an enormous detached house or a house with attached gîtes.  It is being sold with approximately 1 1/2 acres of land but there is more land, a separate house and barn available to buy by separate negotiation.  It is situated in a dominant position and viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  in Sourdeval. The town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.
