Farmhouse to modernise with 8.75 acres and outbuildings
The property is situated in a quiet rural hamlet and requires modernisation. It has potential to extend into the attached barn or into the loft space, subject to planning permission. The land is to the front and sides of the house and is fairly level with useful barns which would lend themselves to equestrian use. Viewing is highly recommended.
The property is situated in a peaceful position near the Mortainais forest within easy access of both the historic market town of Mortain and the small town of Ger and Beauchêne. Barenton and Ger are about 4 km from the property and the busy town of Flers is a 20 minute drive. Mortain is a thriving market town where excellent shopping facilities, restaurants and bars are available. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados. The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and the property is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. The D-Day landing beaches and the Mont St Michel are about an hour’s drive away. The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 20 minutes drive, as is the Saint Sever forest.
