House to modernise in Normandy with stone barns and nearly 7 acres. Views over surrounding countryside.
The property comprises a detached house which requires modernisation. The land is gently sloping and could be used for ponies or a smallholding. A new fuseboard was installed about 10 years ago and exterior insulation has been added. There is room to extend the accommodation into the loft space and create one or two gîtes in the outbuildings. It is in a quiet rural hamlet with far reaching views to the east. Viewing is recommended.
It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, about 5 kilometers from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, 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.
