Normandy farmhouse with 2 cottages, stabling, barn and workshop standing in just over 2 acres with open views over surrounding countryside.
The property stands in a quiet position with no near neighbours.  The current owners have carried out a complete programme of renovation works to the house and converted 2 outbuildings into 2 cottages for family and friends.   The house and cottages benefit from wooden double glazed windows, rewiring, new bathrooms and heating.  They are well presented, with plenty of character and viewing is highly recommended.
It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  a few 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.
