This detached, family house is in an enviable rural spot with 360º views over farmland. The new owner would need to modernise but it would be an exciting project for someone with practical or creative skills. A perfect place for home working and easy to reach from UK Channel ports.
Situated near a small village in NW France, at the end of a lane, and surrounded by farmland, this stone farmhouse offers perfect peace and tranquility. 3kms away is Juvigny-le-Têrtre which has shops, schools, banks etc. For a wider shopping choice then we would suggest a drive to either Mortain (14kms) or St Hiliare-du-Harcouët (16kms).
Mortain is a beautiful market town set in a Regional Natural Park. It is noted for its stunning gorges and waterfalls. The Friday market is a great place to find local specialities. If you are a fan of eating out then you will find a good selection of restaurants. There is a heated outdoor swimming pool, good fishing, golf and plenty of country walks. The coast at Granville is within easy reach and day trips to Mont St Michel, Bayeux and Villedieu-les-Poêles are all well worth while.
The house is something of a blank canvas. It does have a functional kitchen, bathroom and WC but little in the way of comforts. There is a significant solid barn in the grounds which could be used for stabling or an office.
The region is served by a number of cross-Channel ports, with ferries to St Malo, Cherbourg, Caen and Le Havre. They are all within easy reach.
