Farmhouse with numerous outbuildings and no neighbours, Calvados, Normandy
Detached farmhouse set in over 6 acres of land for sale with outbuildings and no nearby neighbours in the Calvados department of Normandy. The property was completely renovated in 1988 and has been well maintained by the present owners.
The farmhouse benefits from light and airy accommodation with double glazed windows and central heating. It is set on just over 6 acres of land including an orchard and pond being sold with the property and there are no close neighbours. The property would be ideal for someone wishing to offer a storage facility, kennels or working from home because of the number and size of the outbuildings. These include an old stone bakery.
