Stone house with gite, outbuildings and 6 acres in Normandy, Calvados, Normandy
Detached stone house with a gîte, outbuildings and superb views over the surrounding countryside set in 6.5 acres of land for sale in lower Normandy. The property comprises a spacious main house with 3/4 bedrooms built of stone with a slate roof and an attached 3 bedroom gîte with separate entrance and services. They are separated currently by a wall and between the two properties is a barn/storage room which gives access to an enormous loft area over the house.
