PRICE REDUCED: The combination of MAJESTIC VIEWS while being sheltered in the lee of a hillside sets the theme of this AUTHENTIC 19thC THREE BEDROOM FARMHOUSE.

From the elegant hall and original staircase to the airy well-proportioned rooms, the overall effect is relaxed, not contrived. The wealth of authentic period detail (chandeliers, door-fittings, floor tiles etc.) provides subtle charm but never overwhelms this family home. At the top of the house is a large loft, already insulated, which offers the exciting prospect of a modern open-plan counterpoint to the traditional rooms below. A pretty cottage garden frames the house and beyond it a hectare of meadow with walnut and fruit trees with ample vantage points to enjoy views of what feels like all of Normandy!

The house is accompanied by a very spacious two bedroomed gite, and a large barn with open hangar which offers scope for parking, storage and workshop. The property is approached down its own private lane which traverses the meadow to the entrance of what was once a small farm complex of buildings.
