Just 20 minutes from the cathedral city of Bayeux, yet set in the countryside with no immediate neighbours this fabulous character home dates back to circa 1748 and is currently used as a stud farm. Offering 280m² of living area, and sitting in almost 5 hectares of mature gardens and fields, this imposing stone built property enjoys far reaching views, and can be enjoyed as a comfortable family home with equine facilities, or could be ideal for tourist accommodation (B&B...). The home itself offers lots of original features and spacious accommodation which includes entrance foyer, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, cloakroom, drawing room with log burning fireplace, dining room, 2 separate kitchens, boot room and cellar. The main winter kitchen which has an electric fired Aga oven range is located on the site of the original farmhouse dairy, however there is also a small well-placed summer kitchen, very useful when entertaining. On the first floor and reached by a beautiful original stone staircase are the master bedroom and two secondary bedrooms. There are two en-suite bathrooms on this floor and all the rooms have glorious open views over the surrounding farmland. Moving to the second floor (the original granary), there is a large apartment boasting two additional bedrooms (easily sleeping 5) and a modern family bathroom. There are original tiled floors in the drawing room and entrance foyer and wood floors in the dining room, bedrooms and two of the bathrooms. The master bathroom has a tiled floor, as do both kitchens.
The landscaped gardens and grounds have several old apple and walnut trees. There is a fish pond and a smaller ornamental pond and fountain. There are two small paddocks and to the rear lay two large sheltered fields. In the fenced stable yard are three stables with a storage area and a 20ft by 14 ft foaling box. The stables are well ventilated but give good shelter from the elements during winter. The large 2 storey stone barn, formerly the stables and coach house, is now used as work room, wood store, garage and tractor shed. There is also a potential studio flat with its own rear entrance and small garden. Water and electric is laid on at the Gatehouse which has a separate entrance and driveway. The walls and roof are sound and plans are available for a 3 or 4 bedroom house with kitchen/diner, sitting room, bathroom and cloakroom. One small room,currently used as an office, has already been finished and wired for internet, electricity, telephone and heating. This building would have great potential for gites.
Historic towns, charming fishing ports, local street markets, sheltered bays and sandy beaches are just a few of Normandy's star attractions, not to mention the famed Mont Saint Michel. The famous D-Day landing beaches nearby offer a seaside experience with a difference. Served by a regional airport at Carpiquet (Caen) and within easy reach of the British Isles, there are many direct ferries from Normandy to England. In Bayeux, famous for it's tapestry, regular trains go to Paris and Caen .
