Beautiful house in Upper Normandy - Owned/Selling by an American family

We are selling the family's beloved house in Normandy because we live full-time in the USA. We simply don't go out to France much anymore from California--it's a long flight for us :-)

Other nice-to-know tidbits:
This is a well-cared-for property that was built and maintained with a lot of love. Walking around the property, you will notice clever little touches throughout that will convey how special this property is and how much our family loved this place. It really is a special and oddball techie house that finds itself in the middle of the charming French countryside.

Extras and negotiable items:
With the purchase, you also get a Husqvarna riding mower (3300 EUR value) to help you comfortably tend to the lawn. It typically takes me about 1-2 hours to complete all the landscaping work myself on this half-acre property, but you can also hire locals for a reasonable fee (~10 EUR/hour).

If a car is needed, it is possible to negotiate a good price for you on our 2013 Renault Grand Scenic (7-seater) with low miles (~30000 Km). The vehicle is in fantastic condition and can be negotiated into an excellent offer on the property.

The offer price is at $159 000 EUR. No agent fees necessary. Notaire fees may apply.

Please feel free to contact me to learn more. My preferred method of communication is via e-mail. A phone number can be provided when the buyer is serious and well-qualified. I can arrange a walk-through of the property through my network of France-based friends and caretakers, and I can fly out from the USA to complete the paperwork and to help you get set up in Normandy.

Thank you and regards,
