Superb 5 bedroom family house with gîte, stables and 3 acres

This superb property is in a quiet rural hamlet on the outskirts of a village.  It looks over its well maintained gardens and the lovely balcony makes the most of views over surrounding fields.  The house itself has been completely renovated to a high standard and retains many character features including exposed stone walls, beams and granite fireplaces.  The accommodation is versatile and would lend itself to use for a B&B if required.  The charming attached gîte offers a useful income or could be used as an annexe.  For equestrian enthusiasts there are 3 stables and a tack room/feed store area, hay barn and workshop.  There is direct access to bridleways from the property which leads to the Forest.  An early viewing is highly recommended.

The house is situated in Southern Normandy, half way between the lively medieval market town of Villedieu les Poêles, famous for its copper production and the historic town of Vire, renowned for its culinary delights.  The nearest airport is Dinard - 1 hour away.  The nearest ferry is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and the channel tunnel is at Calais which is about 4 hours away.  The nearest  village is within walking distance with a bar, bakery and small store for essentials and Saint Pois is slightly further away.

The closest town, being some 10 minute drive away, is Brécey.  Here you will find the local supermarket - Super U which also offers Petrol/Diesel facilities 24 hours a day. The town also has other shops, bars and restaurants including a pizzeria, bakeries & banks schools and doctors' surgery.  It is 50 km from mystical Mont St Michel and its bay and 40 km from Granville, with boats to the Channel islands. The house is also within easy reach of the D-day landing beaches.  The forest of Saint Sever is within a 10 minute drive.
