Character Farmhouse with huge barn and nearly 2 acres

The farmhouse has been completely renovated but retains many character features including exposed stone walls and beams, a granite fireplace and feature granite warming bowls in the window sill.  There is a stone floor in the kitchen/dining room which is well equipped with units and appliances.  Upstairs in the main house there are two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.  A studio over the garage offers a third en-suite bedroom and could easily be used as a self-contained gîte or annexe.  A particular feature of the property is the garden which extends to just under 2 acres with a huge barn which could be converted into another house or gîtes, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near a quiet village, whilst Vire and Villedieu-Les-Poeles are both pleasant historic towns approx 10-15 minutes drive away.  Granville, with its excellent beaches, sailing marina and fishing port is only a 30-minute drive west from St Sever, with Mont St. Michel, Bayeux with its famous tapestry, Avranches, Coutances, St Lo and the D-Day landing sites in easy reach.  The village of St Sever has a good variety of local shops including a pharmacy, dry-cleaners as well as all the essential food and delicacies for which the region is famous. Saint Sever is a farming/market town with a substantial range of local shops and facilities.  The property is easily accessible with airports  at  Caen Carpiquet (1 hour), Rennes, Dinard and Deauville offering direct flights from the UK.  The Channel Ports of Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and both Le Havre and Cherbourg (90 minutes)are easily accessible  and it will take 4 hours to drive to the Channel tunnel at Calais.  There is a mainline train station at Vire which is on the Paris/Granville line and connects with Paris in about 2 hours and 40 minutes.
