Beautiful detached Country House with just under 10 acres of land and outbuildings with River frontage and no neighbours within 300m.  Plenty of authentic features including original stairs, exposed stone walls and beams.

The surroundings of this property offer a peaceful place to live, seemingly in the middle of nowhere!  However it is just a couple of  minutes drive to Vire-Normandie with all amenities and mainline train station to Paris.  There is room to extend the accommodation into the loft space, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission, or create a gîte or two in one of the outbuildings ....  Viewing is highly recommended.

This property is situated in the south of the department of Calvados, on the outskirts of the Town of Vire which has all amenities including schools, hospitals, restaurants, supermarkets, shops, indoor swimming pool, skate park, bowling, a gym and cinema.  There is an 18 hole golf course within a couple of minutes drive.  Stunning out-riding starts near the property and can be continued on to the Lake Dathée and further west to the Saint Sever forest. The property is a 5 minute drive from the town of Vire and about an hours drive south from the port of Ouistreham, Caen, the landing beaches and an hour inland from the breathtaking bay of the Mont St Michel to the west.
