Deceptively spacious detached house with swimming pool and garden

This lovely family home has been considably extended on the ground floor and benefits from recent pvc windows and doors, a new kitchen, and a new sand filter for the swimming pool.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a quiet rural position between Brécey (6 km) - with shops, schools, dentist and doctors' surgery and the larger town of Villedieu-les-Poêles (14 km).  It is within an easy drive (50 minutes) of the beach and the Normandy landing beaches. The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel, a must see for anyone visiting Normandy, is just a short distance along the coast (about 45 minutes). Within a short drive is the 18 hole golf course and Lake Dathée near Vire (19 km), and the forest of Saint Sever.  Dinard Airport is about 100 km, as is Caen Ouistreham ferry port. Easy access to the Channel Islands via the port at Saint-Malo (85 km).
