Maison de Maître with 4 bedrooms and 2 acres with outbuildings

This family home stands in a quiet position on the edge of a hamlet. The second floor bedroom could easily be divided to create an additional bedroom if required.  The house is now offered for sale for the first time in nearly 20 years.  The present owners had the roof replaced about 10 years ago and have had insulation installed.  The house is light and airy with high ceilings, full central heating and super views to the front.  Viewing is recommended.

Every day facilities can be found at St Pois, which is 5 minutes by car, and has a post office, boulangerie, butcher (who does a take-away dish on Thursdays), mini-market, doctors surgery, pharmacy, hairdresser, a small restaurant and a bar-tabac.  The larger town of Brécey (10 minutes) has a supermarket and a good selection of other shops. It also has a leisure area which includes an open air swimming pool, a paddling pool and tennis court.  Further facilities can be found at  Mortain and the market town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët (both within a 15 minute drive).  The property is situated in the north of France,  46 km from Saint-Lô, the department capital and 252km from Paris.  It is within easy driving distance of the port at Saint Malo or Caen Ouistreham. The D-day landing beaches are an hours drive away.  The channel tunnel at Calais is 327 km.  Direct trains to Paris can be located at Villedieu-les-Poêles 19km or Vire 21km. The UNESCO heritage site of the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel is about 33km.  The coast at Granville is 41km distant.
