Detached country cottage in quiet rural hamlet

This house is in a quiet rural hamlet and has had a new electrical consumer unit.  It is double glazed except for the front door.  There are 2 staircases which provide versatile accommodation.  There is ample car parking space and pretty views over surrounding countryside.  It now requires some TLC to realise its full potential.  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.  Caen Ouistreham ferry port is about 100km away. Easy access to the Channel Islands via the port at Saint-Malo (85 km).
