Spacious character detached house with gîte in Normandy within walking distance of shops and other amenities.

The property has been renovated over the last 20 years and benefits from spacious, light accommodation.  The windows are double glazed with wood shutters.  The property was re-wired and re-decorated.  There is an attached gîte to finish renovating for extended family or to create additional income.  Viewing is recommended.

The property is situated on the outskirts of the town of Percy, within walking distance of all facilities. About ten minutes drive from Villedieu-les-Poêles the property is conveniently situated just off the main road from the ferries (A84) - 7 km - and it is less than 90 minutes from Cherbourg and an hour from Caen Ouistreham. Dieppe is about a 3 1/2 hour drive and Calais is about 4 1/2 hours drive.  The nearest airports are at Caen Carpiquet and Dinard.  The nearest beach is at Granville which is 25 minutes to the west and Mont St. Michel, Bayeux and Avranches are all within an hours drive.  The pretty market town of Percy  has a supermarket, many shops and numerous bars and restaurants and hosts a market on Saturdays selling fresh farm produce. The larger market town of Villedieu Les Poeles, approx. 8 minutes drive away, has an indoor swimming pool and a large weekly market selling everything from food to clothing.
