This stunning detached house and gîte have been carefully and sympathetically restored to a very high standard.  Great home and income potential. 3 separate detached barns 2 of which are suitable for conversion.  Beautiful views.

The property benefits from double glazing throughout and oil fired central heating.  There are a wealth of original features including a granite fireplace, exposed stone walls and beams.  The property is surrounded by its own land which is suitable for horses.  Two of the 3 detached barns have previously had planning consent for conversion into additional houses and works on two of them have been started.  The situation is stunning and there is just one neighbour further along the lane.  Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  a few kilometers from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The major town of Vire is well served by shops, restaurants, supermarkets and a hospital and is about a 20 minute drive.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour's drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen which is served by regular Brittany Ferry crossings, particularly Portsmouth but also other UK south coast ports and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches and the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest. Within a 20 minute drive of the property is an exceptionally good restaurant Le Moulin de Jean.
