Characterful detached stone house set in over an acre of garden with outbuildings in a quiet rural hamlet.

The photos do not do justice to this stunning Normandy longère.  There is loads of character with exposed stone walls, granite fireplaces and beams, not to mention the huge beams.  The accommodation has been sympathetically renovated to create a charming family home which stands in the middle of its plot of over 1 acre at the end of a quiet country lane with only 2 other properties.  There are super views from the front of the house.  There is potential to extend the living space into the large barn to the rear of the house and create a separate dwelling, subject to planning, in the large stone barn.  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 beaches on the west coast are an hour's drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, 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.
