The house is a traditional French Farmhouse, believed to date back to the early 1700's with potential B&B rooms and attached gîte in over an acre of land with open views across the valley.

The Farmhouse is in a quiet position and is surrounded by its gardens which extend to just over 1 acre.  Beautiful views are to be enjoyed from the patio.  The property benefits from electric heating with a heat exchange unit which has been recently intalled, double glazing and beautifully presented accommodation.  The Farmhouse would lend itself to use as a small B&B by using the first floor bathroom, bedroom 2 and 3 as a family suite.  There is an attractive 2 bedroom gîte which has been recently renovated to provide accommodation for guests.  There are superb views over the surrounding countryside and a lovely garden which has a productive vegetable garden with raised beds and greenhouse.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the versatility of this property.

The property is situated on the Manche/Calvados border and is only 1 hour away from the ferry port at Caen Ouistreham and 3 hours from Paris. Calais is about 4 hours away. The D-Day landing beaches, Granville, Mont Saint Michel and the Brittany coast are all less than an hours drive away. The UNESCO heritage site of the Mont Saint Michel is about 40 minutes drive. The nearest main town is Villedieu-les-Poêles about 10 minutes drive away and Vire is approximately 15 minutes distant.  The property is also well placed to pick up the A84 motorway at Pont-Farcy or Villedieu-les-Poêles.
