Substantial detached stone house with 5 bedrooms and nearly 1 acre garden

This detached house offers spacious, versatile accommodation with 2 ground floor bedrooms and bathroom.  There is a large utility room between the lounge and the garage, with a room above which could be made into a separate gîte, annexe or studio if required.  The roof and boiler have been replaced within the last 10 years by the previous owner.  The cladding on the end gable walls was done abouot 4 years ago.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near in a rural hamlet with easy access to the historic market towns of Mortain, Tinchebray and the major town of Flers. Mortain is a thriving market town where excellent shopping facilities, restaurants and bars are available. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour's drive away and the property  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 and the Mont St Michel.   An 18 hole golf course and the Saint-Sever forest are within 20 minutes drive.
