4 bedroom Village House for sale in Normandy in need of some modernisation.
The house was originally two cottages. Whilst it is habitable it would benefit from modernisation including an overhaul of the roof. The accommodation is spacious and versatile and could be changed back into a house and gîte or 2 dwellings.
The property is situated in a quiet village, whilst Vire and Villedieu-Les-Poeles are both pleasant historic towns approx 10-15 minutes drive away. Granville, with its excellent beaches, sailing marina and fishing port is only a 30-minute drive west from St Sever, with Mont St. Michel, Bayeux with its famous tapestry, Avranches, Coutances, St Lo and the D-Day landing sites in easy reach. The village of St Sever has a good variety of local shops including a pharmacy, dry-cleaners as well as all the essential food and delicacies for which the region is famous. Saint Sever is a farming/market town with a substantial range of local shops and facilities. The property is easily accessible with airports at Caen Carpiquet (1 hour), Rennes, Dinard and Deauville offering direct flights from the UK. The Channel Ports of Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and both Le Havre and Cherbourg (90 minutes)are easily accessible and it will take 4 hours to drive to the Channel tunnel at Calais. There is a mainline train station at Vire which is on the Paris/Granville line and connects with Paris in about 2 hours and 40 minutes.
