Attractive country house with large barn, pretty gardens and super views

This detached country house has been renovated to provide open plan living accommodation on the ground floor and a bedroom with en-suite bathroom on the first floor.  There was previously planning permission to convert the attached barn into additional living accommodation or a gîte.  There are lovely views from the terrace and garden over surrounding countryside.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the potential of the property.

The closest town is Le Teilleul (6 km) – it has 2 banks, 2 boulangeries, butcher, supermarket, restaurants and bars, and a good, although small, weekly market. The property is situated in the Selune Valley on the boundary of the ‘Parc Naturel Regional Normandie Maine’, amidst rolling countryside in a small rural hamlet, with one other property at the end of a “no through road”.   Nearest main facilities are to be found in the pretty town of Mortain with its Abbey, waterfalls, 11th century Chapel and panoramic view of Mont St. Michel (about 10 minutes drive).
