It is a cosy house in winter, reading books or watching TV in the sitting room.  And there is a nice garden area in front of sliding doors for entertaining in  the summer.

This family home stands in a quiet position with a farm set some distance away behind mature hedges and trees and no other neighbours.  The gardens are mature and verdant with flower and shrub beds and borders.  There is potential to extend the accommodation into the adjoining cave/utility room and garage if required (subject to planning).  There is a separate workshop and shed.  Viewing is recommended.

Every day facilities can be found at St Pois, which is 2 minutes by car, and has a post office, boulangerie, butcher (who does a take-away dish on Thursdays), mini-market, doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, hairdresser, a small restaurant and a bar-tabac.  The larger town of Brécey (10 minutes) has a supermarket and a good selection of other shops. It also has a leisure area which includes an open air swimming pool, a paddling pool and tennis court.  Further facilities can be found at  Mortain and the market town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët (both within a 15 minute drive).  The property is situated in the north of France,  46 km from Saint-Lô, the department capital and 252km from Paris.  It is within easy driving distance of the port at Saint Malo or Caen Ouistreham. The D-day landing beaches are an hour’s drive away.  The channel tunnel at Calais is 327 km.  Direct trains to Paris can be located at Villedieu-les-Poêles 19km or Vire 21km.
