Message From The Seller

“What I like about this house is that it has a really happy and tranquil ‘feel’. And my kitchen’s an absolute joy for those who like to cook.  No bad vibes in this house, no traffic noise and apart from the odd tractor, the most noise comes from birdsong!  Yet it’s just a few minutes from shops, banks and all the ‘stuff’ we need in the 21st Century.”

Property Video Tour

Beautiful detached house with studio and large garden in Normandy for sale.  A real “Homes and Gardens” style house which must be viewed to be appreciated.

The property has been considerably improved by the current owner which includes new double glazed windows with shutters on the ground floor, rewiring, new bathrooms on the first floor, custom made wardrobes to the master bedroom and a superb fitted Mobalpa kitchen.   The house would be ideal for someone wishing to work from home in a studio or offices or to finish converting the Triplex into a gîte.  The rooms are spacious and there is a delightful blend of character features and modern fittings.  The old bakery also offers possibilities for renovation into additional accommodation, subject to planning.

The property is situated between the towns of Percy-en-Normandie and Hambye. It is just over  ten minutes drive from Villedieu-les-Poêles and is conveniently situated just off the main road from the ferries (A84) – 7 km – and it is less than 90 minutes from Cherbourg and an hour from Caen Ouistreham. Dieppe is about a 3 1/2 hour drive and Calais is about 4 1/2 hours drive. The nearest beach is at Granville which is 25 minutes to the west and Mont St. Michel, Bayeux and Avranches are all within an hour’s drive.  The pretty market town of Percy  has a supermarket, many shops and numerous bars and restaurants and hosts a market on Saturdays selling fresh farm produce. The larger market town of Villedieu Les Poeles, approx. 8 minutes drive away, has an indoor swimming pool and a large weekly market selling everything from food to clothing.
