Beautiful stone country house with over 1.25 acres and several outbuildings

This gorgeous house has been completely renovated and landscaped and is now ready for a new owner. The electrical installation has been upgraded and there are lockable shutters to the windows and doors on the front elevation. It offers flexible accommodation over three floors and is ideal for someone wishing to work from home.  The property has an excellent working space in the larger of the barns and could be used for a car collection, studio or even for a self-contained apartment.  For clients looking at a property with gîtes, the other outbuildings offer potential for conversion (subject to planning). Planning for barn conversion has been obtained in the past. Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  a few kilometers from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minute’s drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minute’s drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.
