Beautiful stone house in stunning setting for sale in Normandy in the Sée Valley.
This Maison de Maître has been completely renovated to modern day standards but is in keeping with its period with many original features including exposed beams and stonework, granite fireplace, original floorboards, etc. This property really is in a stunning position, ideal for those seeking complete peace and quiet. It forms part of a small hamlet on an old mill site in a river valley with salmon and trout fishing and unrestricted access to about 50 acres of privately maintained woodland and meadows which create an outstanding environment for the pleasure of residents and their guests. Viewing is highly recommended.
It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, approx. 5 kms 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 property is within a 20 minute walk of a well known local restaurant. The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes 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 minutes drive, as is the Saint Sever forest. The nearest Airport is at Dinard (70 miles), Ferry Ports at Caen (50 miles) or a one and a quarter hour drive to Saint Malo, and the nearest train station is at Vire (8 miles) from where you can take a fast train to Paris.
