Character detached house with 1.5 acre garden and superb views

The property has been completely renovated by the present owners since 2007 including a new roof, windows, insulation, plumbing, re-wiring, a new kitchen and bathroom.  There were previously 3 bedrooms but they have taken a partition wall out to create a master bedroom with access onto a south-facing balcony to take advantage of the views, it could easily be re-established as a 3 bedroom house.   There are plenty of outside seating areas to take advantage of the superb views.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is situated in Southern Normandy, half way between the lively medieval market town of Villedieu les Poêles, famous for its copper production and the historic town of Vire, renowned for its culinary delights. The nearest ferry is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and the channel tunnel is at Calais which is about 4 hours away.  The village of Coulouvray Boisbenâtre is approximately  2 km away, with 2 bars/bistro, bakery and small store for essentials and Saint Pois is slightly further away.  The closest town, being some 10 minute drive away, is Brécey.  Here you will find the local supermarket – Super U which also offers Petrol/Diesel facilities 24 hours a day. The town also has other shops, bars and restaurants including a pizzeria, bakeries & banks schools and doctors’ surgery.  It is 50 km from mystical Mont St Michel and its bay and 40 km from Granville, with boats to the Channel islands. The house is also within easy reach of the D-day landing beaches.  The forest of Saint Sever is within a 10 minute drive.
