Charming 2 bedroom country cottage in Normandy with character features and over 1/2 garden with a pretty old stone bakery and other outbuildings.
The cottage has been completely renovated over the last 12 years including re-wiring, double glazed windows, new kitchen and bathroom, electric heating and an all water septic tank. There are 2 outbuildings in excellent condition which would be ideal to convert into gîtes, subject to planning. Viewing is highly recommended.
The cottage is in a quiet position, attached to a neighbouring property in a rural hamlet about 3 km from the small town of Barenton with a local supermarket, bakeries, pharmacy, hairdresser, post office, tabac and cafés. Further shopping can be found at Mortain and Domfront (10km) and St Hilaire du Harcouet (15 km). The ferry port of Caen Ouistreham is about 1 hour 15 minutes away, served by Britanny Ferries from Portsmouth. St Malo with its ferry port is 1 1/2 hours away and Cherbourg is 2 hours. Calais and the Euro Tunnel are approximately a 5 hour drive. Airports within 2 hours are Rennes, Deauville (Ryanair from Stansted), Dinard (Ryanair flights from Bristol, Birmingham, London Stansted and East Midlands) and Cherbourg (Flybe from Southampton).
