This superb house is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, 3 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 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 20 minutes drive, as is the Saint Sever forest.
The house has been carefully restored by local Artisans and the quality of workmanship shows through. The accommodation is versatile and has been set out to allow for either end of the house to be closed off and used for B&B guests or family whilst maintaining the privacy of the main house. There are separate accesses and stairs to the first floor at either end. The property is built of stone under a new slate roof and benefits from a new all water septic tank, new wiring, new windows and doors and gas fired central heating.
