Converted barn with outbuildings and over half an acre of land

This house has been modernised by the present owners over the last 20 years.  The steel sheet roofing was done in 2011 and there is a mixture of double and single glazed windows and doors.  The woodburner with backboiler was installed to run the heating system in about 2012.  It offers comfortable accommodation with a pretty garden and several outbuildings.  There is room to extend the accommodation into the adjoining barn, subject to planning.  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 the village of Saint-Pois. The nearest ferry is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and the channel tunnel is at Calais which is about 4 hours away.  The village has a bar/restaurant 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.
