Delightful country cottage for sale in Normandy with additional old stone house with full planning permission to convert and superb views.

The cottage has been completely renovated to a high standard and was formerly an old bakery.  There is further potential to convert the large detached stone house which has approximately 90m² ground floor surface area which has planning permission to convert in to a superb house with two en-suite bedrooms.   The all water septic tank is up to current regulations and is large enough to service both properties once the conversion has been done. The cottage is situated at the end of a “no through” road with one neighbour.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, about 5 kilometers 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 15 minutes drive, as is the Saint Sever forest.
