Detached 4 bedroom house with 2.5 acres and outbuildings

The property stands in a quiet hamlet with only one neighbour and the end of a no through lane.  It requires some modernisation and renovation works including attention to the roof and wiring.  It is a substantial family home with the added benefit of a large games room with bar.  There are several useful outbuildings. Viewing is highly recommended.

The closest town is Le Teilleul (6 km) – it has 2 banks, 2 boulangeries, butcher, supermarket, restaurants and bars, and a good, although small, weekly market. The property is situated in the Selune Valley on the boundary of the ‘Parc Naturel Regional Normandie Maine’, amidst rolling countryside in a small rural hamlet, with one other property at the end of a “no through road”.   Nearest main facilities are to be found in the pretty town of Mortain with its Abbey, waterfalls, 11th century Chapel and panoramic view of Mont St. Michel (about 10 minutes drive). This delightful town also offers a selection of Bars and Restaurants to suit all tastes and a wide range of shops together with a large supermarket. The medieval town of Domfront, with is narrow streets and ruined castle, also offers the same facilities within a 20 minute drive.  Also St. Hilaire du Harcouet is only 12kms with a big weekly market.  The UNESCO heritage site at Mont St Michel is 46 km away.  The Voie Verte which forms part of the Paris to Mont St Michel cycleway and provides links into a further network of routes throughout Manche, into Calvados and Bretagne is 1.5 km from the property.  Located at the southern tip of Manche the property is served by the ports of Caen Ouistreham ( 1 hr 15 min.), Cherbourg (2 hr 15 min.), Le Havre (2 hrs) and Calais (5 hrs).
