Detached country house with 1.25 acres

This charming country house offers light, well presented accommodation including a recently fitted kitchen and an unusual 2 sided woodburner between the lounge and kitchen/dining room.  The land is fairly level and would be suitable for ponies. Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  a few kilometers from Mortain, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including  banks and supermarkets. The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Mortain is approximately 90 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and fifty 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.
