Detached countryside property in need of complete modernisation close to village with amenities

This house has not been lived in for a number of years.  It will require complete modernisation but has double glazed windows.  The integral garage could be converted into a ground floor bedroom if required.  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.
