Detached house and gîte with large garden and outbuilding within walking distance of amenities and near a Golf Course in Normandy.

This detached house is positioned in the village centre.  The present owners have had the gîte rewired, a centralised mechanical ventilation system installed and all the pipework for the plumbing as been renewed. There are upvc double glazed windows and a recent  kitchen. The main house requires the ground floor to be finished and a new (not fitted) kitchen is available from the current owners.  The accommodation is light and airy and would make an ideal home and income or extended family accommodation.  It has a large garden, barn and basement.  Viewing is recommended to appreciate its size and potential.

The property is situated near a village with a bar/shop and bakery. 10 minutes drive to the market town of Sourdeval and 15 minutes drive to Vire. The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 10 minutes drive as is the Saint Sever forest. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, 10 minutes from Sourdeval or Saint Pois the nearest towns. 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.
