Detached house divided into two self-contained apartments with garden and large barn

This detached house has been divided into two apartments.  The one on the ground floor has been modernised more recently than the one on the first floor (which has a sink and toilet but no shower or bath).  The property is well maintained and there is a large garage/workshop.  Ideal for multi-generational living or as a gîte.  Alternatively a connecting door could be put back in to create a house.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The two apartments are situated in a village with a bar/restaurant and shop and near Mortain where you will find shops, schools, doctors’ surgeries, supermarkets, etc. and local walking, and fishing. Extensive recreational facilities can be found nearby including local waterfalls and walking clubs, canoeing and outdoor sports. Major towns such as Caen, St Malo, St Lo, Falaise, Bayeux, Honfleur and Northern Brittany available for day trips. Normandy landing beaches are easily accessible. Suisse Normande and Spa towns 35 minutes drive.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is 41 km and the Saint Sever forest is 16 km for walking, riding and cycling.  Large French Mobile home site within 50 minutes for all resort facilities… pedaloes, canoe, football, fishing, pools with slides, snooker, entertainment. There is an open air swimming pool and Go Karting track within a 5 minute drive. Weekly market on a Tuesday in Sourdeval, including Livestock. 20 mins to Bowling, sports centers and 18 hole golf course.
