Detached house in a hamlet with nearly half an acre

This house has been restored by the present owners over the last 12 years and has had new windows, a new wall and land drainage works done.  It was re-wired in 2011/12.  It sits in a quiet rural hamlet overlooking its garden.  There are many character features and room to extend into the attached barn and loft space of it.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is located in Manche in the Normandy region of France near the pretty town of Barenton which is nestled between thriving towns such as Mortain, Domfront and Saint-hilaire-du-harcouët. There is a local supermarket, florist/gift shop, electrical appliance store, builders merchant, kebab shop, a wonderful boulangerie, bars, a bank, doctors, restaurant, a car dealership and more.  The UNESCO Heritage site of Mont St Michel is 58 km away and the coast at Granville is about 1 1/2 hours’ drive.  It is about 25 minutes to a 9 hole golf course Golf De Bagnoles – Route de Domfront at Bagnoles sur Orne.  The ferry ports are within easy reach – 1 hour to Caen Ouistreham, 4 1/2 hours to Calais, 2 1/2 hours to Le Harvre port or Cherbourg. It is about 2 hours 15 mins to Paris by train.  More extensive facilities can be found in the historic town of Domfront,  and the town of Flers with a swimming pool, bowling, restaurants, shops and schools.
