Detached house in a quiet position with lovely views and possibility of living entirely on the ground floor

This house was extended in about 1976 to create 2 downstairs bedrooms and a bathroom.  The spacious open plan living space and downstairs bedrooms lends itself to someone wishing to live entirely on the ground floor.  There is a mezzanine lounge area on the first floor and another large bedroom.  It is positioned in the middle of its plot at the end of a “no through road” and has double glazed windows throughout with manual roller shutters.  There is an attached garage and workshop.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a rural hamlet with easy access to the historic market towns of MortainTinchebray and the major town of Flers. Mortain is a thriving market town where excellent shopping facilities, restaurants and bars are available. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and the property  is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches and the Mont St Michel.   An 18 hole golf course and the Saint-Sever forest are within 20 minutes drive.
