Detached house in quiet rural hamlet with 3/4 acre garden and ponds

This substantial property is at the end of no-through road in a quiet rural hamlet and it stands in the middle of its plot.  The roof was renewed about 15 years ago.  The mature and pretty gardens feature 2 ponds and a natural setting.  Viewing is highly recommended.

Every day facilities can be found at St Pois, which is 4.4 km, and has a post office, boulangerie, butcher (who does a take-away dish on Thursdays), mini-market, doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, hairdresser, a small restaurant and a bar-tabac.  The larger town of Brécey (11 km) has a supermarket and a good selection of other shops. It also has a leisure area which includes an open air swimming pool, a paddling pool and tennis court.  Further facilities can be found at  Mortain and the market town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët (both within a 15 minute drive).  The property is situated in the north of France,  51 km from Saint-Lô, the department capital and 341 km from Paris.  It is within easy driving distance of the port at Saint Malo or Caen Ouistreham. The D-day landing beaches are an hour’s drive away.  The channel tunnel at Calais is 447 km.  Direct trains to Paris can be located at Villedieu-les-Poêles 22 km or Vire 22 km. The UNESCO heritage site of the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel is about 53 km.  The coast at Granville is 52 km distant.
