Detached house with gîte, beautiful gardens, paddocks and outbuildings

This property offers further potential to extend in to the adjoining garages if required, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission. The gîte is rented out in peak season for £250 per week.  There is the possibility of renting  additional land adjoining the property.  The layout of the garden and paddocks give a very pleasant outlook from the property.  The property benefits from double glazed windows and the majority was re-wired in 2006.  The accommodation is very versatile and would lend itself to either generating an additional income or for a relative or teenager.  Viewing is recommended.

The property is situated in a peaceful position in a rural hamlet on a small lane near to the Mortainais forest, within easy access of both the historic market town of Mortain and the small town of Ger and Beauchêne. Barenton and Ger are about 4 km from the property and the busy town of Flers is a 20 minute drive. 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. The D-Day landing beaches and the Mont St Michel are about an hour’s drive away. The nearest airport is at Dinard (113 km) and the nearest mainline railway is at Vire (19 km) with direct access to Paris in about 2 hours 40 minutes.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 20 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.
