Detached house with large barn and no neighbours

This pretty detached house stands in an elevated position set back from the road and protected by a tall hedge.  There are no close neighbours.  The accommodation is immaculately presented and ready to move straight in to.  The rooms are light and there is a versatile layout.  A particular feature of the property is a modern fully fitted kitchen with breakfast area which was professionally installed about 8 years ago and looks new.  The property had a new roof in 2017 and benefits from uPvc double glazed windows with shutters.  Outside there is a private, fully enclosed garden, a large barn, double car port and a caravan shelter.   Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is midway between Vire and Flers (both a 20 minute drive) which both offer all major facilities, including daily trains to Paris, close to a small pretty village.  The small medieval town of Tinchebray with shops, bars, banks, schools, doctors’ surgeries and Vassy are about 5 minutes drive away.  The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is 1 hour’s drive, 1 1/2 hours from Dinard, Cherbourg is 1 1/2 hour’s drive and Calais is 3 1/2 hour’s drive.  The airport can be reached in under 90 minutes.  It is located within easy reach of Mont St Michel, the D-day Beaches and Bayeux.
