Detached house with over 2 acres and numerous outbuildings

The property has direct access to a GR route bridleway/footpath making it ideal for an equestrian enthusiast.  It stands in a hamlet but is not overlooked.    The current owner has continually maintained the property.  The roof was overhauled in 1995 and the electrical wiring in 2018.  It would be ideal for someone wishing to work from home, for a small-holding or for a classic car collector.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approx. 5 1/2 km from Sourdeval, the nearest town. The town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The property is within a 5 minute drive of a well known local restaurant. The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval 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, the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.  The nearest Airport is at Dinard (70 miles), Ferry Ports at Caen (50 miles) or a one and a quarter hour drive to Saint Malo, and the nearest train station is at Vire (8 miles) from where you can take a fast train to Paris.
