Message From The Seller

Since buying the house we have added a bathroom and dressing room to the first floor and a wood burner in the lounge.  In the garden we have planted cherry, plum, apple and pear trees which provide us with fruit in the summer and autumn.

Detached house with over an acre of garden

The property is in a convenient position between the towns of Brécey and Villedieu-les-Poêles.  The property could be used as a bungalow as there are two bedrooms on the ground floor and is built over a full basement.  The garden is just over one acre.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a quiet rural position between Brécey (6 km) – with shops, schools, dentist and doctors’ surgery and the larger town of Villedieu-les-Poêles (14 km).  It is within an easy drive (50 minutes) of the beach and the Normandy landing beaches. The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel, a must see for anyone visiting Normandy, is just a short distance along the coast (about 45 minutes). Within a short drive is the 18 hole golf course and Lake Dathée near Vire (19 km), and the forest of Saint Sever.  Dinard Airport is about 100 km, as is Caen Ouistreham ferry port. Easy access to the Channel Islands via the port at Saint-Malo (85 km).
