Detached house with room to extend into adjoining barn and over 1.25 acres with outbuildings

This house is situated in a rural hamlet in an elevated position.  Over the past 14 years it has been improved by the present owners including a new roof on the house and adjoining barn, and garage.  It now offers spacious accommodation with the possibility of doubling the habitable space or creating an attached gîte or annexe.  There is a large detached barn giving plenty of storage space, and space for a caravan or Motor Home and/or several cars.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  and close to the thriving market town of Sourdeval. The town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  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.
