Detached stone house in enviable rural setting overlooking the valley.  The house would benefit from modernisation and extension into the basement and attic to maximise its potential.

The property has a water source and the land extends to over 5 1/2 acres which makes the property ideal for equestrian use, if required.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, approx. 5 kms from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, 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.
