 Detached stone house with gîte, outbuildings and 6.5 acres in Normandy

The property comprises a spacious main house with 3/4 bedrooms built of stone with a slate roof and an attached 3 bedroom gîte with separate entrance and services.  They are separated currently by a wall and between the two properties is a barn/storage room which gives access to an enormous loft area over the house.   It offers great potential for a home and income, to create a smallholding or equestrian property.  There are several good size stone barns for stabling and storage or even conversion into additional gîtes (subject to planning).  Superb views over the surrounding countryside.  The main house has partial double glazing with tilt and turn upvc windows and electric shutters.  The remaining windows have shutters too.  The gîte requires renovation. Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in an attractive valley near the Saint Sever forest.  Despite its rural situation it is near larger towns with shops and facilities including road and rail links to Paris and the rest of France.   The larger towns of Vire and Villedieu-les-Poêles are about 10 minutes drive away  with SNCF railway to Paris in about 2 hours 50 minutes.  The closest airport to the property is Dinard Airport (76 km) and  in the surrounding area are Rennes Airport (94 km) and  Deauville Airport(110 km).   The UNESCO site of  Mont St Michel is 36 km away, Coutances Cathedral (38 km), Bayeux Tapestry (Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux) (59 km), and the  D-Day Landing Beaches (64 km).
