Detached stone house with lovely views to finish renovating

This substantial house has planning permission for conversion into a dwelling and has had a new roof, an all water septic tank and partial rewiring.  It enjoys beautiful views over the valley and a garden just under half an acre.  Viewing is highly recommended.

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 village of Gathemo is about 2.5km from the property and has a bakery, bar and shop.  The major city of Vire is only 12km from the house and offers all amenities including a railway station with a direct train to Paris.  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.
