Detached stone house with self-contained gîte and outbuildings all situated in an acre of land

This house is believed to have been built in 1470 and first refurbished in 1807 and offers characterful accommodation of a main house with a connecting door to a one bedroom gîte.  There is room to extend the accommodation into the ground floor or the adjoining barns.  It has been re-wired and completely re-decorated with new kitchen and bathrooms over the last 6 years.  There is a separate detached house ready for renovation with its own all water septic tank (installed in 2016).  It is situated in a quiet rural hamlet next to a small church and a large Manor house. The property lends itself to use as a B&B or for extended family due to the arrangement of the accommodation.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is a few minutes drive away from the small town of Putanges-le-Lac, where you will find bars, a restaurant, small grocery store, boulangerie and a veterinary practice.  A 30 minute drive will find you in the larger town of Flers, with a hospital, multiple shops and restaurants and a train station with daily trains to Paris . The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is 1 hour’s drive,  Cherbourg is 2 hour’s drive and Calais i4 hours.    It is located within easy reach of Mont St Michel, the D-day Beaches and Bayeux.
