Detached stone house with superb views in quiet rural hamlet in Normandy.
The property benefits from light rooms and a superb view over the valley and surrounding fields. It has had some upgrading to the electrics, partial double glazing, new bathroom and kitchen and has been recently redecorated. There is further potential to create an attached gîte, or two, or extend the main living accommodation if required and subject to planning permission. Viewing is highly recommended.
The property is a couple of kilometers away from the nearest village with bakery and bar/restaurant. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, a few kilometers 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.
