The property has been renovated using eco-friendly materials including hemp insulation since 2010 – the double glazed windows were professionally installed and the vendors have replaced the roof timbers and slates, insulated the property and created a kitchen and new bathroom.  There is further possibility to extend the living accommodation into the attached former shop or create a self-contained gîte or annexe or shop.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is in a village.  Everyday facilities can be found at nearby Juvigny-le-Têrtre (6km) with shops, schools, banks, etc.   It is about 8km from Mortain and 19km from the market town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët.  The property is situated in the north of France,  73 km from Saint-Lô, the department capital and 252km from Paris.  It is within easy driving distance of the port at Saint Malo or Caen Ouistreham.
