Gorgeous detached farmhouse with outbuildings, swimming pool and nearly 2 acres

This delightful property is believed to have been built in about 1800 and offers character features including a granite fireplace.  It had a major refurbishment programme in 2007-8 with works undertaken by registered French Artisans.  It now offers comfortable family living accommodation with light rooms and high ceilings.  There is further potential to re-develop the Games Room or even to renovate the barn into additional accommodation, subject to planning permission.  At the moment the property is a holiday rental and has been consistently rented out over the last 20 years for about 20 weeks per year.  The weekly rental is approximately 2,000€.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is in an enviable position with the nearest neighbour about 1/2 km away.  There are 360° views over the surrounding countryside and the large, old farmhouse sits on its own and surrounded by its own land.  There is a wood close by which is criss-crossed by small streams and is a haven for wildlife.  However, 2 miles in either direction will bring you to 2 well-appointed villages. It is just 6 miles to the bustling town of Vire with its wealth of restaurants, shops, theatre, cinema, weekly market etc. and direct train line to Paris. The property is situated near a village with a  bar/shop and bakery just 10 minutes drive to the market town of Sourdeval and 10 minutes drive to Vire.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 10 minutes drive as is the Saint Sever forest.  It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados.  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.
