House and gîte with garden and stream frontage in Normandy.

This delightful house and gîte are next door to each other in a quiet rural hamlet with separate gardens and superb views over the grounds, pond and stream.  The gîte sleeps up to 10 people and has been successfully rented out by the present owner.  The addition of a superb lounge extension to the main house which makes the most of the light and views makes this a super family home with income.  Viewing is highly recommended.

It is conveniently placed at the heart of the triangle Granville – Villedieu-les-Poêles – Avranches, ideal to discover the treasures of the Baie of Mont Saint-Michel.  Local amenities are found at La Haye-Pesnel which is a 5 minute drive. It is 1 hour 10 minutes away from Caen Ouistreham Ferry port and 1 hour 20 minutes from Cherbourg.  It is 12 km to the nearest beach at Genêts and 18 km to the UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel.  The pretty market and tourist town of Villedieu-les-Poêles is 10 minutes away with mainline trains to Paris (approx. 2 hours 50 mins) and motorway access to the A84.  It is 15 minutes away from the coast at Granville.
