Immaculate detached house in Normandy with 1/2 acre garden and large barn

This lovely detached house has been completely restored by the previous owners inside and out.  It is offered in immaculate condition and benefits from double glazed wood frame windows, new electrics, plumbing, bathrooms, kitchen, floors and insulation.  It is ready to move in to and stands in a garden of over half an acre which is well planted and established.  There is a separate large barn with its own access which incorporates an old stone house which is ideal for renovation, subject to planning.  There is a  new all water septic tank installed in 2011 which is large enough to be used if the old house is converted.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approx. 1 km from Sourdeval, the nearest town. The town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  The property is within a 5 minute drive of a well known local restaurant. 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.  The nearest Airport is at Dinard (70 miles), Ferry Ports at Caen (50 miles) or a one and a quarter hour drive to Saint Malo, and the nearest train station is at Vire (8 miles) from where you can take a fast train to Paris.
