Tastefully modernised village house in Normandy for sale in a village with bar/shop/restaurant.  Ideal for a holiday home or full time living.

This deceptively spacious village house was probably built in stone with a slate roof just after the second world war over a basement.  It has been completely modernised by the present owner and now offers an interesting mix of post war construction with up to date modern features including new bathrooms and kitchen.  There is a downstairs bedroom with en-suite shower room and 3 first floor bedrooms. Viewing is highly recommended.  The property has been successfully let out at £495 per week and this could be continued to offset mortgage payments or running costs if required.

This detached house is situated in a village with a bar/restaurant and shop and near Mortain where you will find shops, schools, doctors’ surgeries, supermarkets, etc. and local walking, and fishing. Extensive recreational facilities can be found nearby including local waterfalls and walking clubs, canoeing and outdoor sports.
