Peaceful country house with 2 acres in Normandy

The property is in a quiet position looking out over its garden, paddocks and orchard.  It benefits from double glazed windows with roller shutters  and a recent Microstation for drainage.  There are several outbuildings including one attached to the house which would be ideal as a self-contained gîte or an extension to the house, subject to planning permission.  Viewing highly recommended.

The sandy beaches on the west coast of Normandy and the scenic coastal footpaths around the Baie du Mont St Michel are all under an hour’s drive away. The coastal towns and beaches of Northern Brittany are also within easy reach and well worth a day trip.  The Golf course near Vire is about 20 minutes drive.  The house is about 1 hour 20 minutes drive from Caen and around 2 hours from both Cherbourg and Le Havre, around 3 hours from Dieppe and around 5 hours from Calais. The nearest airport is at Dinard.  The village of Juvigny le Tertre is about 5 minutes away for everyday shopping.  More extensive facilities can be found at  Mortain or  St Hilaire du Harcouët (both about 20 minutes drive).  One of the largest regional markets in Normandy is held in St Hilaire each Wednesday morning.
