Renovated Mill – former fishery with river on the boundary and large garden of over 1 hectare.  Quiet position with no neighbours – ideal for fishing enthusiasts.

This renovated mill is situated in a pretty location in the Brouains valley with the river Sée, known for salmon fishing, running through its land which extends to about 2 3/4 acres.  This property for sale in Normandy has been the subject of extensive renovation over the last 15 years and it now benefits from double glazing, an all water septic tank with pump and rewiring.    The current owners have created a lovely home to suit their own requirements.  At present there is only one bedroom but there is space for 3 bedrooms if required.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approx. 5 kms from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  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.
