Renovated stone house with detached barn in quiet position

A particular feature of this property was the well stocked, landscaped gardens of just over an acre – they are now overgrown and need plenty of TLC to return to their former glory.  The house itself has been completely renovated but would now benefit from some re-decoration and the second floor bedroom requires finishing.  It benefits from double glazed windows and a woodburner provides the heating.   There is a separate detached old stone house which could be renovated to create a gîte (subject to planning). Viewing is highly recommended.

The house stands in a quiet rural hamlet with one other property in a slighly elevated position with views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.

It is near the Town of Vassy (6km) in the Calvados department (Normandy region) in the north of France  43 km from Caen, the department capital.  Vassy is 221 km from Paris (mainline train station at Vire (15 minutes away) and 295 km from the port at Calais.  Rennes – Saint-Jacques Airport (RNS) is approximately two hours and 10 minute’s drive from Vassy. Flights arrive here from Southampton year round as well as seasonally from Cork, Dublin, Edinburgh, Exeter  and Manchester.   Many activities are available for those staying in Vassy with lots of glorious countryside to be explored making this ideal for hiking, horse riding and cycling. There are public tennis courts nearby in the area as well as several golf courses including one a Clécy, which is 20 kilometers from Vassy and the 18 hole Golf de Vire.
