Ideal renovation project in a picturesque Town centre in Normandy.  This stone house could easily be divided into 2 duplex apartments.  A little imagination and inspiration required!

At present the property is loosely divided into a ground floor studio apartment with a basement, and a duplex above on the first and second floors.  The first floor is in better condition but the property will require re-wiring, new windows, heating, new bathrooms and kitchens.  The basement could be incorporated into living accommodation as an extension to the studio apartment.

This pretty town house is in the centre of the  busy market town of Villedieu-les-Poêles.  The nearest beach is at Granville which is 25 minutes to the west and UNESCO heritage site of Mont St. Michel, Bayeux and Avranches are all within an hour’s drive. The house is within easy driving distance of the A84 motorway access at Villedieu-les-Poêles or Pont Farcy .  Vire is about 22km distant to the east.   It is situated in the Manche department (Normandy region) in the north of France about 25 km from Saint-Lo, the department capital, and 252 km from Paris which can be reached by rail at nearby Villedieu-les-Poêles in approx. 2 hours and 50 minutes.  The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is the closest and can be reached in less than 1 hour, with Cherbourg Octeville, Saint Malo and Le Havre within easy reach.  It is also well placed for other transport links with the airports at Caen Carpiquet and Deauville, Dinard and Rennes.
