Renovation project with superb views over surrounding countryside.

At the moment the property consists of a small detached house with accommodation all on the ground floor.  There are external stairs to the first floor loft.  The property requires renovation and would make a two bedroom house or gîte.  The detached barn would make a superb conversion (outline planning has been requested) and the overall measurements are approximately 21m x 4.8m.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the scope and situation of this property.

The property is at the end of a lane near a quiet village.  Everyday facilities can be found at nearby Juvigny-le-Têrtre (3km) with shops, schools, banks, etc.   It is 14km from Mortain and 16km from the market town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët.  The property is situated in the north of France,  46 km from Saint-Lô, the department capital and 252km from Paris.  It is within easy driving distance of the port at Saint Malo or Caen Ouistreham. The channel tunnel at Calais is 327 km.  Direct trains to Paris can be located at Villedieu-les-Poêles 19km or Vire 21km. The UNESCO heritage site of the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel is about 33km.  The coast at Granville is 41km distant.
