Rural idyll for Sale in Normandy

When it was first built this detached stone house would almost certainly have had a thatched roof over its eyebrow windows.   Driving up the long drive and seeing the house for the first time is like going back in time!  One of the many selling points of this house is the beautiful setting, another is the 2 original granite fireplaces.  The house offers huge potential for a purchaser to renovate it in to a large family home or house with gîte on a plot extending to just under 3/4 acre (to be delimited).

The house is in Calvados in the Normandy region of France. Local facilities can be found at Saint Sever (6km) and the nearest major towns are Villedieu-les-Poêles (15km) and Vire with SNCF railway to Paris in about 2 hours 50 minutes.  The closest airport to Le Gast is Dinard Airport (76 km) in the surrounding area are Rennes Airport (94 km) and  Deauville Airport(110 km).   The UNESCO site of  Mont St Michel is 36 km away, Coutances Cathedral (38 km), Bayeux Tapestry (Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux) (59 km), and the  D-Day Landing Beaches (64 km).


On the ground floor – 

Living room : 5.52m x 5.48m – Double aspect with 1/2 glazed front door and windows (with wooden shutters) to the front and rear elevations.  Granite fireplace.  Sink unit.  Exposed stone walls. (This part of the house would have been the original dwelling).  Door to –

Adjoining barn : 6.68m x 5.48m – Stone walls.  This barn currently has a storage mezzanine.  The floor is on 2 levels.  2 doors to the front elevation.

Room : 4.27m x 4.21m  – Window and door to the front elevation.  Loft above. (This room was probably another small  house in days gone by or a bakery).


A long driveway leads up to the house which is situated in a quiet rural position.  There is a hardstanding turning and parking area in front of the house and an attached garage to the left of the house (approx. 5.48mx 4.91m).  Well (formerly used for the house).  2 orchards. 3 stone outbuildings with corrugated roofs.  The land extends to approximately 2,900m² to be delimited.


Mains water is within the boundary of the property although formerly the house was connected to the well water.  Electricity was previously brought into the house. The house does not have any sort of drainage.
