Semi-detached cottage with 2 ground floor bedrooms and potential loft conversion

This cottage offers great potential to double the accommodation by converting the loft space.  It is habitable as it it on the ground floor.  It is attached to an old house which is used for storage.  There is a small manageable garden which surrounds the property. Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approx. 3 km from Sourdeval, the nearest town. The town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market. Further amenities can be found at Vire-Normandie (11 km) with all amenities including a train station giving access to Paris. The property is within a 15 minute drive of a well known local restaurant. 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.  The nearest  Ferry Ports are at Caen (50 miles) or a one and a quarter hour drive to Saint Malo, and the nearest train station is at Vire (8 miles) from where you can take a fast train to Paris.
