Small stone cottage in a quiet hamlet in Normandy

The property has been renovated by the present owners and has double glazed wood frame windows and a recent all water septic tank.  It now requires further renovation, particularly to the roof (which is part slate and part shingle) as there are signs of water infiltration.  There is a single storey, rendered block extension with a corrugated iron roof to the original stone house.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is situated between a village with a  bar/shop and bakery and the small town of Saint Pois. It is 15 minutes drive to the market town of Sourdeval and 15 minutes drive to Vire.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 10 minutes drive as is the Saint Sever forest.  It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  15 minutes from Sourdeval or 2 minutes drive to Saint Pois the nearest town.  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.
