Spacious detached family house with studio and large garden for sale near Sourdeval in Normandy

This spacious detached house would be ideal for a large family or for someone wishing to work from home.  It benefits from a large covered terrace, a studio and a garden of approximately three quarters (to be delimited).  The majority of the windows are double glazed.  The property requires some finishing works including fitting a bathroom on the first floor, some tiling and connecting the electricity to the first floor over the new section of the house (lounge).  It would also lend itself to use as a B&B.  Viewing is recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approx. 5 kms from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market.  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.
