Substantial 5 bedroom house with basement and garden

This detached property was built in 1976 on a stone basement and has a manageable sized garden.  It offers spacious accommodation with a ground floor bedroom and bathroom.  It would benefit from further modernisation and re-decoration.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is situated in Southern Normandy, half way between the lively medieval market town of Villedieu-les-Poêles, famous for its copper production and the historic town of Vire, renowned for its culinary delights. The nearest ferry is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and the channel tunnel is at Calais which is about 4 hours away.  The nearest  village is within walking distance with a bar, bakery and small store for essentials and Saint Pois is slightly further away.  The closest town, being some 10 minute drive away, is Brécey.  Here you will find the local supermarket – Super U which also offers Petrol/Diesel facilities 24 hours a day. The town also has other shops, bars and restaurants including a pizzeria, bakeries & banks schools and doctors’ surgery.  It is 50 km from mystical Mont St Michel and its bay and 40 km from Granville, with boats to the Channel islands. The house is also within easy reach of the D-day landing beaches.  The forest of Saint Sever is within a 10 minute drive.
