Substantial detached family house with 5 en-suite bedrooms and separate 2 bedroom gîte with attractive gardens and swimming pool.

The main house and gîte benefit from hardwood framed double glazed windows, rewiring, new kitchens and bathrooms – having been completely renovated over the last 8 years by the present owners.  The current owners live in the “gîte” and let the light and airy main house for large groups. The property offers excellent income potential or would suit an extended family.  Viewing highly recommended to appreciate the quality and potential of this house and gîte.

The sandy beaches on the west coast of Normandy and the scenic coastal footpaths around the Baie du Mont St Michel are all under an hour’s drive away. The coastal towns and beaches of Northern Brittany are also within easy reach and well worth a day trip.  The Golf course near Vire is about 20 minutes drive.  The house is about 1 hour 20 minutes drive from Caen and around 2 hours from both Cherbourg and Le Havre, around 3 hours from Dieppe and around 5 hours from Calais. The nearest airport is at Dinard.  The village of Juvigny le Tertre is about 5 minutes away for everyday shopping.  More extensive facilities can be found at  Mortain or  St Hilaire du Harcouët (both about 20 minutes drive).  One of the largest regional markets in Normandy is held in St Hilaire each Wednesday morning.
