Substantial detached house, gîte and outbuildings with over an acre of garden

The property has been in the same family for several generations.  It offers a 5 bedroom main house and a 2 bedroom gîte which are separated by a barn.  There is another part renovated cottage in the garden.  The property was re-wired in about 2001/2 and has had some new flooring, some new windows, and insulation.  The glazed doors to the rear of the property used to open onto a balcony.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is located in a pretty village in the Normandy region of France, 16 km from Saint-Lo, the department capital.  It has a boulangerie, supermarket, bar-tabac, hairdresser and a great local restaurant. The 18th-century church has modern frescos and a carillon.  The village was recently awarded its 4th rosette as a ‘Village Fleurie” – Village in bloom.  Further facilities are to be found in Tessy-sur-Vire and Torigni-sur-Vire both with all amenities.  (General information: Tessy-sur-Vire is 249 km from Paris).  It is 303 km from the cross channel tunnel at Calais and the ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is less than an hour’s drive.  Nearby tourist attractions are  Coutances Cathedral (29 km), the Bayeux Tapestry (Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux) (43 km), D-Day Landing Beaches (46 km) or the UNESCO heritage site at Mont St Michel (49 km). Excellent transport links are available on the nearby A84 motorway.
