Superb country house in Normandy with 6 bedrooms and over 3 acres.

This country house has been owned by the same family since 1838.  It benefits from spacious family accommodation on 3 floors.  The windows are double glazed with shutters.  The wiring system was brought up to regulations in 2016.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near a quiet village, whilst Vire and Villedieu-Les-Poeles are both pleasant historic towns approx 10-15 minutes drive away.  Granville, with its excellent beaches, sailing marina and fishing port is only a 30-minute drive west from St Sever, with Mont St. Michel, Bayeux with its famous tapestry, Avranches, Coutances, St Lo and the D-Day landing sites in easy reach.  The village of St Sever has a good variety of local shops including a pharmacy, dry-cleaners as well as all the essential food and delicacies for which the region is famous. Saint Sever is a farming/market town with a substantial range of local shops and facilities.  The property is easily accessible with airports  at  Caen Carpiquet (1 hour), Rennes, Dinard and Deauville offering direct flights from the UK.  The Channel Ports of Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and both Le Havre and Cherbourg (90 minutes)are easily accessible  and it will take 4 hours to drive to the Channel tunnel at Calais.  There is a mainline train station at Vire which is on the Paris/Granville line and connects with Paris in about 2 hours and 40 minutes.
