Superb detached house with 3 B&B rooms and 2.6 acres in quiet rural area

The house is believed to have been built in 1649 and it was completely refurbished in about 2013 with high quality fixtures and fittings, spacious rooms and plenty of character features.  There are three first floor B&B rooms which each let for 68€ per night.  One has a private sitting room and the en-suite bathroom will be finished shortly.  There is further potential to create a fifth en-suite bedroom in the loft and plumbing is already in place, the walls are plastered, etc.  Outside the recently built barn offers potential to those wishing to work from home or for a car collector.  Viewing is recommended to appreciate this superb property.

The property is situated between two quiet villages, 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 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.
