Superb stone house with room to extend in quiet rural hamlet

The house is situated in a quiet hamlet of 3 houses and dates back to the 1700’s.  There is huge potential to extend the accommodation into the adjoining storage room and the attic space which is on two different levels.  The accommodation is full of character with arched doors, plenty of exposed beams and stone walls and different levels.  It has double glazed windows, a recent shower room and downstairs toilet and a heat source exchange with a back up oil boiler supplying the central heating.  The house will come with large outbuildings and a manageable sized garden extending to about 1,500m2 which has to be delimited by a Land Surveyor prior to completion.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near a village with a  bar/shop and bakery.  10 minutes drive to the market town of Sourdeval and 15 minutes drive to Vire.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 10 minutes drive as is the Saint Sever forest.  It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  10 minutes from Sourdeval or Saint Pois the nearest towns.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg.
