Pretty detached stone house with far-reaching views over the valley to modernise in Normandy. Ideal for carpenter, mechanic, etc. with about 200m² of outbuildings.

The house benefits from double glazed windows and shutters throughout.  It would benefit from re-wiring, a new kitchen, bathroom and decoration to maximise its potential.

The property is situated on the Manche/Calvados border and is only 1 hour away from the ferry port at Caen Ouistreham and 3 hours from Paris. Calais is about 4 hours away. The D-Day landing beaches, Granville, Mont Saint Michel and the Brittany coast are all less than an hour’s drive away. The UNESCO heritage site of the Mont Saint Michel is about 40 minutes drive. The nearest main town is Villedieu-les-Poêles about 10 minutes drive away and Vire is approximately 15 minutes distant.  The property is also well placed to pick up the A84 motorway at Pont-Farcy or Villedieu-les-Poêles.
