Tiny house to renovate with nearly half an acre

This property was an old bakery.  It now requires complete renovation and currently comprises a living room with granite fireplace and a drop down hatch to the loft space which has a floor but will need insulating and plasterboarding – it has restricted head height.  There is an attached garage which has been used as a kitchen with a shower room and toilet behind it (the previous owner lived in it as it is).  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated less than 90 minutes from Cherbourg and  1 hour to Caen. The nearest beach is at Granville which is 25 minutes to the west and Mt St. Michel and Bayeux are all within an hour’s drive. The Normandy Beaches, Dinan and Rennes take a little longer and Monet’s Garden at Giverney is a comfortable day trip out.   Villedieu-les-Poêles is a pretty town with many places to visit, including an indoor swimming pool, a bell foundry, a lace and copper museum and copper workshops. The market on Tuesday mornings is excellent. There are plenty of places to walk in the area.  The major town of Avranches is a 20 minute drive.
