Message From The Seller

When I have stayed at my sisters house in the summer it’s very tranquil and peaceful only hearing the birds sing , when the garden was not overgrown it was beautiful,  around by the garage there is a fruit orchard apples , pears , cherries which she had made jam and I’m sure other fruits , there is a vegetable patch/ polytunnel also, so great potential to grow vegetables obviously overgrown now sadly, also two property entrances which is gated over on the other side with an access road that leads up to the property behind , so potential for a holiday let if the garage was converted as I’m sure the last owners had added a 2nd floor in the garage.

Traditional detached Normandy house with 3/4 acre and large garage

This attractive detached house sits in an elevated position with superb views.  It would benefit from modernisation and will need a new septic tank.  The gardens are mainly to the front and sides of the property and there is a large detached garage.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is conveniently situated just outside the pretty town of Mortain with its Abbey, waterfalls, 11th century Chapel and panoramic view of Mont St. Michel (about 3.5 km).  This delightful town also offers a selection of Bars and Restaurants to suit all tastes and a wide range of shops together with a large supermarket. The medieval town of Domfront, with is narrow streets and ruined castle, also offers the same facilities within a 20 minute drive.  Also St. Hilaire du Harcouet is only 12kms with a big weekly market.  The UNESCO heritage site at Mont St Michel is 46 km away.  The Voie Verte which forms part of the Paris to Mont St Michel cycleway and provides links into a further network of routes throughout Manche, into Calvados and Bretagne is 1.5 km from the property. Located at the southern tip of Manche the property is served by the ports of Caen Ouistreham ( 1 hr 15 min.), Cherbourg (2 hr 15 min.), Le Havre (2 hrs) and Calais (5 hrs).
