Village house to renovate with additional attached property for potential gite

This house stands in a prominent position and could easily be renovated to create a main house and attached gîte or a large family house.  There is a parking space for one car and a garage in the basement.  It offers huge potential.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a pretty market town and near the forest of Saint Sever. There is easy access on foot to shops, supermarket, doctors’ surgery, bars, banks, post office, hairdresser, etc. and even a public heated outdoor swimming pool so there is no problem getting home after a drink or two! The west coast beaches are just 40 minutes drive away.  The historic towns of Caen, Fougeres and Bayeux and the landing beaches are all within easy reach , as is the UNESCO heritage site of Mont-Saint-Michel (36km). The forest of Saint-Sever is perfect for walking or cycling and starts about 10 minutes walk away from the house.  There are an excellent variety of excellent French restaurants within easy reach.

The larger towns of Vire and Villedieu-les-Poêles are about 10 minutes drive away  with SNCF railway to Paris in about 2 hours 50 minutes.    The Bayeux Tapestry (Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux) (59 km), and the  D-Day Landing Beaches (64 km).  Caen (Ouistreham) is one of the most convenient ferry ports and takes about 1 hour 10 miunutes to drive.  Saint Malo and Cherbourg-Octeville are less than 2 hours away.  Although  further, Le Havre and Dieppe provide additional options.
