Well presented detached house with annexe and 1.25 acres

This  property was renovated by the previous owners between 2013 and 2015 and divided into a main house and attached 2 bedroom annexe.  It is well presented throughout with light rooms and versatile accommodation.  There is the possibility of a ground floor bedroom in the main house and it would be easy to recreate an opening between the house and annexe.  The house is surrounded by its gardens and is within an easy level walk of the local shop/bar/restaurant.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is situated in Southern Normandy, half way between the lively medieval market town of Villedieu-les-Poêles, famous for its copper production and the historic town of Vire, renowned for its culinary delights. The nearest ferry is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and the channel tunnel is at Calais which is about 4 hours away.  The village has a bar, bakery and small store for essentials and Saint Pois is slightly further away.  The closest town, being some 10 minute drive away, is Brécey.  Here you will find the local supermarket – Super U which also offers Petrol/Diesel facilities 24 hours a day. The town also has other shops, bars and restaurants including a pizzeria, bakeries & banks schools and doctors’ surgery.  It is 50 km from mystical Mont St Michel and its bay and 40 km from Granville, with boats to the Channel islands. The house is also within easy reach of the D-day landing beaches.  The forest of Saint Sever is within a 10 minute drive.
