Working Mill with Studio in Normandy

This type of working Mill is rarely seen on the market – it has a detached house and separate old forge/studio with further accommodation.  It was originally a Flour Mill and then a cutlery mill with an old forge.  There are two mill races with a water wheel that generates electricity.  Viewing is highly recommended.

It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados,  approximately 7kms from Sourdeval with every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market and 4 miles from Mortain.  The beaches on the west coast near Avranches are a  45 minute drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes drive from the port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches, the Mont St Michel.  The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 15 minutes drive,  as is the Saint Sever forest.  The nearest Airport is at Dinard (63 miles), Ferry Ports at Caen (62 miles) or a one and a quarter hour drive to Saint Malo, and the nearest train station is at Vire (10 miles) from where you can take a fast train to Paris.
