Delightful Mill House with river frontage and island in idyllic setting

The Mill was originally used as a grain mill with 3 wheels, believed to have been built in 1808.  It has belonged to the current owners for nearly 50 years.  They have profited from the superb environment for many family gatherings.  The Mill would now benefit from renovation including the installation of drainage, upgrading of the roof, electrics, windows, heating, etc. if to be used for full time occupation.  At the moment there is one mezzanine bedroom but there is potential to create additional bedrooms and a bathroom over the Store Room (8.81 x 7.01m) which would eliminate the risk of occasional flooding in the lower ground floor and basement.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the potential of this stunning property and the rare opportunity it presents.

Local shopping facilities can be found at nearby Campeaux (1.5 kms) with Post Office, Bar, Butcher, Bakery and Grocery store or further afield at Torigini-sur-Vire (14 kms) and Vire (17 kms).  The nearest major cities are Saint Lô (25 kms), Bayeux (50 kms) and Caen (62 kms).  The local junior school is at Campeaux and senior school is at Le Bény Bocage (5 kms).  Hospitals are at Vire and Caen.  The nearest airports are at Caen Carpiquet, Deauville (118 kms) and Dinan (127 kms).  The ferry ports of Caen Ouistreham (70 kms) and Cherbourg (100 kms) are easily accessible from the A84 Caen to Rennes motorway which is 5 minutes drive away.  The famous Viaduc de Soulevre, renowned for bungee jumping is 5 kms away for the house.  The UNESCO world heritage site of Mont St Michel is 75 kms and the Normandy landing beaches are about 60kms away.
