Stone house to renovate with large barn and quarter acre garden near Sourdeval in Normandy.
This attractive detached stone house is on the outskirts of Sourdeval and requires modernisation. The slate roof was replaced about 30 years ago and the septic tank was installed in about the year 2000. An electric wall mounted boiler was installed 2 – 3 years ago to provide central heating. There is ample room on the first floor (currently loft space) to create at least 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the potential.
It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados, approximately 3.5 km from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday morning, as is the livestock market. The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s 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.
