Property Description

Country house with 4 bedrooms and over half an acre of landscaped gardens

The property has been renovated over the last 30 years by the present owners.  The roof and some roof timbers were replaced about 12 years ago.  There is a lovely farmhouse kitchen/dining area and plenty of storage space on the ground floor including a large walk in pantry/utility room and separate storeroom and workshop.  The workshop could easily be renovated to create a separate dining room or ground floor bedroom if required.  There is an attached 2 storey building which could be renovated to provide an annexe or gîte, subject to planning.  The gardens are beautiful and the house stands in the middle of the plot.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The house is accessible from any of the northern ports within 1-2 hours (St Malo, Cherbourg or Caen). It is a four hour journey from Calais if you prefer to come from that direction. The property is situated in a very peaceful rural setting, equidistant from Sourdeval, Vire and Tinchebray.  Tinchebray is a short 5 minute drive away where there are restaurants, bakery's, a lake and supermarket can be found. Several great beaches are easily reached within an hour including Granville.  There are several nearby disused railway tracks that are great for walks or cycling.
