There’s no doubt that this large country house is in need of some modernisation but it has the potential to become a very special property. It was last renovated in 1979, which explains the wallpaper! There is over an acre of land, lovely views and several outbuildings.
The house stands in a quiet rural hamlet overlooking fields, 3.5km from the market town of Sourdeval. The town has an excellent bakery and a good range of shops and services. The weekly produce market is held on a Tuesday.
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 1h40mins from Cherbourg. A little further afield are the D-Day landing beaches and Le 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 beautiful Saint Sever forest.
