Normandy offers such great value for money. With 3 acres of land, purpose-built stabling, direct access to bridleways and extensive accommodation, this family home with income potential is causing a lot of interest. It is just one hour from the ferry port of Caen and 10 minutes from the local town.
This superb property is in a quiet rural hamlet on the outskirts of a village. It looks over well maintained gardens and the lovely balcony makes the most of views over surrounding fields. The house itself has been completely renovated to a high standard and retains many character features including exposed stone walls, beams and granite fireplaces. The accommodation is versatile and would lend itself to use for a B&B if required. The charming, attached gîte offers a useful income or could be used as an annexe. For equestrian enthusiasts there are 3 stables and a tack room/feed store area, hay barn and workshop. There is direct access to bridleways from the property which lead into the forest. An early viewing is highly recommended.
The house is situated in Southern Normandy, half way between the lively, medieval market town of Villedieu les Poêles, famous for its copper production and the historic town of Vire, renowned for its culinary delights. The nearest airport is Dinard – 1 hour away. The closest ferry port is at Caen Ouistreham (1 hour) and the Channel Tunnel at Calais is a drive of about 4 hours. The nearest village is within walking distance with a bar, bakery and small store for essentials. Saint Pois is slightly further away.
There are wider shopping facilities in Brécey, which is 10 minutes in the car. Here you will find the local supermarket – Super U - which also offers petrol/diesel facilities 24 hours a day. The town also has other shops, bars and restaurants including a pizzeria, bakeries, banks, schools and doctor’s surgery. It is 50 km from mystical Mont St Michel and its Bay and 40 km from Granville, with boats to the Channel islands. The house is also within easy reach of the D-day Landing Beaches. The forest of Saint Sever is within a 10 minute drive.
