Most of the serious renovation work has been completed on this delightful rural property. It is being sold, as is, with the new owner completing the project. It is habitable immediately, with a bedroom and ensuite upstairs and a fitted kitchen/living room on the ground floor. Plenty of potential.
Normandy continues to be a favourite destination for British buyers, with its low prices, glorious unspoiled countryside and its proximity to the UK. This detached house is built in the typical local style, with random stone walls under a heavy, red, tiled roof. It sits in a rural spot, at the end of a cul-de-sac, about 10kms from the medieval town of Domfront. Domfront is a little jewel, with half-timbered houses, pretty squares, cobbled streets, and ramparts and fortifications which reveal its embattled history. There are excellent shops, lovely bars and restaurants, and a huge variety of sports to enjoy.
As we have indicated, there is still work to complete in the house. The good news is that there are new double-glazed windows in burgundy aluminium, the insulation and interior partition walls are in place, and the electrical installation has been brought up to date. There is a fitted kitchen, broadband internet connection, mains water, telephone, electricity and drainage to a 3000 litre septic tank. Heating is provided by a pellet burner.
At the moment there is just one bedroom and a bathroom on the first floor and so work will be needed to add more bedrooms. In total, the area of the house is 193.43m² but at present only about 50m² could be described as habitable.
Local services can be found at St Mars d’Egrenne (2kms), where there is a butcher, baker, general store, restaurant, hairdresser, garage and school. It is just 90 minutes from the ferry port of Caen and just a little further from the ports at Cherbourg, St Malo and Le Havre. The nearest pretty beach is at Granville (1 hour 15 minutes).
