This beautiful 18th Century farmhouse has 4 bedrooms, comes with nearly 2 acres of land and a heated swimming pool. There are no near neighbours and there are panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. The property is within easy reach of the bustling town of Vire.
This delightful property is believed to have been built in about 1800 and offers plenty of original features including a granite fireplace. It had a major refurbishment programme in 2008 with works undertaken by registered French Artisans. It now offers comfortable family living accommodation with light rooms and high ceilings. There is further potential to re-develop the Games Room or even to renovate the barn into additional accommodation, subject to planning permission. At the moment the property is a holiday rental and has been consistently rented out over the last 20 years for about 20 weeks per year. The weekly rental is approximately 2,000€.
The house is in a private and peaceful position with the nearest neighbour about 1/2 km away. There are 360° views over the surrounding countryside and the farmhouse is surrounded by its own land. There is a wood close by which is criss-crossed by small streams and is a haven for wildlife. There are two villages close by, both 2 miles away (in different directions). The bustling town of Vire is about 6 miles away. Here you’ll find a great selection of restaurants, shops, theatre, cinema, weekly market etc. There is also a direct train line to Paris.
The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18 hole golf course are within 10 minutes drive as is the Saint Sever forest. It is situated in the southwest of Normandy, near the borders of Manche and Calvados. 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.
