Message from the seller:

“The property’s situated in a peaceful setting in a quiet hamlet about a mile outside the village.  It’s conveniently situated about 10 mins from the A84, giving access to Caen – also for our motorhome to venture further afield.  We’ve been very fortunate to have really friendly and helpful neighbours, 2 of whom speak fluent English – you couldn’t wish for nicer neighbours.

The grandchildren love coming here as the zoo at Champrepus is a 5 minute drive and we’re only 25 minutes from the beaches.  There’s plenty to do here, but equally you can just relax in the garden and listen to the birds!

The property’s been sympathetically renovated to retain a lot of original features using traditional lime mortar.  The whole building has been rendered internally before the insulation was put in.  It offers comfortable living, with low energy bills.

We believe the main house, together with the boulangerie at the top of the garden would offer good business potential for running a gite or Air B&B.  The boulangerie hasn’t been renovated but there is an independent water supply there and it has been registered at the Maire’s office and Building Control for renovation at a later stage.”
