Property Description

This detached country house with spacious accommodation, character features and several outbuildings in immaculate condition is set on a lrge plot of over 7000 sq.m and located in the Manche area of Normandy. The house is situated between  Le Teilleul (6 km) - it has 2 banks, 2 boulangeries, butcher, supermarket, restaurants and bars, and a good, although small, weekly market and Notre-Dame-du-Touchet with bar/restaurant, hairdresser, bakery and grocery store.

This lovely detached country house is set in a quiet position with no neighbours, at the end of a long drive.  It benefits from immaculate gardens of just under 2 acres with a spring fed pond, ornamental pond and many mature trees and shrubs.  There are several outbuildings in immaculate condition which would be of particular interest to a car collector, someone working from home or as possible renovation projects to create a gîte complex or for multigenerational accommodation.  There is a separate detached house ready for renovation.
