Property Description

This characterful detached stone house set in over an acre of garden with outbuildings is in a quiet rural hamlet near Sourdeval, (Manche), in Normandy. The house is situated a few kilometers from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets. Market day is held every Tuesday. 

The photos do not do justice to this stunning Normandy longère; there is loads of character with exposed stone walls, granite fireplaces and beams, not to mention the huge beams.  The accommodation has been sympathetically renovated to create a charming family home which stands in the middle of its plot of over 1 acre at the end of a quiet country lane with only 2 other properties.  There are super views from the front of the house.  There is potential to extend the living space into the large barn to the rear of the house and create a separate dwelling, subject to planning, in the large stone barn.
