Property Description

This delightful property is believed to have been built in about 1800 and offers character features including a granite fireplace.  It had a major refurbishment programme in 2007-8 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 an enviable position with the nearest neighbour about 1/2 km away.  There are 360° views over the surrounding countryside and the large, old farmhouse sits on its own and surrounded by its own land.  There is a wood close by which is criss-crossed by small streams and is a haven for wildlife.  However, 2 miles in either direction will bring you to 2 well-appointed villages. It is just 6 miles to the bustling town of Vire with its wealth of restaurants, shops, theatre, cinema, weekly market etc. and direct train line to Paris.
