Full description:

This beautifully renovated Normandy farmhouse comes with a large barn, 4 acres of land, several other outbuildings and the most wonderful views. Shops, ferry port and the coast are all within easy reach.

The current owners have, over a period of years, restored the house. Many of the original features have been kept and the resulting renovation work manages to strike the perfect balance between the traditional and the contemporary.

The house spans three levels and has kitchen/dining room, 2 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, one of which could be used as a third bedroom, 2 bathrooms and a laundry room.

The large barn is currently used for storage/workshop and garden equipment, with the top floor being used for table tennis.

There is approximately 155m2 of habitable space and the layout of the property is as follows:

Ground floor:
Living room with original fireplace and wood-burner (6 x 6m)
Bathroom (2.5 x 2.2m)
Bedroom 1 (4.5 x 4m)
Laundry room (2.2 x 2m)

First floor:
Kitchen/dining room with wood burner (6 x 5m)
Living room/3rd bedroom (6 x 5m)
Wardrobe storage space (3 x 1.4m)

Second floor:
Bedroom 2 (4.5 x 3.5m)
Bathroom (4.5 x 2.3m)

There are approximately 4 acres of land made up of pasture, lawned garden, fruit trees and a vegetable plot. A flowing stream forms one of the boundaries of the property, and the water supply to the house comes from a natural spring.

The property comes with four additional outbuildings, the main one being the large barn, which is opposite the main house. This is currently used for storage but, subject to the relevant planning permissions, could be converted into guest accommodation. There are two large ground floor rooms and an open garage space with a split-level first floor area throughout.

The property is located amongst the rustic Normandy countryside in a hamlet called Le Mesnil Tôve. Basic shops and services can be found in nearby Juvigny-le-Tertre. The scenic town of Mortain is within easy reach and you can find a good selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and a weekly market.

The property offers easy access to the UK. Paris can be reached via a direct train link from Vire (a 20 minute drive from the property). London and the rest of the UK can be easily accessed via Eurostar, the Channel Tunnel and ferry ports including Calais, Le Havre, Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo. The airports of Paris, Dinard and Deauville, are all accessible.

About La Residence, Oxford

Bienvenue à La Résidence – the French property people.

Whatever your budget, wherever in France you want to buy, you’re now in touch with the experts. We’ve been selling houses in France for more than 25 years – in Normandy, Brittany, the Pas-de-Calais, the Vendée, Poitou-Charentes, the Limousin, Aquitaine, Burgundy, the Languedoc-Roussillon, the Midi-Pyrénées and Provence. We also offer a Paris apartment service.

Our UK-based team, with decades of professional estate agency experience between them, know the French property scene intimately. You’ll find their enthusiasm for France and the French way of life infectious. All of our colleagues in the field are entirely bilingual and chosen for their experience and outstanding levels of service. From the moment you first contact La Residence, you’ll find that we’re dedicated to ensuring that you find the right house, at the right price, in just the right spot – and with the minimum of fuss.
On our site, we showcase a wide range of French property – from barns to manor houses, from cottages to châteaux, from B & B’s to gîte complexes and hotels and from fishing lakes to country estates.
By the way, you’ll find that some agencies ask you to pay an up-front fee or make extra commission charges or to pay for the services which we provide as standard, such as help with setting up a bank account, advice on the best foreign exchange rates, transferring the utilities at the new house into your name and so on. When you place yourself in our hands you can be assured that there are no hidden extra charges. The price you pay is not one Euro more than you’d pay if you approached a French agency directly.

Stephen Hilton heads up the Oxford-based firm. He was formerly a member of the British Diplomatic Service. Following a successful career which included a number of overseas postings and culminated in his appointment in the Foreign Office as First Secretary with responsibility for Anglo/French relations, Stephen joined the family property business as a Partner. It was from this base that La Résidence was founded in 1985. Since that time, the firm has gone from strength to strength and La Résidence is now widely regarded as one of the most respected French property companies in the UK whose opinions are regularly canvassed by property correspondents commenting on the French market.

Having himself owned a house in France for many years, he has much personal experience to add to his professional expertise. Together with his French colleagues, he has successfully arranged and overseen many hundreds of transactions, and it is now rare for him to come across any situation not previously encountered.

We are based in Oxford and welcome personal visitors. If you’d like to discuss your plans face-to-face, please call us for an appointment. We’d be delighted to help to make your dreams come true.
