This beautiful, detached country house comes with a studio, needing only a bathroom to make it a self-contained gîte, and grounds of just under an acre. The renovations have been carried out to a high standard. The beach at Granville is only 25 minutes' drive.

The property has been considerably improved, including new double glazed windows with shutters on the ground floor, rewiring, new bathrooms on the first floor, custom-built wardrobes to the master bedroom and a superb Mobalpa fitted kitchen.  There are still some finishing works to do to the property.  The house would be ideal for someone wishing to work from home in a studio or offices or to finish conversion of the triplex into a gîte.  The rooms are spacious and there is a delightful blend of character features and modern fittings.

Outside, double wrought iron gates lead to the gravel drive and parking area.  Paved patio with electric sun blind.  The garden is mainly lawn with established flower borders and shrubs and enclosed by mature trees.  Pond.  Separate Detached Barn (originally a dwelling) part open-fronted and with slate roof. Attached to the house is a wood store/shed.

The property is situated between the towns of Percy and Hambye.  The 2016 Tour de France will be passing the property!  Just over  ten minutes' drive from Villedieu-les-Poêles, the property is conveniently situated just off the main road from the ferries (A84) and an hour from the Caen ferry and less than 90 minutes from Cherbourg. Dieppe is about a 3 1/2 hour drive and Calais is about 4 1/2 hours drive.  The nearest airports are at Caen Carpiquet and Dinard. 

The nearest beach is at Granville which is a drive of 25 minutes and Mont Saint Michel, Bayeux and Avranches are all within an hour's drive.  The pretty market town of Percy  has a supermarket, many shops and numerous bars and restaurants and hosts a market on Saturdays selling fresh farm produce. The larger market town of Villedieu-les-Poêles, about 10 minutes' drive away, has an indoor public swimming pool and a large weekly market, selling everything from food to clothing.

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.
