Close to all facilities in Sourdeval, just 20 minutes from the direct rail connection with Paris in Vire.
The property is situated in a beautiful river valley, in the heart of the Normandy bocage. Despite its calm, out of the way setting, the house is in fact no more than a 5-minute drive from the quaint market town of Sourdeval. It is 75 minutes from the ferry port at Ouistreham, and 20 minutes from the fast rail link to Paris at Vire, making day trips to the capital a reality. All modern conveniences are to be found in Vire, including several major supermarkets, shops and good quality restaurants. The world famous Mont-Saint-Michel is 45 minutes away, as are the beautiful sandy Atlantic beaches between the Mont and Granville to the north. The River Sée, which is famous for its salmon fishing, runs close by, and the nearest access point to the long distance footpath, bridleway and cycle track linking Vire to the Mont-Saint-Michel is a 5-minute drive away. An 18-hole golf course is 15 minutes away, alongside Lake Dathée, with its nature reserve, footpaths and water sports centre. Fibre optic cables will deliver a super-fast internet connection to the property from early 2016.
The cottage is approached from a single track lane which climbs up the valley side. It is enclosed by its own grounds, which extend up and down the sloping sight, giving wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. A small wood provides timber for the log burner, and natural spring water is piped down to the house.
The main house is constructed of stone, with a natural slate roof. It has two staircases, one at each end of the property, which allows the creation of two separate living spaces if required. There is a separate double garage and an outbuilding which is divided into a utility room, workshop, office and store room.
The house has oil fired central heating and hot water, numerous exposed beams, and consists of a kitchen, living room with a large granite fireplace and a wood burner, dining room, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
