Full description:

Cottage, 38m2, 1 bedroom, land 4190m2, attached and detached barns and outbuildings. Renovated, single storey cottage with lovely views over the Sée valley. Large barn attached, suitable for conversion to habitable accommodation. Just 5 minutes' drive from Sourdeval.
The property is 75 minutes from the ferry port at Ouistreham, and 15 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 an hour away, as are the beautiful sandy Atlantic beaches between the Mont and Granville to the north. The River Sée, famous for its salmon fishing, is 5 minutes away, and the nearest access point to the long distance footpath and cycle track linking Vire to the Mont-Saint-Michel is just a few yards up the road. An 18-hole golf course is 15 minutes away, alongside Lake Dathée, with its nature reserve, footpaths and water sports centre.
The property is approached from a short driveway off a no through road. It sits centrally in its grounds, which are mainly laid to grass. It is positioned halfway up the northern side of the Sée valley, resulting in quite lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
The cottage and attached barn are a simple rectangle in plan. The external walls are of stone, with granite lintels and sills, and roofing of corrugated iron sheeting. The detached barn and outbuildings are constructed of the same material.
The property is heated by a wood burner in the living room, with additional electric radiators. The large window in the living room is double glazed. The current habitable space is divided between the living/dining room, the bedroom and the bathroom, all on the ground floor.
The external door leads directly into the
living/dining room (5.8m X 3.9m). Concrete floor, large granite fireplace with wood burner. Double window to the rear. Fitted kitchen corner with wall cupboards and worktops. Access to the
bedroom (3.1m x 2.6m). Concrete floor, window to front.
bathroom (3.1m x 2.7m). Shower, WC, wash basin, small window to rear.
From the outside, access is gained to the
attached barn (7.7m x 5.4m). A very large space which, once converted, could provide an additional 100m2 of habitable accommodation. Attached to the barn is a
lean-to shed currently used as a workshop.
At the top of the grounds there are further stone outbuildings which, whilst serviceable, are in need of some repair work. According to a carving on one of them, they date from the 18th century.
The outstanding advantage of this property is undoubtedly its setting, deep in the heart of the Normandy countryside, yet no distance at all from the modern world when needed.
