This is a delightful property in a hamlet, on a secluded south facing plot overlooking a vale towards the town of Vire, and within 45 minutes drive from the ferry port of Ouistreham. Hence it works as a residence or holiday home, being readily accessible for weekend visits - also easy to get to from Cherbourg or Le Havre for example. It is a stone-built house with a conservatory added just a few years ago, with good water and electricity supply and a very efficient (new) water heater. The loft space is extensive and has not yet been converted, and the first floor comprises two main bedrooms plus a third on the mezzanine. It also has a shower room and toilet. The ground floor has an extensive stairwell with doors to the outside and a toilet plus separate bathroom with washing machine and tumble drier. A short corridor leads to a compact kitchen opposite a dining room and then the main lounge, all with wooden beams. The lounge has a large fireplace with a wood burning stove presently in place. There are electric wall heaters in most of the rooms. The original front door leads to the conservatory which has 3 sets of doors and can be aired easily while also being light and cosy. The house opens onto a paddock and to the east is a large field which has been left to grow naturally with the addition of a few bamboo stands. It retains the remnants of a chicken shack and rabbit cages half way along the south perimeter, and some stone ruins. The main garden area comprises a small orchard to the east, with a well adjacent to the field, a large barn with two lockable store rooms and ready to house animals (sheep were there when purchased in 2003). To the west, the long driveway - newly resurfaced in 2017 - leads to a wooden garage capable of housing 3 cars, presently used mainly as a tool shed and store. Tucked behind this is an old but good 3 berth caravan which comes with the property - it has not been moved for years! While it is a comfortably liveable house, there are always projects to keep the owner occupied! The (perfectly good) septic tank needs repositioning due to updated regulations. I have been quoted 7000 euros for a new one to be installed. I would like to leave most of the tools and furniture including large screen tv as part of the sale. The owner should be ready for lots of garden work including tree trimming/felling! There is a powerful lawn mower included. I used to employ someone to manage the grounds but he broke the ride-on and since then I have tried to visit often enough to keep the main grassy areas including driveway in a manageable state. I have considered renting the property (but divorce is sadly forcing sale), for which it is recommended that the addition of double glazing and upgraded heaters will be of benefit, and extension of the stove flue to reach the chimney top is required for residential lets. The local mayor has agreed that if desired, a log cabin can be added on the grounds.....when I was considering offering English courses and/or guest accommodation on site. This is a region of France where many locals will try to speak English even if you are trying to speak French! Hence it is easy to communicate. Vire and other local towns and villages offer all that is needed including library, hospital, theatre, cinema and specialist shops. Just a kilometre from the house is a British War Cemetery, which is well maintained and provides a moving experience. Close to the nearby village of Beny Bocage is the first bunjy jumping site in Europe and there are many other tourist sites around and numerous activities offered through the year, while the Normandy beaches and Bayeux for example, are all within easy reach. Local 'council' taxes amount to less than 1,000 euros per year, and include tv licence fee. This house is being offered at £120,000 and notaire (conveyancing solicitor) fees will need to be added - probably around five thousand euros. I shall be happy to accompany prospective buyers to view, using the Portsmouth - Ouistreham route which with Brittany Ferries (I am a member of their 'Club Voyage') can cost as little as £35 return each to take a car for a 'day trip', which would actually necessitate an overnight stay - either at the property or in an hotel. Please do contact me with any questions. Chris
