In the midst of very beautiful country and with extensive views, this cosy, stone-built cottage has been fully renovated, including a compliant septic tank, and comes with a second, detached cottage with full Planning Consent for conversion to a 2 bedroom home. The grounds measure over a quarter of an acre.

The existing cottage has been completely renovated to a high standard and was formerly an old bakery. There is further potential to convert the large detached stone house which has approximately 90m² of ground floor surface area for which there is planning permission to convert into a superb house with two en suite bedrooms.   The all water septic tank is up to current regulations and is large enough to service both properties once the conversion has been carried out. The property is quietly situated at the end of a “no through” road with just one neighbour.

The property is a 5 kms from Sourdeval, the nearest town. Only a few minutes’ drive away, the town offers every amenity including two banks and supermarkets and there is a Farmers’ Market day every Tuesday.  The beaches on the west coast are an hour’s drive away and Sourdeval is approximately 80 minutes’ drive from the ferry port of Caen and an hour and forty minutes from Cherbourg. The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18-hole golf course are within 15 minutes’ drive,  as is the Saint Sever Forest.
