2 bedroom property for sale, Manche, Normandy
Being sold fully furnished and with recently improved kitchen and bathrooms and a brand new septic tank, this very lovely 2 bedroom/2 bathroom detached longere with third acre garden is in a quiet position, enjoying extensive views over the valley of the River Vire. It is just 5 minutes from local shops and less than half an hour from the beach.
Having acquired it more than 10 years ago via La Residence, the British owners of this lovely house have now reluctantly decided that the time has come to part with it. They have recently upgraded the property with a new kitchen (including a new gas hob, electric oven and microwave and base and wall kitchen units), new bathrooms, partial underfloor heating and electric convection heaters, a new immersion heater, and a 10kW wood-burning stove which sits in a magnificent granite fireplace. The property will also be sold with a brand new septic tank system, fully compliant with the current drainage regulations.
This 3 bedroom detached Normandy longere is in a peaceful hamlet with breathtaking distant views over the Vire valley, and enjoys easy access to beaches, the countryside and shops. It is just one hour's drive from the ferry port of Caen and the Cherbourg ferry can be reached in about the same time.
The house is being sold fully furnished and included in sale are all of the white goods, furniture and furnishings with the exception of personal items such as pictures.
On the ground floor one very large room incorporates the fitted and equipped kitchen which has exposed beams. This is open-plan with the sitting/dining room which has a tiled floor with underfloor heating and an imposing granite fireplace with wood-burning stove. Also on the ground floor is the utility room with plumbed-in washing machine and dryer. There is also a WC and wash basin. On the first floor are 2 bedrooms and 2 shower rooms with WC, one of which is en suite. The property has wooden shutters. There is a third room which the owners currently use as a 3rd bedroom but it is small so perhaps more suitable as a study.
Outside: The plot measures 1360 m2 (0.34 acres), is surrounded by hedging and is safe for young children. There is a garden shed and a pergola. The house and gardens are South-facing with grass and mature fruit trees. Decking on the western side of the house provides a sunny area for outdoor meals and drinks. There is a gravel drive with plenty of space for car parking. The gardens are currently maintained by the immediate neighbour who is a professional gardener.
The UNESCO heritage site at Mont St Michel is 45 minutes by car. Utah Beach is 40 minutes to the East, and a picturesque series of uncrowded beaches on the West coast of the Cherbourg Peninsula are less than half an hour away via a direct road. Just 5 minutes away in Villebaudon is a boulangerie and a butcher as well as a restaurant while there are supermarkets and more comprehensive shopping at both Tessy-sur-Vire (3 miles), Hambye (4 miles) and Percy (4 miles). The historic town of Villedieu-les-Poeles is 9 miles to the South with ready access to the A84 motorway.
