4 bedroom cottage for sale, Manche, Normandy
With far-reaching views over the surrounding Normandy countryside, this very pretty detached, stone-built thatched cottage would be equally suitable as a permanent residence as a holiday home. The cottage has 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom with space for another, and a large beamed reception room with granite fireplace.
The property has been well maintained and has had a number of improvements within the last few years. The thatched roof has been overhauled with a new ridge, chimney flashing and weatherproofing in 2017. The gas central heating boiler was replaced about 6 years ago and the property benefits from double-glazed windows, with new shutters installed in 2007/8. There is also a modern fitted kitchen and bathroom. Tin the grounds is a detached, thatched studio which would be suitable for the creation of a small gite, subject to Planning..
