Under an hour from Caen, with ferry from service Portsmouth, are these 2 adjacent stone houses with mains water, electricity, a separate stone barn (12x4m) and a pretty rear garden. The roofs and buildings are in general good order and they could remain as 2 separate dwellings or become one large 4 bedroomed house.
One house is renovated with 2 bedrooms, upstairs WC, lounge with attractive fireplace, kitchen, shower room and an internal garage which could be developed into a kitchen/ diner.
The second house requires internal modernization. It has a lounge, kitchen, large bright bedroom, space for a large upstairs bathroom and a big attic with attractive beams and floor which will make another good bedroom.
The large barn has lovely original stone walls and already has an upstairs room which was previously used as a bedroom. It could easily be converted into a gite and offers good immediate storage.
The easily managed garden has fruit trees and many pretty spring flowering bulbs.
Transport is easy, being in the centre of a small village with good roads and just a mile from the new dual carriageway to the large town of Flers, 15 minutes away, with major supermarkets and services. A general stores, bakery and bar/restaurant are 4km away.
Available separately are a range of barns adjoining the garden and the owners’ large attractive former farmhouse with a further considerable potential gite complex (more photos on request). There are already 2 Gites de France in the village, should you wish to stay and explore the area.
To simplify the transaction we will use an English speaking Notaire, a local bank now has an English bank manager and one of the ladies at the village Mairie speaks good English.
(Although we prefer to keep the price low by selling privately, we would consider using local English estate agents, although this would add about 5,000 euros, which in France is payable by the buyer.)
