Rural stone house to finish converting, near Sourdeval 50150, 149m2. Land 226m2. Part of a tiny hamlet, nestling on the valley bottom in a riverside meadow. Salmon and trout fishing, with unrestricted access to 50 acres of privately maintained woodland and meadows. The property is situated in a beautiful river valley untouched by the modern world for over 200 years, in the heart of the Normandy bocage. It is 75 minutes from the ferry port at Ouistreham, and 20 minutes from the fast rail link to Paris at Vire, making day trips to the capital a reality. All modern conveniences are to be found in Vire, including several major supermarkets, shops and good quality restaurants. The world famous Mont-Saint-Michel is 45 minutes away, as are the beautiful sandy Atlantic beaches between the Mont and Granville to the north. The river, which is famous for its salmon fishing, runs close by, and the nearest access point to the long distance footpath, bridleway and cycle track linking Vire to the Mont-Saint-Michel is a 5 minute drive away. An 18-hole golf course is 15 minutes away, alongside Lake Dathee, with its nature reserve, footpaths and water sports centre. Fibre optic cables will deliver a super-fast internet connection from September 2015. The house is approached from a single track lane which zigzags its way down the valley side. It was fully renovated and converted for use as a restaurant and visitor centre in 2002. Mains electricity, telephone, water and sanitation are all in place. The ground floor has the original stone flags, and local oak has been used to great effect throughout. Ground floor is 86m2 and first floor is 63m2 of habitable space, with a further 23m2 in the attached single storey annexe. Once the new owners have decided how they would like the internal space to be divided, it will be relatively straightforward to convert the property back into a very comfortable, two storey family home. A firm of very reputable architects has produced ground plans and impressions of the finished building, which will be made available to interested parties. The same firm, if required, may be engaged at a very favourable rate to produce detailed plans and manage every aspect of the conversion. This is an unusual and exciting opportunity to create your new home. The hamlet in which the house is located consists of just 9 properties, 3 of which have already been restored. No new development will be allowed once the existing buildings have been renovated. The surrounding countryside will continue to be managed unobtrusively for the enjoyment of the residents, and with complete respect for this outstanding natural environment.
