In the heart of the beautiful Normandy countryside you’ll find this period house dating back to 1844. In the past two years the house has been extensively and tastefully modernised to a high-standard by the current owners.
Situated within a 15 minute drive of St Lo, the capital of Manche, which has all the luxuries of modern day France. Including an abundance of shops, boutiques, supermarkets and restaurants, some the finest in the area. Squash courts and a newly opened swimming pool with indoor and outdoor pools makes this an ideal location to keep all members of the family entertained.
The property itself is nestled in a quaint hamlet consisting of a mixture of both English and French inhabitants. Tranquil surroundings in the midst of farmland and a beautiful chateau at the end of the road.
The house is set in the middle of a one and a quarter acre garden which includes all manner of fruit trees, several varieties of apples, damsons, cherries and pears. A newly constructed summerhouse with adjoining decking, sits alongside a large pond which is home to numerous carp. There is also a small patch of land suitable for keeping a donkey or other livestock such as chickens or goats.
The lounge benefits from an inglenook fireplace housing a super efficient wood-burning stove, this 25 sq metre room has newly fitted bi-fold wooden doors which open onto the garden.
Next door the dining room is 15.5 sq metres. This leads onto a downstairs bedroom 10 sq metres which has its own shower room and walk-in wardrobe. This room has access to the garden and would be suitable for an elderly or handicapped member of the family.
A former hayloft was converted in 2013, to form the master suite with comprises the bedroom of 15.5 sq metres, a walk-in dressing room and an en suite which includes both a shower and bath.
A large landing which could be used as either an office or occasional fourth bedroom leads to the third double bedroom 16 sq metres which has yet another en suite bathroom.
The house has been fully insulated, has double glazing throughout. All the electrics and plumbing are new, including a new hot water tank. The septic tank is the new variety (fosse toutes eaux) and was installed in 2013.
But the piece de resistance to this property has to be the new extension which was completed in August 2014, comprising of a 42 sq metre kitchen and utility room. The kitchen has integrated appliances, a full size fridge, oven, microwave/oven and coffee maker. Plus an instant hot water tap, no need for a kettle. Another set of bi-fold doors lead onto a patio and lawned area.
Herbaceous borders and planted beds contain shrubs, trees and a large selection of perennial plants any Chelsea gardner would be proud to show off.
All the hard work has been completed in this turnkey property for someone else to sit back, relax and enjoy this delightful residence as ill-health is forcing the sale of this beautiful home.
