This house was a self build completed to a very high specification in 2015. There is a large garden, mainly laid to lawn, with access from the hall, lounge and pedestrian garage door. There is also a further garden at a higher level, also laid to lawn, accessed from the lower garden. It is situated in a very pleasant semi-rural area with pleasant outlooks and the village is a mix of local French people and some English families. There is very easy access to Falaise, approximately 9 km away and other small villages, Trun, St Pierre sur Dive, only a short drive away too. The main ferry port is Caen/Ouistreham which is approximately a 45 minute drive from the property making it very accessible from the UK. Caen, Herouville and Mondeville are large shopping complexes and again only approximately a 30-45 minute drive from the house. It is possible to go to a seaside/beach, of which there are several within 1.00-1.30hrs drive, including the famous WWII Normandy beaches. There are also some very picturesque villages, again within a short drive from the property. Falaise has the castle of William the Conqueror that hold many events throughout the year, that are well worth a visit. Ideal home for a holiday retreat, or a peaceful permanent setting away from bustling towns, or working from home.
There is also the possibility of purchasing further land adjacent to the house that currently has a small orchard in it and road access.

The stairs lead up from the sitting room to the hall/landing on the first floor. There is a large airing cupboard housing a hot water cylinder and shower pump and shelved linen storage. This is a large landing currently used as an informal office. Leading off the landing is the master bedroom that has 2 built in wardrobes. There is a large en suite to the master bedroom fitted with a P shaped bath with shower over, a vanity unit with a circular wash hand basin, 3 drawers and a marble top and w.c. This room is fully tiled including the floor. There is room for a further full height storage cupboard, linen bin, chair etc. On the opposite of the landing is the second bedroom also fitted with a wardrobe or storage cupboard. This also has an en suite fitted with a large corner shower, vanity unit with a circular wash hand basin with a 2 door cupboard beneath and 2 small drawers to the side and w.c. There is room for a fitted wall cupboard behind the door and space for a chair. There are TV points in the sitting room and the master bedroom.

The house also benefits from a central vacuum system, and air recirculation system. In the large garden there is a fosse septique tank fitted, and drainage already installed should a mains drainage system be installed in the village. A 3,000 litre rain water harvesting tank is also situated underground to the side of the property. The outbuilding, which is of block construction with a tiled roof, has electricity installed and lighting and houses the oil tank for the central heating. There is external lighting round the house.
The reason for the sale of the house is that due to age and ill health, I am returning to the UK to be with family.
