Near Sourdeval. This 4-bedroom thatched cottage is full of character and could easily be divided to make a home and self contained gite or granny flat. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens with stunning views over the Vallee de la See, it also enjoys its own small area of natural woodland with frontage to the Sée, known for its salmon fishing. Internally there is a well-fitted kitchen, utility room and cloakroom/wc. The spacious living room has original beams, exposed stone walls and traditional granite fireplace housing the woodburner. Stairs from the living room lead to 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. The other half of the house (accessed from adjoining door in living room) is built over three levels. On the ground floor is a store room, a workshop and a hallway with spiral staircase to the wood panelled sitting room or study. This has an external door to the garden and stairway to the 2nd floor landing and another large bedroom with a handbasin, en-suite wc and glazed doors opening onto an ornamental balcony. Outside: The mature garden frames the house with a shelter-belt of mature trees and shrubs, and has a choice of seating areas to take advantage of the view. Three attractive timber-framed outbuildings with traditional tiled roofs are currently used as a carport, woodstore and poultry housing. The garden has direct access onto a bridlepath leading to the former railway track and a network of footpaths ideal for walkers and dog owners: this also leads to the separate parcel (2000m2) of natural woodland bordered by the river Sée. Sourdeval, a busy market town with a good range of shops and services is only a five minute drive. Lac de la Dathee, with its sailing club, 18 hole golf course, fishing and lakeside walks is about 15 minutes. The Normandy beaches can be reached in less than an hour by car and the car-ferries and Dinard airport are approx. 90minutes away.
