If you've ever dreamed of packing up and moving to France, to a truly authentic region, full of history and natural beauty then you'll want to know about this house. Not just a house actually, a former presbytery, dating back to the 18th century and beautifully restored to create a 4 bedroom/4 bathroom home, with room for more on the top floor.
The house is in the Cotentin, a protected area of outstanding natural beauty. The subtle grey stone of the building is typical of the region and will look wonderful with roses climbing up the walls and over the gate. Within walking distance to the sea, the house is near St Mère de l'Eglise, made famous during the D-Day landings.
The person who acquires this lovely property will be starting with a clean palette, as inside everything has been very tastefully restored without changing the essential character. I love the double opening doors, the huge fireplaces and the soft tones of the walls and floors.
The outbuildings give that essential French feel to the property and will prove useful for creating summer rooms or storing garden furniture. The property lies within easy reach of Paris by train, and close to the port of Cherbourg, making it ideal for anyone thinking of creating a B&B.
The garden is perfect because it's not too big an area to handle, but being surrounded by green fields there's the feeling of size. I can see this laid out in a potager and parterre, complimenting the strict façade of the house. The land is rich here, trees and garden grown well, and the property could go from beautiful to stunning in quite a short time.
