This is an impressive home well situated in the town. It is used by the current owners as a spacious family home with a small rental income generated from letting out the garden level annex as a B&B. The property offers a good deal of flexibility and could be configured a number of ways by new owners with different requirements.

Ground Floor.
Entry into a good-sized hallway, cloakroom with WC and hand basin to your left and the roomy, light, fully-fitted kitchen to your right. Straight ahead is the spacious living/dining room with insert wood burning stove and gorgeous rear views over the garden and surrounding countryside.

From the hallway, an original hardwood staircase leads to the upper floors.

First Floor.

Off the landing with solid wood flooring, there are three double bedrooms and a separate bathroom with fitted units, basin, bath and separate shower cubicle. There is also a separate WC with wash-hand basin. Two of the bedrooms on this level benefit from the beautiful views and a westerly aspect.

Second Floor.
Here there are two more bedrooms, one a large double with plenty of built in storage and an en-suite shower room, with shower and wash basin. The second is a smaller bedroom with a sink, ideal for a child or for use as a hobby room or home office. There is a large eaves storage space, which is above the first floor bathroom and has potential for development. The access hatch for the attic is also reached from the small landing on this level.

Lower Ground Floor.
Here we find a large boiler room, utility area and cave (plenty of room for all those bottles of wine) as well as the one bedroomed annex. This can be accessed independently from the main house by a half-glazed door directly from the driveway. The annex comprises of a fitted kitchen area with built-in appliances and plenty of storage. There is a separate shower room with WC as well as the spacious double bedroom.

An archway from the kitchen opens into the conservatory. This large area comprises the width of the house, taking advantage of the magnificent views. The south-westerly aspect and makes a very good-sized living room space. The conservatory opens to a paved rear patio, a real sun trap, and the gardens beyond.

The house is double glazed throughout and benefits from oil fired central heating. There are shutters on the majority of windows.

To the front of the house is a small lawn with a paved path leading to the front door, which sets the property back from the street. It is separated from the pavement by traditional, white-painted wrought-iron railings with a pedestrian gate and double gates accessing the driveway.
The driveway slopes down to the lower ground floor level and leads to …
A garage and workshop. The garage has a pedestrian door as well as an up-and-over door. It offers ample space a car as well as storage for firewood and gardening equipment, bicycles, etc.

A side pedestrian door from the garage leads onto the sheltered and sunny patio outside the conservatory. From here there is a sloping garden which is laid mostly to lawn with planted borders. Tucked away behind the garage is a useful wood store and a small abris de tomates. At the bottom of this lawned area is a strawberry bed and small vegetable plot before a set of steps leading down to the next area of garden. This is a large level-ish area, exceptionally sheltered and private. The current owners keep chickens here. There is scope to turn into an adventure area for children or a larger vegetable garden or outside kitchen and BBQ area. Beyond this and through a gateway the garden opens out into a wooded area with three large ponds. This area provides a peaceful haven for both the owners and wildlife alike. The garden really has to be seen to be appreciated and offers massive potential for those with green-fingers or those who a good bit of land in a town environment. This is an excellent sized garden for a town property.

This well-presented, semi-detached house is habitable immediately and offers bags of space and scope in a superb location.

Mortain is a small town with a vibrant heart under its sleepy exterior. There is lively weekly market as well as having two supermarkets on its outskirts. The community is active with regular cultural events. It has a library, small cinema, a wide variety of sports and leisure clubs. The popular outdoor swimming pool is open between May and September and the swimming pool gardens host free music concerts in the summer. The town is particularly popular with visitors who have an interest in outdoor activities. It is a hub for climbers, hikers and cyclists. The current owners are running a successful B&B, with cycle tourists following the Velo Scenic, which runs from Paris to Mont Saint Michel.
Lovely house, great location, viewing essential.
