Delightful Equestrian property with no neighbours in 5 acres with stabling, riding arena and large barns
This lovely stone house sits in an enviable position surrounded by its own land, with no neighbours. The property was re-roofed in 2010 and has had new pvc windows and doors, 2 new woodburners, and has been re-pointed. It is immaculately presented and has light and airy accommodation with the benefit of a downstairs en-suite bedroom with independent access if required. There is stabling, riding arena and paddocks with a huge barn to the rear of the stables which would lend itself to further stabling or even for a classic car collection! The barn nearest the house offers potential to create a gîte if required and subject to planning. Viewing is highly recommended.
The property is situated near a village with a bar/restaurant/shop, hairdresser and garage and is not far from Passais Villages with local shops (3km) Le Teilleul (5km) with a small supermarket, boulangerie, chemist, butcher and other shops, schools and doctor’s surgery. A local small market is held on Thursdays. The property is in the Orne area of Normandy. The closest airport is at Rennes (82 km) with Dinard Airport (88 km), Angers Airport (118 km), or Deauville Airport (118 km). The medieval town of Domfront and St Hilaire du Harcouët with all amenities are only a short distance away. The famous fortified church and UNESCO heritage site, MONT ST MICHEL, is only 40 minutes away and the port of ST. MALO a bit further along the coast. It is 1 hour 12 minutes drive from Saint-Lo (45 miles); 1 hour 19 minutes drive from Laval (45 miles) and 2 hours 38 minutes drive from Nantes (137 miles).
