Message From The Seller

The full length of the land needs to be seen to be appreciated, it extends way beyond what is shown.   I would emphasise the well in the center of the courtyard, the host of fruit and nut trees in the courtyard, garden and drovers’ path out to the grazing. The site is full of history and character. Although the courtyard and land are full of character, the 1970’s house is “practique” – that is why I bought it, and I think it is true. The house may not be a historically character building but it is a practical French type – ideal if you want to work on the land, etc.. When I bought it the basement was full of gardening and farming tools and boxes for storing home grown vegetables in, racks full of wine, and some cider barrels. It would be handy when finished working outside to walk straight into the basement from the garden or land, wash your hands at the sink, leave your wellies, and go up to the house on the internal stairs. On a practical basis the courtyard is solid and a good place for a variety of purposes from parking to taking animals in and out, receiving deliveries of hay, etc., and for equestrian purposes the adjacent road and courtyard are perfect for going to and from events in a horsebox.  I have contact details for a local farmer who will make hay from the rented field, and for a cider company to process the apples in the orchard.

1970’s bungalow with several outbuildings and just under 6 acres

The property is in a quiet rural position with no immediate neighbours.  The old stone house and attached dairy offers potential for re-development or for stabling, storage, etc. The bungalow is built over a full basement and benefits from double glazed windows with electric shutters and light accommodation.  It does however need modernisation. The current owner has a rental agreement for a further hectare of grazing which adjoins the land which may be transferable to a new purchaser.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is near a small village located in the north west of France in the department of Mayenne of the french region Pays de la Loire. It is close to the Brittany, Normandy and Loire borders. It is a lovely small French village just one hour’s drive away from the stunning UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint-Michel. Further amenities can be found at Gorron (5.5km). The medieval Château of Fougères is only 30 minutes away and the interesting city of RENNES is an hour’s drive away with its airport and mainline train station.
