Detached stone house with self-contained annexe, gîte and 6.5 acres

This spacious house has two large en-suite bedrooms and a self-contained annexe on the first floor with independent access.  On the ground floor there are three large main reception rooms.  There is a separate detached 2 bedroom gîte and various outbuildings including a garage and utility area.  It would lend itself to those looking for a home and income or multi-generational living.  If the self-contained annexe is not required you could have an additional 2 bedrooms (one en-suite) in the main house.  The land is to the rear of the property.  Viewing is highly recommended.

This property is a few minutes drive from the thriving town of Gorron, in the department known as the Mayenne which is part of the Pays de la Loire region.   Here you will find a Bank, Post Office, English style Butchers, English style tea room, Creperie, Boulangeries, Tattoo Parlour, Brocante, Supermarket, Restaurants, Bar Tabac’s, Garden Centre and Dog Kennels. For families, this town has a nursery school, primary school and college and lots of activities. As the children get older they are also able to access High schools nearby in the Mayenne. It is just across the border from Normandy and is a very popular area for many non-French nationals. It is perfectly placed insofar as it is not too far to the medieval city of Fougères, the major town of Mayenne and Laval.  It is 135km from the ferry port of Ouistreham, 181 km from Cherbourg, 295 km from Dieppe and 450 km from Calais.  The city of Rennes, a little under 90 minutes drive away, has a very good airport offering EasyJet flights to Gatwick.
