Delightful farmhouse in Brittany to finish modernising.  The property is full of character and will make a lovely family house.  There are superb gardens to the rear of the house and attached outbuildings.

The farmhouse would benefit from further renovation to fulfil its potential and complete the works that have already been started.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in Ille-et-Vilaine department near the Brittany/Normandy border.  It is in a quiet rural hamlet near Louvigné-du-Desert (8km) and Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët (12km).  The ferry ports of Caen Ouistreham and Saint Malo are all within a one and half hour drive. The Eurotunnel at Calais is a 4 and a half hour drive.   Airports are at Rennes (81km) and Dinard.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is about a 35 minute drive.  The village itself has a shop/bar/restaurant.  Further more extensive facilities can be found at the Medieval town of Fougères which is a 20 minute drive.
