Detached house with gîte potential and over 6 acres with no neighbours

This family house requires renovation and could become a substantial family house with attached gîte or annexe.  The current owner had a logburner in the kitchen fitted with a flue and a new electrical consumer unit installed and some re-wiring done.  There are large outbuildings, both attached to the rear of the house and detached.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near a village 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 Manche 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).  The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is 1 hour and 43 minutes drive and Cherbourg is 2 hours and 25 minutes.
