Message From The Seller

The property is ideally located for quick and easy travel to the U.K. It is very private with a majority of the borders being surrounded by hedging and within walking distance from the wonderful historic park of ‘La Chapelle Notre Dame de la Délivrance’.  The house is spacious and cozy with many rooms on three floors, all with great potential.  It has a great feel to it making it very easy to relax in, with a workshop and an office providing ample working space for business and projects.

Detached house with outbuildings in 3/4 acre garden in rural position in Brittany

This property needs some TLC to restore it to its former glory – both inside (to finish the renovations) and outside as it is very overgrown.  It is at the end of a long lane which is a no through road and surrounded by its own garden and fields.  There are several useful outbuildings which could be re-purposed for someone wishing to work from home or as a gîte or two.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this property and its surroundings.

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 within a one and a 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 is a short walk away and has a shop/bar/restaurant.  Further more extensive facilities can be found at the Medieval town of Fougères which is a 20 minute drive.
