Maison de Maître house to renovate with over 1 1/2 acres in Normandy with potential attached gîte.

This attractive detached house requires complete renovation.  The current owner has re-roofed the south elevation of the property but it will require new floors, windows, plumbing and electricity.  It stands in a quiet rural position with views over open countryside and its own land.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the potential.

The property is situated in the Manche in the Normandy region of France, near a small French village with a local store, small restaurant and Patisserie.  St Hilaire, Brécey and Mortain are all just 10-15 minutes drive away, and all have either indoor or open air swimming pools. A 20 minute drive will take you to the larger town of Avranches, and Le Mont St Michel and the beautiful beaches are just 30-45 minutes away. The nearest Airport is at  Dinard – 71km, and in the surrounding area are Rennes Airport (80 km), Deauville Airport (121 km), or St. Brieuc Airport (128 km).  The nearest Port is at Saint Malo 66km or  Caen Ouistreham – 75 miles.
