Pretty detached stone village house with attached barns (offering room to extend the accommodation) and enclosed garden. Ideal holiday home or first time buy.

The property benefits from double glazed windows most of which have shutters, mains drainage and a convenient location.  Most of the renovation works have been carried out over the last 12 years including new floors, a roof overhaul, plumbing, electricity, loft conversion and a new kitchen and shower room.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a small village 4kms from the town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët and just over 1 hour from Saint Malo and the ferry port. St Hilaire du Harcouët has one of the biggest markets in the area on a Wednesday morning which takes over most of the town centre. The town has all amenities including some great restaurants, bars, and cafes. It also has a park with two adjoining lakes and a childrens’ playground. There is an indoor pool with a spa and a water slide. Crazy golf is available with clubs and balls for hire from a nearby bar. Fishing and horse-riding are within easy reach.  The town of Mortain 20 minutes away offers a great outdoor pool, stunning scenery and beautiful waterfalls.  It is 3 minutes away  from the Normandy/Brittany border and is set in the countryside.  It is within easy access of the main ferry ports, Cherbourg, Ouistreham (Caen), and St Malo (at most 1.5 hours drive) and Le Havre (about 2.5 hours).  The nearest mainline train station is at Vire or Avranches (30 minutes away) with regular trains to Paris taking about 2 hours and 35 minutes.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is about 45 minutes away by car.
