Renovated old bakery with stunning views and approximately 1 acre of land

This house has been completely renovated over the last 8 years by the present owners.  It offers attractive, light open plan accommodation on the ground floor and the trifold glazed doors in the dining room open onto a terrace with superb views over surrounding fields.  There is one neighbour with whom the owners have an informal arrangement to allow his sheep onto their land to maintain it.  He is willing to continue this arrangement if required.  The property has been let as a holiday cottage but would also lend itself to full time use.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near the picturesque town of St Hilaire du Harcouët with 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. It has a small hospital with an A&E department.  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. 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. Local attractions include Mont Saint Michel, Fougères Castle, the D-Day Landing Beaches, Bayeux and even Le Mans for the racing!  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 (30 minutes away) with regular trains to Paris taking about 2 hours and 35 minutes.
