Spacious village house to renovate with small courtyard

The property  is in the centre of the village and was formerly a plumbing and appliances shop. Between 1999 and 2010 it was used as offices, and then was used as a local headquarters for a Charitable orgainisation. There is potential to create a spacious family home, a house and gîte or appartments, offices or shop or a workshop.  At the moment there is no bathroom, just a WC on the ground floor.  There is a small hot water cylinder on the first floor. The ground floor was professionally re-wired in 2000. The windows and doors will need to be changed as will plasterboarding and insulation.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the potential of the property.

The house is conveniently situated in a village with a small supermarket, Post Office, bar/restaurant, hairdressers, elementary school, a nurse and a garage with petrol/diesel and car sales. It is situated between Saint Hilaire du Harcouët (10 km) with all amenities and Mortain (10 km). The closest airports to the property are at Rennes (81 km),  Dinard  (83 km) and  Deauville (118 km). The  UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is 50 km away.  Within a forty minute drive there are several large Towns – Fougères, Vire-Normandie, Flers, Avranches and Mayenne.  Saint-Lô and Laval are 1 hour away.  The ferry port of Caen-Ouistreham is 1 1/4 hours away, St Malo is 1 1/2 hours away and Cherbourg is 2 hours.  Calais and the Euro Tunnel are approximately a 5 hour drive.
