Stone farmhouse with barn and 5 acres of land

This house will require renovation and creation of bedrooms in the loft space to achieve its potential, and would be ideal for someone requiring storage or working from home.  There is one neighbour.  Possibility to purchase an additional Open-Fronted Barn and silos with extra land to make one and a half to two hectares in total.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated a 7 minute drive from Fougerolles du Plessis, where you will find an award winning boulangerie,  a post office, a bank, a supermarket with petrol station, 2 bars, a restaurant, a hairdresser and 2 brocante/second hand shops and a lake.

It has many good shops, cinema and ten pin bowling. Just outside the town is the Forest of Fougères, which has a large lake and beach. There is also horse riding in the Forest. The property has excellent transport links to the UK via the ferry ports at Calais – 4.5 hours, St Malo – 1.5 hours, Caen Ouistreham – 1 hour 5 minutes, Le Havre – 2.5 hours, Cherbourg – 2 hours.
