Substantial Farmhouse with gîte and large garden

This property has a garden of just over an acre.  It comprises a detached stone house and separate stone gîte.  Both properties are in need of some TLC to restore them to their former glory.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near Le Teilleul, a village with a small supermarket, boulangerie, chemist, butcher and other shops, schools and doctor’s surgery. A local small market is held on Thursdays. The property is in the Manche area of Normandy.  The medieval town of Domfront and St Hilaire du Harcouët with all amenities are only a short distance away. The famous fortified church and UNESCO heritage site, MONT ST MICHEL, is only 40 minutes away and the port of ST. MALO a bit further along the coast. It is 1 hour 12 minutes drive from Saint-Lo (45 miles); 1 hour 19 minutes drive from Laval (45 miles) and 2 hours 38 minutes drive from Nantes (137 miles).  The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is 1 hour and 43 minutes drive and Cherbourg is 2 hours and 25 minutes.
