Superb detached character cottage in quiet hamlet

This delightful cottage stands in a small rural hamlet in a private position.  It has been completely renovated since 2011 including a new roof, re-wiring, new windows, floors, kitchen and bathrooms.  There is a pleasant garden of over half an acre and two useful outbuildings.  A small stream runs along the border.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated near a small French village with a local store, small restaurant and Patisserie.  St Hilaire, Brecey and Mortain are all just 10-15 minutes drive away, and all have either indoor or open air swimming pools. A 20 minute drive will take you to the larger town of Avranches, and Le Mont St Michel and the beautiful beaches are just 35-45 minutes away.  The nearest Airport is at  Dinard – 55 miles, and in the surrounding area are Rennes Airport (80 km), Deauville Airport (121 km), or St. Brieuc Airport (128 km). The nearest Port is at Saint Malo 66km or Caen Ouistreham – 75 miles.
