Beautifully presented country house with versatile accommodation
This beautiful house was completed renovated between 2010 and 2015 and benefits from geothermal heating, spacious rooms and ready to move in condition. The master bedroom suite is on the ground floor and could easily be made into a self-contained annexe or gîte. There is potential for a B&B with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is immaculately presented with half an acre of well-maintained gardens and a large south facing patio. There was planning consent for a double garage which has now lapsed.
The property is situated in the Mayenne department but on the Normandy/Brittany borders, within easy reach of both ferries and airports. It is about 1 km from a village with a shop, hairdresser, Post office and bar/restaurant. The major towns of Ernée and Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët are about a 15 minute drive with all amenities and Gorron is a 20 minute drive. For ferries, Caen is approximately one and a half hours to the north, and St Malo only about 1hr 15 mins to the west. The airports at Rennes and Dinard are about a 1 hr 30mins drive away. The well-known old town of Fougères with its famous château, is about 20 minutes west from the property. The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is approx. 45 minute drive, as are some lovely Normandy beaches.
