Property Description

This exquisite and unique French Manor House with a stunning garden and swimming pool is located in a popular village where you will find an award winning boulangerie, butcher, a post office, supermarket, bars, weekly market, a restaurant and more... The town of Fougeres is just 20 minutes away, and has the largest medieval château in France and in Europe.

This delightful  house has had no expense spared inside or out; the walls are hand painted and the formal gardens are superb.  The house is built in the Maison Bourgeoise style and looks very different from the road than it does from the front.  It used to belong to the grandparents of a famous artist Marin Marie and it is believed to have been built in 1809.  

There is about 400 sqm of living space over 3 floors, everywhere you look there is more evidence of a real eye for detail.  The property benefits from oil fired central heating, centralised mechanical ventilation and double glazed windows.  The garden is stunning and boasts outbuildings, a summer kitchen and bar and a covered swimming pool.

Recent improvements include the designer modern bespoke kitchen, a new shower in the master bedroom suite, some new shutters, a new security system.  The exterior of the house was repainted 2 years ago, a new electric gate system was installed on the gate leading to the driveway and garage and the whole electrical system was upgraded with substantial re-wiring and new fuseboards in the cellar.  The swimming pool has had a new air source heat pump, new skimmers and a new pool liner has been installed.
