  • Property Description:
    This beautifully renovated farmhouse has been meticulously restored to a high standard by the present owner.
    It was originally one of the buildings belonging to a local Manor House and estate and the renovations were finished in 2009.  The property benefits from anti-infraction (ground floor) argon filled double glazed windows, a centralised mechanical ventilation system, under floor heating on the ground floor and electric radiators on the first floor, a new regulation all water septic tank.  The electricity and phone lines have been tunelled underground to avoid spoiling the outlook from the property.  The property is on the outskirts of a small, lively town and it is about 200m from a local bridleway.  The house is being sold with just over 2 acres of land.
    The property is situated in a village where you will find an award winning boulangerie, a butcher, a post office, a bank, a supermarket with petrol station, 2 bars, a restaurant, a hairdresser and 2 brocante/second hand shops. A market is held in the village square on Friday mornings. The town of Fougeres is just 20 minutes away, and has the largest medieval château in Europe. It has many good shops, cinema and ten pin bowling. Just outside the town is the Forest of Fougeres, 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, Le Havre – 2.5 hours, Cherbourg – 2 hours. The airports at Rennes is about 1 hour away and Dinard is about  1 hr 30 minutes  away.
    The house is situated in the Pays de La Loire but travel five minutes and you can be in Normandy or Brittany. Fougeres, with its ancient belfry, many shops, bars and restaurants is 20 minutes away. The medieval town of Domfront is 30 minutes away. The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is less than an hour away. The towns of Gorron, Ernee and Mayenne are close by. The market town of St Hilaire du Harcouët is approx 15 minutes away.
