Beautifully presented traditional stone house in Brittany with 1 1/4 acre garden.

The property is deceptively spacious and offers family accommodation which would be ideal for a holiday let if required.  It benefits from double glazed windows and plenty of original features with exposed stone and beams, oak flooring and a bespoke kitchen.  It is ready to move into immediately.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The nearest village to this property has a bar/tabac/restaurant/shop.  About 5 minutes away is the larger town of Louvigné-du-Desert with its shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The property is about half an hour from the UNESCO heritage site Mont St Michel and 15km from Fougères.  'L'Ange Michel' leisure resort is 10 minutes away. The property is well served by airports at Rennes (45 miles) and Dinard (56 miles). There are regular ferry services from Saint-Malo (1 hour away). There is a TGV main rail line from Rennes too.  The nearest beach is at Genêts (20km).  The D-Day landing beaches and the Loire area are about 2 hours away.  The main towns of Saint-Lô is 1 hour's drive and Nantes is just under 2 hours' drive.
