Large detached house in a hamlet to renovate in Brittany

The property is  in need of complete renvoation, having served as a holiday home in the past but not been re-visited for years.  Nature has reclaimed the garden which is quarter of an acre.  The property itself has kept reasonably well but will need attention to the roof and a new septic tank as a bare minimum.  It stands in a peaceful hamlet with 2 neighbours.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate its potential.

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.
