Quality detached house with garden and garage in a hamlet in Brittany

This superb property is believed to date back to 1732.  Over the last two and a half years it has been completely rebuilt other than the 4 stone walls.  It has luxury fittings, with no expense spared,  including a fully fitted kitchen with marble worktops and quality appliances, a spacious living room with granite fireplace and woodburner, electric heating which is remote controlled, a security system, new windows and doors and bathrooms. A new micro-station for drainage and a new roof and timbers.  It is ready to move into.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a rural hamlet in Ille-et-Vilaine in the Brittany region of France, near a village with a bar/restaurant/shop. Within easy reach is the Normandy town of St James (about 4 minutes drive) with its supermarket and out of town hypermarket with petrol station, street market (Mondays), post office, banks, bakers/patisseries, bistro, bars and restaurants. There is a trout fishing lake a short distance away on the road to St. James which children love, or more serious fishing in the valley of the Selune and Beuvron rivers. Although situated in Brittany, the property is just over the border from Normandy, and views of Mont St. Michel are nearby. The nearest beach is at Genêts which is a 20 minute drive.  The bay of Mont St. Michel is about 30 minutes drive and has many many attractions, as well as being an excellent base for history and culture. The Parliament of Brittany (Parlement de Bretagne) is approximately 51 km away. The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is about 150 km, Le Havre and Dieppe are about a 3 hour drive and the Eurotunnel at Calais is about a 4 1/2 hour drive.
