Superb contemporary Farmhouse in Normandy with just under an acre of garden and a double garage.

This delightful property benefits from under floor heating on the ground floor and the addition of a conservatory.  The property was rewired about 10 years ago and is fitted with double glazed wood framed windows.  The open plan living space is light and airy and the attached garage could be converted into additional living space or a self-contained gîte, subject to planning, if required.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property  is located in Manche in the Normandy region of France. The closest airport  is Rennes Airport (71 km) also within reach are Dinard Airport (76 km), Angers Airport (119 km), or Deauville Airport (129 km).  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont St Michel is 36km away from the property and the Parliament of Brittany (Parlement de Bretagne) 64km away.   The property is situated  7 kms from the town of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët  which has one of the biggest markets in the area on a Wednesday morning which takes over most of the town centre. The town has all amenities including some great restaurants, bars, and cafes. It also has a park with two adjoining lakes and a childrens' playground. There is an indoor pool with a spa and a water slide. Crazy golf is available with clubs and balls for hire from a nearby bar. Fishing and horse-riding are within easy reach.  The town of Mortain (7km away) offers a great outdoor pool, stunning scenery and beautiful waterfalls, and all amenities.  It is just a few minutes away  from the Normandy/Brittany border and is set in the countryside.  It is within easy access of the main ferry ports, Cherbourg, Ouistreham (Caen), and St Malo (at most 1.5 hours drive) and Le Havre (about 2.5 hours).  The nearest mainline train station is at Vire or Avranches (30 minutes away) with regular trains to Paris taking about 2 hours and 35 minutes.
