Super detached Maison de Maître with nearly 2 acres and numerous outbuildings in Normandy, a short bus ride or drive to a major market Town with all amenities.

This property has 7 bedrooms (3 of which have en-suite bathrooms) and has previously been run as a successful B&B with 4 letting rooms and rates of 60 per room per night off-peak and 75 per room per night in peak season.   It benefits from geothermal heating, double glazed windows, and numerous outbuildings one of which has potential to convert to a gîte (subject to planning).  There is potential to live sustainably with fruit trees and vegetable garden, 2 small paddocks and outbuildings. It would also suit a large family or someone wishing to work from home. Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated on the edge of Saint Hilaire du Harcouët Town centre and just over 1 hour from Saint Malo and the ferry port. Just up the road is the picturesque town of St Hilaire du Harcouet with 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. The town of Mortain 20 minutes away offers a great outdoor pool, stunning scenery and beautiful waterfalls.  It is 3 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 (30 minutes away) with regular trains to Paris taking about 2 hours and 35 minutes.
