Renovated farmhouse with potential to extend, outbuildings and enclosed paddock

This house was renovated in about 2015 and offers characterful accommodation with room to extend into the attached barn.  At that time the property was re-wired and had new plumbing and an all water septic tank.  There is a separate detached house which could be renovated, subject to planning, and an old bakery.  The paddocks are fully enclosed and suitable for a pony or sheep, etc.  Viewing is recommended.

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