Traditional 3 bedroom house with large garden and outbuildings, close to St James

This is a lovely old farmhouse dating back to 1650, built using granite and stone from a nearby manor house and retaining the original beams and walnut floorboards. It was the first house built in the hamlet, so although there are neighbours, it is not overlooked. The downstairs consists of the main living area with kitchen and a huge granite fireplace, with fabulous granite pillars. There is another living area on the other side of the open timber divide, with another fireplace. Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom, all retaining characterful beams and floorboards. The loft is large and great for storage.

Outside, there is a lovely private patio and BBQ area. The garden is large and hasa good mixture of established fruit and walnut trees.

There is a second property, which requires renovation, and would be ideal for a gite (subject to planning)-with private access and parking from the lane. Attached to the main house is a barn facing to the rear, and another facing the front, with a half open log store/workshop at the side. Adjacent to the main barn are two pigstys, and located down the lane, is a small half stone/oak frame ruin with a small strip of land.

The property is located in a very quiet hamlet surrounded by countryside and footpaths. It is within 5 mins from the lovely town of StJames, andthe A84 - perfect access to Rennes and it's airport/TGV to Paris.Mont St Michel is within 30 minutes, and the lovely bay, great for walking and bird-watching. Avranches is approx 20 minutes and has all amenities, including a hospital and train station.
