AHIN-SP-001147 Nr Saint Hilaire du Harcouët 50640 Superb French Farmhouse with B&B and gîte potential standing in an elevated position overlooking pretty 1 acre gardens and rolling countryside.

The house has been tastefully renovated to reflect the charm of a traditional French farm house and benefits from double glazed windows, recent re-pointing to the end gable and rear of the property, electric heating and a woodburner. The present owner has installed new bathrooms and a kitchen and the house would lend itself to the creation of a gîte. The accommodation in part of the main house has been renovated to create two en-suite bedrooms ideal for use as B&B and there is a separate attached house to renovate to form a second gîte if required. A particular feature of the property is the pretty garden and stunning views and the quiet provided by its position set back from a "no through road". 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.

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.
