Property Summary

Beautifully presented detached French longhouse, packed full of charm and retaining many original features. Set in the village of Huisnes Sur Mer and offered ready to use. This idyllic home will make the perfect holiday residence or full-time home.

In recent years the property has been successfully rented by the current vendor as a holiday home in the spring and summer months, so would suit anyone looking for supplementary income.

Ideally placed for easy access to the ferry ports of St Malo, Caen & Roscoff or Le Havre. Low cost flights are available year-round at Dinard or Rennes.

The main house comprises of 2 large reception rooms, farmhouse style kitchen, 1 master bedroom with en-suite, and a further 2 double bedrooms with family bathroom. Also above the kitchen is a large area that can be converted into a sitting area with en-suite and bed platform with a window looking out to the Mont. The home is set in easy to maintain gardens and grounds of approx. a quarter acre with hedged and fenced boundaries making them safe for children and suitable for pets. The home also comes with the added bonus of a separate garden studio that could be used as an artist’s study, hobby room or office.

There are two further barns and a garage.  The middle barn is already concrete floored and ripe for conversion into a gite.

The beaches and the famous Mont St Michel are just 4 miles away with superb views over the bay from the village picnic area. There are numerous historical villages to visit including many WWWII sites and remembrance cemeteries. The thriving and bustling town of Pontorson also 4 miles away offers shops, supermarkets and year round events while a little further afield are Avranches, Dinan, Dinard, St Lo and Granville.

Attractively priced - an early viewing is highly recommended.

The vendors will be willing to consider all reasonable offers.
