I've reduced the price to encourage a quick sale as my mobility and health are deteriorating.
A very light, comfortable, spacious stone detached home. Well renovated and maintained in stunning location. A nature lovers' paradise with lots of space for domestic animals too. Open to a range of uses as well as a lovely family home. Includes fully equipped mobile home and attached small stone house. I am selling very reluctantly due to ill health, but will remain in the area and would help new owners to settle if necessary.
I have tried to develop my home and to live, in as an environmentally conscious way as possible.

A heat exchange pump supplies the hot water and central heating (under floor on ground floor and individual radiators upstairs).
Fibre Optic Wi-Fi. Septic tank.
All required diagnostic tests, etc are complete and available to interested viewers.

There is a garage attached to the house which is currently used as storage area and houses washing machine 3 x 7 (21 m2)
The house has an attached two storey stone building 6 X 6: (total 72 m2) which will easily convert to a very pleasant two-bedroomed home. This could share the mobile home garden. I had planned to do his for myself, but as my health has worsened I have had to give up the idea. My ideas, plans and estimates are available.

At the far end of the second garden is a two-bedroomed, fully equipped static caravan with own large garden and vegetable beds .
The house has occasionally been let as a holiday home and the mobile home used as owner’s temporary very comfortable accommodation (at 1100€per week in 2019). I have also taken some B&B clients in 1 or 2 bedrooms. this is easily managed due to the configuration of the house.

Set in over 1.16 hectares (2.5 acres), the property has a large Flat Lawned Gardens currently divided in two by fence to allow private gardens for house (c.1000m2) and static caravan (c.900m2)
Behind this is the Swimming Pool area. Pool, 11 X 4.5, pool shed with filtration equipment (pump renewed 2018) and grass and paved areas with wonderful views.

Wildlife Area (with pond and numerous trees).

Two Fields, currently home to 3 donkeys, 3 Ouessant sheep and a small goat. Animal shelters and former hen house.

There are apple, pear, plum, cherry, peach, fig and walnut trees. There is a strawberry patch and many other vegetables have been grown

Gravelled car park.

Each area is well-fenced and the whole property is thus secure for children and animals. The back of the property is bounded by a stream (fishing available) which can be crossed to walk on the Marais, populated by a variety of birdlife and, in summer, cows. Owners of properties backing onto the stream have an ancient right to graze animals there. In the winter, this Marais floods naturally and may resemble a lake. There is much wildlife to be seen from the house and garden. This year has seen a flock of storks spending time with various ducks and geese.

The property is on the Brittany/Normandy border in the Mont St Michel Bay. Tranquil, but not isolated. Beautiful countryside and close to beaches. Local town and excellent supermarket under 2 kms. Markets with fresh produce. Many marked footpaths, beautiful villages and towns, restaurants, tourist attractions, etc. Pleine-Fougères (2kms) has weekly market, 2 nursery/primary schools, 2 collèges, medical centre, pharmacy, banks, post office, bakers, hairdressers, butchers, notaire, bars and a restaurant. Dol has good restaurants, cinema, mediatheque, swimming pool, 3 lycées, great Saturday market. Rennes and St Malo are larger towns close by.

Mainline station at Dol de Bretagne with TGV to Paris. Airports at Rennes and Dinard. Ferry ports at St Malo, Cherbourg, Caen, Le Havre, Dieppe. Easy access to N176 across Brittany.

I'd be very pleased to have telephone discussions and take more photos to order. This is a wonderful home and I will be very reluctantly leaving it after 15 happy years.
