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 variety of uses as well as a lovely family home. 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.

Wildlife Area (with pond and numerous trees) and
Two Fields, currently home to 3 donkeys, 4 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.
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 schools up to lycée level, medical centre, pharmacy, banks, post office, bakers, hairdressers, butchers, notaire. Dol has good restaurants, cinema, mediatheque, swimming pool, 2 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'm very reluctantly leaving it after 15 happy years.
