This superb, newly renovated 3 bedroom/3 bathroom farmhouse with B&B income potential and a house for renovation as a gîte, stands in grounds of an acre in an elevated position overlooking pretty gardens and rolling countryside. It is in a quiet rural position on the Normandy/Brittany border, just an hour from the St Malo ferry.

The house has been tastefully renovated to reflect the charm of a traditional French farmhouse 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.  The accommodation in 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.   Particular features of the property are the pretty garden and stunning views as well as the peace and quiet provided by its cul-de-sac position.
