Well situated with in small hamlet , off a small lane near to the beautiful market town of Saint-James and in a popular and thriving area of Brittany. This property sits in it’s own terrain of over 2,000 square metres and has a very useful second stone building for conversion.
Within cycling distance to the local village and great links to the A84 motorway, just a 10 minute drive away, yet a very peaceful location. The airports at Rennes and Dinard and all of the ferry ports into Northern France are easily accessible from here. St Malo and Dinard around an hour away or 75 km approx. Mont St Michel 33km or just over 30 minutes drive. A superb project and could be a wonderful home.
The main house has 2 floors with original beams and wooden flooring above offers approx 196m2 of potential living space, probably enough to make 3 large en-suite bedrooms on the first floor. In addition it has a barn attached offering around 130m2 and could be ideal for conversion to gites or incorporated into the main living space.
We’re led to believe that the roof structure on the main house looks sound, this of course would need checking, the slate are the pretty diamond shape and the stone-work is lovely and incorporates 2 beautiful arched doorways to the front of the house.
The barn part would need at re-roofing. In this area timber, battens and slate is traditionally used and there is no short supply!
The property already benefits from electricity being on site, though this has been cut off for some time now. Water mains supply is close by. Benefits from having 2 wells.
The grounds appear to be very fertile and are also relatively easy to get straight and tidy up. More information is available upon request. The current owners had plans drawn up for their vision of the barn and have also had a soil test done in preparation to have a septic tank installed onsite.

Brittany's historic capital, 2,000 year-old Rennes, which lies at the confluence of the Ille et Vilaine rivers, is one of the departments four "Art Towns", the others being Fougères, Saint-Malo and Vitré. Rennes has a population of around 220,000 inhabitants and attracts a large mobile population, mainly because of the university and many business that have established in the area.
Whilst the department is the most densely-populated in Brittany, by contrast it has the youngest population, averaging under 37 years of age. Other towns and places of interest include Redon, at the confluence of Brittany's two largest rivers, the Oust and the Vilaine, and Dinard, one of Europe's finest seaside resorts. The coastal towns of Saint Malo and Dinard and the areas inland of the coast are very popular with homebuyers because of the attractive coastline, generally mild climate, great infrastructure and ease of access back to the UK and Northern Europe. From Rennes airport one can fly direct to Exeter, Southampton, Manchester, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin, and Dinard airport, although smaller, offers flights to Guernsey and London. St Malo port offers cross channel ferry access to Poole, Portsmouth, Weymouth, Jersey and Guernsey.
It is a department rich in historic and religious monuments, remarkable medieval cities and natural history with numerous museums and theatres. Its' proximity to the coast attracts a large number of tourists to the area, which is good news for those looking to set up a tourist-related business such as chambre d'hôtes or gîtes.
