Full description:

This lovely, home-and-income property, which is being sold fully furnished, has been competitively priced to encourage an early sale.

There is an outbuilding with outline planning consent for conversion to a further dwelling.

This old farmhouse is set in an acre and a half of Normandy countryside, with small farms on all sides. However, Avranches, the major town in the area, is only 10 minutes away. The St Malo ferry can be reached in less than an hour and the ferry port at Caen is a drive of 75 minutes.

The house has 3 twin bedrooms, 2 shower rooms and 2 separate WCs. The gîte is ideal for a couple, with an en suite twin bedroom, but two more people could be accommodated on the sofa bed downstairs. The 2 units can be let separately or together for a large family. Without trying too hard, the present owners have been able to let the gîte on its own for an average rent of £175 per week for 13 weeks a year.

This is a great place for children with easy access to sandy beaches, swimming pools, zoos, horse riding and of course the famous Mont St Michel. Older visitors will enjoy a trip to the WW2 landing beaches, or a longer day's outing to Monet's garden at Giverny. There are golf courses nearby and local rivers for the fishermen. The nearby restaurants serve local produce and seafood and include a Michelin starred restaurant renowned for its quality eating at sensible prices. The restaurant was started by the celebrity chef, Jean Christoph Novelli.

About La Residence, Oxford

Bienvenue à La Résidence – the French property people.

Whatever your budget, wherever in France you want to buy, you’re now in touch with the experts. We’ve been selling houses in France for more than 25 years – in Normandy, Brittany, the Pas-de-Calais, the Vendée, Poitou-Charentes, the Limousin, Aquitaine, Burgundy, the Languedoc-Roussillon, the Midi-Pyrénées and Provence. We also offer a Paris apartment service.

Our UK-based team, with decades of professional estate agency experience between them, know the French property scene intimately. You’ll find their enthusiasm for France and the French way of life infectious. All of our colleagues in the field are entirely bilingual and chosen for their experience and outstanding levels of service. From the moment you first contact La Residence, you’ll find that we’re dedicated to ensuring that you find the right house, at the right price, in just the right spot – and with the minimum of fuss.
On our site, we showcase a wide range of French property – from barns to manor houses, from cottages to châteaux, from B & B’s to gîte complexes and hotels and from fishing lakes to country estates.
By the way, you’ll find that some agencies ask you to pay an up-front fee or make extra commission charges or to pay for the services which we provide as standard, such as help with setting up a bank account, advice on the best foreign exchange rates, transferring the utilities at the new house into your name and so on. When you place yourself in our hands you can be assured that there are no hidden extra charges. The price you pay is not one Euro more than you’d pay if you approached a French agency directly.

Stephen Hilton heads up the Oxford-based firm. He was formerly a member of the British Diplomatic Service. Following a successful career which included a number of overseas postings and culminated in his appointment in the Foreign Office as First Secretary with responsibility for Anglo/French relations, Stephen joined the family property business as a Partner. It was from this base that La Résidence was founded in 1985. Since that time, the firm has gone from strength to strength and La Résidence is now widely regarded as one of the most respected French property companies in the UK whose opinions are regularly canvassed by property correspondents commenting on the French market.

Having himself owned a house in France for many years, he has much personal experience to add to his professional expertise. Together with his French colleagues, he has successfully arranged and overseen many hundreds of transactions, and it is now rare for him to come across any situation not previously encountered.

We are based in Oxford and welcome personal visitors. If you’d like to discuss your plans face-to-face, please call us for an appointment. We’d be delighted to help to make your dreams come true.
