French property for sale - Le gast

4 bedroom home + almost 7 acres, near forest.

On the edge of a small hamlet, on a quiet 'no through road' leading to the forest. This versatile 4 bedroom home (1 bedroom, and bathroom on ground floor) has almost 7 acres of grazing and excellent outriding. Over the last 5 years the property has been subject to an on-going programme of improvements, which include a new roof, double glazing, new bathrooms and kitchen, and natural flagstone floors. There are some minor works to finish. (Tiling a bathroom and finishing a bedroom and boot-room) Internally, the property can be used as a single large home, a home with a granny suite or B&B rooms, or closed off to allow separate owners' accommodation and gite. The current owners live in the smaller section for the summer. This offers a shaker style kitchen/breakfast room, a comfortable sitting room with a woodburning stove, and utility room. A spiral staircase leads to a 1st floor bedroom with en-suite w.c and dressing room. There is a connecting door on both the ground floor and upstairs between the two halves of the property. The larger 3 bedroom section is let as a gite for 500-850 euros per week. (full all summer) This consists of a fitted kitchen open to a living / dining area both with views over the forest. There is a raised stone hearth with woodburner & stone floors. An inner hallway leads to a w.c, a shower-room and ground floor bedroom. A staircase from the sitting room leads to 2 more bedrooms, 2 of which are interconnecting and one having an en-suite bathroom. Most of the land is laid to well-drained, sloping paddocks with good grazing. To the front of the house the garden offers plenty of room for parking and a fenced play area. St Sever forest offers excellent off road riding, and is equally ideal for walking and cycling. The nearby Lac du Gast is a bird sanctuary and Lac de la Dathee offers an 18 hole golf course, trout fishing and a sailing club. A village with a bar/restaurant, tennis court and local shop is only minutes away. Approx. 12 km away is the market town of Vire, with a full range of shops and amenities including a hospital and railway station with daily trains to Paris. The beaches of Normandy are under 45 minutes by car, the car ferries and airport can be reached in 60-90 minutes.
