Situated on a no-thru road and originally a hunting lodge, this property has been renovated into a beautiful, and deceptively spacious, family home. There are 5 bedrooms, lots of character features and a good-sized garden. The house is close to the beautiful town of St James, 30mins from the beach at St Malo and has good access to cross-channel ferries.
The house is situated in a small hamlet that is accessed via a quiet no-through road. The large sitting room and family kitchen are the heart of the home and there’s lots of space for hobby or music rooms / a home office and any other past-times that need some space to get creative.
Looking at the photo, you might not believe there is a total of 187m2 habitable space! Here’s the layout:
Entrance hall with beautiful tiled floor
Cosy snug / TV room
Garden room with french doors that open to the garden
A few steps up to the large sitting room with french doors to the garden and a granite fireplace with wood burning stove (with back boiler that heats the radiators)
Kitchen / dining room with double-aspect windows & stable door at the front of the property
Utility room with lots of storage, WC and plumbing for a washing machine.
First floor (hunters lodge side):
Stairs in the kitchen lead to the first floor.
Family bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, double washbasins, bidet & WC
Master bedroom with double aspect windows & lovely countryside views. Granite fireplace (not currently in use)
Ensuite shower room with WC
Doorway in Master bedroom leads to……
A large room currently used as a craft room and large walk-in wardrobe
First floor (barn side)
Two large double bedrooms
(The bedrooms on the barn side of the building are currently accessed through Bedroom 2 in the hunting lodge. However, it could be possible make the bedroom smaller and create a corridor to bypass the bedroom. Alternatively, it could also be an option to install a new staircase at this end of the property. There is lots of potential here to create a space that works for the new occupiers’ requirements.)
The garden covers an area of around half an acre and there are two distinct areas. The enclosed garden and terrace are accessible from the French doors from both the garden room and sitting room - the ideal spot for dining outdoors during the summer months. There is also a large shed in this area, useful for storing garden furniture and tools.
A side gate leads to the parking area where there is space for several cars then a 5-bar gate leads to the rest of the land which is where the little veg patch with raised beds is situated, a good selection of fruit trees including apple, pear, plum and walnut. There is also a woodstore and another storage shed in this area of garden.
The house is situated in a lovely quiet spot and the road in front of the house is a no-thru road so any passing traffic will either one of the 3 neighbours, the local farmer or lost! The lovely town of Saint James is 4.5km away, so a 7min drive or, if you’re feeling energetic, a 20min bike ride.
In Saint James you’ll find all the amenities you need for day to day essentials. There are shops, restaurants, bars, supermarkets and, of course, a weekly fresh produce market. The town has a lively community and get-togethers include free music nights.
Other places in the local area that are good to explore are St Malo, Cancale, Combourg and Avranches. Mont St Michel (the UNESCO site and most visited attraction in France!) is just 30mins away and, as well as the famous island abbey, the bay has some beautiful sandy beaches.
The nearest railway station is 26km away at Avranches and the two nearest ferry ports would be St Malo (66km) and Caen Ouistreham (141km)
