Normandy, Manche

€360,000 ID: 147400

Idyllic secluded 4-bed watermill with 2-bed guest cottage set in 3-hectares of woodland with 2 lakes and 1-acre of grassland, located between Avranches and Villedieu-les-Poëles just 16km from the beach in the Bay of the Mont Saint Michel

Nestled in a wooded valley, well off the beaten path, this lovely property is the perfect haven of peace and privacy.
The old watermill forms the main house with spacious living/dining room, dominated by a gorgeous granite fireplace, enjoying elevated, south-facing views over the gardens and woodland beyond.
Doors lead from the lounge and fitted kitchen to a raised terrace garden, the perfect place to relax and enjoy long summer evenings.

Upstairs are four bedrooms, one with doors leading to its own private garden.

Across the garden sits the 2-bedroom guest cottage which enjoys views over the park to the river.
To the north, between the river and lane, is just over an acre of grazing land, to the south and west the land is all wooded with two lakes.

The millrace is still fed but with no waterwheel in place.

A great property for indoor-outdoor living for those wanting total privacy or a house with gite!
