This is a property with great income potential. The existing 2 bedroom/2 bathroom gîte has a 5 star rating and the main house, with 4 en suite bedrooms, has obvious potential for use as a B&B. The property is situated in a rural hamlet but near a small town with shops. The total plot measures two-thirds of an acre.
The property offers excellent family accommodation but would also lend itself to use as a B&B with 3 rooms which could be let, each with en-suite shower rooms or bathrooms. The well appointed gîte is ideal for letting to 2 couples with almost identical bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms and spacious, well equipped, open plan living accommodation.
The property is located in a quiet rural hamlet, within easy reach of amenities. It is ready to move in to. The gîte is completely separate from the main house – ideal for privacy and rents for £135 a night in peak season. It has 5 stars on Trip Advisor and a Premier Partner rating with Home Away. The main house enjoys a large stone terrace, outbuildings and a total plot size of 2725m² (0.67 acres).
The property is situated in a peaceful position near the small town of Ger (with all everyday amenities) and with easy access of the historic market town of Mortain which is a thriving market town where excellent shopping facilities, restaurants and bars are available.
The property is roughly equidistant from the ferry ports of both Caen and St Malo, a drive of 1 hour 20 minutes. The Lac de la Dathée, ideal for walking, fishing and boating, and an 18-hole golf course are within 20 minutes drive of the property, as is the Saint Sever Forest.
