A former guest house next to a beautiful monastery and overlooking a lake, this property has around 750 square metres of accommodation including attached outbuildings. The principal accommodation is of around 400m2 while the outbuilding are around 350m2. It is in need of replastering, new plumbing and electrics, and could either be converted into a large home or used for commercial letting purposes.
The owner estimates that the main house alone, excluding the outbuildings, could produce a rental return of 70,000 euros per year based on renting the 18 potential letting rooms at a very conservative price of 70 euros per room, per week. The return could be so much more if the property was modernised to a higher standard and reopened as a guesthouse. The outbuildings, subject to planning permission, would make 3 two bedroom cottages or further letting bedrooms if the hotel option was chosen.
The house has benefitted from a new roof to the front 3 years ago with enough slates left over to retile the mansard roof to the side or the outbuildings. A very large sewage treatment plant has also been installed in the last 12 months although the drain pipes need to be installed and connected between it and the property. There are also two large air source heat pumps for the heating included in the sale. These cost the vendor £6000 each. In addition there is a £4000 bi-fold door for the left hand side of the ground floor at the front. Planning permission has also been given to install 3 dormer windows where the roof needs replacing in one of the outbuildings at the side, overlooking the lake.
The garden forms a strip down the side of the lake plusa large garden at the front of the house. There is also a dense wood of about an acre in size included in the sale and a large area that could be used for commercial parking at the side which could become further garden space if preferred.
About The Area
This 'Ancien hotel' is situated in the community of Plouray which is on the Brittany peninsular approximately equidistant from the beautiful, but very different coastal resorts of Douarnanez and Vannes. Douarnanez overlooks a long stretch of sandy beach adjacent to a warm, wide and shallow bay, whereas Vannes is a chic Breton town with a charming small port and many shops, cafes and restaurants. The property is in a rural community area close to the historic Abbey Notre-Dame de Langonnet. It is also close to several delightful tourist attractions such as Pont Aven, Quimper and Lorien. As such it is well placed to attract both holiday makers and people travelling down the west coast of France. It is convenient for the ferry port of Roscoff and, slightly further afield, St Malo and Caen. It is approximately 3km to the nearest village shop.
