Very liveable and in excellent structural condition with new electrics. The house was built to a high standard and all original features remain in fantastic condition (fire places, floors, cast iron radiators, staircases, beams). It's in a good location commutable from Rennes and an hour from the seaside. The house is also only a few metres away from the Brittany wide cycling green lane. Great country side around with a really cool dynamic community who are more than welcoming to new arrivals.
Ground floor: Very large open space kitchen with dining space and a fireplace and a unique terrazzo floor. Sitting room/ snug with a fireplace and stove.
Wooden spiral stair leads to:
Upstairs: 5 Bedrooms, bathroom. Wooden floors.
Stairs continue up to a huge loft with very high ceilings and windows. Wiring in place for conversion. We had imagined a giant bedroom with a bathroom.
Insulation and final fitting required to turn it from a perfectly liveable house into a proper dream house. It has loads of light due to the large number of windows and high ceilings, which is rare in Brittany. All the boring stuff is done, electrics and drains etc. Much of what remains is supported by grant systems in France. We can provide all the paperwork for this as we went through the process before deciding to sell.
Oil fired heating, brand new boiler fitted 5 years ago. Beautiful big cast iron radiators throughout the house.
Small stone house next door. Ready for conversion into a decent two bedroom town house.
Open fronted barn: Lots of space for firewood and cars.
Stables/ Workshops: 320 square meters of stable and workshop space. Buildings all in good condition with well-maintained slate roofs. Most have concrete floors and all are dry.
The barns and the house form a hard standing yard with well and flower beds.
Field to the rear is large enough for a horse, or other projects. We’Ve planted 500 small trees around its perimeter and some fruit trees. It is also buildable until 2017.
We are selling because we now work overseas (Africa) and the dream we had of a big house in the country is just not coherent with our international lifestyle. I have drawings and quotes for finishing it and can give guidance on how to access the grants for the main house and renovation of the second house.
