A fantastic opportunity to buy a property in the country, heated swimming pool, no neighbours, around 8000m2 of land, approx 2 acres, we have raised sheep, goats, chickens etc here, totally quiet & peaceful.
The house is situated in the commune of Plonevez Du Faou between Lannedern & Loqueffret.
Lannedern is a pretty little village just 1km away with a church, post-office, restaurant and bar.
Loqueffret is another little little village, 2kms away with a church, post-office and bar.
Although we have peace and quiet here we are not isolated with these 2 villages being so close.
There are lovel views of un-broken countryside towards the 'Montagnes Noir' (Black mountains) from the bedroom windows.
Our house has a lounge, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with the option of either oil or gas central heating.
Lounge is approx 9m05 x 5m80, 52.49sqm.
Kitchen is approx 9m05 x 4m40, 39.82sqm.
Bedroom 1 is approx 5m20 x 4m30, 22.36sqm.
Bedroom 2 is approx 3m50 x 2m80, 9.8sqm.
Bathroom is approx 3m50 x 2m20, 7.7sqm.
The bathroom comprises of full-size bath, large glass-panelled shower, vanity wash-basin unit & wc and is fully tiled.
The 'range' cooker in the kitchen which has 3 ovens & 7 burners will be left for the buyers if required.
Off the kitchen is a double-glazed conservatory, 2m30 x 3m60 with a large fridge-freezer which will be left for the buyers if required - the fridge door alone holds 24 bottles!
We also have 3 wood stoves and an electric water heater.
We have central heating throughout which can either be run via oil or by gas - we have an oil boiler & tank and a gas boiler & tank in the car-park - you can elect to run the central heating and hot water by either of these or you can use the 3rd option for hot-water (which we use), an electric 'chauffe-eau' of 200L situated in the cellar.
The cellar runs the whole length of the house, has full headroom and is equipped with shelving all around.
There are also 3 freezers, tumble-dryer and large work-bench - 2 freezers, the dryer and the bench will be left for the buyers if required.
You will see a picture of the car-park with a 'porch', its' dimensions are 1m50 deep x 2m50 wide x approx 3m high.
We have had a permit agreed by the local Mairie to demolish the existing porch and build an extension, the same height x 2m deep x the whole width of the gable-wall giving a surface area of approx 19.8sqm.
This will consist of a second bathroom, a 3rd bedroom, another utility area and a large 'entry'.
This permit has now lapsed but as we are not in a'National Park etc, the only thing involved is to take it back to the local Mairie and request a renewal which will give the prospective buyers 3yrs in which time to extend the property substantially.
The property is fully insulated.
There is also a large parking area on the side of the property, enough for certainly 4 vehicles.
Our garden is all grass with flower garden and vegetables, there are 2 glass greenhouses, a shed for the mower, and a large hangar for the tractor mower.
There is also a "mobile-home" for storage.
The main thing in our garden is a 10m x 5m pool, heated by solar energy, with a polycarbonate cover installed by professionals at a cost of € 7500 - Easter temperature 24 degrees, summer 34 degrees.
The cover consists of 5 pieces and each piece lifts up similar to a car ‘hatchback.
We live here and have loved this house for 30 years and because I will be retiring soon we are going back to the Uk.
Both 'dormer' windows have now been replaced comprising of 2 new white upvc windows, complete new dormer 'chassis', new roof-boarding, new side-boarding, new slates, new ridge-tiles, new zinc flashings, new upvc trim etc - 'tilt & turn' window in main bedroom.
Internal decoration has been completed and new shutters fitted to the ground-floor windows and patio-door.
New gates have been fitted.
The facade of the house and the gable-end have been repainted.
The Tax Fonciere last year was approx 440€
The nearest shops are in Plonevez Du Faou, approx 10 mins.
The nearest doctor & vet are in Plonevez Du Faou, approx 10 mins.

Anyone making a fair offer at this point will get a 'very good deal' - after that we will continue to re-decorate etc but the more we do, the less we will reduce the price so the sooner you make an offer, the better deal you will get.
This house has been our home for 30 years and we love it - we will be very sad to leave, but going back to the Uk will be a new chapter in our lives.
We are looking for someone who will buy this home and will love it the same as we have.
We are looking for a ’fair offer’.
All offers will be considered.
