Detached 19th century farmhouse situated amidst beautiful countryside just outside the busy town of Châteauneuf-du-Faou in Finistere in the North West corner of France. The farmhouse is set back from the banks of the River Aulne which forms part of the Nantes-Brest Canal. It has been imaginatively restored and converted to provide luxurious accommodation in the form of the 3 bedroom main house and a 2 bedroom self-contained cottage which has its own private small pool.
The house and cottage sit on a 3,200 square metre plot at the end of a quiet lane which leads down to the river. A line of mature pine trees runs down one side of the gardens which contain mature trees, flower beds, rockeries, grasses and an established vegetable garden.
The main house features a large lounge (5.3 x 5.3m) with wood burning stove, fully fitted kitchen (5.3 x 4.7m) with central island, dining room (4.7 x 2.7m), laundry room (3.3 x 3.3m) and w/c on the ground floor. Double doors lead out on to the lower decking area and down into the main gardens. On the first floor there is an office (3.1 x 3.0m), family bathroom (2.8 x 1.8m), double (4.9 x 3.5m) and twin (3.1 x 2.1m) bedrooms. A second set of double doors lead out on to the upper decking area. The large master bedroom (7.5 x 4.5m) takes up the whole of the top floor with its en-suite bathroom (4.8 x 2.1m). Velux windows along both sides of the roof make this bedroom very light and airy.
Oil-based central heating provides heating to all rooms. Double glazing throughout.
The cottage/Gite features a large lounge (6 x 4.5m) with wood burning stove and office area, fully fitted kitchen with dining area (6 x 3m) on the ground floor. Double doors lead from the kitchen out to an enclosed patio and then on to the garden with its private small plunge pool. On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms and a family bathroom. Hot air from the wood burner can be pumped up to the first floor and electric heaters are fitted in both bedrooms.
Both properties are equipped with satellite television and wireless internet. A fixed line telephone is also installed.
