Full description:

Longère in a haven of tranquillity with solar panels providing an income of around ¿5,000 a year.

If you are searching to escape to a quiet life in the French countryside then this south-facing longère dating from 1801 and surrounded by farmland offers just that opportunity, with the usual amenities required to maintain daily life being within easy reach. Renovated using quality materials, this property with its large lawned garden sits on a VERY quiet country lane and is not overlooked by its one neighbour. The small, local village with its (English-owned) bar and church is just under a mile away and the town of Rostrenen with its banks, supermarkets and an abundance of other businesses is about seven or eight minutes' drive away. Solar panels on the house and garage roofs generate a combined income of usually between ¿4,900 and ¿5,200 a year under a contract with eDF which runs until 2030. Tempted? A visit is highly recommended to be able to fully appreciate the peace and quiet of this countryside setting.


Floor space (1.8m height and above): 132m².

Plot size: approximately 2 500 m² (further land of up to one hectare is available subject to separate negotiation).

The entrance hall of 8m² includes a fitted broom or cloak cupboard and gives access to the kitchen, the staircase, a separate WC, a shower room, the office and the utility room.

LOUNGE / DINING ROOM (approx 37.6m²): a traditional granite fireplace with fitted fire, deep windowsills made from chestnut wood and decorated with 'eggshell' wallpaper. The ornate, craftsman-made dining suite and separate display cabinet which are made from white birch are available to the purchaser subject to negotiation.

FITTED DINING KITCHEN (approx 17.6m²): fitted in oak and featuring a tiled work counter, a double sink, a four-hob (three gas, one electric) cooker with a copper-plated extractor fan, an electric oven, a refrigerator and a dishwasher.
