Full description:

Here's an opportunity to acquire a substantial property comprising two houses, one of which has been successfully let to holidaymakers over a period of years. It includes an outbuilding with a hot-tub and a double garage, standing on a plot of 4,680 sq m, conveniently close to the centre of the thriving village of Kergrist in central Brittany, about 7km north of Pontivy and about 10 km from the renowned Lac de Guerledan with its beaches, sailing, walking and fishing activities.

This is more than simply a business, it's a lifestyle. Start a new life in Brittany in this stunning property, providing an income as well as a lovely home. The grand old 'Maison de Maître' is currently let as a holiday property and features a substantial loft area which is ripe for conversion to provide further bedrooms etc. The owners' four-bedroom home is a converted barn and there is a separate cottage ready to renovate to finish and provide further accommodation if required. Both of the main houses are sympathetically restored, retaining many original features, set in a perfect location on the edge of this busy little village.

The property benefits from mains drainage (so no worries about fosses conforming to new regulations), gas central heating, mains water and electricity, all electricity and telephone wires are underground. Broadband internet is in place.

This charming property has been the current owners' home and business for the past 13 years with a successful letting history with repeat and referral business as well as new clients each year.

The business potential could be enhanced by the addition of further bedrooms on the third floor of the letting house, completion of the cottage and even the addition of a swimming pool and tennis court.

THE COTTAGE

This is a partially converted cottage (ground floor 5m x 7m, first Floor with reduced head height 5m x 6 m) sitting at right angles to the house, which when finished would provide one double-bedroomed accommodation.


GARAGE & OUTBUILDINGS

Rear garden with a variety of established trees including plum, cherry and apple with a large lawned area and a covered terrace with barbeque. The ride-on tractor is available to the purchaser by separate negotiation.

RENTAL INCOME

On average the holiday house is let for 20 weeks of the year. This is as much by choice as market led. It remains open all year round but the owners refrain from accepting bookings if family and friends want to stay, or if there is maintenance work to do. The finishing of the cottage and conversion of the second floor of the holiday let would substantially increase the revenue, as would the addition of a swimming pool and/or tennis court.

AND FINALLY....a few words from the owners:

Can you imagine a world where there is practically zero crime and you never live in fear for yourself or your goods?

A place where we never lock our car and seldom our house. We've haven't seen a policeman in our village over the last 13 years.

Can you imagine a world where the youth do not wear hoodies and do not have mobile phones constantly in their hands or glued to their ears?

Can you imagine walking into a bar you've never been in before and everyone, without exception, shaking your hand and saying hello?

Can you imagine buying a good bottle of wine for under £2.00 and a really nice 3 course meal in a quality restaurant for around £15.00?

Can you imagine a place where you never see litter?

Can you imagine a world where the older you are, the more respected and venerated you become. Where everyone on seeing the oldest man or woman will slightly doff their hats as a mark of respect.

Can you imagine a world where designer clothes or flashy cars mean absolutely nothing? Where you are accepted for who you are rather than what you represent.

Welcome to my world.

We live in a small village of some 600 people in Brittany in Northern France. We have a beautiful home and a second home attached that is rented out to holidaymakers. We have done this for over 13 years and generate a comfortable income that is enough to sustain our lives out here. You will not get rich but the quality of your life will become priceless.

We are selling our dream life and lifestyle and this is a real opportunity for someone to change their lives. Are you excited enough to want to make this change now?

Out here space is not at a premium, you do not live cheek by jowl with neighbours. Boundaries are not an issue, we are offering two wonderful spacious homes surrounded by green fields and yet within walking distance of two bar/restaurants and the village shop. We have been trading for 13 years and have an excellent letting history averaging 20 weeks per year. There is the possibility of extending and improving the current facilities either to grow the business or accommodate extended family.

Property ref. M585-56. Price excluding agency fees: EUR 428,435. Agency fees of 4.8% (including TVA) to be paid by the buyer.
