This traditionally styled Breton property is nicely positioned in around a quarter of an acre of well landscaped, mature gardens with lovely views. The house, which is built over three floors has 5 large bedrooms, a spacious living/dining room with a fireplace and a fitted kitchen with plenty of room for a large table and chairs. One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor along with a bathroom and separate WC. There is a shower room with separate WC adjacent to the remaining bedrooms upstairs. The lower ground floor is generous, housing a double garage, wood store, wine store, mini gym, boiler room, utility room and a built in barbecue chimney. The area has plenty of shelving and storage space.Each of the three floors has a surface area of around 120m2.
Outside there is a second, detached garage, a garden shed and the beautiful, neatly tended, mature garden. The garden includes a vegetable plot, full sized "bouladrome" and plenty of well chosen flowers and shrubs.
The house is set out so that anyone could create their own successful B&B with owner's accommodation on the ground floor and four, with a possibility of five, bedrooms on the first floor. There would also be scope to redesign some of the basement area to create bedrooms or a small self contained apartment (STC). The area is popular with holiday makers and the average B&B in the area costs 90 to 120 euros per night for a double room.
ABOUT THE AREA
The house is situated on the edge of a charming traditional village. You can walk to the Boulangerie for your daily bread and easily enjoy life as part of the community. The education offered locally is superb, and health care is enviable. The village itself has bars, a restaurant, small weekly market, a well stocked supermarket, boulangerie, post office, medical centre, primary school and many independent shops. The larger town of Merdrignac is 15 minutes away with Lamballe 20 minutes away. Lamballe has a very large weekly market, plenty of shops, bars and restaurants among it's historical half-timbered buildings. It's also famous as the home of Brittany's working horse breeding and training centre.
As is the way in Brittany, community is everything and the house is set in a lovely community. All of the neighbours are very friendly and helpful. Surrounding countryside is beautiful and there are plenty of fantastic walks on quiet country lanes and around the nearby lake with breathtaking views. It is just over 20 minutes to the coastal village of Morieux and the ferry town of St Malo is around an hour away.
