A 19th century, large, luxurious home and its 3,000 m² wooded garden
in the midst of a quiet village on Brittany’s Pink Granite Coast
Perros-Guirec, COTES-D'ARMOR brittany 22700 FR

Location

In the west of the Trégor region, near to a town in first place as regards French towns where it is pleasant to live according to the number of inhabitants, just 4 km from the fine sandy beaches and 15 minutes from a TGV train station. This property looks out over a quiet street, in the midst of a typical Breton village, with its small parish enclosure. A small square lawn is laid out behind the church and provides access to a little pedestrian street as well as to a fountain. The following, old wash-house has been beautifully restored. The alleyway leads to a public tennis court, French as well as Breton bowls pitches and, a little further on, to a sports stadium. Hiking trails lead from the house through the woods and across meadows, sometimes with an unobstructed view of the sea from the top of a rise.

Description

This property comprises a large, luxurious home, extended by an old outbuilding, now converted into adjoining living space. Both have been fully restored as one using quality materials. Facing the main building is a long, traditional farm building, the carcass of which was recently restored, but the inside still awaits conversion. The latter comprises two vast areas and a garage. And lastly, standing at right angles to these two buildings are the very well-preserved mangers, forming a large storage space. The courtyard features a sandy-coloured, granular surface on either side of the buildings and provides access to a garden, planted with a variety of trees and flowering plants.

The large, luxurious home

Various doors open into the building, whose main entrance features a semi-circular arch. Another more discreet door opens on to the garden. A basket-handle arched picture window takes up its full width.


Ground floor
On either side of a traditional wooden stairway, set in front of the entrance, is a fully fitted, open-plan kitchen, complete with its eating area. A dining room precedes a lounge. The kitchen is fitted with a cast iron Aga cooker and storage heater. The latter was shipped direct from the English county of Shropshire, in the West Midlands. It is able to grill, simmer, steam, roast, cook on a plancha grill and heat the room all at once. The lounge has a very-well preserved, period dressed stone fireplace, fitted with a wood-burning stove. The walls, covered with a mixture of hemp and whitewash, feature windows with exposed stone surrounds. Other features include sandblasted period beams, traditional terracotta floor tiles, cast iron radiators heated via a mains gas-fired boiler and double-glazed, wooden-framed windows.
First floor
The landing provides access to two vast bedrooms as well as a bathroom with a toilet. One of the bedrooms has its own shower room and toilet. Stone, whitewash and wood are omnipresent. The original fireplaces have been preserved. There are numerous windows, some of the rooms running the full width of the building.
Second floor
A wide mezzanine separates two bedrooms.

The small, adjoining, rehabilitated house

The large, luxurious home is extended by a 2-storey building which has been completely rehabilitated and converted. It is accessed via the living room or via the vast terrace and its basket-handle arched picture window.


Ground floor
A spacious, bright lounge is heated via a wood-burning stove. Facing south-west, the sunlight floods into the room summer and winter alike. The room’s luminosity is increased by two lightwells set in the cathedral ceiling. The garden is but a stone’s throw away.
Between this monumental area and the ground floor of the main house is a utility room in use as a vast back kitchen and a shower room. The mistress of the house currently uses it for doing her ironing, making jam and other menial tasks.

First floor
A bedroom under the rafters could also be used as a private office for a professional working from home. In fact, the stone, load-bearing wall insulates it perfectly from the living room and the bedrooms.

The long, parallel outbuilding

This outbuilding, almost as long as the main house, has undergone first-class restoration works. The carcass has been completed but free rein can be given to the conversion of the two vast areas in addition to the already functional garage.

The mangers

Made of stone, these are enhanced with wooden doors and are used for storing gardening equipment or as larders.

The garden

This pleasantly organised garden alternates flower beds, trees, stone walls of varying sizes, lawns and a pergola. A water supply has been laid on for the construction of a pool.

Our opinion

This geographical location is quite strategic as it is but a stone’s throw from the beaches and a renowned seaside resort, near to all shops in a peaceful setting in the midst of a quiet village.
A bright, welcoming and authentic property, it looks out over its immaculately kept garden. Its vast outbuilding, whose vocation is still to be decided, would lend itself to a multitude of projects. The natural, historic heritage of the well-protected coastline pleasantly enhances the property’s assets with those of the sea and the countryside.
