in almost a hectare, 15 minutes from the sea in Brittany
5 minutes from the Paris-Brest TGV train line and all amenities, in the midst of the tourist Trégor region, 10 km from the sea, all within easy reach via a fast road. This property is along a no-through road in a hamlet in the midst of the countryside. Nearby are several markets and farms selling home-grown fruit and vegetables as well as local organic produce.
The old Commandery
This rectangular, 2-story building is topped with a gable roof. The facade has twin gothic arched doors, an unusual feature in this region. The servants’ hall or guard room is heated via a monumental Renaissance-style fireplace, with fluted jambs supporting corbels, sculpted in scrolls ending in a plant motif.
Each of the twin doors opens into a living area. Whilst the left wing is bigger, the right wing, still with packed mud floors, also has a large fireplace, bearing witness to the fact that it was once something other than a storeroom. The left wing houses a wooden stairway going upstairs. The right wing has but a stationary ladder, providing access to a high-ceilinged attic awaiting conversion.
Two rooms in the left wing, one of which, partitioned with its little fireplace, was probably once a bedroom. A stairway goes up to the attic.
Standing facing the Commandery, this ruin was probably constructed in more recent times (no doubt the 17th century). Its roof is still partially intact. The building’s roofing framework and roof await complete replacement.
A shed, standing behind the main building, on its end bordering the access lane, cleverly isolates the south side of the house and forms an area ideal for the installation of a terrace and an unoverlooked garden. The current area inside the shed exudes all its rusticity of yesteryear.
A small machine room
A more recent area at the end of the Commandery could be used as a machine room for housing a boiler or heat pump.
The large farm shed
This traditional, local construction, composed of wood on granite stone, is shown on the land registry plans. It was used for storing hay and farm tools. Its structure is in a very good state of repair but its roof needs to be redone.
Vestiges of an era when the Order of the Temple was spread throughout the area. It was saved courtesy of the nobility of its architecture and several of the region’s great families who took up residence there. It is now waiting to be given back its splendour of yesteryear so as to become a peaceful haven, just a few minutes from the beaches. It has everything, a roof, water, electricity, two fireplaces and a telephone line, for those seeking refuge. Major works will, however, need to be scheduled in order to improve the somewhat spartan home comforts. This property is big enough for new residents to imagine accommodating animals and a prolific vegetable garden. Countryside at the seaside.
