with almost two hectares in Morbihan
This property is set in the midst of Brittany’s countryside, on undulating land that is part of a town, with less than 5,000 inhabitants, near to Pontivy in the north of the French department of Morbihan. The nuisance-free, peaceful surroundings are predominantly given over to cultivated fields. All shops are but a few minutes away.
In the 18th century, two buildings were adjoined to the oldest section, dating from 16th and 17th centuries, resulting in an L-shaped building, spanning approx. 460 m² of living space over two levels. The walls are built of quarry stone blocks of granite whilst dressed stone forms the framing around the windows and the quoins. The slate roofs feature roof dormers with curved pediments.
This level, spanning almost 310 m², comprises three lounges, two of which have cathedral ceilings, a 67 m² reception room, a study, a kitchen, a bathroom as well as miscellaneous storage rooms, a machine room and a cellar. Some are through rooms and also open on to the back. The floors are covered with parquet flooring and granite or slate tiles. There are four fireplaces.
Two stairways lead up to the first floor. Under the sloping roofs, it comprises two landings, five bedrooms and two bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is reached via a stairway going up from the summer lounge and can be accessed from the outside.
The outbuildings include a guest house, two sheds and a swimming pool.
This building, standing at the entrance to the property, is known as “the chapel”. Constructed from stone, it has stone framing around its triangular or semi-circular arched windows. It comprises a living room-bedroom and a shower room on the ground floor. A sleeping area on a mezzanine spans approx. 38 m².
The swiming pool
This covered swimming pool measures 11x4.5 m.
The ages of the buildings are engraved in the granite. One large unit stands out from the rest. The spacious rooms under spectacular roofing frameworks are sometimes impressive and yet a cosy feeling prevails. These premises could possibly be made perfect with a few minor works.
