former 18th century orangery and its outbuildings
In the south of Morbihan, at the entrance to the eponymous Gulf and close to the Ria d’Etel, on a site renowned for its landscapes dotted with islands and islets including Saint-Cado, but also its historic surroundings and megalithic remains. A privileged setting perfect for bike rides, outdoor living and visiting oyster farms. Less than fifteen minutes from Auray station with trains to Paris in 2 hours 40 minutes, and just a few minutes from the town centre and its local convenience stores, cultural facilities and schools.
Bordered to the west by three ancient oak trees, to the east by a courtyard with kennels, and to the south by meadows.
Built of brick and stone with a recently laid slate roof, the former orangery spans approx. 265 m2 over two levels. The gable faces due south. The high ceilings 3.6 m and thickness of the walls are also typical of an orangery.
The entrance leads to three spaces: living room with fireplace followed by a workshop, both measuring 30 m2, on one side; an area used as a study on the other; then a kitchen with stove and fireplace. A laundry room, bathroom and finally a bedroom complete this level.
The building plan is simple, it is two rooms deep except for the rooms against the gable walls. The floor is tiled.
The attic space under the rafters is accessed via a staircase leading up from the entrance. The surface area spans 130 m2 and awaits conversion.
Small brick and stone outbuilding topped with slate roof, this former kennel comprises four 28 m2 spaces.
The garden shed, built almost exactly like the previous building, also comprises three 25 m2 spaces.
Ideally located just a stone’s throw away from the Ria d’Etel and the Gulf of Morbihan with its rich historic and religious past, the spectacle of a wild and mysterious land-locked sea is just a few minutes away. The property is not far from town comforts and communication networks yet without the disadvantages.
A further advantage: the orangery offers a great possibility of doubling the surface area by converting the whole upper floor currently not used for any specific purpose.
