character houses for sale - ille-et-vilaine - south of rennes

A traditional, long, farmhouse, renovated in an industrial-style,
and its outbuildings with more than 8,000 m² of land south of Rennes

Rennes, ILLE-ET-VILAINE brittany 35000 FR


This property is in the French department of Ille-et-Vilaine, thirty or so kilometres along the main road to the south of Rennes in the direction of Redon. The centre of the nearest market town, with all amenities, is about a kilometre away. Although surrounded by nuisance-free countryside, this house is not isolated.


A no-through road, turning off a secondary road, goes around several trees on its way to this property which comprises an old farm building, renovated into a long farmhouse in 2011. One end extends into a farm shed with a concrete floor notably housing 5 horse loose boxes. A shed awaiting restoration on the north side completes the buildings. The grounds, spanning 8,383 m², include a lake.

The house

This old east-west facing farm building was renovated in 2011 in keeping with an industrial style, priority being given to metal beams and spacious, open-plan rooms. It spans approx. 270 m² of living space over 2 levels.

Ground floor
The house can be entered via a room that is also in use as a study. It is followed by a machine room.
Two adjoining rooms are extremely representative of the style sought-after during the renovation works. The first is vast and comprises two areas, one a kitchen and the other for eating. A double-sided fireplace materialises the separation with the lounge.

First floor
A stairway, going up from the living area, goes left to a bedroom comprising a dressing room and a shower room. A walkway, looking down on the eating area, then provides access to a toilet, a laundry room, a bathroom and 3 more bedrooms.

The outbuildings

- A large farm shed with a concrete floor notably housing 5 horse loose boxes, spanning between 9 and 12 m².
- An 86 m² shed.
- A well and a lake (300 m²).

Our opinion

This is a superb example of the longevity and adaptability of old buildings! A more contemporary style was adopted for renovating this old cowshed or farm shed. A gamble that has paid off. The large picture windows breathe new life into the spacious rooms forming this home. The use of metal has made its decor airy and elegant. The layout ideally encourages conviviality without any loss of privacy for its residents. Courtesy of the outbuildings and the amount of land, newcomers will be able to bring their favourite animals with them, should they so wish.
