with more than 53 hectares in south Finistère
In the south of the French department of Finistère, near to the sea and the coastal paths bordering the coves with their fine sandy beaches, between two towns with all shops and amenities. This estate is also not far from main road and rail links. Paris can easily be reached by train (15 minutes from a station) and by airplane (daily flights from an airport, 30 minutes away).
This chateau was constructed from local quarry stone blocks, at the end of the 19th century, on the foundations of an older manor house. Dressed stone was used for the window framing and the quoins. The building spans three levels over cellars and under attic space. It is flanked on the north side by a tower with a candlesnuffer roof. Slate covers all the roofs.
The south-west facade is adorned with a monumental curved pediment with a sculpted tympanum. The windows on either side are topped with triangular pediments. It spans a total living space of almost 950 m².
A flight of steps leads to an entrance hall providing access to all the rooms on the ground floor. This level comprises two lounges, a dining room, a study, a kitchen and a toilet. Parquet flooring is laid throughout in a randomly-matched pattern except in the vestibule and the kitchen which are tiled.
This level is reached via the main stairway, illuminated by a vast atrium window. It includes a suite with two bedrooms and a bathroom, a third bedroom with a bathroom, a sauna, a lounge, a study and several hall areas.
This level comprises six bedrooms and six bathrooms.
Conversion of the attic space has made it possible to create four bedrooms with their own bathrooms, as well as a study and a storage area.
A little lookout room takes up the tower.
The basement houses six cellar areas, storerooms, a boiler room and corridors.
The manor house
The manor house, dating originally from the 15th century, spans two levels under a slate roof.
An entrance hall provides access to a bedroom with a shower room and toilet, a laundry room, a boiler room and a workshop.
This level includes a living room, a kitchen, three bedrooms, and a bathroom with a toilet.
The dovecote, spanning three levels, comprises a 25 m² living room on the ground floor and a bedroom with a bathroom on each of the upper floors (19 and 21 m²). It spans a total of approx. 72 m².
This chapel, spanning approx. 26 m², is in a good state of repair.
This estate is vast and stately, just like its chateau. The older chapel is on a different scale. Dimensions and eras are mixed together, multiplying aesthetic assets and possible uses. Choices regarding a way of life and activity are numerous especially as all major works have been completed. The sea air has just a few kilometres to travel in order to invigorate this peaceful countryside which can but do residents the utmost good.
