Nestling in the countryside, just a short drive from the picturesque market town of Gouarec, the Nantes-Brest canal and the historical “Bon Repos” abbey, is the gloriously renovated “Manoir-ferme” which dates back to around 1750. The present owners have just finished fully renovating the whole property keeping a lot of the feel and character of the original property, but with a modern-day approach.
The main house offers on the ground floor, a large open plan living room and dining room with feature fireplace and original stone spiral staircase set into the half-tower. A new staircase has been added, for ease of use as the original stairs have centuries of wear, but still remain perfectly useable. Adjoining this is a fully fitted kitchen, back entrance and downstairs cloak room. To the far end is a professional theraphy lounge with seperate entrance, a hall and two small bedrooms, although this could easily transform in to a downstairs bedroom or study.
The upper floor has been entirely renovated too, all accept the flooring which at the moment is a screed finish, so down to you to choose what finish you prefer. It presently offers a master bedroom with en suite shower room and an access directly from the original spiral staircase. Then you have a large guest bedroom and a smaller single bedroom, as well as a family bathroom with slipper bath and separate shower.
The second building is also fully renovated, but this time into two separate units. The first one is of a more classical concept with lounge with vaulted ceiling, wood burner and open plan fitted kitchen. This leads onto a downstairs double bedroom with second bedroom above. Then to the other end is a shower room and a separate toilet. Upstairs is a large double bedroom.
The second unit is an amazing conversion of what was an open sided barn, it now offers a large and bright fitted kitchen, separated from the equally large living room by a slate slab partition with central wood burner, which makes a superbly bright and airy open plan living space. There is also a back porch and downstairs toilet. Then upstairs, built into the eaves and using all the character of the roof timbers is a landing, master bedroom with large angular window, a smaller single bedroom which could be used as a dressing room or study, as well as a shower room with toilet.
The whole property sits in over an acre of private gardens with feature water well, original old stone bread oven and a large wooden garden shed with water and electricity. Several centennial oaks and chestnut trees complete the timely feel to the property.
A superb property that is a prime example of traditional Breton architecture that has been there for centuries, and thanks to this exquisite renovation will be the for centuries to come!
