Situated in the heart of the Blavet Valley, not far from the popular town of Baud and only 30 mns from the coast, a unique riverside property comprising of a 17th century manor house for renovation, a 3 bedroom home built in 1976, heated and covered swimming pool set in just under 8 acres of private grounds with 300 meters of river frontage .
The main house was built in 1976 using a lot of the stone recuperated from the old stone farm buildings that were on site. It offers an entrance hall with cloak room, massive open plan kitchen/diner/lounge with vaulted ceiling and fireplace, downstairs bedroom with en suite bathroom, utility room and back entrance. The staircase was built based on the model found in the Napoleonic Hospital in Pontivy. Upstairs you have a open landing, a first bedroom with en suite shower room, second bedroom with en suite bathroom, as well as a separate toilet. The property was built with quality materials for the period, and thus although in perfect condition, could do with a new modern redecoration.
The manor house dates back to the 17th century, and is for complete renovation, the present owners did replace the roof in order to protect the building, but the interior will need complete renovation. The good thing is that all the original features are still there including the granite kitchens, two sets of interlink triple doors, original paving slabs in the entrance hall, the spiral staircase which has the particularity of being built into a square tower, the old latrine are still visible upstairs too! The manor is a lovely renovation project, even more so because of the setting!
Outside, the property is completely hidden from the road, and can only be slightly distinguished from the tow path on the other side of the river. In the 3.14 hectares of grounds crossed by a small stream, you will find the heated and covered swimming pool, the antique bread oven, the old bird pens with ponds as well as a modern animal shelter set of in the woods. And not forgetting the 600 yards of River frontage! The Blavet is a canalised river, thus completely navigable, but keeping the natural aspect of the surroundings. A real paradise on earth, with potential for so much more!
