A country house, its flowering garden and its covered swimming pool,
with a distant view of the sea on the Pink Granite Coast
Perros-Guirec, COTES-D'ARMOR brittany 22700 FR

Location

This property, with a view of the sea on the horizon, is 15 minutes from the much-appreciated seaside resort of Perros-Guirec, its beaches and its marina. Although set in peaceful, wooded surroundings, the nearest beaches are but 4 km or a 10-minute drive away. The GR 34, the star of the coastal hiking trails and a great favourite with the French, is just 10 minutes away. It gives unobstructed views over the surrounding scenery and the Pink Granite Coast. All shops and amenities are nearby in a booming little town which greatly benefits from the dynamic area around Lannion.

Description

The access road goes through woods, fields as well as bocage countryside, with irregular-shaped fields separated by hedges and ditches. On the other side of a meadow, a tree-lined lane leads to the house which, composed of four buildings reflecting an assortment of architecture, is surrounded by a garden. A ruin, just a few metres away from the building, is harmoniously enhanced with exotic plants. Also nearby, a workshop, a carport, a garage and a greenhouse are ideal for garden and DIY enthusiasts. A terrace, behind the house, precedes a covered swimming pool. A vast meadow and its four horse loose boxes, followed by a wood composed of beech and oak trees, extend this secluded, completely unoverlooked property.

The house

This property is divided into four distinct sections, three of which intercommunicate with one another. The fourth, adjoining one end, has two independent outside entrances on a gable wall. Each opens into a large bedroom, with a shower room and toilet. A real asset for accommodating passing guests. The owners have created an exotic atmosphere, using wooden decor combined with flowering, climbing plants. The houses at either end are topped with a gable roof covered with tiles, the ochre colour of which blends extremely well with the exotic species in the garden. One has an air of a village bell-tower, with its double, hanging roof dormer covered in lead. The other is flanked with two dressed stone, gable-fronted roof dormers. Each of the vertical facades features an engraved scallop, symbol reminiscent of the premises used as a refuge by pilgrims on the Way of Saint James. Between these two houses, with their summery colours, is a more modern house, reflecting a more traditional Breton style through its grey-blue cladding, embellished with more contemporary openings. Its gable roof is covered with slate. The entire house features surrounds framing the openings that alternate granite quarry blocks and dressed stone. Two doors, with semi-circular arches, complete the architectural picture.


Ground floor
A vast entrance hall in the central building provides access to the rooms. On one side, a few steps lead to a bright lounge, paved with terracotta floor tiles. The stone of the walls and the beams in the ceilings are exposed. A wooden stairway is painted white, the fireplace and the alcoves are made of granite. The most beautiful original features have been preserved. They are enhanced by the transversal light flooding in through the windows overlooking the garden. A closed-hearth fire has been cleverly installed in the fireplace. This aesthetic feature makes it possible to sit cosily around the fireplace during the winter months. Next to this relaxation area, a bright, south-facing, fitted kitchen includes an eating area looking out over the swimming pool. With an arbour and shelters, it is an invitation for breakfasts in the sun, for quiet afternoons and for evenings with friends. On the other side of the entrance hall, a vast dining room, with an impressive granite fireplace in pride of place, is better suited to more formal meals. And lastly, a study and a large linen room, two rooms which are a must in any family home nowadays, as well as a shower room and a toilet complete the layout of this pleasant, functional ground floor.
First floor
A total of seven bedrooms, all with parquet flooring as well as a shower room and toilet, provide a significant sleeping capacity. These functional rooms feature quality fixtures and fittings: parquet flooring, electric shutters and new window frames, with double glazing. One of the bedrooms has a cathedral ceiling and a distant, eye-catching view of the sea.

The outbuildings

The workshop could also be used as a lock-up garage. The carport can take two cars.

The garden

The garden is planted with a wealth of outstanding species: traditional fruit trees as well as avocado, banana, Himalaya pine, sequoia, ginkgo-biloba and olive trees, climbing roses, passionflower, sallow thorn, agapanthus, rhododendron, Japanese flowering cherry, bamboo, hydrangea, heather, Canadian juneberry and other shrubs. Together they create an explosion of colours and fragrances from springtime through until the autumn.
The garden is set out around the 10x4 m swimming pool, heated via a heat pump.

The meadow

A delimited meadow, surrounded by fencing and housing four horse loose boxes, could accommodate animals and therefore completes this verdant haven. There is more than enough space for galloping or pecking.

The wood

The wood, composed of species such as beech and oak, was planted by the current owners some 20 years ago.

Our opinion

Nestling in peaceful countryside, this house is made unusual by its architecture and its layout. The flowering garden is filled with exotic plants and is itself an invitation to relax. The living areas are spacious, comfortable and practical. The swimming pool is well exposed to the sun and the meadow could accommodate animals. The sea, with its fine sandy beaches, is but 10 minutes away. The absolute peace and quiet and the unblemished natural setting form a perfect contrast to the local tourist and cultural activities that, in the height of the summer season, will have something to suit everyone.
