near to Pontivy and Guerlédan Lake in the middle of Brittany
The north and south coasts of Brittany are but an hour’s drive away. Just a few kilometres from Pontivy and its many amenities, this property is near to the canal going from Nantes to Brest. It is set in the countryside but a village, with less than 2,000 inhabitants and local shops, is nearby.
The manor house
Constructed from granite stone blocks, this manor house has a gable slate roof featuring two roof dormers, with arched pediments, and skylights.
A door, topped with a slate awning, opens into a living room. The beams are exposed. A wood-burning stove heats this room. An adjoining kitchen precedes a dining room and an area, currently in use as a study, with a cathedral ceiling. The last two rooms each have a door leading outside.
A stairway goes up from the living room to a landing, leading to a bedroom, with an adjoining shower room, a machine room and another shower room. A recent oak wood stairway goes up from the study to another bedroom, with parquet flooring, an exposed roofing framework and a shower room.
This level is taken up by another two bedrooms and a toilet.
The long, traditional farmhouse
A long, traditional farmhouse, following on from the manor house and spanning two levels, is constructed from local stone blocks. Its gable roof is covered with slate and features a hanging roof dormer. This long, traditional farmhouse communicates with the manor house via a door on the ground floor.
A semi-circular arched door opens into a large living room with an open-plan fitted kitchen. The room, with parquet flooring and exposed beams, is heated by a closed-hearth fire installed in the fireplace. A wooden stairway goes upstairs. An opening provides access to a bedroom, with a bathroom and toilet. A laundry room area at the end of this farmhouse can be reached via the outside. A stairway goes up to the first floor of the farmhouse and a storage room.
A landing gives access to two bedrooms, two shower rooms as well as a workshop area.
The guest house
Set at right angles and facing the long, traditional farmhouse, this 2-storey guest house is constructed from local stone. Its gable roof is covered with slate. The ground floor is reached via a door, flanked by two windows and topped with a roof dormer. It is also possible to enter the house via a south-facing terrace. This level comprises a living room, with an open-plan kitchen, as well as a shower room and toilet. Two bedrooms are laid out upstairs.
An open barn behind the manor house is used as for storage purposes and as a woodshed. A slight distance way, partially concealed by vegetation, the ruins of an old building stand next to a 9x4 m, above-ground, heated swimming pool, surrounded by an enclosed wooden terrace.
This property is a pleasant, relaxing haven where peace and quiet rule, a starting point as well as a welcome stopover by the riverside. The immediate surroundings are ideal for exploring hiking paths on foot, by bike or by boat. The manor house and its outbuildings have been very successfully renovated. A country property, it is ready to envisage a tranquil future, its new owners able to move in straightaway either on a permanent basis or just for short stays.
