A 17th century, spacious house
in one of the Morbihan department’s historic towns
Rochefort-en-Terre, MORBIHAN brittany 56220 FR

Location

30 minutes from Vannes and the Gulf of Morbihan, in a lively village, renowned for its history as well as its arts and crafts. Standing on a rocky promontory, a strategic location between the hinterland and the sea further south, the village has become a place that visitors just cannot miss over the centuries. Although it has some local shops, most amenities are just a few minutes away in the neighbouring communes. The nearest train station, 25 minutes away, provides links to Rennes and Paris, respectively taking 35 minutes and 2 hours 35 minutes.

Description

In a commune with lively narrow streets where pedestrians rule, this house stands in the peace and quiet on the edge of the village. On the corner of a square and a small street on the south side, several separate entrances provide access to the property.

The house

This house is constructed from granite under a slate roof, enhanced with an arched dormer. Built in the 17th century, it spans three levels and a cellar. The main facade features two series of two windows, framed with dressed stone surrounds. The arched entrance door is topped with an oculus. Laid out in a V-shape, it comprises several areas facing the four points of the compass.


Ground floor
Reached via the main entrance hall, a first lounge, with lime-rendered walls, parquet flooring, a fireplace and exposed ceiling beams, leads to two communicating areas, with paved flooring. One, a reception and music room, is illuminated via a large picture window, letting in copious amounts of light, whilst the second has a large lightwell. A vast kitchen, a utility room, a stairway and a toilet complete this floor. A main spiral stairway, at the intersection of three main rooms, goes upstairs.
First floor
The main stairway goes to another lounge, with a fireplace and a cathedral ceiling. This room is looked down on by a mezzanine area on one side. On the other, the lounge communicates at right angles with a second room, a dining room, also under a cathedral ceiling. Maximum advantage has been taken of the space such that residents can fully benefit from the height of the ceiling. Two night-time areas, with exposed ceiling beams, shower room and toilets, complete each end of this level. The floors are laid with strip pattern parquet flooring. One of the bedrooms provides access to a vast, unoverlooked terrace, enabling residents to make the most of the outside.
Second floor
Reached via a stairway in one of the bedrooms, a first area under the rafters is extended by a study area on a mezzanine overlooking the lounge on the first floor.
Cellar
A cellar reached via the main stairway completes this house.

Our opinion

The exploration begins as of the entrance to the house. The depth of the premises is concealed from the outside and the vast upstairs rooms, enhanced by the development of cathedral ceilings, exude a welcoming feeling of space and light. The private, hidden terrace, reached solely via the first floor, offers an airy, unexpected extension.
