This is a large, light filled property standing in extensive and well planted grounds of 6950m2
There is easy access to Guingamp and Callac by road and a local train.
The house stands at the edge of the village and has extensive views over the local countryside. It lies East/ West so that the sun encircles the house all day long. With one large and one small marble terrace to sit and watch the sunrise and sunset.
Based upon a Neo-Breton design the house has many features that make it far from typical: It has a large modern open-plan kitchen / séjour with back kitchen /utility, and a lounge which lies across the back of the property with three double French Windows leading to the full width rear marble terrace.
There are two further rooms downstairs that can be bedrooms, study, or extra sitting rooms….or a Granny annexe. There is a ground-floor shower room with basin and bidet plus a separate WC with a hand basin. The first floor has three bedrooms, each easily taking a double bed.
A large bathroom with a bath, separate shower, and twin basin vanity unit. There is a separate WC also, with a hand basin.
There is a further, large room which can be a Master Bedroom, games room, workroom (as now) or second lounge. It has a large, insulated attic space beside it that could be incorporated – already with double glazed window and shutter.
The whole of the first floor could be repurposed to make a separate apartment, a granny flat or for a business Air B&B / Chambre D’Hôte for example.
A complete basement is accessed by stairs from the ground floor.
It has a dedicated boiler room for the oil-fired central heating /laundry room as well as the hot water cylinder, a closed oil tank room and a further room with a door that can be used as a wine cellar or for food storage, or even a workshop.
The rest of the space is open plan and accommodates two cars. There are two full-size garage doors, one electrically operated by a remote control that can be placed in the car.
The house is extremely versatile in its layout so you can use how you wish – to suit your family’s needs.
There is full central heating with each radiator thermostatically controlled.
The lounge has a new wood burning ‘Stand-Alone’ insert fire with a closed, glass door – there is plenty of wood in and around the garden!
On the ground floor, all the rooms have high efficiency double glazing with electric shutters and the windows and doors have a tilt facility for ventilation as desired.
The windows on the first floor are also high efficiency double glazing with tilt facility. Solar shutter, to the attic window.
The garden is easy maintenance with mature trees and a spectacular planting of camellias and
rhododendrons giving colour from December through to the end of May.
You’ll find some feature stone troughs from an old farm, a non-functioning decorative well, also saved from a former farm. Most of the back garden is laid to grass with a vegetable plot and poly-tunnel. There are also a pair of wildlife ponds. The front of the property has a newly planted heather bed as well as well-established hydrangeas. The front of the property, along the road edge, has mature trees giving a variety of seasonal colour.
The property has a tarmac drive that leads to the double garage in the sous-sol as well as
sweeping on to the far end of the garden. There is also a path running around the perimeter of the whole garden giving a pleasant 500metre
