Our renovated house with a separate gîte is set in a countryside hamlet with good road access and amenities reasonably close to hand in Bourbriac which is 6km / 3.8 miles away. The property could be ideal for someone looking to generate rental income but could be equally suitable for two families or for a family with a relative who seeks independence but also the peace of mind of having family close by. Both properties have been tastefully renovated and are teeming with character. Spacious gardens, two outside terraces and some outbuildings - with the potential for development into further accommodation – complete the picture is this rural setting.
HOUSE 1 (91m²): Heating is provided by a wood-burning fire in the lounge and electric radiators. The open-plan, ground-floor accommodation is around 47m² in total and offers:
LOUNGE: decorated in pastel shades including floral wallpaper and one wall in some exposed stone painted with lime render. Some of the lounge furniture may be available subject to negotiation. The lounge / dining room is open – via an arch – into the kitchen.
DINING KITCHEN: offering four gas hobs, an electric oven, a pantry and a ‘Belfast’ ceramic sink. The kitchen has a traditional tiled floor, wood panelling and painted ceiling beams.
SEPARATE WC - located under the stairs and has a wash basin.
The upstairs accommodation is carpeted throughout with the exception of the bathroom which has a floor in solid teak laid over the original floor.
BEDROOM 1 (approx 15.3m² above a height of 1.8m with further floor space below that height): decorated in pastel shades with some exposed stone and beams.
BEDROOMS 2 & 3 (each approx 9.6m² > 1.8m): featuring exposed beams and stone walls painted with lime render.
SHOWER ROOM WITH WC (approx 4.4m² > 1.8m): with a shower cabin, a double wash basin mounted on a cupboard unit, a large mirror, a fitted cupboard and a heated towel rail.
HOUSE 2 (91m²):
The entrance door opens into a spacious living area of around 38m² whose striking feature is the large, original granite fireplace with a very modern pellet-burning fire. Heating in the other rooms is by electric radiators. A stone arch to the right of it is very pleasing on the eye and adds further character. This open-plan area includes a corner-kitchen equipped with four gas hobs, an electric oven, a fitted freezer and space to install a refrigerator. This house also offers:
GROUND FLOOR BEDROOM (approx 11.6m²): with a carpeted floor, a built-in cupboard and some shelving.
GROUND FLOOR SHOWER ROOM & WC (approx. 4.4m²): featuring a modern, multi-jet shower, a heated towel rail, a good size wash basin mounted on its drawer unit, a wall mirror and a WC.
A folding ladder gives access to a further small room equipped with electrical sockets and recessed ceiling lighting. This room has patio doors which open onto a large, south-facing terrace behind the house and which enjoys a view over the garden.
BEDROOM 2 (approx. 14.7m²): with a carpeted floor, exposed beams and a large chimney-breast emanating from the ground floor original fireplace.
BEDROOM 3 (approx. 9m²): with a carpeted floor and some fitted shelves.
BATHROOM (approx 3.7m²): offering a bath with over-bath shower, a wash basin, a heated towel rail and a wall mirror.
LOFT: offering a good amount of storage space, the loft has already undergone partial conversion which could be finished to provide a games room, an office etc.
The property has a sizeable pebbled forecourt and a gate opening onto the country lane and its large, lawned, enclosed garden stretches from alongside the forecourt around the side and back of the house and includes several fruit trees and a ‘sunken’ trampoline designed to be at the same level as the surrounding grass. Between the two houses is a terrace on a level below the garden – ideal for a summer barbecue - and ‘house 2’ has its own large, south-facing terrace with a view over the garden.
A barn of around 48m² offers ample space for storing garden equipment, logs etc and offers the potential for conversion into further accommodation. On the left-hand side of ‘house 2’ is a further outbuilding which serves as a workshop and for storage. It has a concrete floor, is partially boarded-out at loft level and has electrical sockets and lighting. To the left of ‘house 1’ is the shell of a former outbuilding which could be reconstructed if required or serve as a further outdoor terrace.
