Item specifics

Country: France Property Type: Farmhouse
Location: Ille et Villaine, Brittany, France Private / Estate agent: Private

Located 30kms South of Mont St Michel ,35kms north of Rennes and 35 kms from Ferry port Saint Malo. In the country 2 kms from Rimou and a 1/4 mile from the nearest neighbour.
South facing and set in about 3 acres. It has a detached stone barn that would make a three bedroom house, with an outdoor dining area . Large kitchen (26ft x 23ft) with fireplace, Large Salon with fireplace (23 x 23 ft). Utility area.There are 4 bedrooms, but they are large (26 feet x 23/ 23 feet x 23/20 x 20 / 15 x 23), two staircases, two bathrooms and a separate shower. It looks like granite but we were told that it is a highly compressed sandstone which gives it a nice colour, it is certainly as hard as granite
It was rewired and re plumbed, new zinc gutters and most of the roof relaid . We had it up for sale for Euro350,000 a while back. We have not really made our mark on it since doing the major works and it has the feel of a blank canvass, as someone put it.
It is a collection of 3 longere. There is a large functional open barn that you can see at one end. We used a lot of architectural bits when doing it and that gives it a character of it's own. It is not a completely finished product there are things that can be done or left depending how you are. The two windows on the front down stairs are servicable but if you want to then they would need replacing. We had new windows and oak surrounds made for the upstairs. The property has a (Foss mort) which is a tank that has to emptied yearly by our local farmer so if you wanted a septic tank (we haven't for 22 years) then that's about  euros 6k. I has a great feel to it but we don't use it so here it is. Ask any questions you like. We would be interested in a trade for what ever you might have and the sale would have to be through a French notaire. Contact Paul on 07711304927 or through the listing. They call this type of property a "Coeur de Ferme" as it is set in own land, it dates from about 400 years, the major part being late 19th cent. It was thatched at one time. There is a bread oven at the top of the field and a well that can be seen in the photo.
Ebay will probably take off a few of the photos for being two small a size so please ask for photos if you have an interest.
