15th century Manoir 15 mins from beautiful coastline. Perfect large family home with business potential for BandB or Chambres d'Hôtes., Côtes-d'Armor, Brittany
This historical and striking manoir dates back to the fifteenth century and sits within 2.5 hectares of landscaped grounds featuring a large ornamental lake and several superb stone outbuildings. As you approach the property down the majestic tree-lined avenue, there is no escaping the wow factor of its beautiful stone facade and generous courtyard.
The manoir was built to impress, and it still conveys all the grandeur of a traditional country house, with the interior boasting some splendid and charming original features, including a beautifully carved wooden staircase from the days of Louis IV, imposing granite fireplaces, a large hand-built stone bread oven, huge rustic beams and original tiled and parquet flooring.
In addition to the large living rooms downstairs, there are 7 principal ensuite bedrooms with further potential to create additional living space in the annex and large stone outbuildings.
Being situated at the end of the long driveway, the setting is very private and secluded, but within easy walking distance of the local village which enjoys excellent amenities including a boulangerie, supermarket, medical centre and a weekly market for fresh produce.
This property would make an ideal large family home with great potential for a business activity for someone wishing to work from home or create a BandB, or chambres d'hôtes. The annex is particularly bright and would make a perfect atelier, studio or classroom for workshops. It could also be very easily turned into a gite. The stone outbuildings cover approx 300m2 and offer a huge space for conversion into a ferme auberge, additional accommodation or work space.
