Farmhouse/Smallholding, La Landec, Côtes-d'Armor, Brittany
For me, this fantastic house offers pretty much the perfect package. It has the lot! Great appeal from the outside, packed with character inside, but with modern touches & loads of space. A project if you want it, end of a hamlet setting, with it's own land all around. 5 minutes from a host of wonderful villages, 10 minutes to the Medieval joy, that is Dinan, & only 15 minutes to a selection of beaches. If you are "ticking boxes" you must have a lot of ticks by now?!Inside the house is light, & bright, thanks to windows, & glazed doors, front, & back. The first room, the kitchen, is modern in style, fully fitted with a induction hob. there is a double height ceiling, & exposed beams. Into the first of 2 lounges, both featuring granite, inglenook fireplaces. A feature of this area, they add presence to any room, & of course, huge warmth! Large glazed doors along 1 side, bring light into both these rooms. Next is the ground floor bedroom, featuring yet another inglenook, & a door out onto the side patio, a view of the fish pond. A modern shower room, & handy back kitchen, complete the ground floor rooms.Up the wooden stairs, off, of the airy landing, are 3 more double bedrooms, a bathroom, & another room, that would make a large office.The house benifits from double glazing throughout. There is a new, geothermic underfloor heating system, & free water from the well.Outside, at the edge of the plot, is another house for renovating. The walls, & roof are solid. It faces away from the main house, over open countryside. It would make a superb rental.The land is all around the house; flat, with flower beds, a vegetable area, fruit trees, & large lawns. There is a large hanger, and a couple of stone barns. The house is the last one in a little hamlet, just on the edge of the small village. It faces away from the hamlet, so feels very private.Saint Maudez is in a wonderful area, a 5 minute drive will take you to a host of lovely villages, such as Corseul,Plancoet, Plelan le Petit, you will always find something going on, whatever time of the year¨. If you want somewhere larger, the superb, medieval town of Dinan is just 10 miutes away¨.So there you have it, a wonderful house, in a superb location, all boxes ticked I think.
