5 bed charming character cottage with BandB potential. Superb coastal location just 5 mins from popular seaside resort of Binic., Côtes-d'Armor, Brittany
This character property is situated a short bike ride away from the buzzing seaside town of Binic, in a quiet countryside location but with all the amenities you need to hand. It has a genuine farmhouse feel to it, with plenty of authentic features such as the impressive, open granite fireplace in the living room, the large stone bread oven and a high, feature stone wall in the conservatory annex. There are 5 bedrooms in total, including one on the ground floor, and also a ground floor bathroom with separate WC; there is also good BandB potential with one upstairs bedroom reached by a separate staircase. The spacious conservatory has room for a long dining table, as well as banked seating around the wood-burning stove. This is a great gathering space, conveniently leading to the separate fitted kitchen with rear door to the garden. The outside south-facing terrace is equally spacious, and the charming enclosed garden looks out onto the surrounding fields. There is plenty of space to create a vegetable garden, build a chicken coop etc, and there are already lots of attractive trees, flowers and shrubs in place. The size of garden is a pleasantly manageable 1270m2. The property also benefits from mains drains. Location-wise the house is superbly placed to enjoy the nearby coastline with the popular seaside of Binic less than a 5 min drive or a short bike-ride away. Here you have a large weekly market, no shortage of bars and restaurants along the harbour, vast sandy beaches and live events throughout the summer including the hugely popular Festival du Blues. The major towns of Paimpol and Guingamp, and the city of Saint Brieuc are all between a 20-30 min drive, for commerce and rail services (including high-speed links to Paris).
