Spectacular river location for this super little 'fixer-upper' 2-bed cottage in gorgeous countryside just 10 mins from Paimpol and the sea!, Côtes-d'Armor, Brittany
This is a very special project in a superb location - a quaint 2-bed cottage in a stunning valley, less than a minute's walk from a spectacular river setting and all the amenities you need in the nearby towns of Pontrieux (5 mins) and Paimpol (10 mins). The house itself is a perfect 'fixer-upper' if you're looking for a project where you can truly put your personal stamp on a property and make it your own. The downstairs consists of a living room where there is a connecting flue for a wood-burning stove if you wanted to add one; fitted kitchen; bathroom with WC and utility room. The wooden staircase leads to a small landing with double bedrooms either side. Both bedrooms have classic 'chien-assis' windows looking out over the garden and surrounding countryside. Outside, there is a small porch which is a real suntrap given the south-facing aspect, and a terrace with steps down into a good-sized gently sloping garden of 880m2. The gate at the bottom of the garden opens out onto a track which leads to the river Trieux (literally about 50 metres away) and the Trieux valley. It's a truly breath-taking spot, and offers beautiful walking paths, without a car in earshot, along the impressively broad tidal river. For amenities you have the pretty character town of Pontrieux less than 5 mins by car, or the larger more cosmopolitan harbour town of Paimpol (10 mins) with its wide range of boutiques, restaurants, lively weekly markets and cultural events such as the famous 'Chant Marin' festival throughout the summer.
