MORBIHAN, Brehan, Historical House to Renovate next to Nantes to Brest Canal with original bar, Morbihan, Brittany
POTENTIAL ALERT !! During the war this property was a small shop for the local inhabitants which then became a bar and being alongside the Nantes to Brest canal was ideally located. There are still people in the area who remember it being a bar and have many a story to tell. Even before all of this, the property was a forge serving horses that pulled the barges along the canal and to this day the tow path is extensively used by cyclists and walkers. Habitable in part, this property is waiting for the right person to come along and develop a new story to be told. The potential here is great and an opportunity not to be missed.
It comprises of a house offering an entrance hall with door to the left into the kitchen where you will find a feature, exposed stone wall with original open fireplace. From here there are doors into a bathroom and a spacious bedroom with enough space for at least two double beds. At the back of the entrance hall is a separate toilet and then to the right is a lounge. To the rear of the lounge is a door which leads to the attic area above the bar spurring out from the back of the house. Above the current living area is an attic, currently accessed by a fixed, folding ladder in the entrance hall, which having head height and already windows in place could be turned into a further two bedrooms and bathroom.
Stairs from the kitchen take you down to the area below where there are two cave areas to one side and to the other side you enter two rooms. The first has a toilet, which was used for the customers and then opens into another area with a door and two windows to the side which is where the horses were bought in to rest whilst waiting to be shod and then became the games room for the bar. Continuing through you are then greeted with the bar area itself which is just brimming with history and stories. At the back of this area, behind the stone bar, is the original fireplace for the forge complete with bellows.
The property sits on 15,170m2 of land and with the right creative mind could become something very special indeed. The village of Brehan, with all amenities, is around 5 minutes' drive away, the tourist attraction of the 'Abbey de Timadeuc' is also close by and the popular Chateau town of Josselin is just 20 minutes' drive. Taking all of this into account, this is an ideal opportunity for someone to perhaps create bed and breakfast or chambre d'hotes or even a cafe. How exciting to be working with a blank canvas.
