French manor for sale in Ille-et-Vilaine department, Ille-et-Vilaine, Brittany
Ref.3970 : French manor for sale in Ille-et-Vilaine department.
The manor and its park of more than one hectare are located in Rennes, one of the most attractive and dynamic French metropolis. You will have immediate access to all the services, activities and infrastructures provided by the Rennes metropolis. The local attractiveness has contributed to the urbanization and its corollary - the development of the road network - which are now part of the direct environment of this property.
Located about fifteen minutes from downtown Rennes (Place de l'Opéra, République, Sainte Anne, etc.), the property's surface area and its wooded park constitute an appreciable island of greenery and a significant asset in this unique setting. A balance between greenery and city that deserves special attention for buyers who are planning an urban life while benefiting from a substantial plot of land with trees.
This manor house, with a charming turret dating from the 17th century, has been successively extended over the centuries. A complete and recent renovation (2020) will allow you to take full advantage of the 450sqm proposed and distributed as follows:
On the first floor: a large entrance hall - with independent toilets - leading to a large living room with bow window and a breathtaking view of the garden, a dining room and alcove. The open kitchen is adjacent to the dining room. A technical room (boiler room) serves as a storage room. An independent reception area has been created for the reception of guests. An outside parking lot - under the trees - for the reception of the customers' cars has been created for this purpose.
On the first floor: a corridor leads to a children's bedroom, a bathroom, a parental space (bedroom with shower room and toilet, dressing room). The corridor continues and gives access to 3 large bedrooms of nearly 20 m² each. A door opens to the common space for guests (kitchenette and large dining room).
On the second floor: 5 bedrooms with shower room and toilet for each of them. The access to a first room of the turret is done by a staircase (part to be refreshed). A second staircase gives access to the upper platform of the turret: a cocoon to be renovated with 4 oeil-de-boeuf windows and a clear view on the surroundings.
The property has been designed to reconcile professional life (development of a guest activity) and personal life in the same place. The future purchasers will be able to optimize the activity as well as to put an end to it in order to take advantage of it for family purposes.
The land represents a total surface of 2.96 acres (1,2 ha) and offers a green, pleasant and nicely wooded setting. The wood is classified, the area is recognized natural.
Different species are planted in the park of the manor (beech, oak, blue cedar...) including a remarkable 400 year old cork oak. Flowerbeds and shrubs bring beautiful touches of color to this privileged environment.
The site of an old tennis court is still visible and can legitimately be the subject of a rehabilitation project.
The land, in one piece, is not marked by any easement.
