Large 8 roomed farmhouse + gardens in Brittany hamlet for sale
Traditionally rendered stone renovated 'longere' house offering a mix of old character and modern living near a country village about 25 kilometers from Rennes.
The main house dates from 1890 and offers spacious family living that includes a large living room (43m²) with wood burner, modern staircase leading to mezzanine area, complete with tiled floor and exposed beams. A glassed sun room provides a dining area overlooking part of the garden and pond. The fitted kitchen leads to a laundry, bedroom, WC, the main entrance hallway, another bedroom with en-suite shower room and a second staircase.
The first floor provides two further bedrooms with en-suite facilities and a large mezzanine area. Heating throughout the house is either underfloor or by radiator powered by a vertical geothermal heating system installed 5 years ago. With the insulation properties of the house, this system offers a significantly reduced energy efficient reading that corresponds to French energy rating A+B. Hot water is also provided by either electric system or solar unit. A central vacuum system runs throughout the house.
The adjoining garage/barn area could offer further accommodation or studio over the two floors. A 12mt shipping container along the side of the house can be used as storage or converted into further accommodation or a studio. On the opposite side of the courtyard is a converted bread oven and extension that offers a self-contained guest house with living room and wood burner, kitchen and first floor bedroom. Many of the original features such as exposed timber and fireplace have been retained. An open fronted agricultural barn functions as a large workshop and storage area (110m²).
The house has gardens to the front with a pond and a separate fountain, and a timber deck with BBQ. The landscaped backyard has a second, covered BBQ area, an orchard of various fruit trees, and a vegetable garden. There is a well that belongs to the property, used for garden, pond and some of the WCs. Total land area is 4710m². Set in the countryside within the commune of Bedée, the area offers all amenities within easy reach including commerce, schooling and transport links both nationally and internationally.
