Wonderfully pretty, immaculate five/six bedroom family home of neo-Breton style with potential for hugh B&B peacefully located minutes from all amenities in the country town of Gourin, surrounded by beautiful easily maintained gardens and close to the Chateau Tronjoly established 479A.D. with its new Salle des Fete, park and lake. Only 30 minutes to Quimper and 45 minutes from the pretty seaside towns of southern Brittany, this home is on the market at a price substantially below market value. Private, direct sale means no agent commission !
This home is within 5 min.walk of the magnificent 18th century Chateau Tronjoly with its shady park, lake, old mill and regular events taking place all through the year. Also within walking distance is the beautiful church, a supermarket, lake, new pharmacy, creperie restaurant, gendarmerie, fire station and all the other town facilities like five boulangeries, banks, new medical centre,etc. As such, the potential for a very large B&B or Chambres d’Hotes business is tremendous plus parking for six vehicles, caravans or boats.
Department 56 - Morbihan - has two olympic-sized swimming pools in all of this huge county! One of these pools is about 6 minute walk from our front-door !
Gourin is currently undergoing a total renovation of the town centre with the help of a large EU grant, and will soon benefit from this rejuvenation. Buying property now, while prices are still low, is an extremely good investment for the future. Purchases before April, 2019 will entitle owners to become residents. The vendors are highly motivated to sell.
From the beautiful front gardens, filled with bees and butterflys, the impressive entrance way leads to a spacious and light-filled marble-tiled hallway and an imposing marble stairway to the first floor.
To the front of the house, benefiting from two large windows overlooking the garden views is the well equipped sunny kitchen with white painted wooden cabinets and a butcher’s block, and plenty of space for family meals, ideal for a busy family.
The hallway opens on to the “salle du jour” or sitting room, a generously sized light filled room (6m x 4m) with two french doors to the front patio and garden. The dining room offers views of rear gardens.
The study and downstairs washroom are also located on the ground floor.
A superb feature of this house is the ground floor master bedroom of generous size, with its large, ensuite bathroom and separate toilet, and beautiful aspects to the garden. Perfect for the disabled.
On the first floor are found four beautifully presented bedrooms, two double and two single. Built-In cupboards to one of the double rooms and one single bedroom. The second shower room/toilet is on this floor, as well as a large, unfinished room which has the potential to form another ensuite bedroom, large study or second sitting room or another bedroom which has not yet been finished. Making in total six bedrooms.
Returning to the semi-basement we find a garden room and a generous games room as well as a utility room housing the boiler and storage area plus a wine cellar. Indoor parking for two vehicles also forms part of the basement area of the house.
The house is on mains drainage, electricity, internet, telephone and water and benefits from the town utilities. It has full eco-oil central heating (94%efficiency) and plentiful hot water at all times. Well insulated, the house keeps warm in winter and cool in summer, with no need for air conditioning. Details of taxes and running costs, as well as the energy figures can be supplied to serious viewers. Opening the house as a B&B is a simple matter requiring only a notification to the mayor of your intention to rent rooms. This house is also ideal for a growing family, with its flexible sleeping accommodation, downstairs master suite and generous living space, located in an easily accessible and delightful part of Brittany.
No wind turbines allowed here. No hunting allowed. No thru traffic. No barking dogs. No noise. No crime. No refugees. No forest fires. No floods. Only peace, quiet and bees and butterflies and birdsong.
Further private driveway parking for four vehicles, caravans, boats.
Utilities: Town water, town trash collection and town sewage, electric hot water(new 2015), fuel oil heating (new 2007) - just serviced, 12k 3 phase Edf electricity, France Telecom telephone, 20 Mb Orange Internet connect, satellite Tv dish.
Gourin has seven schools though few dormitory places for students. It also has no hotels, chambre d'hote's, B&B's or AirBnB's, so a business opportunity awaits, or a buy-to-let investor will find many takers for lettings, as we have discovered.
Price inclusive of lights, fitted carpets and most curtains, but excludes heating fuel, taxes and legal costs.
E.U. Funding allows a redesign of our town-centre in a mediteranean style (approved 2016). This has commenced and our new town centre will be ready by Christmas,
Morbihan is surely one of the most varied departments in France, with prehistoric monuments, ancient pilgrim trails and important historical towns and castles standing in contrast to the ever popular ports and villages, beaches and islands along the coast and around the Gulf of Morbihan.This region of southern Brittany is definitely a parish with something for everyone.
Brest and Dinan airports are near as are Roscoff and St.Malo car ferry services.
Our footpath to the LeClerc's supermarche is a few minutes away.

I live in France and spent many years looking for the right house knowing what I know now your home is a total bargain especially given the area it is in. There must be a very good reason to sell it and I hope you do. There is also a massive potential for this property. Good Luck
