Property Description

An additional attached 3.86Ha (nearly 10 acres) is available with the house for a total price of €299,000

Swallow Farm, a sympathetically renovated, modernised, period stone built farmhouse, with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and lots of features including exposed stone walls, beams and fireplace.

Don't expect perfect 90 degree angles or ultra modern glossy units in this home. It's not perfect, and yet, with its hand hewn beams and artisan lime plastered walls it has the authentic period feel.

The large 240sqm property has double glazing throughout, real slate tiled ground floor, solid wooden floors upstairs, large open plan living space, wood-fired central heating system, fitted thermostatically controlled electric radiators, fitted kitchen with solid ash fronted cabinets, kitchen fitted Morso wood stove, satellite tv and broadband internet connection. The house has just been freshly decorated throughout. Many of the beams have been sanded back and limewashed.

Original materials, reclaimed period materials or natural materials have been used wherever possible.

Secure lockable gates lead to a large gravel driveway, with parking for 6-8 cars. About an acre of pasture immediately surrounds the house with the rest being mixed woodland. There is also a small orchard of young fruit trees. A large summer house / shed (17sqm) which would make a great workshop or office. There is a modern septic tank, so no expensive updating costs required. There is also a well.

The property enjoys a south-west aspect so the patio has sunlight all day and right into the evenings.

Unlike many period properties this home has high ceilings making for large, light and airy rooms.

The house and land are all in a single rectangular block, unlike many smallholdings in France which are spread out and split up into small parcels of land.

With 65sqm of floor space to convert in the attached barn, there is plenty of potential for further projects and expansion for either a self-contained house, extended living space for the 2 largest end bedrooms or 2 extra bedrooms to extend to a huge 300sqm home.
An attached barn gives you a very high likelihood for planning permission, whereas with separate outbuildings, planning may only be given to farmers.
With the hectare of land, you also have potential for any smallholding, woodland or leisure / tourism business.

There are also buildable plots of land (certifcate d'urbanisme) around the house and within it's property boundary giving you the option to build extra annexes or gites if required.

The house could be suitable for bed and breakfast / chambre d’hote, and all of the rooms have king size beds. The largest downstairs bedroom has its own separate entrance and access to downstairs toilet / shower room, so is ideal for this option.

There are miles of off-road paths all around this property which could lend itself to walking, riding and cycling holidays. A local fishing lake is only 2 minutes away.

The department Morbihan is known for its temperate micro-climate with long warm summers and relatively mild winters. This makes it a great growing region which would be ideal for small holders, gardeners or agri-tourism.

Both the north and south coasts are less than an hour drive away.

The village of Evriguet is only a couple of minutes away with a cafe/bar, marie and village hall with community events.
5 minutes up the road is a British run bar; Le Manoir with lots of regular evenings and events.
Guilliers is 8 minutes away which has a school, chemist, butchers, tabac, post office, etc.

The picturesque Lac au Duc, with its sandy beaches and water sports is only 20 mins away.
Lovely country location but only 12 minutes from all amenities at Mauron and 25 minutes from the beautiful, historic riverside town of Josselin, with its many restaurants, art and craft shops. The larger town of Ploermel is only 22 minutes away.

The fast TGV train from Rennes can deliver you to Paris in just over an hour and a half.

- Saint Malo ferry port (serving Portsmouth and Jersey): 1.25hrs. 90km / 55 miles.
- Roscoff ferry port (serving Plymouth and Cork): 2hrs. 170km / 105 miles.
- Dinard airport : 1 hour. 75km / 46 miles.
- Rennes airport : 50 minutes. 60 km / 37 miles.
