Genuine Medieval Castle with great views . 1 ha

This is a genuine Breton 1400s castle located in the countryside between Rennes and Vitré sold with a plot of approximately 1 ha.  The building is divided into two parts including a very comfortable house that has already been renovated to a high standard.

The house is composed on the ground floor of a large living room/kitchen, an entrance hall a utilities room and a toilet, and on the 1st floor of a landing, 3 bedrooms, a toilet and a bathroom with a shower.  There is a large attic with good head room which has a “chambre de bonne” in it.  The house is in very good condition with tiled floors downstairs and wooden floors upstairs.  The rooms are light and spacious. The old fireplaces have been preserved by the renovation. The present owner has done a great deal to economise on energy bills using double glazing and internal wooden shutters.  The house is heated using electric heaters and a geothermal heat pump.

The part to be renovated is composed of 4 large rooms with some magnificent beams, stone fireplaces, wrought iron window cages and two turrets. The outside of the building also has some very old stone features. The present owner has kept the building in a very good state of repair and maintenance. The roof over the whole building is relatively new (photos of the underside of the roof available on request) and the part to be renovated has been protected from the elements and humidity by appropriate measures. The attic has some very old terra cotta tiles on the floor and old stone fireplaces.  The building enjoys a very good view of the surrounding countryside from both sides.

Also sold with this property is a stone outbuilding which was used as a garage by the present owner and which could easily house two cars, and approximately 1 ha of land. This would make an excellent restoration project. There is a very comfortable house to retire to after a hard day’s work and no pressing deadlines due to the present owner’s foresight in protecting the house. Well worth a visit !
