Full Description

REDUCED in price - Here we have a stunning 4 Bed Detached French Longere with good road access, offering Equestrian Use with optional purchase of storage Hangar & Large Workshop.

This delightful Longere offering family accommodation is full of character in which craftsman-made wood fittings and beams are in evidence throughout.

It has both an individual garage and a separate four-car garage which lends itself to possible conversion to stables for equestrian use and there is an additional outbuilding in the form of a large workshop (500m2) which is available to purchase separately if required, giving the possibility of business use for a storage business or similar.

The longere is offered on a plot of approximately 6,000m2 (if the workshop is not required), is gated and lies just a stone's throw from the centre of Plestan with quick access to the arterial RN12 dual carriageway (Brest to Rennes) and just 20 minutes or so from the north coast resort of Pleneuf-Val-Andre.

It features double glazing throughout, wall and roof insulation in rock wool and has dual central heating systems of fuel oil and wood which can be operated separately or together.

A good number of quality furniture pieces including dining furniture, lounge furniture, beds and bedroom furniture can be purchased by negotiation with the vendors.

The department of Cotes d'Armor is the northern most department in the Region of Brittany, with the English Channel to the north, Ille-et-Vilaine to the east, Morbihan to the south and Finistere to the west it is a sunshine gem.

The picturesque Émeraude Coast looks north to the English Channel and is packed with charming seaside resorts and old fishing villages. Most of the towns of the interior were founded in the Middle Ages. The department's southern half is crossed by the Noires Mountains that run west to east with rivers emptying to the south into the Bay of Biscay and to the north into the Channel.

Along the coast, fishing was once important but is now secondary to the cultivation of fruit, oats, potatoes and wheat and of course tourism.
