Good Thursday morning! A pretty former watermill on five acres of land, converted to a cozy cottage idyll!
I’ve had this house bookmarked for some time. The price is a bit high for the area considering the size of the home, but the large parcel of land, high quality of the renovation, and overwhelming charm make up for it, I think! I’d love to transport myself here for the weekend and spend my days floating in that little rowboat, reading books with a big hat and a thermos of tea, enjoying the warm sunshine and cool shade. Such a dream!
From the listing on Leggett:
A little bit of paradise for water and nature lovers! This pretty former watermill is idyllically set in a peaceful and private but not remote location, surrounded by 19320m2 of land which has an orchard, pasture, 2 lakes, a hanger, a small stone bergerie and greenhouse. The house is sold fully furnished.
A well maintained little lane leads from the nearby hamlet to this lovely property which has been lovingly renovated, this converted watermill compromises:
Large kitchen (22.60m2) with wood burner with stunning views of the lakes and land
Lounge (31.46m2)/dinning room (14.32m2)
Stairs leading to the First floor:
3 Bedrooms (19.86m2, 21.42m2, 13.96m2)
Also attached to the house is another room currently used as a utility room. The little stone bergerie (6m x 4m) has water, electricity and telephone so has the potential to be converted. The hanger (6.5m x 10.5m) is ideal for storage and has a workshop at one end with a door separating it from the hanger.
The Nante Brest canal is close by as is the historic Abbey de Bon Repos and the Lac du Guerledan. The property is situated only a stones throw from a pretty and vibrant small town which have most amenities, the larger town of Rostrenen is only 15 minutes, with good connections to the ferry ports of St Malo and Roscoff as well as the airports at Rennes, Quimper, Brest and Dinard.
