REDUCED in price - Large and Tastefully Renovated Country House with A 2 Bed Guest Gite set in beautiful surroundings not overlooked with 3,200m2 gardens providing both a family home and income.
Detached 19th century farmhouse situated amidst beautiful countryside just outside the busy town of Chateauneuf-du-Faou in Finistere in the North West corner of France. The farmhouse is set back from the banks of the River Aulne which forms part of the Nantes-Brest Canal. It has been imaginatively restored and converted to provide luxurious accommodation in the form of the 3 bedroom main house and a 2 bedroom self-contained cottage which has its own private small pool.
The house and cottage sit on a 3,200 square metre plot at the end of a quiet lane which leads down to the river. A line of mature pine trees runs down one side of the gardens which contain mature trees, flower beds, rockeries, grasses and an established vegetable garden.
NOTE: There is the possibility of a short term tenant for the first 12 months, from the 1st of April 2016 in the gite, which will give the new owners an immediate income.

The department of Finistere has a feeling of being carved out of the earth by the sea and is the wildest area of Brittany, it is also the most western of all French departments. The name Finistere comes from the Latin phrase 'finis terrae', meaning 'land's end'.
It has the English Channel to the north, Cotes-d'Armor and Morbihan to the east, the Bay of Biscay to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the west.
Quimper, the department's capital, is located to the south and has a distinctive Breton character just like all the main towns such as Brest, Chateaulin, Morlaix and Quimper. Over a third of the area is covered with forest, moors and scrubland.
Along the coast, farmers divide their time between commercial fishing and working their small farms. To see the Fish-markets, Douarnenez is worth a visit as is Brest which is on the west coast and is also a major naval port.
