Here we have a three bedroom, semi detached stone built property, is in a friendly hamlet on the outskirts of the popular village of Guern. The village has a boulangerie, post office, cafe / bar etc. or a short drive will take you to Pontivy which has all amenities.
It sits on just over 1500m2 of gardens which are fenced and laid to lawn and incorporate work shops, a green house, vegetable plots, a sheltered terrace for eating al fresco in the warm summer months.
The entrance to the house is into a lovely bright kitchen / breakfast room (21m2). This quality modern kitchen has been well thought out and compliments the property well, with a central island and space for a family dining table. The high ceilings enhance the light airy feel of this room. From the kitchen, a few steps down through the original granite doorway, and you are in the large sitting room (35m2) which has original beams, a wooden floor and a wood-burning stove.
The stairs lead up from this room to a carpeted landing area, with glazed doors overlooking the garden. From the landing there are doors off to; a modern shower room with w.c., a double bedroom (10m2) with a built in store cupboard, and a rectangular bedroom which suits two single beds (9m2).
A second set of stairs takes you up to the master suite (20m2) into the eaves, with a feature stone gable wall, exposed A frames and wooden floors. There is built in storage, a separate dressing room and a modern ensuite shower room (6m2). From this room you have views over the gardens and the hamlet at the front of the house.
This property is in very good condition throughout. The owners have renovated the house to a high standard, whilst being sympathetic to the original features. The property further benefits, double glazing throughout, a septic tank which conforms to regulations (however mains drains are now in front of the property if you wish to connect). Oil filed radiators which are hard wired with timers (operating as a full central heating system) a good roof and manageable garden making this an ideal holiday cottage or equally a good family home.

The department of Morbihan in the south-eastern part of Brittany has a coastal area offering a micro-climate, the Morbihan Gulf on the south coast; where you will find the ancient town of Vannes. Morbihan is bordered by Cotes-d'Armor to the north, Ille -et-Vilaine to the east, Pays de la Loire to the southeast and Finistere to the west.
Morbihan's main activities are agriculture, fishing and tourism. Oysters are cultivated in the Gulf of Morbihan.
