REDUCED in price - Huge town house on 4 floors, works needed to make this into a superb property with income potential.
This 4 storey town house with 514m2 walled garden outside was refurbished in the late 1970's to a very high standard, but then due to a change in the owners' circumstances was never lived in.
It has sadly deteriorated over time but due to the sizeable accommodation offered, but this property still lends itself to becoming a B&B, or simply a great family home.
On entering the house from ground level, there is a good size hallway with attractive stairwell linking all four floors and doors off to; a large sitting room which runs the length of the house and overlooks both the street and garden. A study and a w.c. A fitted kitchen, in which the cupboards and appliances are in a pretty much unused condition - but just a little dated in style.
Taking the stairs down to the lower ground /garden level and there's a 'groovy' second sitting room with fireplace and large doors opening out onto the garden, as well as a utility room and wine cave.
On the first floor: from the landing the doors lead into; three double bedrooms, a bathroom with separate w.c. and a study which has now lost its' floor.
On the second level: two further bedrooms and an amazing 'retro' bathroom which has almost found itself back in fashion, almost!
The walled rear garden is a good size, with large gates giving off road vehicular access.
Also in the gardens are the stone walls of an old building which could be bought back into use perhaps. Works are required on the roof as there has been some water damage, some damp issues and some floors to fix.
This house does benefit from mains drainage, some double glazing and shutters to windows and oil fired heating and off road parking.
Situated in the picturesque town of Guemene-sur-Scorff, steeped in history and aptly named a “Petite City of Character”.
Notes on Condition of Property:
The house is in a charming town with all amenities.
It was entirely renovated to a very high standard in the late 1970's, but has now been empty for a number of years.
A local builder has visited and given a ball park figure (please bear in mind this costing is priced as if he and his professional team where employed to do all aspects of the build to a high specification) so for full renovation, including roof repairs (a few of the front roof timbers will need attention, new tiles and probably best to re-build the dormers), re-wire, plumbing (it is on mains drainage) and floor repairs. He says to allow between €20k to €25k for each floor.
It is on a junction of two roads with the garden to the rear, so not exactly a very tranquil location. That is the only nuisance in the surroundings, other than that it is just other similar looking residential houses.
You are within walking distance of the town centre where you have a variety of shops, a weekly market, and only 35mins drive to the south coast sandy beaches.
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. Tourism is popular along the Morbihan coastline and in the medieval towns and villages dotted around the countryside. Carnac is the French version of Stonehenge with stones laid in concentric circles by an ancient people.
These Megaliths and Dolmens and Menhirs are believed to have been placed there between 3500 and 1800 B.C and you see their symbols everywhere. Attractive Property in the area is easy to find with lovely Farmhouses, Water mills and sleepy Cottages in abundance.
