You arrive at the hamlet of Kerauffret down a country lane off of the D22.
With just 4 other residents, all very friendly and amicable, it is a very peaceful setting.
It is 1 mile outside the village of Senven Lehart with St.Connan and its lake, also one mile away.
Quintin is 12 minutes by car and has all ameneties, Guingamp 20 minutes one way and Corlay 20 minutes the other way. St.Brieuc is 30 minutes drive, as are the nearest beaches.
For port and airports, St,Malo is 1 ½ hrs, Roscoff 1hr 10. Brest is 1hr 15, Rennes, 1½ hrs and Dinard 1hr 15.
Entering the gravelled driveway, into the courtyard of the ancient farm, you have grassed areas to your left and right with shrubs and trees, a large planted boarder.
The entire plot is 1 acre.
The cottage, which is currently let to a tenant, is the first building you see.
A very quaint 2 bedroom cottage completely professionally renovated throughout from the roof down to what was an earth floor.
Full detailed description and photos can be found at www.freewebs.com/kerauffret.
The letting of this is currently for 1 year, this can be extended after that date but there is also an agreement for the tenant to be given 2 months notice to vacate if a new proprietor so wishes, but, it does ensure an annual income of almost 5000€ and the tenant is responsible for electricity, water, habitation tax etc. meaning the cottage pays for itself with as well as giving some income.
If required, this can remain fully furnished by further agreement.
Between the cottage and the main house there is a huge barn, with 2 floors, the footprint of which is approx 70m2. This has windows front and back with a spiral staircase and is currently used for storage.
Opposite the main house is a hangar which provides covered parking for up to 3 vehicles.
As you arrive at the house, the front door is central to the house with windows each side and a canopy over the door.
On entering, you come in to a 5x2.5m entrance hall with a made to measure double turn staircase straight ahead leading to the first floor.
A small landing leads to:
Measuring 5x4.6m is a very good sized room.
It has a dorma window overlooking the view to the front of the property and a velux window to the rear view across the garden and fields beyond.
This is also a good size room measuring 5x3.8m. This room has an internal and then an outer door leading to the original staircase on the outside of the house. A dorma window again, overlooks the front of the property
Both of these have dorma windows overlooking the front of the property and bedroom 1 has a velux to the rear view across the fields.
On the landing there is a large cupboard currently used for storage, but with the possibility to become an upstairs WC.
The floors upstairs are wooden and all beams are exposed. All wood has been treated and walls go into the eaves of the roof and have been well insulated and plastered.
Back down stairs, a glass panelled door leads to the kitchen, measuring 5x3.5m; it has fully fitted light oak units, 90cm range style cooker, extractor fan in hood, a wood burner and electric radiator.
The 5x3.9m lounge is to the other side of the entrance through a glass panelled door, it has the original parquet flooring and a decorative, very efficient ceramic wood burner, this room was renovated, dry lined and plastered in July 2011.
Through the back of the kitchen a glass panelled door leads to:
Utility room to the left, 3.3x2.5m, with plumbing, velux window and door to back garden.
Newly fitted bathroom to the right with shower over bath, toilet and vanity sink unit with mirror over, extractor fan and heated towel rail. L-shape room measuring 3.5 x 3.5 narrowing to 2.5 x 3.5m. The bathroom was renovated in August 2011.
Next to the bathroom is a third bedroom/office measuring 3.5 x 3.5, this has an electric radiator and velux roof window..
The house is 128sqm of living space overall.
At the back and sides of the properties, the garden is mainly laid to grass with a large vegetable garden, trees and shrubs.
There is a 4m diameter above ground swimming pool with decked area.
The back garden is approx ¾ acre.
There is another barn close to the house which is very pretty and would be perfect for further development; it measures approx 10x5 and also has 2 floors and is currently used for storage.
Both of the barns have excellent potential to be converted for further accommodation.
There is a well with a granite rough planter outside the kitchen and this barn which makes a very pretty feature and could be utilised via a pump.
There is also a small stone building approx 3x1.5m, previously used for chickens, now used as wood store.
The property has a fosse septique system which was installed in 2006 and meets current specifications, this also has the facility to have more plumbing added to the existing tanks should the property be developed further at a later date.
We are surrounded by open fields, quiet lanes and no through traffic, but although in the countryside, within 15 minutes, you can be on the RN12 for all major routes.
