Property description
A 19th century chateau and its outbuildings with more than 53 hectares in south Finistère - ref 637091
In the south of the French department of Finistère, near to the sea and the coastal paths bordering the coves with their fine sandy beaches, between two towns with all shops and amenities. This estate is also not far from main road and rail links. Paris can easily be reached by train (15 minutes from a station) and by airplane (daily flights from an airport, 30 minutes away).
A wooded avenue, off a little country lane, runs several hundred metres to the middle of a vast estate, spanning more than 53 hectares, with a 19th century chateau and its outbuildings, comprising a 15th century manor house, a dovecote and a chapel. This property, with woods on more than a third of its surface area, is crossed by a stream flowing from north to south on its west side. The south side is predominantly covered with grasslands. On the west side are a lake and gardens, laid out in varying formations to encourage walking. Numerous alleyways have been created or exposed in order to make it easy to move around the estate.

The chateau

This chateau was constructed from local quarry stone blocks, at the end of the 19th century, on the foundations of an older manor house. Dressed stone was used for the window framing and the quoins. The building spans three levels over cellars and under attic space. It is flanked on the north side by a tower with a candlesnuffer roof. Slate covers all the roofs.
The south-west facade is adorned with a monumental curved pediment with a sculpted tympanum. The windows on either side are topped with triangular pediments. It spans a total living space of almost 950 m².

The manor house

The manor house, dating originally from the 15th century, spans two levels under a slate roof.

The dovecote

The dovecote, spanning three levels, comprises a 25 m² living room on the ground floor and a bedroom with a bathroom on each of the upper floors (19 and 21 m²). It spans a total of approx. 72 m².

The chapel

This chapel, spanning approx. 26 m², is in a good state of repair.

Our opinion
This estate is vast and stately, just like its chateau. The older chapel is on a different scale. Dimensions and eras are mixed together, multiplying aesthetic assets and possible uses. Choices regarding a way of life and activity are numerous especially as all major works have been completed. The sea air has just a few kilometres to travel in order to invigorate this peaceful countryside which can but do residents the utmost good.
