An unusual opportunity to purchase a stone built semi detached Longere set in approx 1.6 hectares. Four bedrooms, en suite and family bathroom. The down stairs is open plan with a modern kitchen part screened from the dining and lounge which has a fire place incorporating a wood burning stove.


The current vendor has totally modernised the property to a high standard, including renewing the roof with a double insulated skin and internal walls and floors have been insulated to a high standard. The heating bills for the wood burner have been under 100 € for the current year and although electric wall fires have been fitted upstairs they have not been used.

The property includes a pine wood and two fields suitable for animals and there are three gardens. Attached to the longère is a work shop 10m x 5.5m approx with direct access from the house with change of use permission this would make a superb addition to the house. There is also a sizable open hanger, built with oak beams and posts, a smaller hanger and an outbuilding with a new slate roof.

Location: Our house is situated in the centre of a beautiful and lively village.


The entrance gates to the courtyards are immediately in front of the immaculate village church. You wouldn’t realise that such a large property existed where it is. In the village there is a bakery which makes wonderful pastries and bread. A village butchers, where you can even get a homemade meal to order. 3 bars, 2 schools, and a large lake area complete with children’s playground and paddling pool, as well as crazy golf and petanque pitches. In the summer you can get ice-creams and even a cool beer next to the ping-pong tables. There are many thriving sports clubs, which use the multi-purpose sports hall as their base, not least of which the football club; which has many teams of various age ranges, which use the excellent main pitch for their games, and the practice pitch for training. The beautiful Market town of Baud is very close by with its big supermarkets and is a tourist attraction with its many festivals including beer, music and traditional crafts. We are about 30 minutes from some wonderful beaches, and 15 minutes from the nearest city, Pontivy.
