A unique opportunity to complete a handsome partly-restored detached stone house in the heart of the award-winning character town of Pontrieux. The property enjoys a courtyard setting with private parking and a large amount of work has already been done to a high standard (no structural work required). It is possible to create at least 4 bedrooms although there is still scope to easily reconfigure the layout if desired. The ground floor has potential to be a separate apartment (a separate kitchen and bathroom are already in situ) and there is planning permission for a connecting annex in the courtyard already in place. This is a fantastic project for an impressive generous-sized home which could also enjoy the possibility of a rental or gite income in this very popular Breton town.

The House

This interesting and beautiful property dates back to the 1800s when it was originally built as a grain store – hence it being very sturdy with exposed trestle roof beams, solid oak floors and 20 inch thick solid stone walls (which help it stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter).
• The house has over 180 square meters of living space over three floors (extendable to circa 210 square meters should you wish to reinstate the annex).
• The original tile roof is in excellent condition having had minor repairs and a full service in 2012.
• The doors on the ground floor are all new hand-made solid treated wood.
• The 1st floor has all new “Lapeyre” high quality solid oak double glazed professionally fitted windows.
• The second floor has two high quality Velux windows with great views over the town and there is also planning permission for an extra Velux window if required.
• The property is fully water tight, needing no exterior or structural renovation, and fully conforms to the planning permission granted for the renovation.
• All of the sewage and first fix plumbing is complete and conforms to modern standards.
• The electrics are complete and conform to modern standards, including new circuit board, all installed by a French qualified Electrician.
• The exterior walls and roof have all been insulated to modern standards.
• The property has two large fully working electric water heaters/tanks (ballons), one of which nearly new.
• The ground floor comprises summer kitchen/utility opening through double glazed patio doors, exterior wooden doors onto the courtyard and a large high quality shower room. Both of these rooms are almost complete and fully operational with hot and cold water. There is also a habitable bedroom/office, two halls, a very large garage and large storeroom/wine room that can be fitted with a secure door .
• The first floor comprises a generous kitchen that is almost complete and fully operational (featuring a sink with hot and cold water, modern gas hob, quality eye level electric oven, microwave and plumbing for a dish washer); a large habitable bedroom; a dining area, and a large and very luminous triple aspect lounge with a flue and hearth ready for a large log burner. The lounge enjoys views onto the church and neighouring picturesque rooftops; a large triple height landing open to the top of the roof rafters, and connections for a Sky satellite TV (the dish is in place on the roof and fully operational).
• On the second floor the rooms have been taken to the stud wall (wooden skeleton) stage so are fully open to reconfiguration if desired. The current walls have been configured for two large double bedrooms capable of taking super king sized beds, each with an en-suite bath or shower room and large walk-in wardrobes. The first fix plumbing and the two Velux windows are in place to support this design. There is also a generous linen room/nursery/bunk room that could be easily be joined to either of the bedrooms, and a small landing looking down onto the 1st floor.

Location in Pontrieux

The property is located in its own private courtyard with easy access through a short secluded tunnel between two other stone houses, making the property quiet and private whilst being right in the centre of the town! It’s less than 50 yards from the church, river and one of the town’s cobbled squares. It’s within 100 yards of a traditional café, stone bar/restaurant, butcher/delicatessen and one of Pontrieux’ s two boulangeries. The post office, a small local supermarket and a range of other traditional shops are within 5 mins walk. The marina and steam railway station are a 10-15 min walk away.

The courtyard is fully owned by the property so there is private parking for 3-4 cars. It enjoys an integral stone, hand-built barbecue blended into an old chimney and walled eating area that would work well in conjunction with the property’s summer kitchen that opens onto the courtyard via the large patio doors. There is default planning permission for a large annex to be built in the courtyard if the new owners so desire (replacing a derelict annex that the present owners removed under planning permission) and which could easily be connected to the main house though one of the exterior walls.

About Pontrieux

Dating back to the 15th century, Pontrieux (bridge over river Trieux) is nicknamed ‘The town of a thousand rivers’ and is officially designated a place of ‘special historic and architectural interest’ (Petite Cité de Caractère’). It has won the famous “4 flowers” (Ville Fleurie) competition’s top award for its exceptional floral displays and greenery. It has numerous beautiful features, including its unique “lavoirs” – these old stone wash houses were status symbols of their time and over fifty of them can still be admired from the river on the many boat trips available through Pontrieux – there are also some visible from right outside the property.
Other special features of Pontrieux include a marina complete with bars, restaurants and resident swans, from which yachts can cruise up to the English Channel. Boats trips and kayak rental/tours are also available from the marina. It has its very own steam railway where you can take a steam train (Train Vapeur) through unforgettable landscapes to the port of Paimpol with its great bars, seafood restaurants and very beautiful duned beaches. There are two immaculate stone cobbled squares along with two traditional bridges. Pontrieux also boasts a wealth of boutique/artisan shops, art galleries, fantastic restaurants, antique markets and cafes; a weekly food market; and the famous ‘Eiffel tower’ 15th century town hall.
During the summer, many parts of Pontrieux are flood-lit with coloured lights and the town attracts traditional Breton festivals including the Fest-Noz, Folk-Parades, the ‘Yesteryear Market’ showcasing historic Breton skills such as butter and cider-making and the annual ‘Paint Pontrieux’ art competition. The world renown Breton singer Deniz Prigent (of Black Hawk down fame) has also performed here.
Pontrieux is in the popular Cotes D’Amour region of Brittany about 75 mins drive from the ports of Roscoff and St Malo, both offering daily ferries to England and Ireland. It is also within easy reach of Brest and Dinan airports that have regular flights to the UK and which are accessed via excellent toll-free motorways. It’s a 15 mins drive to the large town of Guingamp with its numerous shops, hypermarket and large retail parks. It about a 15 min drive to the sea where you can go west along the world famous ‘Pink Granite Coast’ with its spectacular beaches, rock formations, light houses and water-sports. There are also 4 golf courses within about a 20min drive.
