Fantastic opportunity to acquire these two renovated cottages both offering 2 bedrooms and lots of different possibilities for either income generation and/or extended family accommodation. Set in beautiful, open countryside at the end of a lane just 35 minutes south of Guincamp and only 4km outside of the small town of St Nicolas de Pelem (supermarket etc.) The local area is well known for equestrian events such as racing and endurance competitions, with several Hippodromes close by.
The current owners have completely renovated one of the cottages and substantially refurbished the other so that they now provide extremely comfortable living space with some character features. In addition, the outbuildings and land of around 1.5 acres that includes two paddocks, would be suitable for horses.
The transport links are particularly good with the ferry ports of Roscoff and St Malo around 1hr30mins drive, plus Caen and Cherbourg at 3 to 3hrs30mins making travel between the UK and France very easy. The airport at Rennes can be reached in 1hr40mins. As well as Guincamp for larger shops and facilities, the coastal town of St Brieuc is less than 45 minutes away.
Set at the end of a lane, privacy and peace & quiet are assured.
