For sale: This remarkable Chateau dating from the late 15 and 16th Centuries is in the Tregor region of Brittany, only 22 kms from the sea and the Bay of St Brieuc and the Bay of Morlaix. The pretty seaside resort of Saint Quay Portrtieux is just 22 kms away. The Chateau is on the edge of a small village, in a peaceful wooded site, not far from the attractive city of Guingamp with 7,000 inhabitants. Easily accessible from Paris by TGV and autoroute, the nearest resort offers a beautiful beach, a fishing port, a marina and, during the summer, connection with the Channel islands and the Island of Brehat. 

This property is certainly one of the most interesting and authentic  Breton properties of the late 15th century. It has maintained a  high quality interior decoration with superb monumental carved granite fireplaces, spiral staircases, coffered ceilings and panelling. Three stair turrets allow a good distribution of accommodation throughout the Manor.

Ground Floor: Entrance hall with cloakroom and W.C. A fitted kitchen, dining room, 45m2, a large Salon, 61m2, a small salon, a bedroom, 15m2, a bathroom and a room currently used as a fitness room.  
First Floor: Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two shower rooms and an office or bedroom, 57m2.
Second Floor: A beautiful dressing room, a laundry room, and large attics with the potential to create additional bedrooms if needed.

The property appears to be in a satisfactory state structurally. It is in use as a principal residence and has undergone major restoration and modernisation from 1974 to 1978. 

The roof is of slate with nails apparenty in good condition. The windows are wood double glazed. The heating is carried out by two Hoval boilers installed in the 1970s with a buried tank of 15,000 litres. Individual sanitation old and uncontrolled. However it seems that the property is served but not connected, by the mains drains.

Behind the manor are two open garages , one with a wooden frame supporting a slate roof with nails and the other one with corrugated sheets. An extension of the right wing of the Chateau  is a stone farmhouse with a slate roof, in a useable state, comprising two wood sheds and a fitness room. External walls and roof appear to be in good condition

The chateau is set in beautiful grounds of 10 ha 77a 17ca enclosed by wire fencing and planted with beautiful trees, crossed by a stream and with a pond. About 4 hectares of resinous trees have been felled and will be fully replanted with Sitka spruce. An old tennis court is also present in the grounds.

The entire chateau and the adjoining farmhouse are registered on the additional inventory of historic monuments which allows for various tax benefits if you are a french tax payer.
