French chateau for sale in Brittany.
The castle is located in a lovely quiet and green environment, overlooking a natural valley.
The property, full of character, reflects the history of this territory located near the high place of the Breton resistance during the Second World War. The equestrian character of the property only needs to be updated. Hunting is also authorized. A pond can be put back into use.

The chateau part is composed as follows :
Ground floor (about 255sqm): the main entrance opens onto a large hall and a baluster staircase leading to the first floor, an access to the octagonal dovecote tower (with several loopholes and an archway) and its spiral staircase also leading to the second floor and the attic.
On the left of the main entrance, a large living room with a Napoleon III style fireplace (Viollet-le-Duc style painted ceiling) beyond which is the 1900's part with the turret at the back: 3 rooms in a row are to be renovated. It is possible to make this space independent.

A cellar completes the whole, located under the southern part of the castle. It houses the meters (water / electricity) and one of the three hot water tanks of the house.

The outbuildings are multiple and offer huge potential for restoration and development.

Woods with bridle paths and numerous species (chestnut grove, pine forest, boulaie...) offer many opportunities for walking or horse riding; hunting is possible (2 bracelets of roe deer with the possibility of more on request) ;
4 large meadows (with a horse shelter on one of them, near the castle);
The park of more than one hectare surrounds the castle with an outdoor swimming pool, the outbuildings and an orchard.

Numerous plantations and arrangements of the park were carried out: rosebushes of various species, wisteria of China and Japan, kiwis, red chestnut trees, privet, St. John's wort, taxodium distichum "pendulum", cherry trees and weeping beech, magnolia grandiflora, centenary camellia, tulip tree, alley of cytis, catalpa, ginkgos, hydrangeas...
