The property for sale is a solid two-bedroomed house in the centre of the pretty village of Collorec, Brittany, North-West France. Local amenities include shops, cafes and bars as well as a village school, church and camping facilities near a lake. Accommodation is over three floors. On one side of a central hallway is a spacious kitchen/dining room with sink, gas cooker, some units and an open fireplace. To the opposite side is a cosy, homely lounge with feature stone wall. Behind the lounge is a small cloakroom (accessed from the hall) leading to a utility area and to the rear of the property is a shared courtyard. Two large bedrooms and a shower room are located on the first floor. As you move to the top floor, there is a wooden staircase leading to a large, open, floored loft space with scope for two additional bedrooms. The house is partly furnished but needs renovating as it has been unoccupied for a number of years due to the owner's ill health. The house has great potential and would be a perfect investment opportunity for the right buyer. There is oil-fired heating, electricity and running water with mains drainage.
Collorec is a beautiful village and lies in the popular location of Brittany. As a holiday region, it is of course Brittany's coasts that attract the greatest number of visitors; the inland regions are on the whole quite tranquil and for this reason have attracted a lot of second-home owners from other parts of France, and from Britain.
In cultural terms, Brittany is very distinctive, with its own language and Celtic cultural tradition that set it apart from the rest of France. The Breton language, though not much used in everyday life, and not understood by most of the modern population, has made a comeback in recent years, and is taught in a lot of schools. Celtic traditions are alive or recalled today in Breton folk music, its Celtic festivals, and its many prehistoric monuments.
The property comes partially furnished. It has basic furniture including tables, chairs, sofas, beds, wardrobes, cupboards, kitchen units and some appliances.
