In Southern Finistère, this neogothic castle stands at the heart of “a visual-, noise- and smell-free environment”, stresses France Châteaux Finistère Morbihan/Sotheby’s International Realty, “just 10 min from downtown Quimper and the beaches, and 15 min from an international airport or a TGV station”. Overlooking a river, the round towers provide magnificent views on the countryside. Built in the latter half of the 19th century, the property provides close to 800 sq m of living space. Among mullioned windows and dormer pediments, the hall connects to a couple of 80-sq m living rooms with vintage woodwork. A beautiful central staircase leads to eight bedrooms and three suites with private bathrooms. Outside, a swimming pool is fenced by a 3,000-sq m exotic garden surrounded by granite walls. Various outbuildings (orange grove, converted stables, henhouse, keeper’s house) round out this 19.5-ha estate filled with forests and meadows.
