It's in Brittany where the weather is naff most of the time. Still, it is within reach of Huelgoat (an expat enclave) so Marmite might be available.

We are a bit further east northeast in 22. What I have seen of Brittany it is all quite nice visually. A lot like Devon in places. Lots of small towns that look like they closed their shutters after the war and never reopened but others are very pleasant indeed. Roads are well maintained and the motorways are free. I have no knowledge of that particular area. Check in to United in Brittany and ask.https://unitedinbrittany.com

If you are going to look at it take a geiger counter with you - it's only two or three KM from the old Brennilis nuclear reactor which is being dismantled and decommissioned.

There was a lot of alleged goings on such as workers doing the dismantling not being properly decontaminated leaving the site and traipsing radioactive dust here there and everywhere including into houses they were renting in the area about five years ago.

Probably another place fronting directly onto a main road but with no parking or vehicular access.

OK in a big town close to a gare but no longer desirable anywhere else.

It does have a garage & terrain so I could be wrong.

What would a place like that have sold for 10 and 20 years ago Mysty?

I do not think its fronting onto a main road as the walls are fairly clean. The garage is attached to the house. What is it worth, no idea but probably more than the asking price.

Yes you are right about the walls, well spotted!

I do a lot of window cleaning, cigarette butt and dog poo removal :D

Place 2 doors down from me was a restaurant, no parking, buiding up for sale for 5 years now, never even had a visit to my knowledge. Building next door to me will be the same, I was interested in buying it but no longer with the lettings as they are. I have a small car park sufficient for the needs of my building but which could also be used to access the land behind, an unused tennis court belonging to the building next door, that would unlock the value of the 2 adjacent properties, as it is the land is enclavé.

In one of the fancy shops in Knightsbridge you could get £5000.00 for the dresser.
