For $12.8M, a French Isle Like an Impressionist Painting

New, 1 comment

Over in the Gulf of Morbihan in Brittany, France, sits Île de Boëdic, a 17.3-acre private island with all the usual fare found in idyllic historic properties: a gatehouse, a chapel, sweeps of green fields, and a three-story main residence. Spotted originally over at Arch Digest, the offers a 1,722-square-foot main house—with what AD calls "elegantly timeworn interiors"—revamped in 2011 by French architect François Bureau. The $12.8M price tag includes 9,547 square feet of total living space (there's a guest house, too), plus the furnishings, upkeep equipment (like the tractor), and boats. In true brokerbabble fashion, the listing calls the isle "a wonderful heaven for sailors" that is "tantalizingly close to the historic city of Vannes." It's also "superb," "quaint," "romantic," "distinguished," and "simply must be seen to be believed." Have a look, above.
