House Crazy Sarah came across this charming French country farm house in one of the old house groups she belongs to on Facebook.
It is located in a rural farm area in the Brittany region of northwest France.
The owner, Stephen, graciously allowed his photos to be shared on this little blog.
And what a delight!
This is La Ville Teadain which Stephen rescued from a sad state in its former life as a milking parlor. Below, you can see what it looked like before he got his artistic hands on it:
Inside, it was only fit for cows.
It’s been completely transformed – the garden too!
Have a peek inside this rustic French cottage…
When asked how old the structure is, Stephen replied: “Not sure how old it is but because of the pegged beams I would guess 175 years old“.
House Crazy Sarah loves that he left the craggy old beams exposed.
The home has so many nooks and crannies and eccentricities – it’s just fun to look at!
Look at this sweet little corner:
Upstairs, more exposed beams in a lofted space…
Look how completely uneven and asymmetrical the original beams are – such character!
The yard is just as charming as the home…
Ah La Ville Teadain…
It’s all so bucolic!
Merci beaucoup Stephen – for sharing your darling home with us house crazies!
