less than 5 kilometres from the coast
A fifteen minute drive from Quimper, with the bay of Douarnenez in the distance, nestled among legendary hills, a former stable that became a house some fifty years ago.
A slate-roofed stone former stable block was converted into a house in 1976. In seamless continuity, the adjacent garage sports the same features. The building is structurally sound although some work is required to meet current energy and drainage standards and refresh the interior decoration.
The front door opens onto a hallway which leads to the reception and other rooms. The main living area spans 50m², with a 6.7m-high “cathedral” ceiling under the eaves and a stone fireplace. Terracotta tiling throughout. The adjacent 11m² dining room opens onto the 6m² fitted, fully equipped kitchen. A corridor leads to the shower room, toilet, storeroom, laundry room and the adjacent garage.
A straight wooden staircase leads to three bedrooms, a bathroom and toilet. Each bedroom is around 10m². Two have washbasins. The layout and decoration requires updating. The dormer windows could be replaced with roof windows to offer more light.
A 20m² area, formerly used as garage, adjoins the northern wall of the house. It is built of stone, with a slate roof and a window. Double doors open onto the garden to the west and another door leads into the house. With the current layout, this area could become a living area.
Far-reaching views take in the rolling hills of the surrounding Cornouaille countryside – where mysterious forests harbour Celtic legends – and, beyond, the irrepressible draw of the ocean. Tall pines, bushes and local flowers offer the perfect backdrop for outdoor activities or hard-earned rest.
A tribute to the Celtic way of life, this property is a warm-hearted celebration of the strength and beauty that stems from deep-seated tradition. Like the swirls of the famous Breton Triskell, this former stable honours past, present and future, offering a haven of peace to new occupants.
