an 18th century house with a remarkable sea view
The road to the house passes through a small, peaceful village and leads to the nearby coast. In the heart of a nature reserve, the property overlooks the sea and offers an unobstructed view of the horizon. The place is ideal for a hike along the coastal path (GR 34) called “Sentier des douaniers” (the customs officers’ path) which is just a stone's throw away. The environment is serene. The beaches can be quickly reached by car (3 min) or by bike (9 min). All day-to-day shops and services are less than 7 minutes away. It takes less than 20 minutes to drive to the nearest TGV station, and just over an hour to Rennes international airport.
Formerly an outbuilding of the nearby castle, the house features an independent entrance and a partly walled garden. It is rectangular in plan, with a gable roof and west-facing openings. The facade is of dressed stone and coursed granite masonry. A wall with a straight lintel door separates the property into two lawned areas. One, sheltered from the wind, is planted with a few trees and faces the main entrance to the house. The other larger part faces the sea.
The front door opens onto a living room with a large picture window offering a wide and unobstructed sea view. A fireplace combining granite stone and lime plaster is ready to warm and illuminate the room. The wooden staircase contrasts with a more contemporary interior rough concrete wall. A kitchen and a shower room with toilet complete this minimalist single-storey interior.
A bright bedroom under the rafters offers a cosy atmosphere. The original timber roof frame adds character to the room. A small room, not yet used, is hidden behind a wall.
The sea view is the anchor of this property. The horizon reveals itself in different shades every hour, every day, captivating the eye, changing colours a thousand times, according to the weather and the seasons. The view is such that it could offer an inexhaustible setting to an artist in search of inspiration. A discreet little pied-à-terre, both maritime and bucolic, which will be perfect for romantic weekend getaways.
