Description

This manor house, set in the middle of undulating, wooded countryside near to a market town, stands in 20 ha of grasslands, woods and farmland.
The property has two entrances. A driveway bordered by poplar trees leads to the main entrance guarded by a large hexagonal tower, the loopholes of which bear witness to the defensive past of this residence. The other uses a long lane passing through brushwood, followed by grasslands crossed by a stream. After having gone over a narrow wooden bridge, the winding lane continues to the manor house which dominates a lake where swans and geese have nested.

The manor house

This manor house, built around a quadrangular courtyard, has undergone several periods of construction.
The main dwelling, dating from the 15th century is on the west side. On the east side, one of the last of Brittany’s gatehouses, flanked by a large tower-hexagonal dovecote, provides access to the courtyard via its equestrian gateway and its pedestrian gate topped with a coat-of-arms. It features half-mullioned windows and a triangular pediment roof dormer. On the south side are a 16th century building and an 18th century building. A small independent house stands on the north side.
These granite stone constructions feature various mullioned and half-mullioned windows as well as thick slate roofs.
The fully renovated, floor surface area of these buildings totals approx. 800 m².


Ground floor
The main residence is accessed via an arched doorway, topped with a coat-of arms. It opens into a large lounge, spanning approx. 47 m², with flagstones on the floor and a large granite fireplace with a relieving arch. A superb “noeud-de-cravat” stairway, housed in a tower, leads upstairs.
A door on the right-hand side leads to a dining room, with a fireplace and old terracotta floor tiles, that opens on to a fitted kitchen with an eating area; several doors provide access to the courtyard. A toilet, a storeroom and an outside toilet complete this section. On the left-hand side of the lounge, it is possible to access an entrance hall where a door opens on to the courtyard and a wooden stairway leads upstairs. The boiler room is on the right-hand side whilst, on the left hand side, a room spanning approx. 30 m² with a toilet communicates with the building on the south side.

First floor
A landing provides access to the left-hand section which comprises a bedroom spanning approx. 37 m² with parquet flooring, a large bathroom with a toilet and a dressing room with a glazed door opening on to a stone stairway that provides an independent entrance. The right-hand section comprises a bedroom of approx. 29 m² with parquet flooring, a fireplace, a shower room and a toilet. A door provides access to another landing with a separate stairway which leads to two bedrooms, one of which has a fireplace as well as a bathroom with a toilet, whilst the other has a shower room with a toilet. The main stairway continues up to a large attic.

The arms room

This room spans a floor surface area of approx. 87 m², with a fireplace featuring an old roasting spit. The large old doorway has been completely glazed. An oak wood, central winding stairway goes up to a landing providing access to one room, spanning approx. 24 m², and to another, spanning approx. 19 m², making it possible to pass into the watch turret which, in turn, provides access to the gatehouse.

The gatehouse

On the left-hand side of the gateway is a study. On the right-hand side are a wine cellar, storage rooms and a stone stairway which leads upstairs, communicating with the other buildings via the watch turret. A landing provides access straight on to a small room with a fireplace in the tower. On one side is a room spanning approx. 35 m² with a fireplace and a stairway that goes up to the large attic, another room in the tower, a mezzanine floor and the dovecote. On the other side, a large room spanning approx. 50 m² also has a fireplace.

The guest house

This building is on the north side, set at right angles to the gatehouse. It comprises a large room spanning approx. 38 m² with a kitchen area. The upstairs landing provides access to a shower room, a toilet and two bedrooms.

The chapel

It dates from the 17th century and is devoted to Saint Nicholas. It has been superbly restored with carved beams and angels. It has an underfloor central heating system.

The parklands and the grounds

The parklands comprise a lake, spanning 0.5 ha, bordered by meadows and a garden on the south-west side of the manor house. These grounds are crossed by a stream and are harmoniously wooded. The farmland, on a rental lease, spans a surface area of 9.5 ha; it comprises meadows and arable land.

The farm shed

This building, standing at a distance from the manor house, is concealed by vegetation. With a steel roofing framework and wood cladding, it comprises two rooms in use as offices. The cement floor spans a surface area of approx. 250 m². It could be used for receiving the general public or as a workshop or garage.

The garage and toolshed

A small, very discreet building stands near to the manor house. It is used as a toolshed and garage for storing equipment.

Our opinion

This historic gem has been fully restored down to the last detail according to good trade practices by an enthusiast. The works were carried out over several years by the best craftsmen under the aegis of a master architect from the French Historic Monument Association.
Nothing was left to chance: old terracotta floor tiles, stained glass windows, indoor shutters, choice of stone and wooden stairways worthy of the masterpieces prepared by journeymen.
These numerous large rooms would lend themselves to a wide variety of projects.
