In the Loire-Anjou-Touraine Regional Nature Park, near to Chinon and Richelieu, near to slip roads for the A10 and A85 motorways; an airport and a TGV train station are 1 hour away.
The manor house
Leading out on a level on the garden and the courtyard sides by means of a terrace added in the 19th century, this masonry dressed stone building features quoins, framing around the openings, cornices and string courses. It has an oak wood roofing framework covered with slate tiles. Its left wing straddles a section of the old dwelling.
It underwent internal renovation works during the 19th century and has decorative features dating from this period in various rooms: wainscoting, fireplaces and floor tiles.
Upstairs, the centre of the main facade features a sundial with the motto “hora ultima deo” (God’s last hour).
The caretaker’s lodge
This masonry, lime-rendered, rubble stone building features dressed stone quoins and framing around the openings as well as an oak wood roofing framework covered with slate tiles.
It comprises 4 rooms, one of which has a Touraine fireplace, all under a large empty attic space.
The farm buildings
These masonry buildings, built of lime-pointed rubble stone, are not rendered. They feature dressed stone quoins, reinforcing string courses and framing around the openings as well as oak and white wood roofing frameworks, partially covered with slate tiles and partially covered with flat tiles.
Solar panels spanning a surface area of 60 m², providing 3 x 3 kw power under contract to the EDF (French electricity board) have been integrated into the roof of the building on the roadside.
On the raised ground floor with an access porch way, the building on the right-hand side, separate from the courtyard, still has a communal room featuring a fireplace with an overhanging mantelpiece and an integrated oven as well as a large vaulted scullery from the old dwelling, these two rooms being built over a large vaulted cellar. This is followed, under the left-hand wing of the manor house, by a straight stone stairway which provides access upstairs to another room.
There is a well in the courtyard.
A square dovecote, incorporated in the perimeter wall of the parklands, is isolated from the other buildings.
The ground floor has been converted into a small oratory. The upstairs, accessed via an outside ladder, still has its 296 dove-holes, to which the turning ladder provides acces and four exits facing the points of the compass.
A terracotta finial in the shape of a pigeon is dated 1740.
Forming an L-shape going from the top end of the farm as far as the vegetable garden, the parklands comprise three sections:
- a copse-maze, the circumvolutions of which intertwine between trees over one hundred years old and notably comprise a little bridge over a miniature ravine as well as a pergola.
- an intermediary section comprising grasslands.
- the manor house’s garden with an ornamental pool in line with the main facade, a greenhouse backing on to the perimeter wall and a well.
These landscaped parklands are planted with various species of deciduous trees such as white lime, maple, purple beech and hornbeam trees as well as conifers such as cedar trees.
The swimming pool
Installed in 2004, measuring 9x4.5 m and extended with a 3 m diameter semi-circle, the swimming pool is surrounded by tiled decking and features an electric safety cover.
The machine room is under the covered area.
This manor house is a good example of plain, functional and spacious architecture such as it was in the 18th century. It has been wisely converted and cleverly improved throughout the generations and the evolution of the way of life. Near to the Loire chateaux, the surrounding countryside is peaceful and truffles are to be found within its grounds.
The caretaker’s lodge and the farm buildings are not currently used and could be converted for a multitude of purposes without detriment to the calm reigning throughout the main section.
