A 170 m² flat, still with all of its authenticity,
in a 17th century mansion house in Angers
Angers, MAINE-ET-LOIRE pays-de-loire 49000 FR


This mansion house stands in a historic district of Angers, near to the river Maine, the banks of which are undergoing rehabilitation works. It is near to all shops and amenities in the town centre. The train station is less than 15-minutes’ walk away and the tramway is but 5 minutes away. (Angers has 90-minute TGV train links to Paris with ten or so daily return journeys). Angers is also less than 90 minutes away from the sea by road.


This property is entered via a porch way, opening into a landscape courtyard, at the end of which stands the mansion house. Its origins date back to the 12th century. It underwent major construction works in the 15th century and was heavily redesigned in the 17th century. It spans three levels and comprises a main building built of rendered quarry blocks of shale, with a courtyard gable, and exposed freestone on the main facade. This facade features a broken pediment and a monumental roof dormer in the gable, crowning two sets of two windows. Architraves featuring rusticated masonry enhance all the openings, including those of the stairway tower on one side. Fully restored at the end of the 20th century, it was home for more than three hundred years to the town’s municipal pawnshop. Some very beautiful buildings enclose the courtyard on its other sides. A passageway connects this courtyard to a little back garden and to the public area. This flat is on the first floor of the mansion house, knowing that the ground floor is raised.

The flat

A spiral stone stairway, with a vaulted ceiling leads to this flat. A solid, oak wood front door opens into a vast living room, enhanced by a monumental freestone fireplace. Illuminated via two large, south-facing windows, this room communicates directly with a kitchen and a study. It also communicates with a wide corridor providing access, on one side, to a toilet as well as a bathroom and, on the other, to two bedrooms and a shower room, with a toilet. There are cupboards in one of the bedrooms, the study and the corridor. All the rooms feature terracotta floor tiles and French ceilings. Half-timbered partition walls separate the lounge, the kitchen and the study. A cellar is in the basement.

Our opinion

The mansion house harbouring this flat is set in the peace and quiet, near to the town centre and the banks of the river Maine, currently undergoing rehabilitation works. It blends beautifully with the others in the surrounding district, not only because of its unusual history, now eight hundred years old, but also because of its Great Century architecture. This flat has also been restored although its atmosphere remains that of the 17th century. It is but waiting for new residents to move in so as to become an elegant, comfortable home, suited to all modern-day requirements.
