in a 17th century mansion house in Angers
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.
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.
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.
