On the outskirts of a village with all main shops and amenities. Near to the town of Laval which is connected by the fast train line to Paris and to Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport (ten daily return journeys respectively taking 70 and 90 minutes). Also near to a slip road for the A81 motorway which goes from Paris to Brittany’s capital (Rennes is less than an hour from Laval).
Most of the construction is the work of a wealthy trader from Laval who, in the 18th century, became the owner of the premises. His coat-of-arms are still to be seen in the middle of the main facade of the chateau. The latter comprises a central building, connecting two pavilions. The main building spans seven, regular bays and three levels, including one below the rafters. It is topped with a three-sloped slate roof. Its front facade features an octagonal tower, protruding from the east gable. Behind, two impressive pavilions are also topped with elegant hip roofs. One of them has a finial representing Judith, holding the sword and head of Holofernes in her hands. The openings, all arched, are framed with dressed stone or granite. The cornices and the quoins are made of freestone. A porch with a few steps provides access to the main entrance door.
Parklands extend over a total of 15 hectares. Grasslands and woods are on the east and south sides. A driveway, in line with the entrance gates, is approx. 1 km long. Gardens surround the chateau. An elegant front lawn, laid out in a medallion shape, is enhanced with boxwood, yew trees and rose bushes. An outstanding raised and terraced, back garden is enclosed by walls and reached via stone steps with wrought iron railings. It features, first of all, a row of lime trees running the full length of the terrace; then, on the west side, a little oak wood; followed by a first series of eight regular lawn parterres. Facing the steps and separated by alleyways, they are surrounded by boxwood and planted with yew trees and rose bushes. These eight parterres are then extended by an orchard and a vegetable garden, planted in two more squares of lawn separated by alleyways. In the centre of these features is a well under a shelter.
Both the elegance and quality of this property are outstanding. That of the buildings first of all. The residence’s pavilions, the chapel and the dovecote are reminiscent of the Renaissance period whilst the main facade of the residence illustrates the classical era and the corner pavilion that of the Age of Reason. All underwent major restoration works, inside and out, almost ten years ago. Now, that of the gardens. Whether the landscaped courtyard, the terraced gardens or the views extending from the chateau. They have once again been restored in keeping with their original designs. This property has, therefore, been given back its splendour of yesteryear when it was occupied by famous families. It is now waiting for someone else to take up the torch.
