On the outskirts of Le-Mans, less than 20 km from the town centre (station with fast train links to Paris-Montparnasse taking less than an hour). Le-Mans, its old medieval, Plantagenet centre with its various events (“Cours et Jardin”), its Le-Man’s 24-hour racing circuit and its internationally renowned endurance car race, as well as the Porsche-Experience-Centre driving school and the International Le-Mans-Karting go-cart track. 30 minutes from two golf courses and the Le-Pôle-Européen-du-Cheval equestrian centre. Less than 3 km from two villages, both with all shops.
This residence spans three levels. The roofs are covered with slate; the facades lime-rendered. The central building is flanked by two protruding pavilions, featuring watch-turrets on all four corners. The north-west facade has a stairway tower; that facing south-east, a porch reached via a few steps. The protruding pavilions precede a chapel. A square pavilion on the west side is topped with a steeply pitched roof. Both facades and roofs are enhanced with a wealth of ornamentation comprising numerous gargoyles and sculptures; a modillion frieze runs around the entire building; windows feature balconies decorated with stone latticework; the lower sections are composed of Roussard sandstone and the quoins of freestone. The door and window frames have been redone using wood and double glazed with safety glass on the ground floor.
This chapel can be reached from the inside via a door concealed in the large lounge or via the outside. It still has its original stone flooring, with inlaid marble decoration in the shape of a clover-leaf, panelling and doors featuring linen fold panels as well as its decorated, cross-ribbed ceiling with stained-glass windows.
Facing the castle, an old outbuilding, awaiting renovation, features tall gothic-arched and mullioned windows. This building was once part of an even bigger unit, now separate from the estate. Large plantations create a verdant screen between the two sections. A large meadow between the two sections could become an orchard, fed by water via the old moat.
This rectangular outbuilding has a slate roof. On the ground floor, on either side of a large garage, are a stable with three horse loose boxes and a tack room. A house, comprising three rooms on the ground floor, awaits renovation. Terracotta floor tiles. A wooden stairway in one of the rooms goes upstairs. The attic space is laid out as two rooms and an attic.
The caretaker’s cottage
Standing at a distance from the estate, an old enclosed farmhouse awaiting renovation can be reached via a separate entrance. It is constructed from rendered quarry stone blocks and topped with a tile roof. It houses three rooms.
The landscaped parklands, grasslands and woods
Landscaped parklands, spanning approx. 2 ha, are planted with various species of tall trees (Atlas cedar, lime, etc.). Two tree-planting campaigns were carried out in 2017 and 2018 so as to complete the two already established woods and to redesign the landscape at the lower end of the estate. Some 9 ha of grasslands are rented under a farm lease to ensure their upkeep. Two or three hectares of grasslands around the house are for the residents’ private use. It would be possible to redeem additional hectares of grasslands. An apple orchard follows on from the old, partially walled vegetable garden.
This property is worthy of interest, not only because of its buildings and land but also because of its general location.
The castle, having come down through a series of styles and eras, is one of those marked by a first-class continuity where everything is finally both functional and harmonious. Many decorative features, dating from the times of Louis XIV and Napoleon III, go very well together as if it were the most natural thing in the world, appearing to encourage the continuation of certain conversion works in a more contemporary style.
The land, the presence of water and the type of outbuildings are an immediate invitation to accommodate horses. To such a use could, obviously, be added those of bed & breakfast and function activities as the surface areas and buildings are particularly well-suited to such projects.
