A 15th & 19th century manor house, with more than 7 ha,
in the town centre of Redon
Redon, ILLE-ET-VILAINE brittany 35600 FR

Location

A town with 9,000 inhabitants, Redon is ideally located between Rennes, Nantes and the Gulf of Morbihan, where the borders of the French departments of Ille-et-Vilaine, Morbihan and Loire-Atlantique meet. Paris is 2 hours away via TGV train. At the confluence of two rivers, one flowing into the sea, the town had a large inland waterway transport activity in the 19th century and, today, is but an invitation to go on a wide variety of boat outings. It is also a wonderful spot for hiking and cycling. All shops and schools are to be found nearby.

Description

Away from all nuisances and in the midst of a predominantly wooded estate, this manor house is accessed via a little lane off the main road. Its completely unoverlooked setting is peaceful. Several outbuildings (garage, shed and henhouse) are dotted around it. An orchard and a vegetable garden are laid out below the vast terrace, facing the manor house.

The manor house

Its origins dating back to the 15th century, this manor house was greatly redesigned in the 19th century and spans a floor surface area of approx. 390 m². The main, south-facing building is constructed from rendered quarry stone blocks, whilst dressed stone was used for the surrounds framing the openings. Topped with a slate roof featuring three identical triangular pediment roof dormers as well as two smaller examples, it spans two levels under an attic floor. A triangular pediment featuring an oculus is set on the eaves above the front door. A south-facing terrace dominates the enclosed gardens below. A storeroom and a storage room adjoin the rear of the building on the east side. A short flight of steps goes up to the front door.


Ground floor
Double entrance doors open into a vestibule, with floor tiles, a stairway on the right of which goes up to the first floor. On one side, two adjoining lounges (one with a fireplace) feature moulded ceilings and parquet flooring, laid in strip and herringbone patterns. On the other side is a dining room, with a fireplace, followed by a laundry room, a hall area and, lastly, a kitchen. The latter has a stairway going to a cellar housing a boiler room as well as another hall area.
First floor
First of all, a half-level provides access to a shower room, a toilet and a storage area. Two corridors provide access from the first-floor landing to four bedrooms (one with a dressing room), two bathrooms, a study and a storage room.
Second floor
This level, laid out under the rafters, has a stairway going to a workshop area, two storage rooms as well as two adjoining attics.

The outbuildings

All four of the outbuildings stand on one side of the manor house. One building comprises a garage, spanning approx. 45 m², as well as two rooms, spanning approx. 15 and 30 m², used for storage purposes. Upstairs are two rooms. To the rear is a lean-to, with an old bakery nearby. A short distance away is a barn, topped with an attic and, on its right-hand side, the old henhouses.

Our opinion

Nowadays a sleeping beauty, this property is but waiting for new owners to breathe new life into it. Works will give this building back its splendour of yesteryear. The outside would also benefit from some attention to the garden, vegetable garden, orchard as well as the henhouse which would perfect a haven, ideal for a way of life that could almost be self-sufficient as well as for taking pastoral strolls.
