Angers, MAINE-ET-LOIRE pays-de-loire 49000 FR

Location

In the midst of a quiet village in the Anjou region. Near to a historic town with all shops and amenities (about 5 km away). 30 minutes from Saumur and 45 minutes from Angers, both with links to Paris via the fast train line. Some 15 minutes from slip roads for the A85 motorway and 25 minutes from slip roads for the A11 motorway.

Description

The entrance gates, flanked by two freestone pillars, open into a partially paved courtyard, closed on one of its sides by the wall bordering the street and on the other three by the outbuildings, the manor and the guest house. A doorway, in the corner formed by the manor and the guest house, opens on to a terrace, laid out alongside the manor’s north gable wall and the raised garden extending it. This fully enclosed garden can also be directly reached via a gate off the street which goes around the property. The terrace also provides access to the cellar.

The manor house

Once a priory, its origins date back to the 15th century. Redesigned in the 17th century, it comprises a main residence, flanked in its centre by a hexagonal, freestone stairway turret, with windows topped with ogee arches. Constructed from lime-rendered, quarry stone blocks, it spans three levels, one of which is under the rafters. Its main facade features wide, regularly spaced, arched windows. The framing around the openings, the cornices, the quoins and the roof dormers are made of freestone. It is topped with a gable, slate roof, featuring roof dormers and crowned with a bell-tower.


Ground floor
A few steps go up to the entrance door set in the tower, housing the wooden spiral stairway which goes to all the floors. The entrance hall leads to two reception rooms at the front of the manor house: a large dining room and an adjoining lounge. The dining room provides access to a toilet and to a small dining room on a lower level. This small dining room communicates, in turn, with the kitchen. Both these rooms open directly on to the outside, the small dining room leading to the courtyard and the kitchen to the terrace. The floors are covered with terracotta tiles and the ceilings feature exposed beams. The lounge and the dining room have freestone fireplaces.
First floor
A central corridor provides access to two bedrooms and a hall area leading, on a lower level, to a linen room, on one side, and to a toilet and a shower room on the other. The floors are covered with terracotta tiles and the ceilings feature exposed beams. Both bedrooms feature freestone fireplaces.
Second floor
A central corridor provides access to two bedrooms and a shower room with a toilet. The floors are covered with terracotta tiles and the beams of the roofing framework are exposed.

The outbuildings

The outbuildings comprise three buildings including an 85 m² guest house constructed of lime-rendered, quarry stone blocks. Spanning two levels, one of which is under the rafters, it is covered with a gable, slate roof, featuring elegant, rounded, freestone roof dormers. The ground floor comprises a storeroom, a boiler room (a total of 25 m²) and a lounge which can also be directly accessed from the street. A wooden stairway goes from the lounge up to a first bedroom, with a bathroom and a toilet, and then to a second bedroom under the rafters.
A 21 m², lock-up garage-workshop, set at right angles, and a 22 m², covered area that is open on two sides.

Our opinion

This manor house can be clearly seen in the midst of the village, very near to the listed church. One of the finest in the village, it has all of the Anjou region’s architectural codes such as elegant facades, a hexagonal, freestone tower and steep slate roofs with roof dormers. This property also has the renowned features of this land’s pleasant way of life, namely vast, bright rooms with outstanding fireplaces and a sheltered garden, ideal for taking meals during clement weather. Near to large forests and the Loire Valley, the surroundings are ideal for taking interesting walks. These wonderful premises, in pristine condition, could then appeal both as a main residence and a holiday home.
