, MAYENNE pays-de-loire FR


In the midst of the historic district of a small town in the Upper Anjou region, crossed by a navigable river and having all shops and amenities, including a hospital. 30 minutes from the town of Laval, with 75-minute TGV train links to Paris (more than 10 return journeys per day), and 45 minutes from Angers.


A pedestrian gate provides access to a landscaped courtyard, laid out in front of the mansion house, whilst wide gates open into the back garden. Standing in the middle of completely walled parklands, this mansion house is surrounded by outbuildings with a barn-shed as well as a studio flat at the front and an orangery-workshop as well as a garage at the back. The view from the rooms on the first and second levels features a group of old, 17th century, monumental, religious buildings in the foreground, with the town and the surrounding landscapes in the distance.

The mansion house

This very square mansion house was constructed in the late 18th century. It spans three levels, one of which is an attic floor. Its hip slate roof features roof dormers on all four of its sides. The framing around the openings, the quoins, the roof dormers and the cornice are all made of freestone. Semi-circular arched entrance doors are set in the middle of the two main facades. They are topped with a balcony, supported on three corbels. The one on the west facade, reached via stone steps with wrought iron railings, is adorned with two oval, stone medallions enhanced with the busts of a man and a woman in profile. An extension was added to the south gable wall in the 19th century.

Ground floor
A wide, central, through corridor, with terracotta floor tiles, provides access to all the rooms on the ground floor and houses the quarter-turning wooden stairway. On one side are the intercommunicating dining room and lounge. On the other side are a study-library and a hall area, leading to a room, a cloakroom, with a toilet and a wash-hand basin, as well as a kitchen and a laundry room. The ceilings in the corridor and the reception rooms are over 3.6 m high. The dining room features wall panelling whilst the lounge has outstanding parquet flooring, inlaid with a rose. Both rooms have black marble fireplaces and moulded ceilings with decorative ornamentation. The lounge and the kitchen open directly on to the garden. A cellar and a boiler room are to be found under a section of the ground floor.
First floor
The landing on this level leads to a corridor which, as on the ground floor, provides access to all the rooms, with a French window opening on to a balcony at each of its ends. On the right-hand side of the landing are a toilet and a bedroom, with cupboards, a wardrobe and a shower room. On the left-hand side is a bedroom, with cupboards, a wardrobe and a toilet. Straight on, a dressing room provides access to a bedroom, with its own bathroom and toilet. The dressing room has a red marble fireplace whilst the one in the bedroom is made of grey marble. Both rooms have coffered ceilings with moulding. There is parquet flooring throughout this level.
Second floor
Part of this floor awaits conversion. The landing ceiling comprises a wide light well. A first hall area leads to a shower room, with a toilet, as well as to two rooms, one of which has a wash-hand basin. A second hall area goes to two rooms, each with a wash-hand basin. And lastly, a third hall area also leads to two rooms, both with wash-hand basins. The floors on this level are covered with terracotta tiles of parquet flooring.

The outbuildings

The outbuildings are set out all around the mansion house. At the front is a converted studio flat, with a bathroom and toilet (spanning a total of 18 m²) as well as a closed barn (approx. 28 m²), used for storage purposes. At the back, there are an orangery (35 m²) and a workshop (12 m²) as well as a garage, able to take at least two cars (44 m² with a 4.6 m high ceiling).

Our opinion

This sober mansion house immediately inspires confidence courtesy of its aesthetic appearance and its immaculately kept parklands and buildings. Its large windows let in copious amounts of light. A few refined decorative features, such as the ova string course enhancing the arch around the front door, reflect even more character. The interior layout is clear, the rooms are numerous to the point that the attic floor appears to be ideal for accommodating friends and passing guests. Such premises are equally as interesting as the little town, notably with regard to culture.
