Description

The entrance to this property is off one of the streets in the hamlet. A gateway opens on to a drive which leads across the parklands to a vast courtyard formed by the manor house and its outbuildings. These buildings are set in the midst of 15 hectares of completely walled parklands. The manor house is composed of a central building, extended by wings set at right angles: one wing on the front facade and two wings flanking the rear facade. One of these latter two wings is adjoined by a greenhouse. The outbuildings comprise an old chapel, now a barn, and the former stables, now transformed into a guest house. This property adjoins a forest tract spanning over 2,000 ha and dominates the Layon Valley. A second drive, lined with trees on either side, provides access to the property’s main gates.

The manor house

In the Middle-Ages, a fortified castle belonging to one of the king’s equerries, it was then developed into a Seigneury with a stately house. Major renovation works were carried out in 2008 because of its very poor state of repair. Constructed from quarry stone blocks, it is totally or partially covered with lime rendering and topped with slate roofs: reflecting a Mansard style on the central building and gable or hip styles on the wings. The central section spans three levels, including an attic floor. The wings span, in part, two levels including an attic floor and, in part, a single level. The slight projections in the centre of the main, front and rear facades, the framing around the openings, the roof dormers, the cornices and the quoins are all made of freestone, as are the two pilasters flanking the entrance facade.


Ground floor
The main entrance hall leads, on one side, to a lounge and an adjoining lounge-television room as well as a study. On the other side are a dining room and, also adjoining, a second entrance hall with access to a toilet and a kitchen. A few steps lead from the study to a games room and a room with a bread oven. The kitchen provides access to a laundry room which leads, in turn, to garages, a boiler room, a large room and an old greenhouse. The floors are covered with polished concrete, with parquet flooring in the television room, the study and the games room. The kitchen and the games room have cathedral ceilings. A wooden, quarter-turning stairway going up to the first floor is housed in the main entrance hall.
First floor
The landing room leads to a hall area and a master bedroom which has a shower room, with a toilet, and a dressing room. The hall area provides access to two bedrooms and a shower room, with a toilet.
Second floor
The landing leads to three bedrooms, a toilet and a dressing room. Two of the bedrooms, including the one with a dressing room, have their own shower room.

The outbuildings

These outbuildings are composed of a barn, once a chapel, the old stables now converted into a guest house (spanning a floor surface area of approx. 200 m²), a large garage, a room and a greenhouse. The last three outbuildings can be reached directly from the manor house.

The parklands

These fully walled parklands are composed of large lawns, planted with copses of trees of varying species such as oak, magnolia, bald cypress, sequoia and cedar trees. The southern section comprises two lakes, whilst there is a 5,000 m² plot of vines in the northern section. They also include an old, walled orchard-vegetable garden, a meadow and a plane tree-lined drive that leads to the main entrance gates.

Our opinion

This property is set in extremely pleasant surroundings, amongst the Coteaux-du-Layon vines, to the south of the Anjou region and near to villages, typical of the banks of the river Loire, classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. It has good communication routes and is within easy reach of shops and amenities. All the buildings have undergone recent, renovation works that introduced a resolutely contemporary style in accordance with stringent requirements. Furthermore, the rooms are spacious, bright and extremely comfortable. The parklands have also been subject to major works. Everything is now completely finished and ready to accommodate new owners.
