This house is 25 minutes from Saumur, 6 km from a medium-sized town with all shops and amenities. The historic towns of Fontevrault, Chinon, Saumur and Richelieu are within a 30-minute radius. Paris is some 3 hours away via the A10 motorway and 2⅓ hours by train from Saumur or 1⅔ hours by train from Châtellerault, just a 45-minute car drive away. Less than 15 minutes from an 18-hole golf course.
The 19th century wing
All the characteristics of the architecture from this period are present: balance, openings which are higher than they are wide, decorative features such as the cornice as well as the string course, the roof dormers, the bull’s eye windows and the slatted shutters.
The 15th century wing
An entrance hall, independent of the 19th century wing, provides access, left, to a dining room and, right, to a kitchen and an adjoining lounge. A door in the lounge opens into the tower with its stairway. Beams adorn the ceilings in all of the rooms. The floors are covered with terracotta tiles.
Two of the three rooms on the ground floor are enhanced with fireplaces whilst the third has a bread oven.
A stairway in the entrance hall leads to a study and to two bedrooms, with their bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a fireplace.
The rooms in the 15th century section, like the kitchen, lounge and two bedrooms in the 19th century wing, all face south.
Outbuildings spanning a ground surface area of almost 500 m² could lend themselves to a variety of projects. All the original features are still there such as doors, mangers, troughs, etc. In one of the outbuildings are vestiges of a dovecote which, given the number of dove-holes, bears witness to the size of the premises.
The ground surface area can be doubled by the existing floors or by creating floors as the ceilings in some of the buildings are 5 m high.
The holiday rental accommodation unit
This unit, converted in a section of the outbuildings with its own entrance, comprises a living room, with a fireplace, a kitchen and a toilet on the ground floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The floors downstairs are covered with terracotta tiles whilst there is wooden flooring throughout upstairs. The current rental of the holiday rental accommodation unit and the 19th century wing provides an income of €18,000 per year.
The parklands extend over more than 8 hectares, 7,000 m² of which are woods. Maple trees are planted with the traditional species such as oak, lime and cypress trees. The orchard is a promise of summer delights with fruit, such as cherries, plums and figs as well as those with prophylactic properties such as apples and walnuts, picked and eaten immediately.
The vast grasslands provide a clear view of the house whilst the woods, on the edge, protect it from onlookers.
The swimming pool, with its security system, is in a laurel bush setting, out of sight of the house.
Eras and styles blend harmoniously together. The quarry stone blocks of the older sections are enhanced by the dressed stone forming the framing around the openings, the quoins and the cornices. The polygonal tower, still with its machicolation above its door, acts as a link with the middle-class home, reassuring in its classicism and facetious courtesy of its few baroque features. The variety in its appearance is equal to the number of projects possible, following a few renovation works and the installation of some modern-day home comforts. This vast estate guarantees independence and tranquillity.
