Set in superb, nuisance-free countryside. Less than ten minutes from a small town with all shops and amenities. 45 minutes from Angers and less than an hour from Nantes and Laval. 1½ hours from La-Baule.
This chateau, constructed in the second half of the 19th century by architect René-Hodé, is representative of the neo-gothic style which was outstandingly popular in the Anjou region. Rectangular in shape, it is flanked by two towers at the front and two watch-turrets at the back. It is built from rendered quarry stone blocks of shale, with the exception of the towers, the watch-turrets and the bays, comprising the openings, which are of dressed freestone. It spans four levels, a garden level, a raised ground floor reached via outside steps, a first and a second floor, all under attic space. In the centre of the rear facade, a dressed freestone tower, built outside of the carcass, houses a stairway. The chateau is topped with a steep, hip, slate roof. The corner towers and watch-turrets are topped with slate candlesnuffer roofs. The neo-gothic style of the building, typical of the work of René-Hodé, is predominantly characterised in this case by the presence of watch-turrets, ogee moulding decor, imitation machicolation, recesses and pinnacles, adorning the elevations.
The outbuildings stand at a distance from the chateau. These four buildings are laid out around a rectangular courtyard that is now landscaped. Two parallel buildings are used as a stable, a cowshed and a barn, all with attics. The stalls in the stable are perfectly preserved. The other two buildings, also facing one another, correspond to the caretaker’s and the gardener’s cottages. These buildings stand out courtesy of their half-hipped roofs and their semi-circular or segmentally arched, brick geminated windows. The gardener’s cottage is topped with a dovecote and flanked by a kennel, an aviary and a farmyard.
The 19.5 ha parklands extend all around the chateau. They predominantly comprise landscaped gardens with grassland planted here and there with copses and bordered by woods. A river runs along the south side. The section laid out to the rear of the chateau, however, is laid out as a French formal garden. It also comprises an old, walled vegetable garden with an orchard. A swimming pool has been installed in this area, behind the gardener’s cottage. The vegetable garden and one of the outbuildings are bordered by an old moat.
This property is, at the very least, of threefold interest. First of all, its architecture, is a perfect example of the neo-gothic trend that was in fashion during the 19th century. Secondly, it is representative of what was a country holiday home at that time; a chateau in the midst of its lands with all the buildings required for a self-contained way of life. This property, still complete today, is a universe all of its own. And lastly, it is in the centre of a vast living area in the proximity of the large towns in the west of France, making it possible to develop professional projects. Therefore, this property, in a good state of repair, is worthy of the renovation works that are needed to give it back its glory of yesteryear.
