An 18th century mansion house with a garden
in a small historic town in the Anjou region

Location

In the middle of a small historic town, with its outstanding castle, surrounded by numerous character residences. All shops and amenities are to be found in the town and can be reached on foot. Near to a well-known golf course. 35 minutes from Angers, 30 minutes from Saumur and some 20 minutes from the banks of the river Loire. The A11 and A85 motorways are within easy reach.

Description

This mansion house looks out over a square in the town centre, laid out in this section as a garden with rose bushes and attractively trimmed bushes. The front door, the garage and the boiler room open on to this square which includes numerous shops and hosts a market every Saturday morning. At the back, the house opens on to a terrace, with old flagstones, and on to a lawned garden which includes a small outbuilding, a well and a small corner freestone pavilion. The garden is walled.

The mansion house

This residence, constructed from lime rendered stone and quarry blocks, comprises three buildings that have been redesigned over the centuries. On the road side, the garden level and the first floor, under attic space topped with a slate roof, stand over a lower section which houses a garage, a boiler room and a cellar. The rear facade of the central section is constructed from freestone, as are the framing around the openings, the quoins, the cornices and the roof dormers.


Ground floor
The entrance hall leads via a few steps to a hall area with a door opening on to the garden and, opposite, a stone vaulted corridor. Said corridor, decorated with an old cupboard door, includes terracotta floor tiles, a stone sink, set under a window, as well as an alcove. It leads to a first lounge, with terracotta floor tiles and a French ceiling, opening via a French window on to the garden. At the end of this corridor is a second lounge which is extended by a dining room. Both these rooms have herringbone pattern parquet flooring and a marble fireplace. The first and the second lounges provide access to a vestibule and to a wooden, quarter-turning stairway, with a carved newel post and rampant balusters, leading up to the first floor. In addition, the vestibule provides access to the garden and to the kitchen, which can also be reached from the dining room. Said kitchen is fitted with marble work surfaces on central units. On one side is a storage room, on the other a hall area and, at the end, a toilet. The kitchen precedes a third lounge, with its freestone fireplace and an outstanding curved “potager” set under a window. It provides access to a linen room that opens on to the garden. The kitchen and the third lounge both have stone floors, French ceilings and French windows opening on to the garden.

First floor
The landing provides access to a bedroom and to two hall areas. The bedroom, with its terracotta floor tiles, adjoins a room which has a water supply point. A first hall area leads to a bedroom, featuring panelling, an alcove, terracotta floor tiles, a dressing room and a bathroom with a toilet. The second hall area leads to three bedrooms, a shower room with a toilet and an attic, illuminated via two roof dormers. Said hall area also has a small wooden, quarter-turning stairway that leads to another attic, with terracotta floor tiles, illuminated via a large roof dormer.

Our opinion

The old historic town forms a magnificent setting for this luxurious mansion house which is still one of its gems. Most of its rooms have superb architectural features, which have lost none of their splendour over the centuries, beginning with the old stone curved “potager” (a secondary hearth where soups and other previously prepared dishes were cooked on embers) which just exudes character. This home not only looks out over the town via its tall, aligned windows but also nestles in its quiet garden which can be reached all on a level from numerous rooms. The local surroundings form an authentic land characterised by its verdant, rolling countryside, its vast forests and its old villages with their wonderful churches, a guarantee of pleasure and the quality of daily life.
