An unusual, late 19th century mansion house in a quiet street
in the centre of Angers, 90 minutes from Paris


Near Place-du-Ralliement and its theatre, the main pedestrian shopping streets and the wide boulevards in the city of Angers. Just a stone’s throw from Mail Gardens and its wealth of weekly markets. In the middle of a safe, semi-pedestrian street which only residents can access by car. Near to two tram stops. The TGV train station is some ten minutes’ walk away (about ten daily return journeys to Paris just 90 minutes away).


This mansion house is in a little street with homogeneous architecture, representative of the town centre. A superb, 19th century, dressed stone office building facing it spans but two stories. The mansion house, built over cellars, comprises ground and first floors as well as two other floors under attic space.

The mansion house

A central porch way, comprising five granite stone steps, leads to the double entrance doors, flanked by two rounded, inset columns and topped with a richly sculpted arch moulding. A scrolled pediment crowns this decor composed of an oak branch, a laurel branch, scrolls, acanthus leaves and a central rose. The surrounds of the ground floor openings all have moulded trim. The two, slightly arched bays that open on to curved balconies with balusters, have acanthus leaved fasteners. The facade features rusticated stone masonry decor on the ground floor and moulding on the first floor. A dentil course supports the slate roof with its Mansard-style roof break and three semi-circular arched roof dormers.
The rear facade is adorned with two freestone watchtowers topped with tall slate candlesnuffer roofs. The central door is flanked by two conservatories, one of which forms a quarter circle. All these openings provide access to a wooden, landscaped terrace, spanning approx. 70 m², with a structure inspired by a 4-poster bed including lounge and dining room areas.

Ground floor
The entrance, with a superb state stairway, the foot of which features two Italian stone columns, provides access to the reception rooms with parquet flooring and moulded ceilings. The lounge, featuring Art Nouveau panelling, has a wooden fireplace in the same style, adorned with the heads of two cherubs and stylised decor featuring arabesques, leaves and flowers. This lounge is illuminated by a large French window which opens on to a balcony. It communicates with a study that is extended towards the terrace by a large conservatory. The walls of the study are adorned with exotic wood, apart from one which is lined with mirrors. On the other side of the entrance hall, the dining room has a marble fireplace and a wide French window, opening on to the second balcony. This is separated from the kitchen by double glazed doors. The fully fitted kitchen still has its original cement floor tiles and is extended by a quarter circle conservatory which also opens on to the terrace. The state stairway comprises a first central flight of steps leading up to a landing with access to a toilet, and then two flights of steps leading up on either side to the first floor landing. The first three steps are of stone, whilst the rest of the stairway is made of wood. It has wrought iron railings featuring an outstanding design and a wooden handrail. The stairwell is illuminated via a Clamens stained glass window featuring cherubs flying with a dove, decorated with festoons and a lion’s head.
First floor
The landing provides access to the large lounge with a marble fireplace, parquet flooring and ceiling mouldings, a guest bedroom with a marble fireplace, parquet flooring and a shower room with a toilet, as well as a second study. A wooden stairway, going up from this landing, provides access to the second floor.
Second floor
The hall area provides access to a first bedroom and its bathroom, both with luxury fixtures and fittings, a second bedroom with a marble fireplace and a shower room as well as a dressing room and a toilet. The stairway providing access to the third floor goes upstairs from the dressing room.
Third floor
This vast area under the rafters has been converted with a bedroom section, a lounge section and a study section. It is illuminated via four skylights.
Spanning the same floor surface area as the ground floor, the cellars are divided into five rooms, including the boiler room.

Our opinion

Completely defying any form of classification and fashion, this mansion house displays a dandy air such that it is able to blend with all styles. In an amazing architectural combination, it gallantly manages to unite Medieval with Art Nouveau and Victorian with Arabic, together with moderate touches of Renaissance, Second Empire and Colonial styles. Its extreme luminosity and spaciousness enhances its outstanding numerous architectural features, some of which are listed, as well as the luxury conversions carried out by its current owners. Most pleasant to live in, its site in the heart of a historic town, recently classed number 1 in France for its all-round attractiveness, is one of its major assets.
