Property description
An 18th century mansion house, with outbuildings and a garden, in one of the Anjou region’s historic towns - ref 774857
This residence stands in the midst of a historic town, with a wealth of heritage. The town has all shops and amenities which are within walking distance. A renowned golf course is nearby. Angers and Saumur are about half an hour away and the banks of the river Loire are less than 25 km away. The A11 and A85 motorways are within easy reach.
This mansion house was constructed at right angles to the street where, in olden days, the town’s most outstanding large residences were built. The large gateway of the entrance porch opens into a paved courtyard with, on one side, the mansion house, its gable bordering the street, and, at the end, an outbuilding that was once the stable and home to the groom. The garden, almost entirely enclosed by walls, is laid out beyond the mansion house’s west gable and behind the outbuilding.

The mansion house

This mansion house, constructed from stone and lime-rendered quarry stone blocks, spans three levels, one of which is attic space. It comprises a main building extended, behind its west gable, by a second and a third building. All have slate roofs featuring roof dormers. Freestone has been used for framing around the openings, the quoins and the cornices. All the windows are fitted with wooden shutters which are slatted on the first floor. A porch way in the paved courtyard leads to two French windows belonging to the main building and a few steps go up to the entrance door set in the second building. Three cellars under the residence, one of which houses a boiler room, can also be reached from the courtyard.

The outbuildings

The first building comprises an old stable, an old garage where horse-drawn carriages were kept and an old dwelling for the groom, with a marble fireplace, and terracotta floor tiles, and lastly a scullery. A large attic upstairs is illuminated via two roof dormers.
The second building, standing at right angles behind the first one, is currently used for storage purposes.

The garden

The garden is completely enclosed by walls and reached via a wicket gate from the paved courtyard. It comprises a lawn, planted with trees, including a persimmon tree, and four parterres, surrounded by boxwood and separated by alleyways. These parterres contain flowers, bushes and fruit trees.

Our opinion
Verdant undulating countryside, vast oak wood forests, old villages and their precious churches as well as the majestic river Loire are additional reasons for coming to live in the age-old royal town, one of the gems of which is this mansion house. The latter is concealed by its tall gates and the walls enclosing the garden. Late 18th century reserve is reflected in the interior decoration, together with the features of successive eras. Large windows let in copious amounts of daylight. Elegance obviously goes hand in hand with a pleasant way of life here.
