Property description
A 15th & 17th century manor house, with its guest house, its outbuildings and its garden, in a village in the Anjou region - ref 822135
In the midst of a quiet village in the Anjou region. Near to a historic town with all shops and amenities (about 5 km away). 30 minutes from Saumur and 45 minutes from Angers, both with links to Paris via the fast train line. Some 15 minutes from slip roads for the A85 motorway and 25 minutes from slip roads for the A11 motorway.
The entrance gates, flanked by two freestone pillars, open into a partially paved courtyard, closed on one of its sides by the wall bordering the street and on the other three by the outbuildings, the manor and the guest house. A doorway, in the corner formed by the manor and the guest house, opens on to a terrace, laid out alongside the manor’s north gable wall and the raised garden extending it. This fully enclosed garden can also be directly reached via a gate off the street which goes around the property. The terrace also provides access to the cellar.

The manor house

Once a priory, its origins date back to the 15th century. Redesigned in the 17th century, it comprises a main residence, flanked in its centre by a hexagonal, freestone stairway turret, with windows topped with ogee arches. Constructed from lime-rendered, quarry stone blocks, it spans three levels, one of which is under the rafters. Its main facade features wide, regularly spaced, arched windows. The framing around the openings, the cornices, the quoins and the roof dormers are made of freestone. It is topped with a gable, slate roof, featuring roof dormers and crowned with a bell-tower.

The outbuildings

The outbuildings comprise three buildings including an 85 m² guest house constructed of lime-rendered, quarry stone blocks. Spanning two levels, one of which is under the rafters, it is covered with a gable, slate roof, featuring elegant, rounded, freestone roof dormers. The ground floor comprises a storeroom, a boiler room (a total of 25 m²) and a lounge which can also be directly accessed from the street. A wooden stairway goes from the lounge up to a first bedroom, with a bathroom and a toilet, and then to a second bedroom under the rafters.
A 21 m², lock-up garage-workshop, set at right angles, and a 22 m², covered area that is open on two sides.

Our opinion
This manor house can be clearly seen in the midst of the village, very near to the listed church. One of the finest in the village, it has all of the Anjou region’s architectural codes such as elegant facades, a hexagonal, freestone tower and steep slate roofs with roof dormers. This property also has the renowned features of this land’s pleasant way of life, namely vast, bright rooms with outstanding fireplaces and a sheltered garden, ideal for taking meals during clement weather. Near to large forests and the Loire Valley, the surroundings are ideal for taking interesting walks. These wonderful premises, in pristine condition, could then appeal both as a main residence and a holiday home.
