Property description
In a riverside village near to Angers, a 17th & 19th century presbytery with outbuildings and a garden - ref 272977
In a market town, near to its church and dominating the valley with a river run through. The village has all shops and amenities, a secondary school as well as a weekly market. The very busy town of Angers is less than 20 minutes away. A fast train line provides 90-minute links to Paris with about ten daily return journeys. Slip roads for the A11 and A85 motorways are 3 km away.
A village street leads to an entrance porchway, opening into a courtyard, enclosed by the church on one side, an outbuilding along the street and garages on another side. The courtyard is laid out in front of the presbytery. A terrace at the back runs the full length of the facade, with a flight of stone steps providing access to the part of the garden that is on a lower level. These steps continue down to the riverside and join up with the towpath. The view on this side of the presbytery stretches into the distance, taking in the valley.

The presbytery

This presbytery was constructed in the 17th century and then redesigned in the 19th century. It comprises a central building, flanked at each end of the front facade with a pentagonal tower. One of the latter contains living rooms, whilst the other houses a spiral stairway. The presbytery spans three levels, one of which is under the rafters, topped with a slate, gable roof. The towers obviously have their own roofs. Freestone forms the surrounds framing the openings, the quoins and the cornices.

The outbuildings

The outbuildings are composed, on the one hand, of a house following on from the entrance porchway, bordering the village street and facing the presbytery and, on the other hand, of a large garage standing at right angles to it. This house is laid out as a guest house with a shower room and a toilet on the ground floor. It spans a floor surface area of approx. 120 m². Two cellars can be reached from the outside.

Our opinion
This presbytery is ideally located in the midst of a village, near to a busy town. Its immediate surroundings are outstanding and protected. The presbytery looks down on to the river and the immense stretches of bocage countryside bordering it. Fully restored, its light, bright interiors look out over the completely unspoilt local landscapes. A family living here all year round will have all necessary modern-day home comforts and facilities. However, it would also make a particularly pleasant holiday home.
