A 17th-century chateau with an equestrian centre, on 93 ha of nature reserve north of Anjou.
The estate is located 50 km north of Angers, 250 km from Paris, and 10 km from the A10 motorway. There is an airfield 20 km away, and a train station provides a link to Paris-Montparnasse in 1hr15, and to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport in 2 hours by TGV high-speed rail.
The property is less than an hour away from the Loire Valley (Anjou), and from Le Mans and its renowned medieval quarter, featuring courtyards and gardens... Less than 10 km away, a town steeped in history offers all necessary amenities. There is also a golf course 30 km away.
The estate sits on 93 ha of rolling countryside and woodland, adorned with several water features. It is the culmination of more than 10 years work, scrupulously designed to exist in harmony with its natural surroundings and wildlife.
Accordingly, the main building is reached by two tree-lined lanes winding deep into the natural countryside. An equestrian centre installed on the upper section of the estate includes numerous buildings and facilities. Continuing through the estate, you will come upon an intimate, elegant chateau, which has been completely renovated with modern comforts. The chateau was originally built in the mid-17th century by master masons and carpenters. In the second half of the 19th century, the upper floors of the building were reorganised. With a surface area of around 500 m², the building comprises six bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms or shower rooms, and several reception rooms. Nearby stand a chapel, an outbuilding, and a courtyard flanked by a guest house, a summer house, and a boiler room.
The estate can be officially subdivided into two distinct properties that may be purchased separately, each with its own entrance. Lot 1 comprises the chateau, and its approximately 67 hectares of meadows and forest, for 1,895,000€, fees included (to be sold before Lot 2). Lot 2 includes the equestrian facilities, two buildings, and some 27 hectares of land, for 883,000€, fees included.
The chateauThe chateau was completely renovated to the highest standard between 2011 and 2015. The rectangular main building is flanked by two adjoining symmetrical pavilions, extending lengthwise out from the central structure. The building has three floors, and a Trélazé slate roof. The whitewashed facades are interspersed with numerous windows, equally spaced across the front of the building. On the ground floor, the reception rooms and kitchen are bathed in daylight from both sides of the house. A large wooden staircase leads to six bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, over the two upstairs floors. At the rear of the building, a gravel esplanade extends along the chateaus facade. This terraced area is ornamented with sections of lawn, and interspersed with topiary work. Rectangular steps lead down to a small pool. From here, you can enjoy a south-west facing view of the entire estate.
The spacious entrance opens onto a painted, panelled vestibule with oak-strip flooring. The ground-floor reception rooms all lead to this vestibule, whose large, main wooden staircase revolves up four right-angle flights to the next floor. The high ceiling adds to the airy, spacious feel, and highlights the double doors leading to the various rooms. To one side, a reception room leads into the spacious kitchen. Further back, toward the rear-terrace side of the building, is an office. To the other side, a corridor leads to the drawing-room-cum-library, which itself opens into a Louis-XIII-style dining room. The three state rooms are bright and spacious. They open onto a terrace, on the garden side of the house, and enjoy an uninterrupted view over the forestland and water features. These rooms are decorated with Louis-XV-era wood panelling, and ...
