Property Description

Well presented French château with outbuildings/guest houses set on 27 hectares of woodland and parkland with scope for an on-site activity... The original 16th century construction has been modified over the centuries to what we now see today being a much more imposing character building sitting proudly on the hill overlooking the river valley. The changes throughout the ages have been based upon family size, design of the times or purely the whim of the current owner. The recent additions of the sizeable outbuildings added in the 1950's and used as a “holiday de Vacances” establishment – these would make ideal event rooms (marriages, birthdays, seminars, workshops, etc...) with plenty of extra space and living accommodation.


The Château

The château itself is well proportioned over the four floors with a formal staircase and two smaller ones. The entrance hall is grand and centrally placed with access to the stairs and reception rooms, these are true to the period with marble fireplaces, wood paneling, high ceilings, parquet floors and large south/view facing windows. The kitchen has been sympathetically modernized and leads directly to the dining hall, dining room and corner lounge. Along with the large receptions rooms various studies and libraries provide quiet working space on this floor and there is access to the 'garden level' below.

The first floor houses the master suite, second suite and three further guest rooms also with en suite facilities and three salons. The top floor rather than the typical small corridors and staff quarters has been opened up to provide large “loft” style bedrooms and lounges. The garden level has numerous rooms including laundry, games room, wine cellar, boiler room, etc...

Outside

The 27 hectare plot has approximately 19 hectares of woodland and 8 hectares of parkland and meadow. The former château’s pavillons are still standing and offer today at least two individual guest lodges (some updating required). The 'refectory' offers approx. 350 sqm in one single open-plan room with superb south facing windows creating an excellent setting for weddings, events, seminars, etc. etc. and within the same building space that once was a professional kitchen and toilet facilities – recreating an activity here is more than feasible. The other outbuildings were used more recently (1970's) as accommodation for children during the holidays and the structure and infrastructure are ripe for a new project.


About the area

The château is located on a hill overlooking the river valley of Le Loir. Around 20 mins from the Angers/Marcé airport, 30 or so mins into Angers and motorway access (Le Mans, Paris, Angers, Tours, Nantes) close by. The local villages have a selection of amenities with larger supermarkets 20 mins away.


Very well presented with plenty of space for family and friends with scope for an on-site activity if required. NEW PRICE!
