Property Description

This Renaissance period Chateau in need of some refreshing presents well and offers large reception rooms with plenty of natural light and period features. It offers numerous possibilities from family home to professional events and accommodation, and is situated in a great location with rural views whilst only a short distance to motorway, market towns and the city of Le Mans.


THE CHATEAU

Arriving through the trees which open to the park with the château beyond gives one an excellent impression of what to expect with this property…..numerous “hidden gems” lie within. The driveway ends encircling the château offering formal entrance at the front up the steps into the reception hall or, more often used, rear entrance into the hall with feature staircase winding above you.

The ground floor is well laid out with easy access to all the principal rooms which offer views over the park on all sides and original features galore. The main reception room with 4.2m high ceiling is 83 sqm with original herring bone parquet and marble staircase with retractable mirror above revealing a window (with the actual chimney flue hidden off to one side). Just off this reception room is a small tower room and to the other side a large dining hall (30 sqm) again with original parquet flooring, wood panelling and period fireplace. Another circular tower room completes the “front side” of the ground floor. A music room of 38 sqm is double aspect and next to the well equipped kitchen.

Taking the winding stairs up to the first floor we discover a central corridor providing distribution to the 3 guest rooms and tower suites as well as a large 2 bedroom 2 bathroom private suite. The upper floor (needs some refreshing in a couple of rooms) offers 5 further bedrooms with 5 bathrooms. The garden floor (basement) has lavatory facilities, a professional kitchen, cold stores, boiler and laundry rooms as well as storerooms (some refreshing needed on this floor).

OUTSIDE / GROUNDS

The grounds cover approx. 27 hectares with a nice mix of private woodland and park with good rural views.

The main outbuilding measures circa 50m x 7m and covers 2 floors. the ground floor has an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and a large number of individual rooms which have been used for receptions, offices, etc.
The first floor house a large reception/events room (132 sqm) with the remaining rooms mainly bedrooms (staff and guests) and bathrooms.

There is the former stable building also behind this outbuilding. The park is mainly walled and the nearest neighbour is a equestrian centre.

The tennis court is present but has seen better days and the stone artwork and “theatre” are in the park waiting to be rediscovered.

THE AREA AND ACCESS

The market town of La Ferté Bernard is under 15 mins away with direct access to the autoroute “L’Oceane” A11 (Paris to Nantes) putting both Paris and the Atlantique coast within easy reach. The city of Le Mans is a comfortable 45 mins drive away .. an ideal placement for guests to stay as tourists and participants for the 24 hour race for example.

A charming French chateau at a realistic price taking into account some improvement work being necessary to bring it back to the fabulous state it was 10 years ago. REDUCED PRICE!
