Property Description

A traditional Mancelle house of solid stone construction with 4 habitable floors offering over 130 sqm of space comfortably divided and with beams, exposed stone walls and original fireplaces throughout. This property was once home to the Monk’s of the cathedral and the entrance to the underground passageway is still there in, what is now wine cellar below the basement room.

A complete new rewiring, modernisation and mains drainage make this home an ideal lock and leave holiday home or permanent depending upon your requirements and with a 3 minute walk to local schools, shops, cafes, restaurants, three times-a-week famous “Marché Jacobins” (authentic French gastronomy products 2 minutes walk away) etc. as well as direct access to Paris in circa 1 hour by TGV this is also an ideal investment for those wishing to enjoy all the trappings of the area (wine, countryside, the famous 24 hour Le Mans race, etc...).

The Accommodation

From the cobbled street we enter the hallway and then into the lounge/diner. We were instantly impressed with the large amount of natural light flooding in from the large double glazed windows both front and back. This room with it’s exposed stone walls and timbers coupled with the large open fireplace gives an immediate glimpse back into days gone by and it’s only the furniture and the now high level of comfort (mains gas heating, high speed internet and TV) that bring us back to the modern age. Steps up from this room lead past the wc to the well equipped galley kitchen with large windows overlooking the private courtyard (used as the al-fresco dining area).

Stone stairs down from the lounge lead to the “party room” this original vaulted room has a raised area above the wine cellar and has been used for long evenings with friends as the noise insulation thanks to the thick walls is superb, an ideal room for entertaining. The original wooden staircase leads up from the lounge to the first floor – here once used as a bedroom the 25 sqm are now laid out as a second lounge/reading room with the private bathroom just off this room. This former bedroom is double aspect and again with feature fireplace, timbers and stone walls (both tuffeau and granite). Continuing up the stairs we have another bedroom; currently used as an office with the former bathroom now a fitness room and the large walk-in wardrobe/dressing room next to it.

The top floor is the master suite with double aspect and views of the rear of the cathedral on one side and over the rooftops towards the Sarthe river on the other. A large pitched/vaulted room with en-suite bathroom, bed area as well as plenty of room for a reading desk etc.

Outside

The courtyard is decked and has a permanent BBQ and plenty of space for tables, chairs and parasol with again views of the rear of the cathedral. Free (or subsidised depending on availability of spaces) residential parking is close by with the option of renting (again reduced residency rates) town owned underground parking as well.
