A listed, 17th century chateau, its chapel and its outbuildings on a 10-ha estate near to Rennes.
The capital town of Brittany is 20 minutes away. A TGV train station provides links to Paris taking less than 1½ hours. This property is near to a market town with 7,000 inhabitants, shops, markets selling local produce, primary and secondary schools and amenities. Thick hedges, outstanding trees, sunken lanes, numerous manor houses and old, well-preserved cob houses constitute the local scenery and heritage in a land, heavily marked by its extensive river system.
A little road, bordered by trees, leads to the entrance to this property which extends over a little more than ten hectares. A driveway then runs alongside a wood before dividing into two sections that go around a parterre, enhanced with rose bushes. These two sections then join up in front of the chateau. On either side, a stable faces parklands, which are extended by a large wood and a lake, vestige of the old moat. A chapel stands on the banks of this lake. A garden, behind the chateau, is surrounded by three annexe buildings: a greenhouse, a fruitstore and lastly a forge, reflecting the equestrian vocation of the estate at one time.
The chateauThis chateau stands on the site of an old feudal motte, the features of which, concealed in the estate’s wood, can still be made out. The current house, listed as a French Historic Monument, was built on the top of a small plateau in the 17th century. Spanning approx. 390 m² of living space, it was constructed in an almost square layout, flanked by two semi-engaged, lateral pavilions. It comprises a lower level, a raised ground floor, a first floor and an attic floor. The facades are aligned with three bays on the central building and a single bay on each side of the pavilions. The walls are composed of shale and covered with lime rendering. Limestone was used for the quoins and the surrounds framing the openings. The central building is topped with a hip and sprocket roof, featuring several roof dormers. The imperial roofs on the lateral pavilions and the lanterns, dominating the central bays of the facades, are particularly interesting architectural features. A terrace looking out over the garden is laid out between the two pavilions. A straight flight of stone steps goes down to the garden.
Base level
Entrances to be found on each gable provide access to a dining room, on one side, and to a kitchen, on the other. The kitchen has exposed ceiling beams and joists as well as a sandstone block fireplace. The fireplace in the dining room is composed of a large, small brick hearth with a wooden lintel supported on little corbels. A back kitchen, a storeroom and a boiler room complete this level. Two back stairways go to the floor above.
Ground floor
The porch provides access to the main entrance hall, paved with cement tiles, which opens into a through vestibule, leading to the terrace. In the centre, the wooden stairway is an outstanding example of the 17th century art of carpentry. A lounge and a library are laid out on either side of the vestibule. These rooms, each with their own fireplace, have doors opening on to the terrace which overlooks the garden. A study, following on from the library, is laid out in one of the pavilions. The lounge precedes a toilet, installed in the other pavilion.
First floor
The landing provides access to the three bedrooms, all with parquet flooring laid in a ladder pattern, that compose this floor. The space taken up by two of these bedrooms, with their bathrooms and toilets, extends into the pavilions.
Second floor
The landing provides access to three bedrooms, all with sloping ceilings with exposed trusses, a study, a bathroom and a shower room with a toilet. A stairway leads to a small attic room, used for attic purposes, laid out …
