A 19th century chateau, with 12 ha of parklands, grasslands and woods, bordered by a stream on the outskirts of a village 30 minutes from Le-Mans.
In the area around Le-Mans, 230 km from Paris. 10 km from two A11 and A81 motorway interchanges. 30 minutes from two TGV train stations, with 55-minute links to Paris and 105-minute direct links to Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle. 25 minutes from Le-Mans aerodrome and another 10 minutes from the town, its old Plantagenet centre and its various events (“Cours et Jardin”, etc.). The 24-hour Le-Mans endurance car race takes place around an internationally renowned road circuit, where the Porsche driving school is to be found. Two golf courses are a good 30 minutes away: the Golf-du-Circuit (set in the middle of the circuit, by the mythical Hunaudières straight) and the Golf-de-Solesmes.
35 minutes from Le-Pôle-Européen-du-Cheval equestrian centre.
The village has all local shops such as a bakery, a butchery and a small supermarket as well as a doctor. A small town just a few kilometres away has more shops and amenities such as a supermarket and a secondary school.
This chateau once belonged to Madame-de-Montesson and was the first building to be constructed in a Renaissance style by architect Pierre-Félix-Delarue. It was built in 1842 on the site of an old stately home that dated from the late Middle-Ages. The outbuildings reflect decor characteristic of the middle of the 17th century (cornices, fluted modillion friezes and a roof dormer with a pediment). The chapel was constructed in 1846.
The entrance to these premises, enclosed by high walls, is marked by impressive stone pillars. A driveway, lined with superb trees, crosses the closed entrance courtyard, enclosed by large outbuildings. Behind the latter, two pavilions face the chateau between the main courtyard and the garden. The chapel is on the left-hand side. Beyond extend grasslands and woods. Parklands continue, on the right-hand side of the main courtyard, as far as walls, separating the property from the village. The swimming pool area is on this side, near to the outbuildings. Behind the chateau, a stream runs along the border of the parklands and the view stretches out over grasslands.
The chateauThe entrance facade of this rectangular chateau features a central projection, flanked by two polygonal towers, and corner turrets enhanced by corbelling. The rear facade has two round corner towers and turrets featuring corbelling. The latter crown a balcony which gives the old billiards’ room, now a large lounge, an outside entrance. They are enhanced with medieval decoration comprising imitation machicolation and battlements. Most of the decoration is to be found on the projections. Moulded stone pediments and balconies are adorned with the Montesson and Ogier-d’Ivry family coats-of-arms. Facing east-west, this luminous chateau underwent major renovation works 20 years ago when all the roofs were redone with Angers slate, all the doors and windows were changed and double-glazing was installed. In addition, the plumbing and electric wiring was redone and heating was installed, whilst the bath and shower rooms as well as the toilets were renovated.
