In a village in the Anjou region, with 4.3 ha and dominating a river, a listed, 17th & 18th century presbytery with outbuildings.
In the midst of a village. Between 5 and 10 minutes from two small towns with all shops and amenities. Some 30 minutes from the town of Angers which has 90-minute TGV train links to Paris, with ten or so daily return journeys. A little over an hour from the towns of Rennes and Nantes.
A pedestrian gate opens off the village square into a terraced garden that looks down on to a courtyard, where bare shale rock can be glimpsed. The presbytery is laid harmoniously out around said courtyard, together with a guest house and a barn. Parklands extend behind the guest house and on one side of the presbytery. At the end of the parklands are a pavilion and a summer house, with a swimming pool. The pavilion marks the property's main entrance which can be reached via a street off the village square. Grasslands, bordering the presbytery's rear facade, and the parklands slope gently down to the river bank.
The presbyteryThe construction period of this presbytery dates back to the 17th and 18th centuries. The central building is extended, on one side, by a pavilion, on the other, by a first wing and, to the rear, by a second wing. The latter, set at right angles to the central building, delimits two terraces that look down on to the river. Built of shale stone, this presbytery spans two levels, one of which is under the rafters. The central building is topped with a Mansard-style roof, the pavilion has a hip roof, whilst those of the wings have two and three slopes. All of the roofs are covered with slate and feature numerous roof dormers. Freestone framing surrounds all the openings and dormers. The facades and roofs have French Historic Monument listing.
An entrance lounge, reached via the courtyard, provides access to the rooms on the ground floor. On one side is a dining room, followed by a kitchen with its stone sink. On the other side, a music room precedes a large lounge-library. Straight on, a hall area houses a stairway and leads to a corridor with a toilet and three bedrooms, including one with a shower room and a toilet as well as another with a bathroom and toilet. All of these rooms feature terracotta floor tiles, French ceilings and indoor shutters. They are also all enhanced by freestone fireplaces, with the exception of one of the bedrooms. The fireplaces in the reception rooms and in one of the two bedrooms are outstanding and, therefore, have French Historic Monument listing. The wooden stairway, with its two flights, its intermediate landing and its balusters is also listed. There is panelling above the door in the music room. The kitchen, the dining room, the lounges and the hall area open directly out on to the terraces on the courtyard and garden sides. A cellar runs under a section of the bedrooms.
The landing leads, on one side, to an archive room, followed by a study and to a hall area on the other. Said hall area provides access to a bedroom, with a bathroom and toilet, as well as to two corridors. The first corridor goes to a bathroom, a toilet and a bedroom, with a bathroom. The second corridor leads to three bedrooms. All of these rooms have terracotta floor tiles, exposed ceiling beams and indoor shutters. Two of the bedrooms have freestone fireplaces.The annex houseThis shale stone house spans two levels, one of which is under the rafters. It is topped with a slate hip roof with upward curving eaves.
