Manor Le Mans (72)

  • Surface 100 m2
  • Rooms 5 
  • Bedrooms 3 
  • Land 5.4 ha

West of Le-Mans, in over 5 hectares, dominating a river and bocage countryside, a 15th century manor house and its outbuildings.
On the outskirts of Le-Mans, some 20 km from the town centre and the TGV train station, with its 55-minute links to Paris-Montparnasse. Le-Mans has very good motorway and rail connections, making it easy to reach. Ten or so kilometres from slip roads on to the A11 and A81 motorways. 30 minutes from two golf courses. Le-Pôle-Européen-du-Cheval equestrian centre. All shops are to be found in a village less than 3 km away.
A good part of this estate, extending over more than 5 ha of parklands and flower-filled grasslands planted with numerous species of trees, borders a peaceful river. A long driveway provides access to the residence which is, consequently, immersed in natural surroundings and in a dominant position with views on every side. A very tall, elegant tower comes into sight around a bend in the driveway. Standing on a fortified terrace, it is a vestige of an old manor house, dating from the 15th century. Further along the driveway, an outbuilding can be glimpsed on the left-hand side. It comprises a barn, also dating from the 15th century, with a little adjoining house. Vast grasslands on the right-hand side of the driveway are planted with walnut and other trees. The drive leads to a renovated outbuilding in use as a garage, a shed and a workshop. A panoramic view from the fortified terrace takes in the river and, on either side, plains laid out on varying levels, creating different areas and landscapes.
All that remains of the manor house dominating the river is a building resembling a pavilion, with a few vestiges of 15th century construction and a barn dating from the same era. It would be possible to envisage the reconstruction of the original manor house here, on the fortified terrace, adjoining the tall tower on the site of the old manor house shown on the 1843 map.
The tall towerStanding on a vast fortified terrace, this tall tower is the vestige of a 15th century manor house which was redesigned in the 19th century. Spanning four levels, it is built of lime-rendered stone and topped with a slate roof. Its quoins are exposed. Full restoration works, carried out using natural materials in accordance with ancestral know-how, were completed in 2016. The resulting restauration was awarded prizes by the county council as well as the “Vieilles Maisons Françaises” (Old French Houses Association) and given the French Heritage Foundation Label.
