A spacious, 15th century manor house, with outbuildings forming a courtyard and 7 ha, alongside a wild river in French bocage countryside, 30 minutes from Le-Mans.
On the periphery of Le-Mans, 30 minutes from the town centre and a TGV train station with its 55-minute links to Paris-Montparnasse. Le-Mans has good motorway and rail connections: 1¾ hours from Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport, less than 3 hours from Lyon, less than 5 hours from Marseille, 2½ hours from Lille-Europe train station for London, 1½ hours from Nantes and from Rennes.
Le-Mans, an hour away from the Loire Valley, still has an interesting, wonderfully preserved medieval town, known as Plantagenet City. Protected by a perimeter wall dating from the Gallo-Roman era (the best preserved of its type after those of Rome and Istanbul). Many events are held there such as abundant markets selling local produce and the annual “Entre Cours et Jardins” flower show.
The village’s small shops, bar and restaurant can be reached on foot or by bike.
On the outskirts of a village, at the end of a long lane planted with tall trees, visitors discover this property which, dating from the 15th century, was extended in the 18th century and stands on the edge of a wild river. In a first section are outbuildings, some of which, also dating from the 15th century, are of a good size. The lane continues down past the last outbuildings to reveal the manor house which forms a courtyard, also delimited by the river. On the right-hand side of the courtyard is a large dovecote. Beyond the river, the view stretches over the meadows where several horses gambol. At the end of the courtyard, reached via an open passageway between the house and the former sculleries, is a landscape garden where the river continues to flow along one of its sides. The house’s rear terrace dominates this tranquil scenery, providing a delightful view with a meadow in the distance. To the rear, houses are set at right angles. Dominating the valley, a plot of land spreads out back towards the entrance lane and the farm buildings.
The three houses are all interconnected. Taken as a whole, they form a spacious, practical home which can be used for a variety of purposes depending on the season and the number of guests. Each house has its own entrance. It would also be very easy to separate these living areas.
The newly converted house: 250 m².
The 15th century house: 142 m².
The house converted in the 18th century: 148 m².
The newly converted houseThis is the first house, converted from the old stables, to be seen when reaching the property. Windows have been added to the attic space to give an architectural unity to the entire residence. This rectangular building is built of exposed stone, with a slate roof on the facade side and a tile roof on the opposing side. The door and window frames, some reflecting the Renaissance style, have all been changed and double glazed, without shutters. This house is entered via an outstanding old door, featuring a heavy door knocker. A wide vestibule, with bare flagstones, houses a stairway, with Louis XIII style balusters, which goes upstairs to five bedrooms and four shower rooms, with toilets. On the right-hand side of the ground floor is a spacious lounge, with a fireplace and a piano bar for pleasant evenings. This precedes a contemporary fitted kitchen, with a wood-burning stove. A back kitchen is laid out as a machine room. On the left-hand side of the entrance hall, a small, Louis XV style lounge features a stone fireplace. It is followed by the oldest house.
