A residence, dating from the 19th century, in parklands with trees over a hundred years old in a residential village just 8 minutes from Le-Mans TGV train station.
Le-Mans has good motorway and rail connections. Its TGV train station has 55-minute links to Paris-Montparnasse as well as a direct 1¾-hour link to Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport and is less than 3 hours from Lyon, 5 hours from Marseille and 2½ hours from Lille-Europe train station for London. 200 km from the centre de Paris via the A11 motorway, just 5 minutes away. Le-Mans, an hour away from the Loire Valley (Anjou and Touraine), was originally a 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), it hosts many events such as markets selling local produce and the “Entre Cours et Jardins” flower show.
20 minutes from Le-Man’s 24-hour racing circuit with the Porsche-Experience-Centre driving school. 5 minutes from a golf course and the Le-Pôle-Européen-du-Cheval equestrian centre. A market, shops, all schools, a university, a theatre, a cinema and a hospital are all less than 10 minutes away. Near to intercity public transport services.
This mansion house, to the north of Le-Mans with a view of its cathedral, stands in listed, wooded parklands, set back off a street leading to a residential village. The property is enclosed by hedges and old, high walls. Remote-controlled, wrought iron gates open on to a main, grassy courtyard, encircled by a driveway that leads to a concealed parking area. Screened by a row of trees, wide parklands planted with majestic trees are crossed by shady pathways. These parklands adjoin the rear of the building, the outbuildings, followed by a garden and an orchard. A house, with a separate entrance, is currently rented out. Although opening on to another street, it can still be reached on foot from the parklands. This peaceful haven is protected from the external hustle and bustle by its verdant setting.
Priests, generals and builders have lived on these premises. The current residence was only built in 1850 by Jules-Lemercier, former director of the Egyptian Mission and partner of Ferdinand-de-Lesseps, builder of the Suez Canal. Jules-Lemercier tried planting trees from Central Asia and Asia Minor in the parklands and some specimens are still to be found there today.
The residenceThis residence is composed of a main rectangular building constructed from rendered quarry stone blocks. Spanning four levels over a partial basement, it is enhanced with white stone quoins and surrounds framing the openings. The house is topped with a half-hipped roof, with a break, all covered with Angers slate. The roofs also feature Jacobin-style roof dormers and chimney stacks. Triangular zinc pediments adorn several of the roof dormers and slatted wooden shutters protect all the windows. The large windows, the frames of which have been changed, let in copious amounts of light on the south and north sides. The walls, decorated in light hues, and the through light make these premises extremely luminous. The latter still have numerous old decorative features such as marble floors, parquet flooring, double doors, stained glass windows, panelling, cornices and indoor shutters. These have been integrated with contemporary forms and structures, resulting in a very distinctive character. All the rooms have built-in sound systems with individual controls. A contemporary hanging terrace, with a metal floor and railings, blends beautifully with the rest of the architecture. A horseshoe-shaped porch provides access to the building.

Double front doors, featuring stained glass panels in their upper sections, open into a vast vestibule, with black and pinkish marble floor tiles. Once across …
