Priced for a quick sale this is going to make a fantastic home for whoever gets to snap it up. 6.5hectares with nearly 300m of river frontage with your own jetty for mooring that river cruiser, purpose built stables, an extensive longere (with new roof) ripe for renovating, garage, hanger, paddocks, pool, etc. etc. all within a very short drive of Lion d'Angers and 20 mins to Angers : what more could you ask for?
The manor dates back to the XVI century with the last recorded work taking place in the XVII century. Commissioned and owned by the local lord and knight and his wife this manor was later embellished in a renaissance style. Its placement on the banks of the Mayenne river near one of the principal routes to Angers via Lion d'Angers provide proof of it's noble beginnings. Today it offers the opportunity for someone to continue the renovations already well underway. The manor needs a kitchen but with a choice of at least two rooms to place it the new owners can take their time in deciding where best suits their lifestyle. The reception rooms are well appointed with plenty of original features and the ground floor already benefits from underfloor heating in the principal rooms. The two upper floors provide ample space for family and friends with 3 large bedrooms on the 1st floor and 2 bathrooms and then 5 bedrooms on the upper floor (a restructuring and better distribution of the rooms would be beneficial and easy to do). Heating is up to spec and speed but the drainage needs seeing to (study has been done and can be provided). Structurally it appears in very good order with just in internal makeover needed on some of the bedrooms and bathrooms.
Outside of the manor to the rear we have a sizeable garden and terrace leading to the river bank and also a pool that has seen better days. The courtyard to the front provides a formal entrance at the end of a long tree lined drive and plentiful parking with the extensive longere to one side. This building has benefited from a new roof and is ripe for conversion/restoration into guest accommodation as required. The new purpose built stable block and hanger combined with the enclosed paddocks highlight the lifestyle that this home would provide and with close proximity to Lion d'Angers and its world famous haras and equestrian events the potential for rental returns from visiting jockies and owners along with their horses is there to be exploited. The estate covers a little over 6.5 hectares of private land with a formal gated entrance and separate stone built garage.
