Description

A listed manor house in 3 hectares of parklands 2½ hours fro

8 km from a TGV train station with 40-minute links to Paris and 3 km from the nearest shops. In a hamlet. A land of bocage countryside between the Perch region and the Loir valley, where scattered, little woods, hamlets, plateaus and small valleys contribute to the rich landscape. Once a stately home, constructed in the 15th century on the site of a Knights Templar commandery, it was to be protected a century later, when the Catholics and the Protestants opposed one another, by a perimeter wall on three sides, the river delimiting the fourth side. In the 16th century, residents set up home within the perimeter walls, protecting the courtyard with its house and the outer bailey with its outbuildings, the two separated by a wall, the ruins of which are stil l visible. Over the years, with peace restored, these walls were opened on to parklands and a garden. The 2 hectares of parklands, beyond and to the north of the perimeter wall, are bordered, on one side, by a river and, on the other, by a shrub hedge running alongside the country lane. The garden, also outside of the perimeter walls on the west side, is enclosed by walls and fencing. It is crossed from east to west by an alleyway, lined with cypress trees, giving a view of the house. A second alleyway, perpendicular to the first, crosses the garden to the gates opening on to the parklands. It is then extended by a row of maple trees as far as a laurel parterre.
