with guest bedrooms in the castle and function rooms in the orangeries
This property is in the countryside on the outskirts of a market town, with all shops and amenities. Near to large tourist sites, it is set in the midst of the populated urban areas of Nantes and Angers. The A87 is nearby.
Although the origins of this castle date back to the 12th century, construction of the actual building took place at a later time. Major renovation works carried out in the last quarter of the 19th century provided real comfort and true modernity, still the case today. It has, however, kept the appearance of the original fortress. In addition to the reception rooms, it comprises two private flats and four guest bedrooms.
These outbuildings comprise two orangeries, a section of the old tenant farmhouse and another building.
Two recently constructed, adjoining orangeries have been installed in the parklands. Their architecture reflects the “Eiffel” style, featuring a metallic framework, without interior pillars, and numerous glazed openings, letting in copious amounts of light and providing a view over the parklands and the castle. Spanning a floor surface area of approx. 350 m², they are able to seat up to 250 covers.
The old tenant farmhouse awaits renovation. Plans have already been drawn up and a planning permission granted. Its roofing framework and roof is in a good state of repair. Water and electricity are laid on.
And lastly, an amusing building, once used as a kennel and an aviary, could also be renovated and converted (initial thoughts include, for example, the creation of a swimming pool-spa-relaxation area).
Spanning a total surface area of almost four hectares, these parklands are composed of vast lawns, planted with trees, some of which are outstanding. A terrace in front of the castle’s main facade looks out over a wide, undulating landscape of extremely pleasant bocage countryside. It is adjoined by a swimming pool.
In superb countryside and easy to reach, this castle, its orangeries, its outbuildings and its parklands form a setting perfectly suited to all types of events, whether for family and friends or for professional purposes. With the castle and the recently installed orangeries, the facilities are first-class. They could be further optimised through the conversion of the outbuildings or the creation of a professional kitchen in the orangeries. The existing, already large market has significant development potential, notably amongst the companies to be found in this economically dynamic region. It should be noted that the castle cannot be sold separately from its current business activity. A virtual visit and full details will be forwarded to would-be buyers interested in purchasing this property on request.
