Utterly charming small chateau for sale, East/West facing, set 30 metres above a fast flowing river which further down the bank, passes a Mill with its wheel which dates from the 15th Century and which also belongs to the property. A small town only 4 kms away has basic shops and the TGV station of Laval is within 45 minutes drive.

A long private driveway leads to the courtyard of the castle where there is a garage for two cars and a building adjoining with three horse boxes and a large attic above. On the return of the building is another building with a first floor room with large fireplace, an unfinished room with an attic above, and a Kennel.

The Chateau. Approximately 450m2 of living space comprising:

Ground Floor: Entrance hall with oak staircase, Small Salon and main Salon, Study, dining room, kitchen, small winter garden which also serves as an entrance. There is a boiler room/ laundry room and an unused room. W.C.

First Floor: Four bedrooms each with shower room or bathroom. W.C.

Second Floor: Attic floor. Five rooms, one of which has a washbasin.

Cellar under part of the house.

Oil fired C.H. with Ideal Standard boiler
Mains water.
The property is inhabited all the year round. The last renovation work was carried out in the seventies ( wiring, bathrooms, heating decoration etc).
The roof is of slate with hooks.
Outbuildings ( continued)
Adjoining the park to the south of the estate, is:-

A small farmhouse with living room/ kitchen, three bedrooms and a shower room w.C.
The individual sanitation will certainly require to be brought up to present Eu Normes. The slate roofing with nails is also tired.

The miller's house and the bakery as well as small sheds are set in a delightful ‘u shaped’ group and it seems as though history has stopped here.

The Mill
Just below, along the river, the 15th-century mill is ready to set all its mechanisms in motion.
Between the miller's house and the farmhouse, there is a shed on wooden posts.

A beautiful park of just over 13 hectares ( 32 acres) including 2.5 hectares ( 6,17 acres) of unencumbered meadows forms a high-quality setting for this property.

Since 1995, the dam and the ford on the river, the miller's house, the common oven, the mill with its mechanism and milling utensils are registered on the Supplementary Inventory of Historical Monuments.

Rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful property, full of character of a manageable size in an unblighted setting with great potential with all its outbuildings.

Additional jpg images and floor plans available upon request. It is envisaged that there is some modernisation work to carry out in terms of upgrading septic tanks for example amongst other things.
