Interesting, delightful former stone mill house with large annexe, outbuildings, garage and the remains of a windmill. 4 bedrooms. Attic conversion to complete.
Located in historic village of St Michel en l'Herm. 5 kms from Vendée beaches at La Faute-sur-Mer. Transport links are excellent - 44 kms to La Rochelle and 110kms to Nantes.
This delightful former mill house (200m²) is spacious and detached with huge potential on the first floor and the annexe for additional accommodation. The property could easily lend itself to becoming a chambre d'hôtes and/or gîte. It is set in a quiet lane on the edge of the village within walking distance to local amenities.
On the ground floor there is a large sitting room with French windows to the garden and a fireplace original beams and high ceilings. The spacious fitted kitchen lies in the centre of the house next to a large room which is currently being used as an office. This room has an inter-connecting door to the rear double bedroom with views to the garden and the Marais beyond. Conservatory with exposed stone overlooking the rear garden. There is a useful laundry room which also houses the boiler, a separate WC with hand basin and a bathroom which includes a bath, shower, WC and hand basin and a storage cupboard. To the rear of the property lie three further spacious bedrooms, one with a huge dressing room and an en suite shower room with WC. Gas fired central heating throughout.
Wooden stairs lead up to the enormous partially converted attic space (157m²). This space could be configured in a variety of ways. There are six windows in place and the whole area is extremely well insulated.
The adjacent annexe (95m²) has been renovated with a view to create a separate living space with room for a sitting room, kitchen and bedroom. It has its own independent entrance and gate to the road. There is plenty of potential!
There is also a separate garage (20m²) situated at the entrance gate with a small adjacent outbuilding. The old windmill still has its spiral steps inside and often a resident owl! There is also a log store and a well with a pump.
The huge garden (2,2 hectares) is planted with a variety of fruit trees; walnut, cherry, apricot and peach. The garden is also laid to lawn with a selection of rambling roses. The attached five acre meadow would be perfect for grazing animals and gives an open outlook to the whole property.
