The only way to describe this property is Outstanding!
This ancient mill house, which dates back to the 14th century, has been elegantly converted to provide a comfortable home, along with three letting gites, which currently generate a good income with very little effort.
However, the property could just as easily make a superb family home, complete with guest accommodation in the charming Pigeonnier.
The house is surrounded by secluded parkland full of established trees, and includes a stunning mill pond, which you can gaze over, as the sun sets, from the veranda at the back of the house.
Situated within easy access of several international airports, along with two golf courses at Brive la Gaillarde, this is altogether an exceptional property and should be viewed to experience the beauty of the building and the tranquillity of the surroundings.
Ground floor: The main entrance to the house is through a shaded loggia which leads to the front door. A wide stone-flagged entrance hall greets you, which is lined with useful storage cupboards. To the right is the living room (49m2), with its monumental fireplace and powerful woodburner. This room also has double glazed doors onto the front terrace. To the left of the entrance hall, you enter the formal dining room (31m2), which has a very unusual feature, as part of the floor has been glazed over so that you can see the stream running underneath and the old mill stones. Beyond the dining room is the fully equipped kitchen (24m2), complete with breakfast bar and walk-in larder. There is also a door from the kitchen to the front terrace. Just beyond the kitchen is a downstairs shower and WC.
First floor: Stairs from the living room lead up to the first floor landing, with master bedroom (26m2) and adjoining shower room and separate WC. To the right of the landing, a door opens into a double guest bedroom.
Beyond this bedroom is a 2 bedroomed letting apartment (Gite 1), complete with living room and kitchen / diner (22m2). This apartment has its own independent access to the stunning veranda at the rear of the house with views over the mill pond. The way the first floor is configured, it is possible to lock the door between the guest bedroom and the main house landing, thereby creating a 3 bedroom letting apartment.
The second letting apartment (Gite 2) is accessed from the far side of the veranda and consists of an open plan living / kitchen area and 2 double bedrooms, along with shower room with WC.
Pigeonnier (Gite 3): The ground floor, tiled throughout, comprises a kitchen/breakfast bar with hob, sink and fridge unit, shower/WC and stairs to the first floor double bedroom.
Heating: Oil-fired central heating.
Insulation: The house is well insulated under the eaves and is fully double glazed.
Drainage: The property is connected to a septic tank which meets current norms.
Roof: Red tiles over several roof levels, which have been regularly maintained.
Garage: To the left of the main house, there is a large garage and workshop, which has also been equipped with a laundry for the use of guests.
Overall habitable area: 260 m2 approx.
Outside: The house is approached over a small bridge over the river Ménoire and is totally secluded behind high hedges and trees. There is parkland surrounding the house and the Pigeonnier, including lawned areas and many shrubs and perennial borders. You can fish in the river which runs through the garden. To the rear of the main house, there is an extensive mill pond, which is stocked with fish too. There is also the potential for generating the property’s own electricity supply.
