Mill house - riverside paradise in 6.5 ha - no near neighbours. Vienne

Poitou-Charentes, Vienne (86)

€636,000 ID: 163340

This is the most breathtaking location, with views over the river Vienne.
The house is in good condition with an inspiring garden and an artist's studio overlooking the water.

Perfect for horses, there are 8 loose boxes, a manège and plenty of land (over 16 acres), including islands in the river.

This former mill (there is a mill race but no wheel or workings) is in a setting that takes your breath away. The river runs over rocks in the river giving the seductive sound of the water, making it wonderfully relaxing and a magnet for wildlife. Kingfishers, herons and falcons are regular visitors.
No visible neighbours on either side of the river...
This is truly a paradise.

The village of Queaux is about a mile away. The nearest towns are L'Isle Jourdain and Lussac-les-Chateaux, only 10km and 15km away respectively. Poitiers airport is 47 km away and Limoges airport is 73km away.

The kitchen is large, with exposed beams and a tomette tiled floor. This leads to the utility room with extra storage space, a sink and the oil-fired boiler. The heating system has both a heat exchange converter and oil boiler working together depending on the temperature outside and the time of day.
The study has exposed beams and a glazed door overlooking the river - perfect for daydreamers!

In the hall, the main staircase leads to 2 of the bedrooms, and there is a shower room with a shower, lavatory and basin. The large sitting room also has exposed beams and wonderful views over the garden and over the river. There is an open stone fireplace for intimate cosy evenings.

Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, 2 from the main staircase, 2 from the back stairs, one of which has a large en-suite bathroom with a bath with shower over, basin and lavatory. All 4 bedrooms are spacious with high ceilings.

On the top floor there are 2 large attics spanning the whole of the house.

In the garden there is a covered eating area and a large artist's studio with huge windows overlooking the river... what an inspiration!
The garden has many areas; lawns beside the river, a formal vegetable garden and a large barn containing the boxes for the horses and space for many other uses.
The manège is near the barn and the grazing land is all within walking distance.
For the brave hearted, there are islands in the river belonging too, but without a boat, I haven't visited these.

So if you are an artist who needs a studio, a horse owner who needs boxes, manège and land or a family who want a Swallows and Amazons lifestyle for the children, all in a house of good taste and stunning location, this is it!
