An exceptional and beautifully restored historic watermill with five bedrooms, a separate two-bedroom guest house and swimming pool.
Set in three hectares of land, close to all amenities but in a peaceful rural setting, this is a fantastic opportunity to own a unique property full of character and charm.
This expertly converted watermill dates back to medieval times but has all the modern touches of a contemporary living space.
Set right on the river, this ancien moulin has been sympathetically reconfigured throughout to create an ideal family home.
It also has a separate guest cottage or gîte that is regularly rented out during the summer months.
There is a swimming pool, a large garage and several out door terraces. It is all set within three hectares of well-maintained land, which integrates perfectly with the river and provides plenty of scope to create a fabulous garden.
This is an ideal home for those who seek the benefits of rural life yet with all life’s essential amenities close by.
The Watermill has living area of 190 m².
The Guest House has a living area of 70 m².
The ground floor comprises: a reception area and living room with a wood burning stove; a well equipped kitchen of 25 m² and a beautiful long hallway that opens out onto a terrace ideal for alfresco eating. There is also a toilet and cellar on the ground floor.
The first floor has an open plan landing area and four good-sized bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, two bathrooms (with bath and shower) and a separate toilet. There is also a charming balcony looking out onto the water. All rooms have good views.
The third floor attic level has a fifth bedroom ideal for children and would also make a great storage area.
All parts of the house are double glazed throughout giving this property an excellent energy rating. These well-crafted wooden windows are a real feature of the property providing lots of light in all areas of the house.
The adjacent guest cottage is set on two levels.
The ground floor has a kitchen equipped with small corner dining room, a living room and toilet.
The second floor comprises a landing area with exposed wooden beams, two bedrooms and a shower room with large shower and two sinks. There is also reversible air conditioning.
The guest house has a proven, year on year, track record of providing regular rental income for holiday lettings.
There is a covered outbuilding adjoining the guest cottage, which would make an ideal carport, eating and/or games area.
The haricot-shaped, chlorinated swimming pool (10 m x 6 m) has a maximum depth of 1.4 metres and has been well maintained. Beside the pool there is an outside shower and changing facilities.
Nearby there is also custom built pétanque or boules playing area.
The property nestles in a peaceful valley of carefully landscaped grounds, woodland and river. The water really is a fantastic feature of this ancien moulin but it has been carefully managed and diverted in places so that it exists in perfect harmony with the house and garden and does not impede on the structural integrity of the buildings in any way.
In fact, all the outdoor space is in excellent order with distinct garden areas, which would provide the opportunity to create a variety of outdoor spaces. This would be especially interesting for keen gardeners. There is also an orchard and wonderful woodland walking on your doorstep.
