Charming, tastefully renovated 18th century watermill

Aquitaine, Dordogne

Sold ID: 109059

Our charming and tastefully restored mill stands in 2.3 hectares of land, with two streams and a source-fed lake which is ideal for fishing (common and mirror carp, roach and crayfish) and swimming (the lake drops from a few centimetres in depth to over 2 metres at its deepest point) and is approx. one acre is size. With a southerly aspect the mill is exposed to the sun throughout the year but with many mature trees it also affords shady spots to sit and relax during the hottest part of the day.

The mill has been completely renovated with quality materials and fittings - Grohe, THG, hand-finished terracotta floor tiles, high efficiency insulation, cast iron radiators – whilst all plumbing, electrical, fosse septic works and the complete replacement of all the roofing timbers and roof tiles have been undertaken by registered French artisans within the last three years.

ground floor

kitchen (35m²) with freestanding furniture, a Rayburn stove and the original milling woodwork and is exposed to the apex.

Situated almost equidistant from Bordeaux, Perigueux, and Bergerac the mill could not be better placed for those who want to enjoy a relaxed rural life whilst having three vibrant cities within easy reach.
