This complex, which used to be an ancient mill complex selling electricity to the grid until 1964, really has to be (must be) seen to appreciate its current (650m2 habitable space) and future potential for commercial gite and B and B exploitation plus the potential of course to re-fit electricity generation to be energy sufficient - utilising the canal diversion from the river which still exists
Positioned on the ancient track that used to run between Limoges and Bellac in the Haute Vienne (before the motor car was ever thought about) and just adjacent to an ancient bridge on the track recently restored under the auspices of Patrimonie de France, the property provides a full range of quality gite/B and B letting opportunities plus quality owner's accommodation and comes with almost 10 hectares (24 acres) of attached land of which about 6.5 hectares is grassland, about 3 hectares is woodland and the rest pleasing garden areas around the various buildings
1.0 Owner's accommodation - 200m2 of habitable space on two levels with a fantastic m2 open plan "sėjour" with double aspect windows and views over the river from both sides plus an equally fantastic m2 bedroom directly above also with the same views plus and a balcony running the length of one side of the "sėjour" to really appreciate the river views. Beneath the owner's accommodation is another equally sized room presently used as a gymnasium
2.0 Gite accommodation - 186m2 of quality habitable space on three floors (4 bedrooms, open plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen, bathroom, shower rooms etc) plus 100m2 of adjacent expansion potential on three levels already provided with water, electricity and drainage plus new roof
3.0 Maison de Maitre - used for B&B letting - 4 bedrooms (all air conditioned) including a two bed mini-suite and a two bedroom family unit with a shared bathroom, breakfast room etc. Again great potential for further expansion of B&B or conversion to gites including a 140m2 windowed attic space that also passes over "La Grande Salle" and beyond - see below
4.0 La Grande Salle (70m2) - adjacent to and linked internally to the "Maison de Maitre" and used for weddings, birthday parties etc
5.0 Garage (72m2 ) - adjacent and attached to "La Grande Salle" (on the opposite side to the "Maison de Maitre") offering the potential to double the size of the "La Grande Salle" for even bigger functions plus windowed attic space referred to above
6.0 Old mill building (65m2) - to renovate with new roof plus insulated. "Cave" below. Plus an attached section with the same levels that could be linked to create an independent gite.
7.0 Other buildings include a chapel (to renovate), a bread oven, two former pig pens, a hangar plus....
Water supply to all buildings can be mains supply or "quality"well water. Centralised control is provided. Electricity supplies (to all buildings) are below ground - no unsightly overhead cabling systems etc.
All the principal rooms in the "Maison de Maitre" are air conditioned. Oil fired central heating (plus “pompe a chaleur”) to all buildings is from a central supply point adjacent to the gymnasium referred to above. 620m2 of new roofs already fitted leaving only 250m2 to do.
There are three separate wastewater management systems for the various accommodation sections and all three fully conform to current regulations.
All facilities including all schooling requirements are available at Bellac (9 km – 9 minutes) where you can also access the Limoges to Poitiers rail service for TGV connections to Paris, London etc. Limoges airport is only 26 kilometres away (26 minutes).
