Unique home and business opportunity with a stone millhouse, second stone house with attached barn, and carp fishing lake, all set in a tranquil hollow and woodland setting.
A mill house with some machinery still in place and a millrace. The waterwheel was replaced by a hydro generator in WWII.
The mill house has been renovated with a kitchen/diner on the lower level, a living area above that, and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor.
The second house has a large kitchen/diner on the ground floor, the living area and bathroom on the 1st floor, and two bedrooms on the 2nd floor.
There is a carp fishing lake which could operate as a business with one or both of the houses could be used for guest accomodation, and further accommodation could be created in the attached barn, subject to permissions.
The overall setting is idilic and quiet but only a short distance from a village with bar/restaurant.
This beautiful property, consisting of two houses and an acre of fishing lake, is set in the tranquil countryside of Pays de la Loire. The millhouse and cottage have been renovated throughout but retain many beautiful French features including the original stone walls and exposed beams.
This is an old mill house with some machinery still in place though the waterwheel was replaced by a hydro generator in WW2.
On the lower floor is a large kitchen diner with a wood floor and exposed beams. There is a modern light kitchen set against the original stonework. From here there are stairs up to the next floor which is a living area using up the full footprint of the house.
On the first floor is the living area which has picturesque French doors leading onto steps down to the garden, and big windows, making this a light airy room. The stairs continue up to a bathroom and three bedrooms. The bathroom is tiled and has a shower over the bath. The master bedroom is light and airy with a full-height window overlooking the millrace, and has plenty of room for a double bed and wardrobes. Bedrooms two and three are good sized rooms.
Cottage with attached barn
On the ground floor of the cottage is a delightful light kitchen diner with plenty of space to seat a large family for dinner. There is a charming country style kitchen surrounded by the original stonework and with an easy to clean, professionally laid, tiled floor. There is a large wood burner to keep everything cosy in the winter, a stable style door to the rear and wonderful exposed beams.
On the first floor is the living area which has polished wood floors, large windows both ends, a built-in wood burner and, again, it has the natural stone and wood beams. Also on the first floor is a delightful bathroom. This has a modern white suite and, with the walls being original stonework, it retains the French look. The floor is finished off with more polished wood.
On the second floor there are the large master bedroom and a further bedroom. Both have exposed feature walls and polished wooden floors; perfect for adding your own colour scheme with soft furnishings.
The cottage has a good-sized barn attached, which, subject to normal permissions, could also be used for accommodation.
The large carp fishing lake (approx 1 acre) already operates as a successful business along with accommodation which is not currently for sale.
However equivalent accommodation can be provided in one or both of the two houses, and could potentially be expanded with the conversion of the barn. However this all could just be enjoyed as a tranquil spot for a large family, or family with guests.
This truly is a place to relax and enjoy your life in France, away from any noise. However, if you do want to see other people, it is just a short distance from the village of Couesmes Vauce which has a very friendly bar / restaurant.
