Lots of potential here with three buildings comprising the original mill (renovated into a gite), the later larger mill (to renovate) and a large renovated house with two suites of rooms ready to let out if desired and potential for two appartments on the upper floor.

With a fantastic riverside setting this group of buildings offers many possibilities and consists of a large house plus two millhouses, one dating back to 1785.

The main house has been completely renovated to a very good standard and is ready to operate as a quality B&B if required, with two independent suites.

The upper floor is ready to complete and could provide two further rentable apartments if required – the electric & water supplies are already in place and the area is fully insulated etc.

The roof was renewed in 2003, as were the electric and plumbing systems. All windows and external doors have been replaced with UPVC double glazed units with electric roller shutters to all windows. A new 8000ltr fosse septique system was installed in 2013.

The main house is very light and airy and comprises, on the ground floor:

Entrance hall, 1.5m wide
Lounge, 37m2, dual aspect
Kitchen, 14.5m2, refitted in 2014 with integral dishwasher and space & plumbing for washing machine. 
Dining room or bedroom, 18m2
WC
Door through to separate hallway, leading to the two guest suites with either a family bathroom, or ensuite facilities. The guest bedrooms are all of good sizes, 17.5m2, 16m2, 15m2 & 14.5m2. 

The upper floor is accessed by two staircases, one from each of the ground floor hallways, each leading to a large space which could be completed to provide a self-contained apartment.

One of these areas is currently used for storage and has no room partitions etc. The work in the other is more advanced and has a large open plan living area plus a separate bathroom and dressing room have been created. 

There is a full basement beneath the house, divided into several rooms, one of which is a utility room with plumbing and electrics for washing machines etc and plenty of indoor drying space. There is also a large heating oil tank which could serve a new boiler if required, and there are central heating pipes to some rooms. A hot water cylinders (300ltr) was installed in 2014 with space made beside for a second if required.

Outside there is a gravelled driveway leading to the millhouses and the riverside, flanked by a tall stone wall in which there are two doorways, each opening onto small caves in the rock behind. Above the wall is an orchard with many fruit trees.

The original millhouse, built c1785, sits alongside the river and has been tastefully renovated into a gite with double glazed windows and electric heating, comprising of:

Living room / kitchen, 32m2, with exposed stone walls & ceiling beams.
Shower room with separate toilet.
1st floor bedroom / sitting room, 42m2, with door to outside space at the rear, next to the millrace.
Ensuite bathroom with bath with shower over & washbasin
WC

The larger millhouse, built c1900 & working until 1984, has 3 floor levels, each approx 130m2 plus a two-storey workshop attached, each floor approx 35m2. This mill was turbine driven and still retains the rights to use the water – some of the original machinery is also still in place. This millhouse is unrenovated but the roof was redone in 2003.

The river runs past both millhouses, with the meadow opposite, part of the approximately 2 hectares belonging to the property. There is also a garden with shrubs & approximately 2 hectares of woodland.

The property is located just outside the pleasant Medieval village of Le Chalard (1km), a Medieval village with an ancient Abbey and Monks' Cemetery and a museum related to the gold mining industry which was located here in years gone by, & only 5km from Ladignac Le Long, where there is a baker, butcher, pharmacy, co-operative store, hairdresser & bar-tabac. 

St Yrieix La Perche, only 7km away, is a thriving town with all amenities including supermarkets, shops, bars, restaurants, banks, post office, a modern hospital with A&E facilities, cinema, theatre, art galleries, museum and a medieval quarter including 12th century church. 

Limoges airport is only 50km away and the station at St Yrieix has good rail links to Limoges and from there to the mainlines, eg to Paris
