Water mill for sale on 3.4 ha with gite, Haute Vienne, Limousin

Limousin, Haute-Vienne

Sold ID: 131453

There has been a mill on this site since the 1600s. Various additions and alterations have been carried out ever since and the house now consists of a traditional stone built property on four levels with outbuildings.
The property has its own beautiful river frontage and a cottage which could provide a potential income as a Gite.

A tastefully converted Mill, with your very own river frontage, mill pond and stream.

This house rises from the surrounding countryside almost like a castle and has to be seen to be appreciated. There are currently six bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms (and a third one waiting to be finished) a very big kitchen/diner and a good size living room spread over three floors.

There is also a two bedroom cottage in the grounds which could potentially be run as a gite.

As you approach this property you begin to see just how peaceful and idyllic the French way of life can be. Despite only being 2Km (1.2 miles) from the nearest village and 8Km (5miles) from the nearest town with all the facilities you could want, this house is set in almost 10acres of its own land with fantastic countryside all around as far as the eye can see.
You initially turn off a small country lane. This leads you down a tree lined driveway to the house and cottage.
The house sits close to the river, and the mill stream is diverted through your grounds into the mill pond which is at the front of the house and provides a stunning feature.

When you enter the house you are straight into a big kitchen/dining room (54m2)with an impressive wood burner. There is also a separate lounge with a further wood burner (20m2) and a downstairs cloakroom/wc and utility room.
A spiral staircase gives access to the first floor where you will find three bedrooms (all 13m2), and a family bathroom (12m2).
On the second floor there are four further rooms almost exactly the same as the first floor although the bathroom has not been installed so they could be arranged however you want.
Underneath the property is a cellar which is the size of the entire footprint of the house and used to house the ‘mill workings’.
Apart from the wood burners the rest of the house is heated by gas central heating and is double glazed throughout.

The cottage in the grounds has a good size kitchen (17m2) a shower room and separate WC and two bedrooms (16m2 and 12m2). This can be used as a completely self contained Gite if required.

Various other outbuildings are included in the property. As well as many other surrounding hamlets and villages, the Market town of Eymoutiers is only 13Km (8miles) down the road where amongst everything else you will find a cinema and a railway station which will take you into Limoges. Limoges is only 49km (30miles) away and from there you can get daily flights to the UK.
There is also the opportunity to purchase a large barn (200m2) and over 3000m2 of pasture land attached to the property
