Watermill for sale Haute Vienne, Limousin, France


This is a wonderful opportunity to own a former cloth-making water-mill just 5 minutes drive from Bellac, with its railway station; theatre, supermarkets; schools; Banks etc. but set in the valley of the river Gartempe. 7 bedrooms in all this is a very tastefully renovated old building and apart from some paintwork is ready to inhabit. Modern ensuite bedrooms rooms grace the first floor of the main building which has retained much of it's charm and original features. On the third floor are more bedrooms which share a family bathroom.
The attached one bedroom gite on the 1st floor has two studio apartments below.
The opportunities for income are well established.
The owners have completed all the major works needed but there is still some decoration needed.

Former water mills are highly sought after and this one has been carefully and sensitively renovated and converted.
It's total of 7 bedrooms present the perfect Chambres D'Hotes and Gite complex opportunity in a delightful riverside setting.

The current owners have done the vast majority of the hard work leaving, effectively, merely decoration to finish everything. Living, as they do, in the UK, they are selling for personal reasons.

This property is located near to the town of Bellac with its theatre, supermarkets, library and a full range of shops and Banks. It sits alongside the river Gartempe in a small and charming hamlet.

From the private courtyard to one side, the main house is accessed through a glazed door with enormous feature windows and one enters into the hallway (approx 3.5m x 5.7m) with exposed stonework and beams and with a mezzanine above. The floor area is fully tiled. To the left and down one step, on the right is a WC with washbasin and further along the fitted kitchen (approx 3.7m x 4.7m) with tiled floor and french windows to the rear with views of the river flowing nearby.
Again further along is the spacious sitting room (approx 7.7m x 5.6m) with two french windows opening out onto the terrace which overlooks the river.
Back in the entrance hall and up the open stairs is the mezzanine (approx 3.4m x 3.5m). From one side the landing leads to two large bedrooms both with ensuite bathrooms and each with a balcony overlooking the river.
Up a further flight of stairs are two more double bedrooms with a large family bathroom bathroom.
All bathrooms and bedrooms have been modernised.
In the other direction from the mezzanine is the potential Gite accommodation currently used by the owners as their living space. This whole area has yet to be decorated. There is a sitting room (approx 6.6m x 3.1m) with windows over the courtyard to one side and over the side garden to the other. On the same floor there is a kitchen (approx 2.5m x 2.8m) and a double bedroom (approx 4.9m x 3.5m) with window overlooking the courtyard. A separate WC completes the accommodation upstairs.
Down one flight of stairs to the separate door which accesses the courtyard independent of the main house to the right and the left there are two studio apartments both with ensuite bathrooms and kitchen areas. (both approx 6.3m x 4m). These two studios would benefit from some TLC merely in the form of redecoration.
Outside in the courtyard and attached to one side is the barn (approx 7m x 7m) with a hangar above.

Outside the main buildings and to one side is an extensive garden laid principally to grass and bushes and which runs alongside the river.

With a little extra work in the form of redecorating this property offers the perfect opportunity for a Bed and Breakfast business with an attached Gite complex.

If "location, location, location" is the driver, then this property has it in spades. It nestles in the river valley and the river winds round to one side of this former mill and provides a delightful backdrop.
