Full Description

At the end of a rural lane, set on 3 ha of land sits this beautiful water mill home. Bought in the late 1990's by the current owner this property has undergone an extensive renovation (new roofs, electricity, oil central heating, drainage,...) and is nearly finished.
Due to personal circumstances this charming home is now on the market and would suit a DIYer to complete the remaining work, it just needs to be finished, all the hard work already done. (mainly on the 1st floor - bedrooms and bathrooms to be added).
Bordered by a class 1 river (ideal for fishing) and surrounded by pastures and farmland this "escape" would be a superb location for rental guests and with an enormous barn ripe for conversion the future "gite" awaits..... or you could keep the address secret and just enjoy it yourselves.
Ground floor : Entrance hall, leading to cloak room, lounge with fitted wood burner, kitchen, double bedroom, wc, shower room, laundry room, smaller double bedroom (or study). From the entrance hall you can also descend into the former mill workings room (ideal as a wine room with bar) or up to the split mezzanine above. This part needs finishing but would be a lovely salon with the mill workings as features.
The rest of the First floor has been prepared with excellent insulation, veluxes on the north side and character dormer windows on the south. Here you could create at least two large double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The former outside stone staircase is still there and leads done next to the boiler room.
Across the courtyard is the large barn (26m x 6m) again with roof in excellent condition. Here you'll discover a large vaulted workshop with stairs to the 1st floor with 2 large rooms. Downstairs separate to the workshop is a storeroom and stables with another 3 smaller stores at the end.
With just under 3 hectares of private land bordered by the river you have plenty of space for animals (horses perhaps). The mill reach exists but could do with a clean out. The wheel is no longer there but of course could be added if you wanted another project. The fertile river plains provide for excellent vegetables, etc. There's also a well on site.
Location wise, the property is just outside the market town of Chateau-la-Valliere with all amenities close by and Tours a comfortable 30 minute drive away. A great home in a super location and plenty of scope to expand by finishing off the project and/or converting the barn if needed.
