Full Description

This large and historical family residence is in a great location with no noise other than the water and with about 6 acres of land (including 2 islands and two paddocks) you are guaranteed a peaceful and relaxing lifestyle.
The local market town is only 5 mins away with excellent access to the motorways a little further. All the local commerce and amenities are nearby and with the attraction of the river as well as Le Mans and Angers a short drive away this would make an ideal B&B and gite property.
There has been habitation on this site since 1100 and around 150 years ago it became stamped into local history with the development of what is reputed to be the first paper mill in the department of Sarthe. Since then the usage has changed a number of times including a wool factory and more latterly a private residence.
One of the mill wheels (there are placements for three) is still in place and working and could potentially be used to harvest hydro-electric power for the property. The accommodation is nicely presented and spacious with enormous scope for expansion if required. The former "Monks house" (built by the resident Monks in the 1100s) is being converted into a 2 bedroom gite by the current owners with just the finishing left to do (the owners are still actively working on this and it may well be finished by the time of sale) with its own private garden and sun terrace overlooking the river watched over only by the swans.
The numerous outbuildings of different sizes have their future usage limited only by your imagination (and a few local regulations....). The main house is split over two floors and provides 4 good sized double bedrooms, a study, large kitchen/diner/lounge, laundry and wash rooms, bathroom and vaulted future dining hall and of course wine cellar. Double glazing has been added by the current owners and there is oil fired heating in place in the house and a heat exchanger system for the new gite.
If this (and the price) has wetted your appetite, then contact us for a viewing and prepare to explore and discover this historic site.
