Full Description

JUST REDUCED A magnificent converted mill and gite complex on the banks of a beautiful river with gardens and pool (Montguyon, 17)
This historic riverside property is comprised of the main mill-house, a large farm-house and a spacious miller’s cottage with an attached barn. The mill-house was converted in 2004, and the renovations continued for two years – renewing the septic tanks and adding a swimming pool.
There are 5 hectares of land, comprising 3 hectares of pasture and 2 hectares of pretty gardens. A tributary of the river runs through the property, creating wonderful views and ideal for water lovers. The income from the gites is around €18.5k per year. A small lake to the front is currently stocked with carp.
Mill-House (248m²) - Local plans suggest a mill was on the site since 1650 – milling flour for the local area. The local river was diverted, and runs underneath the home – driving the mechanism when it was operating. The sound of water can be heard running underneath the lounge, and the current owners installed a glass viewing window in the floor.
This ground floor is open plan, with a lounge area (11.4 x 6.5) and kitchen (4.7 x 3.6m) and has under-floor heating and a wood-burning stove. A separate dining room (8.6 x 3.6m) leads to an outside terrace, great for enjoying the sunshine.
The first floor has been designed as a stunning galleried area (57m²), with a large bedroom, office and mezzanine-bedroom that overlook the lounge area. Certainly quirky, this area has a very homely feel. There is also a separate bathroom, with a corner bath and shower. A sliding oak door leads to a guest ‘wing’, which has two further double bedrooms (2.6 x 5.6) and (5.6 x 3)and another shower-room. Oil-fired central heating system, and all the windows are double-glazed. The roof was replaced in 2004.
Farmhouse (272m²) – 5 bedrooms, 2 receptions rooms, 1 bathroom, 1 shower-room, two separate WCs. The entrance hall leads to a bright library to the left and a reception room (4.75 x 4.9m) to the right. This leads to a further spacious lounge area (7,8 x 9.1m), with a wood-burner and a solid-timber spiral staircase. There are French doors giving access to the front and rear.
The spiral staircase leads to an upper landing with access to three double-bedrooms. One bedroom has a gorgeous ‘Juliet’ balcony which overlooks the lake. Another staircase on the ground floor gives access to two further bedrooms – which is ideal for splitting the house in half for holiday guests or alternative living arrangements. The kitchen (4.3 x 3.3) is at the rear, with access to the garden and barbecue area. There is a separate utility room for washing machines etc. Gas central heating and electric radiators. This farmhouse attracts an income of £1345 per week in the summer months.
Miller’s Cottage (145m²) - The Miller’s cottage has two bedrooms, a fully fitted kitchen / dining room and a sitting room (6m x 5m). This property had a new roof in 2004, and there is spacious barn which could be converted into stables or used for storage. The kitchen (5.4 x 5.5) has a stone fireplace with a wood burning insert fire, and an original stone ‘shepherd’s stove’, which could be returned to functioning use. On the ground floor there is a large bedroom and a shower room with hand basin, separate W.C. and a utility room. The first floor bedroom has an en-suite shower room with WC and hand basin. The Cottage also has its own barbecue area on the terrace facing the front garden, with views of the lake. The cottage attracts an income of £575 per week during the summer.
The pool (12 x 6m) is a recent addition and has solar powered heating. It is securely fenced around its perimeter. An adjoining green-house is great for plants and is also used to house the pool-pump gear.
Bergerac airport is 90 km (1hour 10 minutes’ away) and Bordeaux airport is 70km (50 minutes) away. This property represents an excellent opportunity for buyers who are active and looking for a ready-made business and who also want a quirky riverside home.
