Full Description

A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO UPGRADE YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE: 2 separate houses - A 4 BEDROOM CONVERTED WATERMILL and a SYMPATHETICALLY RESTORED BARN currently with 3 bedrooms, both set in NEARLY 6 ACRES (2 hectares) of rolling hills and woodland.

If you're searching for a change of life, maybe to become self-sufficient and closer to nature, or perhaps to run small retreats, then this beautiful place could be the answer. LAKE FED STREAMS criss-cross the lower land, providing easy, reliable water for growing vegetables, with the gentle sounds of water babbling in the background. IT IS PROTECTED FROM THE WIND, being partly in a valley BUT STILL HAS WONDERFUL VIEWS.

The mill was built circa 1815 and comprises of a kitchen leading on to a veranda with gorgeous views. There is a downstairs bathroom, a living room and a downstairs bedroom. Upstairs are 3 other bedrooms and a bathroom with a bath.

The barn, which is currently run as a successful gite, has a downstairs bedroom, a bathroom, dining area, kitchen and living room. On the 1st floor is the master bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom. On the same level there is also a table tennis room and workshop. At present, the 2nd floor comprises a cinema room and a games room. There is plenty of scope to adapt this property to meet other options, as you might wish, with a small amount of work.

The local area is not heavily populated and the clear air allows some fabulous star gazing. There is much bio produce available locally, and a village with a community keen to integrate different cultures. Many locals enjoy playing music of all sorts, and the community reflects this with open mic nights and various other events. This property is very special, providing a chance to start a new life or, perhaps, as an investment.


The property is very close to a feeder route for the Route de Santiago de Compostela and there are also beautiful lakes nearby. The property is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty with many Biologique farms/producers nearby. Located in the Creuse, 5 minutes drive from the village of Chatelus-Le-Marcheix, 20 minutes from the historic town of Bourganeuf and one hour from Limoges airport.
