Full Description

Entering into the former beating heart of this once industrious mill, it is a pleasure to see much of the mill mechanism restored, and on show in this spacious entrance hall, currently also used as a dining room (44.5m2). To the far side there is an anteroom (13m2 - with wood-burnign stove) used by the present owners as cosy sitting area.

To the left of the entrance hall is the sitting room (36m2) with its handsome stone fireplace with wood burning stove, exposed beamed ceiling and wide arch through to the farmhouse-style kitchen (37m2). The kitchen has a range of fitted units, including an island unit, space for free standing appliances, a wood-burner, plenty of space for a large dining table and glazed doors to the rear garden.

A door from the kitchen leads to an inner hallway, which leads back round to former mill room. Off this inner hallway is access to the laundry room and pantry (each 10.5m2) and the pantry in turn leads to a boiler room.

First floor
Stairs rise from the mill room to the first floor landing from which all the remaining accommodation is accessed, as well as a sizeable, and as yet undeveloped area.

The master bedroom (22m2) looks out to the front of the property and across to the swimming pool. It has an exposed beam ceiling, solid wood flooring and a stone fireplace. An ensuite dressing room and bathroom (15m2) complete the master suite.

A second en-suite bedroom (20.5m2) is located to the rear of the house, and is well appointed with its private shower room with WC.

Three further bedrooms (18m2, 14.5m2 and 12m2) share the family bathroom with separate WC.

On this floor there is also an unconverted attic area of 45 sq m with vaulted roofline, which offers potential for further habitable accommodation.

Second and third Floors

The original mill part of the building is in fact 4 storeys high, and across both the 2nd and 3rd floors there is a total of 140m2 available to be developed (subject to relevant permission and surveys).

Outbuildings and Gardens

Directly across the lane from the house is an outbuilding of 105m2, which offers garaging, a workshop and pump house for the pool. Behind here is a well-equipped summer kitchen and covered terrace facing on to the swimming pool (10m x 5m).

The total area of land being sold with the house is over 7000m2. This land is made up of several different gardens; closer to the house are the more formal areas whilst further out it becomes less so, with lawn, trees and two well stocked fruit orchards. Much of the land is crisscrossed by the former millstream, which tends to have water flowing only in winter and spring.

The property is located in small hamlet of just two dwellings, with the local village and it's handful of shops, being and easy 1.5km away. The larger town of Surgeres is around 10km, whilst the nearest beaches are about 45 minutes away an La Rochelle Airport is at about 50km
