Full Description

A beautifully renovated 15th century mill house, dating back to at least 1407, within its own very secluded grounds of 14 acres including woodland and private river frontage. A simply stunning, privileged and unique location in the most peaceful of settings with no close neighbours although just 1.5kms from the supermarket on the edge of the market town of Champagne Mouton.

The old stone property has been completely restored, under architectural supervision, since 2003 by local artisans applying traditional methods and preserving the authenticity and character of this wonderful mill house. Modern comforts have been added such as the oil-fired underfloor heating on the ground floor with traditional radiators upstairs, double glazed (security) windows and doors, efficient thermal insulation and even an alarm system.

Outside is a raised terrace (from the sitting room) offering splendid views across the lawns to the river and the field beyond (ideal for grazing a horse). The terrace could offer a perfect emplacement for a swimming pool and was indeed where the current owner had considered doing so already. The mature gardens are well stocked with many interesting botanic specimens lovingly collected, planted and maintained. Being such a keen gardener, the current owner has erected a 40m2 'Geo-Dome' greenhouse which will stay for the new owner to benefit from. The river frontage extends to where two rivers meet (and beyond) and has a cascade and a small sluice gate and swimming is possible, in fact 'skinny-dipping' is an option with nobody to overlook you!!

If further accommodation is required there is an attached open barn of 40m2, currently used for parking 2 cars in the shade and a further stone barn of 78m2 which also houses the oil central heating system. In addition, planning permission has been granted in 2017 to construct a garage.

Location, location, location is key to this property and we have never come across such a stunning spot where you really have the feeling of living in nature with such quality comfort and style.

The department of Charente is located in the centre-west of France and is part of the Poitou-Charentes region along with Deux Sevres, Charente Maritime and the Vienne department.

Its name as is often the case comes from the river Charente which snakes through the department. Two local dialects are spoken in the area, Saintongeais in the west and Occitan to the east.

Charente is a thriving department for several reasons, Cognac production is one of the most interesting and profitable industries, the export level of approx. 95% is a success, the consumption in France being only 5% (some say they keep the best 5% in France!).

The department has many typical towns, Angouleme in the south east for example hosts an international festival that attracts hundreds of visitors and is not to be missed.

The region is popular with hikers, bikers and nature lovers who like to discover the woodlands, lakes and streams that are part of this amazing landscape.
