Property Details - Character Property
Set in a tranquil location beside the soothing waters of a gently flowing river, sits this fully renovated, former water mill. Just a few minutes from a lively village with amenities, the property is accessed via a single track lane and set back 400 meters from the nearest road...this is a property for those seeking complete peace and quiet with no near neighbours.
Whilst the old mill workings are no longer present, the property benefits from having a partly converted, attached barn which could offer great workshop space or additional accommodation. Within recent years the property has had a completely new electrical installation, new plumbing and new guttering. A brand new fosse septique was installed in 2014.
The 38m2 lounge looks out over the river and is warmed by a wood burning stove set within a stone fire place. The floor is laid with Travertine tiles, imported from Italy, and large glazed doors open out onto a south facing patio to the front of the house. Exposed stone walls and wooden beams lend plenty of character to this lovely room.
To the rear is a kitchen diner, again with Travertine tiles to the floor but this time with underfloor heating, and with a first class fitted kitchen with built in dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven and microwave. There is also a utility room, with plumbing for a washing machine, and a ground floor w.c.
At the top of the stairs to the first floor is a mezzanine area that would be a perfect space for a study. There are three good sized double bedrooms and a stunning bathroom with underfloor heating.
Work has already started to convert one side of the attached barn with the installation of new floors, electrical fittings and plumbing. At this stage the work could be carried on towards a variety of objectives – perhaps to create an independent guest cottage or apartment, perhaps to knock through from the main house to add additional living space, or perhaps to establish a workshop or studio. The rest of the barn currently provides covered parking and useful storage space.
At one end of the barn is a south facing, open hangar which is currently used as covered entertaining and relaxation space – to the front of the hangar is a plunge pool with decked surround and a stone capped well.
The grounds extend to over half an acre and are composed primarily of grassed areas, some to the rear of the house but most to the front elevation alongside the stream.
The local village can be walked to within 15 minutes and has a boulangerie, post office, bar and restaurant. The market towns of Nontron and Piegut-Pluviers are both within easy reach. Limoges International Airport is only 45 minutes away with frequent flights to and from the UK.
