Property SummaryAt the end of a long drive, and over a private bridge, this 4-bedroom mill-owner's house, set in a beautiful location, has a mill with working water wheel, plenty of outbuildings and land, including several islands in the Charente.
The font door opens to the entrance hall, which in turn leads on to the kitchen. The newly-fitted kitchen (15m2) has a tiled floor a high ceiling with exposed beams, a variety of fitted units and a lovely view out over a stream.
To the far end of the kitchen a doorway leads to the sitting room (19m2) with tiled floor and a pretty limestone fireplace which houses a large wood-burning stove (which is also designed to run the radiators).
To the right of the kitchen a doorway opens to a very large loft-style reception room (about 47m2) with glazed doors to the courtyard and to one of the riverside garden spaces. To one corner of this room is a shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
A wooden staircase rises to the first floor landing which provides access to four generous double bedrooms (20m2, 19m2, 17m2 and 16m2) all with wooden floors and lovely views and one with a fireplace.
Attached to the house are a number of mill buildings - with much of the mill workings still in place. These buildings are substantial, with about 600m2 of space set over 5 floors. Given the location they could make wonderful artist studios. The water wheel is still in place and is operational.
The property sits on a total of about 11440m2 and includes the courtyard (with plenty of parking), and number of garden areas, some islands and an orchard. The views across the river are stunning and it is a very privileged location - ideal for relaxing, swimming, boating, fishing, painting...
The village of Marcillac-Lanville, with its shop and restaurant, is just a short drive / cycle and the small town of Aigre is just a little further. The larger town of Mansle with it's supermarket, restaurants etc is just a 10 minute drive.
