Property Description

It’s not often we have a property on offer that ticks almost all the “wish-list” boxes especially at the moment, but this one is pretty close... Located in the Maine-et-Loire department of the Loire Valley, nestled between two very popular and buoyant market towns with excellent access to the autoroutes, cities and beyond. A former working flour watermill up until 1910 with origins recorded back to the 18th century.

The current owners have improved the original accommodation section of this property and have transformed it into a comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom gite split over 2 floors with views over the courtyard in front and towards that inviting pool area behind with private patio from the kitchen.

THE ACCOMMODATION


The former working part of the mill has been tastefully converted into “the owner’s accommodation” retaining the wonderful exposed oak beams, quarry tiled floors and stone walls. We have a formal entrance hall also used as a formal dinning room separating the gite part from the owners’ private part with access to a downstairs shower room, wc and separate “boiler/utility room”.

The main lounge is front facing with plenty of natural light showing off the large feature fireplace. The large “family” kitchen has a work island, range cooker, etc. incorporating the original placement for the mill stones. There’s plenty of room also for the breakfast/dining table and office/desk in the corner. From the kitchen we have a charming “bistro area” with glass window floor looking down onto the old mill reach ( little project to re-instate the flow of water), direct access to an outside raised deck area and  walk in larder/storage area. Next to the stairs in the kitchen is the back door leading directly to a large covered dining area looking over the reach, lawn and pool area beyond.

Upstairs the owners have created a master bedroom ensuite with walk-in closet, large bathroom with bath, shower, wash basin and wc. There is a large (55 sqm) second lounge on this floor which can easily be converted in to further bedrooms, bathrooms, games/tv room, art studio, etc. etc. Above the stairs lead to the attic space, ready for conversion into again further bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. Without a massive outlay the main house could comfortably house 5 or more double bedrooms and bathrooms.

OUTSIDE

The property is set on a plot of nearly 2 acres combining lawn, formal gardens, orchard, vegetable area, swimming pool and sun terrace, streams, mill pond, various bridges and terraces.
There is a good sized stone built barn (approx. 85 sqm footprint) which had permission granted to convert the 2nd floor into another 3 bedroom self-contained gite (strong probability of renewing this permission), with garage, workshops and a large stable for a horse below.
There is also a stone “goat shed”, ideal for storage and 3 large open hangars currently used as garaging, wood stores, etc.

THE AREA

Ideally located between two very popular market towns with an excellent choice of amenities in both. Autoroute access only 10 minutes away. A rural setting on a country road provides ease of access and allows the property to be easily found (ideal for a rental gites).


A great opportunity to finish and add your own touch to this impressive property with great rental potential whilst enjoying a fantastic place to live.
