FREE GUIDE INCLUDEDTop 10 Tips for Buying Property
If you dream of a place to recharge your batteries, private fishing on your door step, a home run with its own water supply and 5.6 hectares of private grounds yet within 5 kms of local amenities and only 1 hour from the local airports, give this property a serious look! This house has been renovated with style and a dedication to maintaining quality throughout. An artisan hand-made oak staircase is a beautiful feature that takes you to the two upper floors. Unique stained glass windows set with cut agates are to be found decorating the two landings. A forage has recently been installed, providing the property with free, natural water - excellent for filling the proposed swimming pool! The attached mill building gives the opportunity to develop further accommodation, it is already reroofed and is a secure building and the land with the river running through makes this property a must-see! Main Residency Stylish, modern kitchen with trapdoor down to a large storage cellar; Spacious lounge with original features, wood burner, tiled floor and stairs going up to a first floor bedroom with a fireplace, an office with pretty window-seat fireplace and a modern bathroom. The second floor has a further two bedrooms and another bathroom. Attached to the main residency is a large building with the possibility to knock a door-way through or perhaps to develop something with income potential. There is current planning permission to build an 8 x 4m swimming pool and a 20m Pool house. Property is surrounded by natural beauty, a private stretch of river and rich with wildlife; there is also an old windmill to be restored or just to admire. This old watermill offers a unique, countryside home set in the tranquillity of 5.6 hectares of established, idyllic parkland including a river flowing through, giving the opportunity for private fishing and plenty of space to keep horses, grow your own vegetables, start a business, or to just enjoy. The main residency consists of two buildings. The first building has been renovated to a high standard to include three bedrooms, a study, two bathrooms, a lounge, a modern kitchen and a cellar. The attached watermill adds another 150m and is currently being used as a garage and for storage. It has a good roof but needs developing to provide further accommodation or business potential. It is possible to internally join the two buildings, making one large property or to make a second independent unit. Within the grounds can be found an old windmill offering further development potential. Pulling off the main road there is a drive down through huge horse-chestnut trees to the old watermill, a traditional stone property with shuttered windows in the heart of the Poitou-Charente. The watermill has a south-facing terrace with steps leading up to a well-kept lawn area. There is current planning permission for an 8 x 4m swimming pool and a 20m pool house (to include changing rooms, etc.). In the garden is a restored pizza oven. Entering the property you notice the high standard to which the property has been newly renovated. The spacious (32.35m) lounge has been tiled and original features, such as the stone walls, fireplace, sink and oiel de bouef window have been tastefully exposed. There is a wood burner for winter months. Two stone pillars support a central ceiling beam; a wooden staircase twists upstairs. There is a fantastic, (5.1 x 2.1m) modern kitchen, with chestnut floor with a trapdoor leading down to a storage cellar; fitted floor and wall cabinets including a stainless steel insert sink, gas range and fan oven with extractor fan. The kitchen has a large window with a window seat and a stable door leading out onto the eating terrace.
