Good Monday morning! Today I’m dreamy over the peaceful, bucolic setting of this converted riverside watermill in Poitou-Charents, France. The property is charming and livable, and comes with two additional cottages in need of renovation. The old mill still contains the original mill equipment but it is missing the original water wheel. You could restore it and generate electricity with the flow of water from the river below! I can imagine shaping this into a perfect countryside escape!
The property is listed in three places:
From Le Figaro
From Prime Location:
Situated at the end of an impasse and set over 3 floors this 6 bedroom house has an old water mill attached, old cottages for renovation and about 1,200m² of land mostly with river frontage – i’m told the property does not flood. The main house consists of downstairs; entrance (7m²), leading to the large, bright and airy open plan lounge/kitchen/diner (40m²) with double aspect windows and open fire. There is also a downstairs shower room. On the 1st floor are 3 double bedrooms, all with wood floors (18m², 15m², 12m²) and a bathroom. Up to the 2nd floor there are 3 further bedrooms (all 10m²) and large landing area. The old mill (120m² over two floors) still has the original workings (although no mill stream wheel) and would make a great extension to the house or as separate accommodation. Subject to planning the old cottages could also be used for accommodation. The house is habitable, but needs some refreshment.
