Happy Thursday! This old tanning house circa 1780 in Vienne, France is such a fascinating building! It’s huge and cavernous inside, with four bedrooms and TWELVE acres of land. I love that I can see evidence that an artist lived here, with their enormous canvases all over the home. Something about the gloomy nature of the building and its past as a tanning house makes it so interesting to me. It seems so full of character and potential. Do you have a vision for this space? What can you imagine doing with this amazing building?
The listing on Moulin is very descriptive!:
Super 4 bed Mill nestled just outside a village in the Vienne in need of renovation offers plenty of living space. 40km from Poitiers airport and 70km from Limoges airport.
This old tanner’s mill built in 1780 is nestled amongst the woods just outside the small but busy town of Lussac les Châteaux.
It has bags of character with its beautiful exposed beams and good sized rooms. With just over 12 acres of garden, lands, woods, pond and stream and within walking distance of all the local amenities including the train station, this mill is a real treasure.
As you go into this old mill, look past the clutter and you cannot help be feel the character of the building.
The hallway opens out into the large living area with its beams, two fireplaces, the original tiled floor and the original workings of the mill. On this floor there is also the 4th bedroom with what could be turned into an en-suite shower room, the boiler room, two further rooms that could be laundry and workshop areas as well as a separate loo.
Up the beautiful oak staircase to the right and past the loo, is the kitchen with a small balcony, the dining room with double doors out to the large sunny south-west facing terrace. To the left the large sunny living room with its fireplace, exposed stone wall and stunning beams take you through to the 3 good sized bedrooms, all of which have en-suite bathrooms and 2 with built-in cupboards.
Another trip up the stairs and you reach the 135m² of attic space which has plenty of head room and windows and could easily be turned into another fabulous room or rooms!
Outside, there is a large barn across the country lane, plenty of land for garden, vegetable plot and you have your own woods and pond (although the pond needs work)
This property has huge potential and is perfectly situated to offer you peace and tranquillity but within walking distance of the local shops and the train station.
