Happy Wednesday! Dreamy! This French former watermill dates back to the 14th century and the stream still runs beneath it! It has been renovated into a really generous, open, light, airy home with eight bedrooms plus a guesthouse with an additional two bedrooms! Wonderful potential as a bed and breakfast or a beautiful family home.
This property is so dreamy. I love the medieval history of the structure combined with the vast, open spaces that industrial architecture provides. What a fun combination to have the ancient and modern combined! Plus, the stream is just lovely – imagine the soothing sound that it makes.
