A renovated character house with attached watermill, including all the workings situated in a delightful rural hamlet in the north of the Deux Sevres only 5 minutes from the town of Moncoutant, where there are shops and facilities including Pescalis angling centre. 20 minutes south of the town of Bressuire, where there are all shops and a new 18 hole golf course. 90 minutes from the Vendee coast and several airports including Nantes, Poitiers and La Rochelle. 4-5 hours' drive from the ferry ports of Saint-Malo, Cherbourg, Caen and Le Havre.
The house was renovated in 2000 and has 4 bedrooms and lots of beams and exposed stone. Attached is a 3 storey mill, which still has the wheel and all the machinery in 3 floors. Ideal to be converted or restored.
The property is at the end of a small hamlet with mill stream and grounds of about 8000m2 which leads down to the Sevre-Nantais river. An excellent property for mill enthusiasts and well worth viewing.

Stairs to First Floor Landing: landing open over the lounge, 4 bedrooms, bathroom. Mill house: 500m2 wheel room, ground floor room, first and second floors with one large space and further rooms with the machinery and grain hoppers.
To the rear of the house there are further outbuilding and mezzanine, which has been part renovated.
Adjacent to the house is a large 2 storey outbuilding which could be used to enlarge the house.
Courtyard leading to garden and paddock leading down to the main river.
The department of Deux Sevres is in the Poitou-Charentes region, in the western part of France below the Pays de la Loire region. In recent times this department has become an ever popular destination for French property buyers. Prices are still reasonable and one cannot help being seduced by the diverse cultural heritage, delicious local cuisine, seafood and of course the lovely rolling countryside.
Deux Sevres has a very mild climate, similar to that of Aquitaine and the Poitou-Charentes region, it is the second sunniest region of France where people adopt a relaxed, simple way of life ideal for holidays and leisure activities.
The transport links are very good too, with five international airports, the TGV (high speed train) in Niort can reach Paris in 2 hours, to Bordeaux in 1hrs 30mins and Toulouse in 4hrs 30mins. Good motorway links to Bordeaux, Nantes, Tours and Paris make it a great location.
