Waterside mill house with gite, land and millhouse to convert
Renovated in 2011 this 3 bedroom waterside home has an attached one bedroom gite, plenty of land, the mill house still to convert and is located only 3km from the popular market town of Confolens.
The house (which was originally two cottages), comprises of three bedrooms and two well-appointed bathrooms, together with a downstairs cloakroom.
The large dual aspect kitchen (19 sq m), which was only installed in late 2011, has a ceramic hob and built-in oven with an extensive range of shaker-style kitchen units and granite worktops.
The dining room (22 sq m also dual aspect), has a built in cupboard and leads through to the living room (21 sq m), which has a wood burning stove. The entire ground floor has under-floor heating provided by an environmentally-friendly heat pump.
There are two staircases, the first of which leads up from the dining room to guest accommodation; two bedrooms (14 and 11 sq m), a bathroom (5 sq m) and airing cupboard.
The second staircase leads upstairs from the hallway outside the living room, to the Master Suite (18.5 sq m) comprising study/dressing area with a large fitted wardrobe. Off this room there is a luxurious tiled bathroom (9.5 sq m) with a very large walk-in shower, two basins with drawer units and a wall mounted WC. Also leading from the study area is the large master bedroom with exposed roof trusses.
All upstairs rooms have heating units served by the heat pump.
There is a conservatory (23.5 sq m), which bridges the house and former barn; now converted into a gite. The conservatory has large double-glazed windows looking out into the garden and is perfect for frost tender or indoor plants and provides a perfect spot for a cup of coffee on those cooler days of the year.
The gite has a large living room (32 sq m) with a wood burner. There is also a large kitchen/diner (24 sq m) with ceramic hob and built-in units and French windows opening on to the sunny frontage. Upstairs there is a mezzanine with storage, a double bedroom (23 sq m) with dual aspect, shower, double basin unit and separate WC. The gite has its own independent hot water supply making it suitable for independent living or for letting.
Outside, there is a water mill situated on the edge of the river, which could be converted into separate accommodation; presently having two floors. There is a covered wood store and a workshop adjoining.
The River Goire runs through the garden and over a barrage, making a waterfall. The gardens are extensive with flowerbeds and lawns, plus vegetable plot and fruit trees.
The entire property has been renovated recently. The house has been totally rewired and the heat pump installed to ensure background warmth throughout the colder months - and a fire only necessary on really cold evenings.
