Set in over six hectares with a river running through it, this watermill, and it's renovated house and collection of outbuildings stands out from the crowd. A very private and tranquil location, which is a joy for lovers of nature, birdwatching and fishing. Adored and lived in by the current owners, and bought for its' amazing surroundings, charm and equestrian facilities.
The gated private driveway brings you into the grounds via a bridge over the river and sweeps into the gravelled courtyard. The south facing property overlooks a wooden deck with bridge, the river and woodlands beyond. The grounds have been lovingly cultivated over the years and create splashes of colour across the seasons
Entering the property via the half glazed door into the inviting tiled entrance hall, there are glazed French doors off to a formal dining room on the right, and onto the family kitchen /diner. The light and spacious kitchen/diner is tiled and fitted with a good range of cupboards, space for a table and chairs and an attractive functioning Franco-Belge wood burner. The kitchen window seat takes in the views of the river, mill and paddock.
From the rear of the hallway there are doors off to a w.c., a separate shower room and the rather grand vaulted living room with gallery above. This room has a feature stone wall and fireplace with wood burner, beams and huge glazed doors to make the most of the outlook. On the end wall of this room there is access through to the work shop / out building which could be opened up to add to the accommodation.
A substantial spiral staircase takes you up to the carpeted mezzanine, currently used as an office work station. To one end there are doors into a dressing area with many built in cupboards, a smart en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle and glossy black floor tiles adding to the luxurious feel of this master suite. The huge master bedroom (38m2), with further fitted cupboards has a lovely lofty feel with the beams and large windows offering magnificent views.
From the other end of the mezzanine are a further two good sized double bedrooms and another bathroom. This house has a substantial living area, is renovated to a high specification with quality fittings throughout and further benefits L.P.G. / Gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Outside are two large workshops - providing development potential to gite / B&B accommodation or 'granny annexe' - with new roof and loft space which share a wall with house. There is a garage and parking for several cars, and of course the original three storey mill house (dating back to circa 1800's) - reconstructed in 1951 - in nice condition, and well set to be restored, with the right permissions, to it's former glory. There are large fenced paddocks for horses and a purpose built stable block with cement floor and loft space.
Just a 2km drive from the local village for basics, or for all amenities, the historic town of Guemene sur Scorff is 5 kms away or a further 20 minute drive will take you to the larger historic town of Pontivy. The south coast beaches are a short 40 minute drive and the UK bound airports at Dinard, Rennes and Nantes are around the hour and half two hours drive away. The ferry ports of St Malo and Roscoff are around two hours away by car.
