This elegant property comes with river frontage, a water mill and 2 hectares of beautiful land and views of the surrounding countryside.
The current owners have done a fabulous job in restoring, renovating and restructuring this superb mill building to create a true light, airy and welcoming home whilst retaining the full advantages of the location. The river and mill reach views are wonderful, the small islands lush and usable and the south facing frontal aspect with its immaculate finish gives an instant impression for what awaits within.
The central rooms, and heart to this home, are open plan with a central double-sided wood burner as a feature dividing the living room and sitting area from the dining and kitchen. This sizeable double aspect room has large almost floor to ceiling windows on both sides allowing the maximum view of the outside features and views as well as allowing plenty of natural light into this impressive room.
The kitchen is well equipped with a large central island and patio doors leading directly to the rear terrace and barbecue area.
The whole property has underfloor heating (heat pump with extra oil boiler if needed) and traditional tiled floors throughout the ground floor.
The formal entrance hall with restored period staircase leads you to an office, WC and shower room and then onto 2 large storerooms (these could easily be turned into a downstairs bedroom, TV living room, etc. if required).
Upstairs the landing leads to a large family bathroom (bath, twin sinks and shower), dressing room and large bedroom (an ideal master suite) whilst on the other side are 3 double bedrooms all with great views over the reach and river beyond and another shower room and WC. The attic is in good order and could easily provide another two large double bedrooms and bathrooms if required.
Outside the plot is approximately 2 hectares and includes a sizeable outbuilding: two car garage, and two former stable rooms with an attic above, lawn area, mature trees, mill reach (with turbine) and river frontage.
This property could be available with another 2 bedroom house and extra land (up to 16 hectares) at an additional cost - to be discussed on site.
A short drive from the market town of Chateau du Loir with all the amenities you need as well as easy autoroute access to Le Mans, Tours, Paris and further afield. An ideal location for a family home with plenty of space for guests (paying or otherwise). The property is in very good condition and a viewing is highly recommended.
Water mills in the Loire Valley traditionally fall into one of two categories: there are the older ones built from loose stone often by the local monks which have been modified to become dwellings whilst retaining the "cosy cottage" feel, the other type are those more industrially orientated, built for purpose with large volumes but a very "factory feel" to them. This charming home however is neither of the above, it is an impressive property which has been lovingly restored.
