Enchanting and versatile character property set in over 12 acres with more than 500m of river frontage along a Class 1 trout river, with a spacious water mill as well as separate gite.
This beautifully converted (with scope for more) period mill comes with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, complete with water wheel and some workings, as well as a separate 2 bedroom guest lodge. It is currently run as a successful B&B and gite accommodation business on site and the goodwill and bookings could be handed over to the new owner along with the furnishing needed (subject to negotiations).
The large family home is comfortably spread over three floors and provides 2 floors with four guest bedrooms and en-suite facilities, a large dining hall with original mill workings, spacious kitchen and breakfast area with original bread over, private double aspect living room with feature fireplace, large games room and owner's master suite.
The attached wheel room houses the original wheel and today the gas boiler.
A workshop has been prepared for future conversion into a separate 1 bedroom apartment with river views.
The former stable and barn with high vaulted roof has had planning permission granted to convert into another guest lodge and the end of the property (former workers cottage) is today a delightful 2 bedroom guest lodge with living room and kitchen/diner.
Outside there is a separate tuffeau stone barn, a double garage, orchard, garden, lawn areas, 3 rough paddocks (currently used for hay), vegetable patch, and on the other side of the lane, there is further land and river frontage. Various terraces have been constructed to provide plenty of seating areas for the owners and guests to sit and enjoy the relaxing sound of the water and views over the river.
An easy to find location (ideal for B&B) between two villages with a good selection of amenities and a short drive to the popular tourist destination of La Chartre sur Loir or Le Grand Luce.
