Old stone watermill dating from the 17th century with existing mill race and ancient water rights (written into the deeds) enabling the owner to generate electricity.
In effect the house sits on an island with the river tributaries on either side and the mill race in the middle at the side of the house
The property also benefits from pretty gardens across the road bordered by the river tributaries which then come together. A little footbridge takes you across the river which runs through the garden. Beyond where the tributaries join, is a paddock of around an acre (4000 m2)
Further along from the property there is a small garage/workshop with a little parcel of woodland to the rear (around 400 m2/one tenth of an acre)
The house itself comprises at garden level :- a large living room/dining room with fitted corner kitchen and a partially vaulted ceiling above the entrance. There is also a godin wood burning stove and an under stairs cupboard which encloses the hot water cylinder and at the side of the cupboard an inbuilt clay wine rack and at the other side of the stairs are built-in seating
The stairs lead to the 1st floor/road level where there is a small entrance and a large open room/landing with balcony looking down into the lounge.
Off from this room are a WC and a door which leads to a bedroom with its own shower room with pedestal basin
A staircase from the entrance hall leads to a room on the mezzanine with a glass gable end which looks down to the room on the landing.
This is a unique property which sits on the border of the Manche (Normandy), Mayenne (Pays de Loire) and Ille et Vilaine (Brittany) in a wonderful peaceful setting yet within 5 to minutes drive from the larger towns of St Hilaire du Harcouet and Louvigny du Desert and close to both Normandy and Brittany coasts
