Fabulous working mill with mill races and river frontage, beautifully renovated house and a contract ready to sign to sell electricity to the EDF

The property is in a good general condition with some outbuildings to still renovate. The wheel is an original 1832 wheel and the mechanisms have been totally refurbished and all function perfectly, producing energy.

There is also a summer house in stone with an attic area which was once an old cottage, this has a pretty terrasse overlooking the river

The French owners have lovingly restored the main house retaining as many features as possible, original tiled floors, parquet floors, cupboards, and more. The kitchen has a fireplace as does the lounge and the dining room overlooks the riverside and has views of the island which is also part of the property. An original staircase lies to the end of the hall and to its side is the ground floor cloakroom.

On the first floor are three large bedrooms and an elegant bathroom. There is a second floor which could be renovated but is presently just an attic space, accessed via a trap and ladder as the staircase was taken out several years ago.

The property has all mains utilities, gas central heating, Double glazing and is insulated to a high standard. The wheel house is within a separate builing, wich has three floors, all having been updated and ready for many uses, or transformation to habitable areas. The wheel dates back to 1832 all the mechanics attached to it have been lovingly restored, allowing production of electricity. There is a contract with an electrical company to be able to sell the electric generated, which the owner confirms can provide 700-850 per month

There are several other buildings and many have been renovated but some still have works to be done. There is a garage big enough for 4 to 5 vehicles, a 3 storey mill store and smaller builings.

A bridge spans the mill race and leads to an island area with old stables, vegetable area and gardens , with stunning views.

The property is in a very prestige area, with chateaux and luxury merchants houses nearby.
