Sitting above the river in a beautiful hamlet this former stone watermill constructed before the mid 1700s, is in need of renovation but would make a stunning large home when finished. The millstream actually runs through the middle of the property in a concrete channel and the original mill-wheel is still in situ though in need of restoration. The original grindstone emplacement and gearing are also still in position and together with the stream running through would make a fantastic feature for an open plan living area.
The first floor has a fairly new concrete block and beam floor and is double height so has potential to create several rooms plus a mezzanine area to make the most of the stunning views. The roof on the mill itself has been replaced in recent years so appears in good condition and there are window and door openings to both the front and back on the ground and first floors. The main structure of the former miller's house is on the side of the main building. That property is open at one end but is double height and still has the original Charentaise fireplace.
The property comprises:
Ground floor - 99m2 with the millstream running through the middle
1st floor - 99m2 currently accessible by ladder only but with potential to create a high vaulted ceiling or up two more floors
Old house - 20m2 but with height for two floors
Outside and to one side of the building is a walled courtyard of around 130m2 with an arched entrance and concrete floor overlooking the river. From the back of the mill there is a path that goes across a little bridge and leads to an enclosed garden of around half an acre alongside the river.
There are currently no mains water or electicity supply to the property but both are available nearby and the property does need a drainage system but there is space to put that in the courtyard. The road outside the property leads only to two other houses and then to the fields and woods nearby
The two market towns of Aigre and Mansle are around five minutes drive in each direction and two minutes away is a village with a bar and boulangerie. The Charentaise capital Angouleme with its medieval hilltop fortifications is around 30 minutes where you will find all the facilities of a cosmopolitan French city
It is very rare for a property like this in such a lovely location to come onto the market and with some investment and planning, it offers a fantastic opportunity to create a unique amazing home
