17th-century watermill - with lovely river, more than two hectares of land and attached gîte, Deux-Sèvres, Nouvelle Aquitaine
114228SSA79 - This 17th century (believed to originate from 1656) watermill is approached by driving up a 100 metre tree-lined drive - the towering Italian poplar trees providing a stunning entrance. The house itself is situated in an idyllic position surrounded by mature trees with a millstream, the main river and open grounds to the front and sides.
The outside terrace overlooks the millstream and the private island. All together there are over 400m of river/millstream banks. The grounds run to 2.66 hectares (6.5 acres) and include a poplar plantation of over 200 trees to the rear.
The house itself is split into two parts - a pleasant two-bedroomed gîte ready to move in immediately, and the main house which needs complete renovation but could be transformed into an amazing five bedroomed property.
There are endless options for this property. It could be a large family house with guest accommodation or it could be run on a commercial basis as a bed and breakfast.
