A Watermill in Charente-Maritime, Poitou-Charentes

Two Houses, 6 Bedrooms, Barns, Land and Stream in Côtes-d’Armor, Bretagne

Property with reduced price in Charente-Maritime

REDUCED ! Approached by a very quiet country lane, lies a small hamlet of just four houses. This property is two of them. The 4/5 bedroomed longère dates back over 400 years and is actually built from local granite which was rescued from the neighbouring chapel that was demolished back in the 1700’s. It has beautiful stone dressed arched doorways and windows which are a real feature of this building. Around 20 metres away, is the second cottage, also in stone which has two bedrooms.
The longère has been fully refurbished to a high standard and just needs a small amount of D.I.Y. finishing, the odd window sill, door trims, tiled edges here and there, but in the main it is ready to go. This longère also benefits; broadband, ‘A’ grade double glazed windows and on the south side fitted solar pipes for water heating. Due to the use of the solar and wood burning stove to for the radiators, the electricity bill for this property in Jan/Feb 2014 was just 25 euros!!!
The second stone cottage is very much liveable, but would benefit from some updating to the electrics and plumbing as well as general up dating. On the ground floor there is a central entrance hall with doors off to a sitting room and a kitchen with space for a table and an inset log burner.
Within the garden area of 2.5 acres, three outbuildings including an open barn, two dry workshop / garages make it very flexible with endless possibilities.
Away from the main garden (around 80m down the country lane, is a field with a very pretty stream as well as your own private forest of around 2.7ha in total. Price reduced to €189,900
