Originally a walnut and corn mill, this charming 14th century stone building has been lovingly and completely restored and now offers a unique and stylish family home or the opportunity to continue the existing, very successful, gite business.
The current owner has restored the property with style and care, making the most of the many original features. Exposed stonework and original beams are visible throughout and the woodburner in the sitting room gives a cosy feel to the large but very comfortable family room. The dining room includes a feature reinforced glass floor panel giving a view of the mill race which can be illuminated for night time viewing. The large, original bread oven would make a very stylish barbeque or pizza oven should the next owner fancy a little project.
The flexible property currently offers very comfortable owner's accommodation and 3 individual rental units including a delightful pigeonnier which would also make a fabulous office or artist's studio. The rental units are much in demand and many guests return annually. Should the next owner wish to continue the business they could literally walk straight in and pick up the reins. Alternatively, the property could revert back to use as a large, comfortable and practical family home with no effort. The house could be the ideal option for a family looking for a home with a "granny annexe" or separate accommodation for older teenagers. The flexible accommodation lends itself equally to so many uses.
The 2 acres of easily maintained park land adjoin the grounds of the neighbouring, privately owned Chateau. The beautiful mill pond and river frontage can be easily enjoyed from one of the seating areas around the garden or from one of the covered terraces. Take the opportunity to enjoy a nice glass of something local and watch the resident herons or local otters as they enjoy the bounty of the well-stocked River Menoire. Fishing rights come with the property.
A secluded paradise, the property is not isolated; standing as it does on the borders of the Lot, Correze and Dordogne Departments in the heart of the Dordogne Valley. Some of France's best loved attractions and towns are within easy reach making this an excellent choice for anyone looking for either a unique family home or a proven business opportunity.
