Item specifics

Country: France Number of Bedrooms: 6 Bedrooms
Location: Charente Maritime Construction Year: 1700's
Sort By: For Sale Number of Bathrooms: 2
Property Type: Watermill with lake Plot Area (m²): 8 acres
Building Feature: Detached Private / Estate agent: Private
Watermill with lake and 8 acres of land, most of which is fenced.
The house is fully restored to a high standard.  The main part of the house has 2 large living rooms, kitchen, downstairs toilet, 2 storerooms and a huge workshop/garage.
Upstairs there is 4 double bedrooms, an office, family bathroom with separate toilet.  There is a salt softener fitted which protects the whole house so no calcare build up in the heating system or limescale in the bathroom fittings.  The kitchen has been fitted with solid oak doors and a solid granite worktop.  The electrical items in the kitchen are to stay (if wanted)
There is also a fully contained 2 bedroom gite attached with 2 double bedrooms, kitchen and living room, shower room with separate toilet, and its own entrance and balcony.  This can be used as part of the house or separately as it has an adjoining door to the main house.  The gite is to be left fully furnished if wanted.  There is room to make a second gite within the roofline if wanted.  There is also an 8 unit kennels/cattery which can be continued to use as such or could be converted to another cottage for relatives or a gite.
The lake is approx 1.5 acres in size and has a field next to it which would easily acomadate 2 mobile homes if you wanted to do fishing holidays.
The house has wood fired cental heating so the whole house can be kept comfortably warm for approx 600-800 euros a year.  This price also includes all the hot water during the winter as the hot water system is plumbed into the heating system.  There is a solar panel for hot water in the spring/summer/autumn so electricity bills are very low.  If the waterwheel is put back in there would be the opportunity to produce electricity with a mid shot wheel.  This would provide enough electricity to heat the house during the winter.  The heating is already set up to be able to use either wood or electricity.
There is a large covered balcony with built in BBQ and a fixed large tale which can comfortably accomadate 12-16 people.  This balcony is south facing so the cover is a bonus!
The house is at the end of a lane so no passing traffic appart from the odd tractor.  We have lived at the house for 10 years and are moving now the children have left home.  We bought this house as it is perfect for horses.  We had 2 horses and 10 sheep.  There are miles of good hacking routes on the doorstep, which do not involve going on the road at all…..this is one of the reasons for choosing this house.  The largest field has a fresh water stream running through it all year so no wtaering the horses.
The lake is stocked with carp, brown trout and lots of other fish.
The house is situated in the south of the Charente Maritime, 15 mins from the thermal town of Jonzac.  It is only 40 mins from the center of Bordeaux……Bordeaux airport is only 50 mins away and La rochelle airport is 80 mins away.  40 mins to the lovely beaches at Mechers and only 10 mins from the port of Vitrezay.  5 and a half hours from the ports of Le Harvre and Caan.
