Property Details - Equestrian
This beautifully renovated watermill offers extensive accommodation along with first class equestrian facilities, a tennis court and two lakes, all set on 18 hectares of land on the edge of a village.
A mill has stood on this site since Roman times and the current property dates from the early 18th century – it is the only known example in the Limousin of a double mill….two adjoining mill houses with separate mill wheels which would have accommodated two separate families of flour millers.
These two houses have been integrated and sympathetically renovated to create a large family home which is full of original character such as the old wooden beams, exposed stonework and two stone sinks. The main house offers five bedrooms, two large lounges and an impressive dining kitchen. There is also a magnificent library, a mezzanine floor and a cosy snug. In the basement is a self contained one bedroom guest apartment.
The house has a series of air source heat exchangers providing either warm or cool air, plus there is oil fired central heating and four wood burners.
There is a terrace on each aspect of the house and a large heated swimming pool and double garage. Also in the basement is a wine cellar, workshop and sauna.
A detached guest cottage could be operated as a gîte to provide income and consists of an open plan living area with a kitchen and three bedrooms.
Within the grounds, through which runs a delightful trout river, are a tennis court, an equestrian schooling ring and a newly built stable block with heated water bowls, able to accommodate up to four horses. There are 6 hectares of fenced paddocks with horse shelters and extensive woodland providing firewood. The two well maintained lakes are full of fish for the keen angler.
The charming village offers a bar, post office and small shop whilst it is only 5 minutes drive to the nearest supermarket. Limoges airport can be reached in just 40 minutes.
