Pays de la Loire, Maine-et-Loire (49)

€397,500 ID: 161549

Situated down a small lane near a village between Gennes and Doue la Fontaine, and near to Saumur, perfectly placed to enjoy the benefits of these lovely market towns and the Loire.
Angers is approximately 40 minutes drive with TGV links to Paris, Bordeaux and London. There are scheduled flights to Tours (1 Hour distant) from London Stansted and Dublin. Nantes Atlantique is a 2 hour drive. The ferry port at Caen is less than 3 hours by car.

This lovely former watermill is in an idyllic setting and has been sympathetically restored by its current owner, but with scope for further improvements.

The accommodation is arranged as follows:
Entering from the front courtyard is a large sitting room with patio doors to the rear courtyard and pool area. There is a large fireplace with wood burning stove. To the right is a vaulted area with a shower room with WC, which could be easily redecorated to provide another guest accommodation.
Also from the sitting room there is a stone stair rising to a corridor giving access to 2 large bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and WC. To the left of the sitting room is the generous and well fitted main kitchen.

A staircase rises to the upper level of the property where there is a separate large sitting room with access to the gardens at the rear.
A further fitted kitchen and a corridor with access to 2 bedrooms and a Bathroom with WC.

A stair descends back down to the cellars which again, could be converted to provide further accommodation.

There is also a stone barn which could provide garaging at ground level and could possible have the upper ground level converted (with proper permissions) for use as a workshop or potential guest accommodation.

The extensive grounds around the property are very private and include 2 lakes, one of which is well stocked.
There is also a large paddock area which is not landscaped.

This property has retained many of the character features but it could not be restored to a working watermill.
