Converted water mill with ten en-suite bedrooms and its own stream, in the Creuse countryside.
This large family home has previously been run as a Bed & Breakfast by the owner and his wife has 10 en-suite rooms, a grand dining room and bar area.
It is set deep within the stunning Creuse countryside, yet is only a 15 minute drive to the historic town of Bourganeuf where there are shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, schools and a hospital.
It is also only a few kilometres off the main Limoges to Clermont Ferrand route. It would make a fantastic family home with a potential income if you wish and a great place to explore this part of France.
The property is set in the heart of the Limousin and is surrounded by woodland and streams with easy access to the major road system. It can be a wonderful family home or run as a B&B.
As you approach the property you are greeted with a gated entrance onto a gravel drive and turning circle with ample parking.
The garden is just below the main building which is laid to lawn and bounded by a stream and river.
There is a large patio area adjoining the property and accessed through the bar or dining room. There is a further timber patio overlooking the old mill gates which is accessed through the lounge.
The main reception area (44m2) is purposeful and welcoming; this leads down to the bar and lounge (33m2) and the large domed ceiling dining room (68m2). This room could easily double as a function room for conferences, weddings, parties or dances.
The dome has been decorated by a famous Aubusson painter/textile designer. Both these rooms lead onto the large patio/dining area. Also at this level is a large lounge. There is also a WC on this level.
The professional kitchen is in the lower basement where there is a range of industrial equipment, including a walk-in day fridge and pot wash area.
The oil-fired boiler is also housed here which heats the entire building.
The bedroom accommodation is split over three floors.
On the second floor there is a bedroom of (24m2) with an en-suite used by the current owners. Also here are a further 3 en-suite bedrooms all 27m2 each.
On the third floor there are 6 en-suite bedrooms all 26m2 each.
Then on the fourth floor there are four family-sized bedrooms all en-suite of 23m2 and will sleep 3 to 4 people, but this could be converted into a large two bed apartment for the owners.
The rest of the land is at the top of the building where the owners have built a car port, green house, hen house and vegetable plot.
The grounds are surrounded by deciduous and pine forest.
