This magnificent 18th-century mill near the riverside town of Tardets-Sorholus is a beautiful family home and has a holiday cottage, a small apartment, a turbine room with the original mill workings and land of 2.6 acres (1 hectare), much of which borders a nearby river (there is no flood risk to the house).
Much of the furniture will be included in the sale!
The main house of 250m² includes a self-contained one-bedroom apartment of 47m² on the ground floor and an unconverted second floor of 80m², along with an adjoining holiday cottage/gîte of 55m².
The approach to the mill is along a private track. The track stops at the property where there is ample room for parking. The ground floor of the mill comprises a small, self-contained apartment of 47m², a machine room and a wine cellar. The small apartment is all on one level and has an open-plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen with a wood-burning stove, a bedroom, a shower room and a WC.
The machine room of 44m² leads out to a balcony, which overlooks the mill race. The mill's turbines and pulleys are fully operational, but it is not possible to use the machines to generate electricity.
Stairs from the ground floor lead up to the mill's first floor.
The first floor comprises an open-plan sitting room/dining room with a wood-burning stove, an adjacent kitchen, two bedrooms, a dressing room/laundry room.
The second floor of the mill (80m²) is currently unconverted. Subject to permission, this floor would be perfect for creating extra living space
Adjoining the mill is a self-contained guest cottage/gîte, which is rented out to holidaymakers.
Steps lead up to the first floor of the cottage, which is has an open-plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen area. At the far end of the room is a balcony.
Behind the main room is a bedroom, a shower room and a WC. There is a second mezzanine bedroom above the main room.
The mill race is a fantastic water feature! The race passes underneath the mill - and the water level of the race can be altered by sluices in order to turn the turbine. Because the canal was dug in 1762, before the French Revolution of 1789, the mill benefits in perpetuity from a "droit d'eau" (the right to exploit the passage of water).
The nearby river is accessible from the land. There is a small beach where you can sunbathe and the water is deep enough for you to swim and canoe.
Please note that the land of 10,504m² includes a field of 7,000m², which is currently rented out by a farmer ("en fermage") until July 2023.
