Beautiful water mill full of character and history in amazing surroundings with 2-hectare fishing lake and gîte.
Although private and secluded the property is just 1km and within walking distance of St Georges sur Cher. The village has everything you would require including restaurant, bar, shops, hairdressers, bank, post office, medical centre etc.
The bustling tourist destination of Montrichard is just 6km away - with supermarkets, shops, bars/restaurants, train station and riverside beach with swimming in the summer. The city of Tours with TGV and airport serviced by Ryanair is just 36km from the moulin.
This is a fantastic water mill in picturesque grounds with a private fishing lake. The main house has beautiful views from every window - whether it’s overlooking the lake and well-tended lawns to the rear, or the pond and streams surrounded by plants, flowers and mature shrubs to the front of the property. The property is secluded, no neighbours at all and a paradise of calm….yet a short walk to the local village of St Georges sur Cher with all its amenities.
The water mill itself no longer has the wheel, but below a trap door in the floor the river continues to flow underneath and out to the lake. The open rooms on every floor of the moulin are steeped in history with all the old machines and many tools used for milling still there – an exceedingly rare find these days.
A small part of the moulin has been used to enlarge the living space of the main house – there is still plenty of potential and a vast amount of space on each floor available to create further living space / gîtes / hotel etc. if desired.
On the ground floor the main house has a corridor leading to a living room with a large open fireplace and plenty of character. The “jardin d’hiver” or conservatory sits just off the living room and has wonderful views across the lawn to the lake. A door leading off the living room takes us to two bedrooms with private shower rooms/W.C. s recently created - well decorated with modern touches and original features providing character and comfort.
The kitchen is a good size yet rustic and cosy….and again has the great views to the rear of the house, and further along past the kitchen is the office – a large bright and airy room with windows front and back, a fireplace, exposed beams, and flagstone floor which continues through the ground floor of the house.
There are two floors upstairs – the first has one bedroom and bathroom, the second has two rooms awaiting some updating and a shower room. Each floor has those great views from every window.
The gîte is clean, bright and airy throughout. There is a kitchen, office/bedroom, large living room with fireplace and bathroom plus separate W.C. on the ground floor. Upstairs there are a further three bedrooms and a bathroom and separate W.C. The gîte has a terrace area and lovely gardens to the rear with views down to the lake…the fisherman’s paradise and prefect for rentals!
There are further parts of the property accessed from the exterior such as a large workshop and barn.
This is a unique character property set in magnificent grounds with wonderful views and much, much more…..
