This very unusual property sits in a natural bowl surrounded by wooded slopes and with a long tarmac drive down to the buildings at the bottom of the hill. The old mill was driven by a stream that ran from the hillside and under what is now the main house into the millstream the property straddles so a very unusual property
Since the mill became redundant, the old houses and outbuildings have been renovated to create a main house which still has the mill machinery as a feature. The house and one gite sit either side of a very attractive covered terrace on two levels with a lovely water feature, exposed stonework and paving with the covered pool in front. The other gite is across the other side of the millstream
The main house has some double-glazed windows and oil-fired central heating.
It comprises on the ground floor:
Kitchen diner - 28m2 accessed directly from the shared terrace through French windows. The flooring is traditional style tomette tiles which are carried through to the lounge diner and ground floor bedroom and there are exposed beams and a ceiling open to the eaves with a skylight window so there is lots of natural light. There is space and connections for a largerange cooker and fitted units with a twin sink. There is also a log-burner and an arch through to the lounge diner and a door into:
Bedroom 1 - 14m2 but currently used as an office. The bedroom has French windows opening directly onto a private terrace for the main house.

In addition to several fenced paddocks there are areas of woodland on both slopes, a large pond fed by the millstream and a long frontage onto the stream. Because the property sits in a natural bowl with only one other property distantly visible across the far side of the property but well screened by trees, it is a very private and tranquil location
Despite the away from it all location, it is only a ten minute drive to the historic town of Saint-Maixwent l'Ecole famous for its military academy and walled town centre created by Napoleon to train his Army officers and sitting on the Sevres Niortaise river and with all commercial, cultural and leisure facilities
The town also has a mainline station serving the TGV express train service between Paris, Poitiers and La Rochelle and there is also access onto the A10 motorway to the south of the town so ideally situated for all transport links
This property has to be viewed to appreciate what it on offer in an idyllic and tranquil location
