This impressive 19th century former mill complex is set in a stunning location, with the river weaving its way along the boundary

The large mill building has been developed to create a spacious and comfortable 4 bedroomed family home, with potential to further extend within the existing structure. The top floor of the building could provide additional self-contained accommodation with its own roof terrace if required, subject to the necessary planning consents

The two gîtes are located a short walk from the main house and provide income potential. The former miller’s house is over 200 years old and offers 3 bedroomed guest facilities over two floors and there is a further 2 bedroomed guest apartment in the adjacent building

There are numerous outbuildings offering further possibilities, including: a large attached garage, former stables, workshops, a stone wood store, and animal shelters

The land extends to over 8 hectares (almost 20 acres) with lawned areas, a vegetable garden, orchard, woodland, riverside zones, and two large fields
