Interior
Upon entering the house through the front door, you are welcomed into a small hallway. To the right, a large shower room awaits, providing convenience and functionality. From the hallway, you step into the spacious sitting room/kitchen. With a window overlooking the front garden and bifold doors leading to the back terrace, this area is bathed in natural light.

The newly fitted kitchen with ample space for a table and chairs make this room the heart of the home. Ceramic tiles elegantly cover the floors in the kitchen and sitting room. A utility room and a WC are conveniently accessible from the kitchen, with a door leading to the expansive barn which has room for several cars and/or motor bikes.

The sitting room has a huge double-sided wood burner that connects to another sitting room/dining room. With a window overlooking the front garden and bifold doors leading to the terrace, this room offers a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living spaces.

From this room, a staircase leads to a mezzanine office/sitting room featuring painted wooden floorboards. The windows in this room provide delightful views of the front and back gardens, allowing for a tranquil work or relaxation space.

A corridor branching from this room leads to four bedrooms and a bathroom. To the left, an expansive fifth bedroom awaits, boasting open beams, wooden floorboards, French windows opening to a Juliet balcony, and stunning views of the gardens, as well as the river below. This bedroom also features a walk-in wardrobe and a large bathroom.

Descending the stairs from this bedroom to the lower floor, you'll find another sitting room/office, featuring French windows opening to a Juliet balcony with captivating views of the river and a window overlooking the back garden. The white laminate flooring, wooden cladded walls, and exposed beams lend a stylish touch. Notably, the room includes the large mill stones that were once used to grind flour when the mill was in operation.

From this room, a door leads to a large unconverted room that offers endless possibilities, such as a small self-contained apartment or a games room. From here, you can catch a glimpse of the original water mill wheel, adding a distinctive feature to the space if desired.

A small landing gives access to stairs leading to the mill workings on the ground floor, with doors opening to the garden at both the front and back of the property. Adjacent to the mill workings, there is a room currently used as an office/guest bedroom, and a separate semi-basement room housing the boiler, oil tank, and providing additional storage space.

The property benefits from oil central heating in most areas, with the large bedroom featuring its own electric heating system. Double glazed wooden windows adorn the entire property (apart from the unrenovated room), ensuring both insulation and charm.

Exterior
The property boasts exotic gardens on three sides, creating a serene oasis. The crystal clear River Boutonne runs through the garden and beneath the house, enhancing the tranquil ambiance.

To the rear of the house there is a travertine terrace from the sitting room leading to a 7x3m swimming pool which was only built two years' ago. At the front of the house there is a picturesque mill pond, where water cascades into the mill race that runs under the property. Next to the pond there is a large hangar with quality paving, providing a shady covered area perfect for entertaining guests.

To the side of the property there is a charming garden, where the river flows on both sides, offering scenic views towards the lake at Chateau Javarzay. Here, a vine-covered pergola sets the stage for delightful al fresco dining experiences. A wooden bridge over the river connects the back and side gardens.
