*** NEW REDUCED PRICE ***
The price has recently been reduced from €445,000 to €360,000 in order to achieve a quick sale.
Due to a change in family circumstances, the current owners are reluctantly having to relinquish their rural retreat. The price quoted is for a direct deal with the owners.
This lovingly restored 300 year old walnut mill and gite is set in the rolling hills of the Dordogne, 5km from the market town of Riberac. The property boasts many attractive features with the lounge and kitchen being particularly impressive. It has undergone extensive refurbishment in the last few years by the current owners and provides the perfect opportunity for a holiday home with rental income or a hassle free way to start a new life in France, particularly as the sale price includes all furniture and contents.
Nestled in 4 acres mainly laid to lawn, surrounded by streams with private terraces, large swimming pool, games room and several wells, the property is truly delightful.
The property comprises Moulin Bertrand and an adjoining self contained gite called The Bothy. Each is very private, and has it's own private terrace, Bbq area and garden views. There is a large outdoor pool with shaded barn area for alfresco dining and the remainder of the barn provides a storage area, games room (complete with table tennis equipment), covered parking, oil tank/boiler and washing rooms. This area provides scope for further conversion to extend the gite to two bedrooms, (subject to permissions).
Moulin Bertrand (Main house)
Retaining all the character and history of its past as a walnut mill, Moulin Bertrand provides all of the atmosphere of rural France, with antique furniture and wooden floors and the original (non-working) equipment incorporated into the spacious kitchen, yet has all the benefits of up to date facilities. The dual aspect lounge spans the depth of the house making it bright and sunny in the Summer and warm and welcoming in the Winter, with a feature fireplace in local stone complete with very effective log burner. Opposite and next door to the kitchen is the dining room, set up for more formal dining, although the kitchen has plenty of seating for more relaxed meals.
Unusually for France there are 4 spacious bedrooms, each with an associated bathroom - three en-suite and one family bathroom, all located on the first floor with fabulous views of the garden and beyond.
The Bothy (Gite)
Completely refurbished and extended in the last few years to provide a charming self contained gite with wooden floors/stone walls and vintage fittings and furniture. There is a spacious living room /kitchen area leading to a large private terrace overlooking fields and trees and upstairs there is a large studio style area containing one double/twin bed and separate pull out bed. Attractive shower room/toilet.
Apart from the extensive garden areas, there is a large enclosed swimming pool shaded on one side by a barn providing space for rest and dining al fresco at a long hand made oak table. The remainder of the barn has car parking space as well as games room, tool room etc.
The mill race runs from the front of the property up to a nearby bridge, beyond which there is a 100 metre ( approx. )Stretch of river bank with mature poplar trees which is also part of the property.
