In the Cantal department of the Auvergne and approached via remote controlled electric gates, we have 62 acres/25 hectares of valley and wooded hillside, about a kilometre of Category 1 river bank (La Bertrande), plus three lakes and a weir. Previously a trout farm ( fishery ), there is now a barn with haystore, two large looseboxes, tack/feed room and insulated workshop with woodburner (19 metres x 7 metres in total). Near the mill house is a carport for three vehicles and, about 50 metres away, are two small houses. The fenced paddock has a field shelter.

The mill house has a double bedroom with en suite shower room, walk-in wardrobe and access to the terrace. There is a single/small double bedroom with en suite bathroom and river views.
The open plan kitchen/living room has a four-oven electric Aga, fitted oak cupboards, double sink, dishwasher and granite worktops, with river views.
The sitting/dining area has a woodburning stove, but there is also oil central heating throughout the house. Both French and UK TV and broadband are available.
Up four steps there is a large, tiled utility room, pantry and WC beside the external doors. There is an industrial stainless steel sink/double drainer and plumbing for a washing machine; also an office area and space for dogs, coats, boots etc..
This leads to a new, fully insulated garden room with two Australian (panoramic) blinds, stable door to the rear of the property and river views.
There is a full-lenght terrace and two good sized cellars.
The two separate, stone-built houses(potential gites) share a terrace and each has its own access and parking. One is in traditional style, with living/kitchen area and bathroom on the ground floor and very large family bedroom above. The second is recently renovated with two double bedrooms upstairs, plus new bathroom, kitchen, living and storage below.

The property is 3.5 kilometres from a small village with general store, doctor, post office, school and restaurants. It is about 30 minutes from Aurillac (with all amenities, station and airport for Paris connections). The alpine ski centre at Le Lioran is approximately 1 hour's drive. Nearest international airport is Brive (1.5 hours), but Rodez, Limoges and Toulouse are within reasonable reach.
All renovations have been architect designed and done within the last eight years to the highest standards by local artisans. They include new septic tank, wiring, central heating, automatic Velux windows and oak doors. The property would lend itself to a kennels/cattery, yoga retreat, gites, 'glamping', adventure centre, small hydroelectric scheme or -as we have found- a private and peaceful home surrounded by unspoiled nature.
