Detailed description

A cosy entrance hall with a spacious bathroom to one side, leads into the large sitting room. To the right, a newly fitted kitchen leads to a utility room, which gives access to the large, double height barn. To the left, the lounge connects with the dining room. Both rooms share a double woodburner and have aluminium bi-fold doors out to the terrace.

From the dining room, a staircase leads to a mezzanine office/sitting room with delightful views of the gardens. To the right, a corridor leads to four double bedrooms and a bathroom. To the left is an expansive master suite, with a large en-suite bathroom, a dressing room, wooden beams and floorboards, French windows, a Juliet balcony, and sumptuous garden and river views.

Descending the stairs from the bedroom to the ground floor, you'll find another sitting room/office/snug room, featuring exposed beams and large mill stones, which were once used to grind flour. The room connects to a large unconverted space with glimpses of the original water mill wheel.

On the lower ground floor are the mill workings, with doors opening to both the front and rear gardens. An additional room is used as an office/guest bedroom, and there's a separate boiler room with storage.

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 all the habitable space, ensuring both insulation and charm.

At the rear of the property, a travertine terrace leads to a 7x3m swimming pool built only 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 open barn with quality paving, providing a shady covered area, perfect for entertaining.

To the side of the house 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. A wooden bridge over the river connects the back and side gardens.
