Full description:

This fabulous old walnut oil mill has been transformed into a magnificent dwelling to be used as one large house or, just as easily, as two. It has wonderful, spacious light-filled reception rooms and the converted barn has a massive hall. Beautiful gardens and an adjacent field too for the pony.

This spacious, converted, traditional Charentaise farmhouse and mill stands, facing South, in an established walled garden of 1511m² (over a third of an acre) with an adjoining field of 2367 m², giving a total land area of just under an acre.

The property has been fully modernised and is double glazed throughout but retains all of its charm with original beams and exposed stonework, with the restored millstone and presses still in place. Replacement of the roof allowed for full insulation of the property making for a light and airy house with a modern feel. All the works have been carried out by qualified local artisans.

There are 4 large bedrooms, two of them with en suite bathrooms, and two of them on the first floor of the original dwelling with a family bathroom. The salon and dining room have their original beams and there is also a well fitted family kitchen. A special feature is the huilerie (or oil press) where all the original equipment is still intact and in place. The entrance hall has exposed stonework and an Oeuil de Boeuf (Bull's Eye) which is a traditional, small window.

The salon and huilerie have individual, gravity fed oil-fired heating, the remainder of the property being wired for electric heating, supplemented by a wood-burning stove in the dining room.

The converted barn has a vast space (10m x 7m), suitable for parties and a study, an en suite bedroom and a separate cloakroom with WC and wash basin as well as the original cowshed manger. Off a passageway is a breakfast room with kitchenette.

Oil-fired central heating has been installed with radiators in the breakfast room, the en suite bedroom and mezzanine upstairs with underfloor heating in the barn.

The house is set in an established garden and is approached via its own 65 metre drive. It has a paved terrace, a garage with remote control door and various outbuildings.

It is situated in a rural hamlet in the sunflower belt of the Charente-Maritime department, and is an easy drive to shops, restaurants, schools and medical facilities. The nearest town of any size is St Jean d'Angély and the airports at both La Rochelle and Poitiers are within easy reach.

About La Résidence, Oxford

Bienvenue à La Résidence – the French property people.

Whatever your budget, wherever in France you want to buy, you’re now in touch with the experts. We’ve been selling houses in France for more than 25 years – in Normandy, Brittany, the Pas-de-Calais, the Vendée, Poitou-Charentes, the Limousin, Aquitaine, Burgundy, the Languedoc-Roussillon, the Midi-Pyrénées and Provence. We also offer a Paris apartment service.

Our UK-based team, with decades of professional estate agency experience between them, know the French property scene intimately. You’ll find their enthusiasm for France and the French way of life infectious. All of our colleagues in the field are entirely bilingual and chosen for their experience and outstanding levels of service. From the moment you first contact La Residence, you’ll find that we’re dedicated to ensuring that you find the right house, at the right price, in just the right spot – and with the minimum of fuss.
On our site, we showcase a wide range of French property – from barns to manor houses, from cottages to châteaux, from B & B’s to gîte complexes and hotels and from fishing lakes to country estates.
By the way, you’ll find that some agencies ask you to pay an up-front fee or make extra commission charges or to pay for the services which we provide as standard, such as help with setting up a bank account, advice on the best foreign exchange rates, transferring the utilities at the new house into your name and so on. When you place yourself in our hands you can be assured that there are no hidden extra charges. The price you pay is not one Euro more than you’d pay if you approached a French agency directly.

Stephen Hilton heads up the Oxford-based firm. He was formerly a member of the British Diplomatic Service. Following a successful career which included a number of overseas postings and culminated in his appointment in the Foreign Office as First Secretary with responsibility for Anglo/French relations, Stephen joined the family property business as a Partner. It was from this base that La Résidence was founded in 1985. Since that time, the firm has gone from strength to strength and La Résidence is now widely regarded as one of the most respected French property companies in the UK whose opinions are regularly canvassed by property correspondents commenting on the French market.

Having himself owned a house in France for many years, he has much personal experience to add to his professional expertise. Together with his French colleagues, he has successfully arranged and overseen many hundreds of transactions, and it is now rare for him to come across any situation not previously encountered.

We are based in Oxford and welcome personal visitors. If you’d like to discuss your plans face-to-face, please call us for an appointment. We’d be delighted to help to make your dreams come true.
