Le Moulin des Ances is a beautiful stone house in the style of a Maison de Maitre Charentaise. It is just 30 minutes from LA ROCHELLE on the west coast of France.
It is set in landscaped gardens of 5500 m2 with an abundance of trees and shrubs and next to extensive woodlands and rivers. The mill-stream runs by and there is a small lake.
The heated swimming pool (11m x 5,5m) faces the neighbouring woods and orchards (not part of the property).
Le Moulin des Ances provides a perfect centre for visiting the region. It is within easy reach of the many tourist and commercial centres.
The picturesque port of La Rochelle, the beach resort of Chatelaillon and Le Marais Poitevin (Green Venice) are half an hour away. Inland you can drive to Saintes and Cognac in an hour and to the Futuroscope at Poitiers in less than 90 minutes.
The TGV to Paris (3 hours) leaves from Surgères railway station less than 10 minutes from the house.
The central house has an adjoining barn on one side and an adjoining former mill building on the other side.
The main house was entirely renovated by the current owners with works completed in 2005.
The 2 living rooms are large and bright with high ceilings, exposed beams and stone fireplaces. The kitchen/dining room with a mezzanine above also has exposed beams and opens to the garden and pool.
The utility room is equipped for white goods.
A toilet and shower are near to the entrance for those returning from the swimming pool.
On the first floor there are three beautiful bedrooms each with a large fitted cupboard. One of the bedrooms is en suite with its large bathroom. A second large bathroom serves the other two bedrooms.
The old mill building remains to be renovated with potential for creating a separate 2 bedroom gite or as additional living space to the current house.
The garage (large enough for 4 cars) is a former barn and could also be developed to create further living space or a huge games room.
In total 190m2 of renovated living space + garage (74m2) + the former mill house remaining to renovate (140m2). So there is the potential to create over 400 m2 of living space.
