Our ref- AI4233 Former mill complex, with main house, 2 gîtes, outbuildings, and 8.3 hectares of land

This impressive 19th century former mill complex is set in a stunning location, with the river weaving its way along the boundary
The large mill building has been developed to create a spacious and comfortable 4 bedroomed family home, with potential to further extend within the existing structure. The top floor of the building could provide additional self-contained accommodation with its own roof terrace if required, subject to the necessary planning consents
The two gîtes are located a short walk from the main house and provide income potential. The former miller's house is over 200 years old and offers 3 bedroomed guest facilities over two floors and there is a further 2 bedroomed guest apartment in the adjacent building
There are numerous outbuildings offering further possibilities, including: a large attached garage, former stables, workshops, a stone wood store, and animal shelters

The property is located a short drive from the town of Oradour-sur-Vayres, with all the amenities for day to day life, including schools, doctors, shops and leisure facilities. The town also has a tourist office. The larger towns of Rochechouart (15km) and Limoges (38km), with its international airport are quickly accessible by car
