In our opinion, this property could equally be used as prestige property, or watermill

With over 100 metres of riverbank alongside the house and garden, this beautiful property is in a wonderful location and has been completely restored and converted into a fabulous attractive and large home. Situated in a quiet riverside hamlet yet only a couple of minutes from the historic town of Saint-Maixent-l'Ecole, this property is a rare find

The house has been renovated using high quality materials, fixtures and fittings and has incorporated flood prevention measures and full damp-proofing and insulation hence the B Energy Rating which is very unusual for a property of this age and location

  • Master suite comprising:
    • Bedroom 1 - 28m2 which has a fireplace and exposed beams
    • Dressing room - 14m2 accessed via a connecting corridor to bedroom 1 with a bathroom between the two so this could equally serve as a further bedroom or nursery
    • Bathroom - 11m2 equipped with a free-standing bath, large shower, twin washbasins and WC

Outside to one side of the house is a walled and fenced garden which has gated access to the off-road hard-standing parking area sufficient for several cars. The garden is mainly grass but with a large paved terrace, a small wooded area, a paved path to a wooden deck alongside the river and a small jetty. There is a stone storeroom of 13m2 beside the house

Attached to the other side of the house is a barn of 40m2 with an earthen floor and accessed from both the riverside terrace and the road and housing a traditional bread oven although it may need some work to get it back to working order

The hamlet has a small restaurant a short distance from the house and it easy cycling distance to St Maixent l'Ecole where you will find all the facilities of a large and attractive town which has been the home of the French Military Academy since Napoleonic times but also contains many historic buildings. Because of the Military Academy the town boasts a station on the TGV express train route linking Paris to La Rochelle via Poitiers making it possible to reach Paris in under 2 hours. There are also good road links towards the A10 motorway and only 30 minutes drive to Poitiers and an hour to La Rochelle so there are excellent transport links
