Beautifully unspoilt, full of tasteful character and simple style with comfort. This stone built watermill is in a perfect location on the edge of a pretty hamlet within 10 minutes' drive of Ruffec, 30 minutes from Angouleme airport and only 1.5 hours from La Rochelle. Read more ...
Dreams were made of this ... This beautifully renovated ancient watermill with the gentle flow of the Argentor conjures up a serene and gentle lifestyle. Set at the end of a quiet lane with views onto the fields yet not isolated - all amenities are to hand in the nearby town of Verteuil-sur-Charente with its chateau and of course the market town of Ruffec.
The front garden and courtyard gives a large expanse of safe and private outdoor space fenced off from the river. The back of the house gives access to the river and the island terrace.
The main entrance leads into the dining hall, (36m² ) with the original floor paving and mill wheel. Stairs lead to a mezzanine, designed around the grinding stones.
From the Dining Hall there is a door with steps down to the Kitchen (30m²) with red quarry tile flooring. Original Fireplace and Godin stove built into the kitchen area which overlooks the river. Door to pantry.
On the ground floor there are 2 Bedrooms and entrance hall. The entrance hall has the original stone sink and pebbled floor (coeurs desmoiselles). Off the entrance hall is a WC and shower room which has been tastefully finished to a high standard.
From the mezzanine there is a door and steps down to a magnificent Living Room (32m²) with 16th Century fireplace and views to the river. To the other side of the mezzanine there is a landing area leading to the family bathroom, again beautifully finished and furnished with bath, separate shower, WC and 2 sinks. There is a second staircase and the Master Bedroom (20m²) with views on 2 sides to the river.
Outside and across the bridge to the island terrace, there is a workshop and large storeroom, which was once used as a guest bedroom and which could easily be recreated once again as a guest bedroom and bathroom suite.
This truly is a magical property - spacious, without being too big and unmanageable. It has been refurbished to high specification with simple style and taste.
