This magnificent watermill steeped in history, with its canals and private island, offers you the opportunity to acquire a work of French cultural heritage and participate in its preservation. Founded around 1600, it features an impressive, restored Sagebien wheel with operational machinery, an inlet canal, a spillway with its discharge canal, an outlet canal, and diversion bays. The footbridge and sluice gates have been refurbished. The boat-shaped island features a henhouse and a dovecote used as a play area.

The adjoining house, tastefully renovated and with a south-facing facade, comprises on the first floor: an entrance hall, an attractive fitted kitchen-diner with a granite fireplace converted into a hood, a central island with a washbasin and a butcher's block, and a hallway with a cupboard containing a gas boiler for heating and hot water supply.
On the other side of the entrance hall, there's a double living room with marble fireplace and toilet.
It would be possible to create a direct access to the mill from the kitchen, opening onto a space that could become a living room with a view of the monumental wheel.
The staircase leads to a landing with a beautiful master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further bright bedrooms, toilet and a spacious bathroom with bath, shower and storage cupboard.
The attic could be converted to create two or three additional bedrooms and a shower room.
The double-leaf front door and windows are double-glazed.

On the side of the house, a charming waterside terrace with barbecue is an ideal place to share and relax, enjoying the peace and quiet and the breathtaking views over the island and the green countryside. On the other side is a carport.

The gravelled courtyard in front of the house contains a well, a garden and a workshop with water point and fireplace, easily convertible into a guest house or gîte.
A former grain store, part of which has been converted into a garage, could be converted into a gîte, studios for students or a reception room for festive events.
Lastly, a barn with trough and racks, as well as recent roof windows, and whose gable faces the street, could be suitable for a gîte, showroom or even a store.
This beautiful property is not only a haven of peace, it also offers commercial potential, as well as the possibility of generating and selling electricity.

Book your visit to this site, which is not listed as a historic monument, but is nonetheless a real treasure of French heritage.
