EXCLUSIVE – A stunning former watermill offering 178 sq. m of habitable space, on a total plot of over 12 acres. It is perfectly situated in the rural setting, close to the rural village of Bouère but within striking distance of Meslay-du-Maine, Sablé-sur-Sarthe, Laval and Angers. Nestled in the valley, with the river meandering across the land and to the rear of the house, this property is idyllic and a winner for those who enjoy nature.
Consisting of the former mill building and the separate mill cottage, these two buildings have been joined by a glass atrium to provide a home. The period features of the original buildings are in perfect harmony with the modern conveniences, stunning atrium, and beautiful kitchen (2021). The large sitting room offers a heavily beamed study area and then magnificent sitting area with cathedral ceiling and picture window overlooking the river and area where the water wheel would have been sited. A small utility room and shower room with walk-in shower and WC complete this part of the house. The sitting leads into the atrium with patio doors opening to the riverbank on one side or a south-facing deck – perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine. The atrium flows through to the new fitted kitchen which is a any cook’s delight! The formal dining room leads off the kitchen and offers onto the large terrace bordering the river and garden. Stairs lead to the upper floor with the landing offering onto 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and WC. A mezzanine over the sitting room also gives onto a third bedroom, completing the accommodation.
A bridge leads across the river to the rear garden which is laid to lawn, and which gives onto the fields. These have been exclusively for hay for the last 15+ years with no chemicals having been applied. Ideal for horses or livestock, or for hay, the fields are separated by the river, with a nature area which has been left for the local wildlife.
A superb property, in a delightful rural location, and with a neighbouring property, is not isolated. A real must see!
