Stunning conversion of an old mill, with private pond and mill race in the large garden - a really unusual property!

This old mill has been converted into a beautiful family home, with potential for B&B income and with the added bonus of its own, private mill pond and stream.

Situated just a few miles north of the university city of Alençon, the property has been converted in an imaginative and stylish manner, using the natural contours of the land to create a home over three floors. The top floor would lend itself to B&B letting, as it can be accessed without disturbing the rest of the house.

There is ample parking behind automatic gates, and the fishing in the mill pond is an added attraction for visitors. The large garden includes a secure paddock, currently housing two goats, which could accommodate a pony.

Situated on th edge of a small village, the property is entered through automatic gates which open onto a generous gravelled parking area with a small barn currently used as a spacious garage.

One enters the house on the middle floor, which has three large rooms - a well-appointed kitchen with breakfast area, a huge sitting room with wood stove in a large fireplace, and a large family room.

A stair from the sitting room leads down to the lower level, which looks out onto the front garden. Here there are three bedrooms, a family bathroom, a cellar, and a utility room with workshop facilities - this latter room has a door to the garden.

A stair from the family room leads to the top floor in the attic space; here there is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom, and space to create another bedroom if required. This upper floor, together with the family room, could easily be used as a self-contained holiday let or B&B.
