Beautifully situated old watermill in its own natural park of 8 hectares
Price: € 345 000 | Ref.: 2729 | Views: 411
The location is truly magic: an old watermill on a sunny location in the lovely south-western part of the Morvan, a beautiful natural area in the centre of Burgundy. The watermill of Grandry (moulin de Grandry) is in fact a small hamlet consisting of three well-habitable buildings; the home of the miller (the upper house), the mill building and the house at the riverside surrounded by 8 hectares of forest, rivers, streams, ponds and picturesque meadows. The price is 345.000 euros. It's also possible to buy less land. The mill is located 300 miles from Le Havre and 350 miles from Calais. For much more information and pictures see our website: moulindegrandry.com.
The house below is directed outwards, it's has three bedrooms of which one downstairs has a beautiful view of the garden, a modern bathroom with walk-in shower. A large living room and well insulated open plan living- kitchen/ conservatory with view on the organic kitchen garden, the river, the waterfall and the meadows. The centre building has a large workshop, also to be used as living room, four stables for storage, a large garage, an attic, basement and a nicely finished room. The top house is the old miller's house and has a spacious, simple kitchen/diner, large living room with original French ceiling, an old brick furnace and three bedrooms on the top floor. WC and shower cubicle are on the ground floor. The miller's house is sometimes rented out to nature lovers.
The forest (hornbeam hedging, oak and acacia) provides more than enough wood for heating all year round and the property has been managed as a natural reserve where there are butterflies (over a hundred counted species). badgers, marters, wild cat, lizards and many different bird species. We are reworded for this careful management: there are kingfishers to be spotted here and does bring their young to the property. With a bit of luck you might even sport the odd wild boar here. For two months, a beaver inspects our site and we hope that he or she wants to settle along the banks of the river.
Almost all windows are double glazed. The property has potential to yield a good income (B & B, Camping place, Holiday Rentals, groups, etc..). This was never our priority as we spent most of our time enjoying the place. You can make endless walks here on the private terrain, on the quiet roads, in the forests, and the cafe/restaurant is only 400 metres away. Three larger towns with all amenities are 14 kms away as well as a large leisure lake.
