Old water mill with private residence, gîte, small camping site and outbuildings on 5,6 hectares (13.4 acres) of land on the bank of a small river rich in fish. In the hilly area between the Allier and the Loire, just on the Bourgogne-Auvergne border, near the hamlet of La Chapelle aux Chasses, in the valley of the little Acolin River, we find the old water mill le Moulin Bouquet. After a period of 15 'golden' years the owner/resident would now like to pass the baton. Le Moulin Bouquet (www.lemoulinbouquet.com) offers many opportunities to realise your French dreams.
The village features a restaurant (2 couverts Michelin guide) and Chevagnes offers further amenities, like a bakery with delicious products. Just 20 minutes by car offers you all the amenities, like in Moulins, Decizes or Bourbon Lancy. 50 km (30 miles) to the north are Nevers and the Morvan, while 30 km (19 miles) to the south are Vichy and the Montagne Bourbonnais. The popular amusement park le Pal with a large zoo is just 20 km (12 miles) off.
Le Moulin Bouquet consists of a private residence with a habitable area of about 150 sq. m (500 sq. ft). The ground floor features a large dining/lounge room with pretty mantelpiece, a second chamber now decorated as an office, a large kitchen with all conveniences, a corridor, pantry, separate toilet and bathroom with bathtub. The 4 spacious and sunny bedrooms can also be accessed from a French balcony, besides the staircase from the living room. There is a large vaulted cellar under the private residence. The garden features a bread oven.
The gîte and the small apartment, fully renovated in 2007, together can accommodate 6 persons, and have a total habitable area of 117 sq. m (384 sq. ft).
The gîte consists of a living/dining room with an open kitchen and an attic room. Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms. The bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet are on the ground floor.
The small apartment has a private access and entrance hall with separate toilet and a bathroom with shower and washbasin. Furthermore a small, fully equipped kitchenette and sitting/bedroom with a 2-person sofa bed. The gite and the small apartment can be used together or separately.
The large, 2-person caravan of 10 sq. m (6.5 ft) on private terrain at the water side has a fixed new bed. The simple kitchen and toilet are in the camping building.
The large mill building with 3 floors of 240 sq. m (787 sq. ft) offers many opportunities for new projects and currently serves as storage. At the road there is a large, renovated hangar/garage and connected to the mill building there is a roofed wood storage and parking facility for 4 cars.
The 5.6 hectare (13.4 acre) domain consists of meadows, surrounded by trees and hedges, through which the little Acolin River flows. Near the mill, the water forms a reservoir lake on which the gîte and two-person apartment are situated. The lake flows further down the terrain via a wide waterfall. To both sides of the waterfall one can have a lovely swim, while the sandy beach behind the mill is excellent for playing children. The sandy beach is behind the water mill.
The comfortable private residence with large garden faces south. Also overlooking the Acolin is a charming vintage caravan on a private little domain. Behind it we can find a mini camping site along the water with a large day facility for guests.
The gîte, the apartment, the caravan, the camping site an the private residence all have their private separate domain with private access.
All the buildings are in a good state of repair. The private residence on the ground floor is fitted with new doors and windows with double glazing and an insulated roof/attic. The gîte and the little apartment are also fitted with double glazing, roof insulation and partly with roof insulation, respectively.
The electrical wiring has been adapted and fully renewed, as are the water supply lines and pumps. The water well offers excellent and plenty of drinking water; at the same time the property is connected to the municipal water supply. Water drainage and full water purification have been fully updated according to current standards, with a sewage farm on private land. All roofs are in a good state of repair. The roof is covered with solar panels and the garden features a bread oven.
All rooms are fitted with electrical heating, while the gîte and the private residence also have wood burners.
There is no need for immediate action, but a person with vision and dreams can realise a great deal here. The buildings can be further developed or become entirely self-sustaining by using the stables and gardens. On this property climate-neutral living is realistic.
