Price: € 462 000 | Ref.: 3394 | Views: 3 316
Water mill built in 1830 with a number of annexes: a gîte, two sheds and a horse stable. Situated on a sheltered domain of about 25 acres (10 ha) in the rustic Ruisseau de Fougères Valley (valley of the ferns). The domain consists of a swimming pool, a 9-hole golf course and three fishing ponds. And all this right next to a huge (> 2471 acre / 1,000 ha) freely accessible forest. The immediate surroundings in the area feature charming, dreamy villages, but also towns with more entertainment options, like museums, nice classical buildings and churches. The area also holds a number of castles (like Cormatin, Dree, Saint Aubin, Digoine); nearby even a large Buddhist monastery named the 'Temple of 1,000 Buddha's' can be found. Other points of interests are the thermal spas in Bourbon-Lancy and the Paray-le-Monial Basilica. The Burgundy wine regions (Macon, Chalon, Beaune) are 60 to 90 minutes by car, and the same is true for the Celtic Museum near Bibracte, not far from Autun, a city with 3 Roma gates and a theatre.
The former water mill features a cosy living room (8,7 x 4,4 ft) with fireplace, diner-kitchen (5 x 3,8 ft), and an authentic French bathroom with bathtub, shower and toilet on the ground floor. The first floor holds four 2-person bedrooms and a brand-new luxury bathroom with bathtub, shower, bidet, and toilet (5,5 x 2,7 ft). The mill's living area is fitted with central heating. A new propane gas central heating boiler was installed in 2012.
The mill's and gÎte's total habitable area is 205 m2 (spaces with a ceiling over 180 cm). The habitable area of the former technical part of the water mill is also 205 m2, including a garage (10,9 x 3,3 ft/ 10 x 3 m) and an attic (721 sq. ft / 67 sq. m) on the top floor with enough space to add additional bedrooms.
The 24,7 acre (10 ha) property is subdivided into: Fairway golf course: 7,4 acres (3 ha) – 9 holes with a total length of 2450 yards [2240 m] (the longest holes are 569, 468, and 441 yards [520, 428, and 403 m]) and 4 winter greens (for 2 or 3 holes) – see attached golf score card (with playful local rules). Meadow with 2 very old and large oak trees: 3,2 acres (1,3 ha) are in use by the neighbour for grazing his Charolais cattle. Three 9568, 5980, and 478 sq. ft (8000, 5000, and 400 sq. m) fishing ponds populated mainly with carp. The whole terrain is cut in half by the 8,7-yards (8 metres) wide mill river: 1,2 acres (0,5 ha). Streaming creek next to the road. Garden in front of behind the home: 0,5 acres (0,2 ha).
There is an Aquinox (H2O2 injection) 13 x 5,5 ft (12 x 5 m) swimming pool with a 144 sq. yd (120 sq. m) sun deck, which holds a 65 sq. ft (54 sq. m) dining area under a mulberry tree roof. Right next to this we find the T-box for the golf course and a winter green nearby at 164 ft (50 m). There is a bamboo mat covered pergola on the 3,3 x 3,3 ft (3 x 3 m) sun deck at the pool to escape the summer sun if needed. The remainder of the domain consists
This year a new septic tank was installed; the electrical cabling is adapted to the most recent regulations. The complex holds materials for mowing the golf course, dams and garden: John Deere tractor 748 4WD 18kW with 5 feet (1,5 m) mowing unit (3 circle mowers), a trailer for moving the John Deere tractor, a John Deere hand mower for the garden, a hand reel mower for the winter greens and a brush cutter (Stihl). Furthermore, there is a generator, compressor, wood chipper and a pressure washer.
In the last 10 years the domain developed into a magnificent landscape park, forming an ideal accommodation for parties up to 12 persons (6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms). The simple golf course is highly challenging and has lots of water holes. One can play with two flights.
