Country riverside house (Former Watermill)

Moulin de la Saucerie, Domfront en Poiraie, 61700 Normandy
Detached House
5 Beds
2 Baths
2 Garages
280 m²

Built upon a former watermill dating from the 16th century, the house was modified and extended in the 1970s to create a comfortable five bedroom family home which sits on a long plot of land bordering the Egrenne river.

Accessed by a bridge, the house enjoys unspoilt, pleasant views across the surrounding countryside. It is private and peaceful yet located only a few kilometres from the historic medieval town of Domfront En Poiraie with its schools, shops and other facilities.

On entering the property there is a small hall with access to the kitchen and living room as well as a small storage room. The kitchen is bright and overlooks the front and back of the house. There is a rear door onto the sunny, South facing terrace which enjoys far reaching views across open fields. Steps from the terrace take you down to the sheltered rear garden and decked area.

The spacious living room has an open fireplace and double doors leading to a large salon which is currently used as a games room. There is also a door that leads to the staircase and a further door giving access to the cellar which still houses the original watermill machinery. There is also a downstairs toilet.

Upstairs there are five large bedrooms, a shower room and a large bathroom.

Outside, there is a good sized field/paddock of approximately 0.7 hectares, a log shed, a summerhouse and carports for 3 vehicles as well as an old barn which will require some restoration. The river runs along the long plot of land with the old mill stream on the other side. There are two ponds and a wooded area at one end of the plot.
