A Fully Restored Water Mill of Immense Charm and Character

4 Beds; Large Lake; Summer Kitchen; Barns; 4.4 HA - Ideal Grazing Land; Pyrenean Views


This charming 18C water mill benefits from an exceptionally idyllic location, slightly hidden in a peaceful valley, yet only 5 minutes from its neighbouring market town, which offers all the necessary amenities.   One of the most striking features is the lake to the rear of the water mill, which occupies 1 hectare (2.4 acres) and is home to carp, blueback herring and trout.  The lake has a deck from which the current owners can swim and a small island, which is accessed by a bridge.

The Water Mill was sympathetically restored, by its current owners, 10 years ago and now benefits from a gas fired central heating system; double glazing throughout; a new kitchen; new bathrooms; and a new septic tank system.  Accommodation is offered over two wings in the Mill.  The east wing entrance opens into a small salon, which leads into the kitchen and the large sitting-dining room (with access to the rear terrace and views onto the lake); upstairs there is a bedroom and a shower room.  The west wing entrance opens into a small hallway leading into an attractive conservatory (with access to the summer kitchen) and with views to the Mill Stream); and a utility room. The first floor offers three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. 

Furthermore, the estate includes a barn which currently offers workshop space, but would be ideal for stabling ; a large wood store and an animal shelter.  The total land measures 4.4 hectares and offers suitable grazing land for livestock.

The beautiful historic city of Pau is just 35 minutes away and the ski slopes of the Pyrénées, the Atlantic coast and the Spanish border can be reached in around one hour. Situated 35 minutes north east of Pau.   Pau airport 35 minutes; Tarbes / Lourdes 20 minutes; Toulouse airport 90 minutes.
