This impressive stone-built mill, bordered by a stream is situated near a small, rural hamlet outside Dunet.
The four-bedroom property sits over several levels with lots of living space and bags of character including exposed beans, open stonework and old mill workings displayed throughout and it has the possibility of generating its own electricity if the Francis turbine already in situ was restored and adapted.
The property dates from the 17th century and appears on the map of Cassini, the first mapping of France in its entirety drawn by the Cassini family.
The mill is steeped in history and has been used for walnut and rape seed oil production as well as grinding flour in the past. Today it is a lovely family home which has been extensively and sympathetically renovated by the current owners and benefits from a new roof, double glazing, oil fired central heating while retaining many original features.
It is less than 10 minutes drive from a popular village with cafés, local shops and a small supermarket, 20 minutes from the autoroute and a little over an hour to Limoges airport
