Property description
An old, 17th century mill in parklands of almost 1.5 ha crossed by a river in the upper Anjou region - ref 700798
The village, with a few shops, is on the outskirts of a small town which has all the usual shops and amenities, including a hospital. The surrounding undulating countryside has many hedges and ditches whilst the town of Angers, with its TGV train station and 1½ hour links to Paris (about ten daily return TGV train journeys), is a little more than 30 minutes away.
The road, which runs along one side of the property walls, provides access to a secondary entrance to the mill, set in its south gable wall, and to gates that open on to a driveway leading to its main entrance. The parklands, crossed by a river, surround the mill on the three other sides. In front is a swimming pool and, near to the building, a terrace extended by a bridge, leading to the grasslands on the other bank. The parklands are planted with mature trees and enhanced with numerous ornamental bushes.

The mill

The origins of this mill date back to the 12th century. Heavily redesigned in the 17th century, it spans three levels. It is constructed from lime-rendered quarry stone blocks and comprises a main, rectangular building and a small pavilion, adjoining its north gable. The main building, with a freestone cornice running all the way around it, is topped with a Mansard style roof whilst the small pavilion has a 3-sloped roof. Both roofs are covered in slate and feature roof dormers. Most of the windows on the front and rear facades are fitted with wooden shutters.

Our opinion
The immediate landscape is one of natural surroundings and water courtesy of the tall trees in the parklands and the river going through them. The old mill exudes the rusticity of stone and the elegance of the local Angers slate covering its roofs. Here, peace and quiet does not mean isolation, such that the 650 m² of living space will greatly appeal to a large family and its guests.
