Located a 30 minutes drive to the north of Aubenas, this is an exceptional property : a former 19th century silk mill comprising three independent dwellings, a huge convertible ground floor space (434m2) with 8835 m2 of land at the border of a river : - the first part (313m2) comprises a dining room, a living room, 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a professional kitchen and a very large terrace (86m2). Oil-fired central heating. - the second part (140m2) comprises a living room with corner kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room, a utility room and another terrace (50m2). Gas-fired central heating and wood burning stove. - a guardian’s lodge (let at the moment) comprising a living room, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Wood burning stove. The ground floor area (434m2) could also be used (former mill work floor). There is also an old stable block on 2 levels that could be converted into another dwelling. - a semi-immersed swimming pool (10m x 4.5m) with slab tiled surrounds. There are 3 septic tanks, mains water and broadband internet.
This historic building dating back to the 19th century once lodged the mill owner and his employees and was a thriving silk factory.
The main part of the property is accessed via a majestic stairway leading up to the large (86m2) terrace, overlooking the stream that flows past the landscaped gardens in front of the house. This part of the property, all on one floor (313m2), has retained its 19th century style : we first have a welcoming entrance hall (24.30m2) with a corridor leading into the huge living room (50m2) and on to a professional kitchen (15m2) and the 8 bedrooms (ranging from 10 to 28m2) along with 3bathrooms and 2 showers
At the end of the building, separated from the first part by an utility room and an ancient bathroom, the second accommodation (140m2) has been restored recently in a more contemporary style. It comprises a living room (30m2) with a very high ceiling and a modern corner kitchen (5.60m2). French windows give access onto an attractive 50m2 terrace. On the same level there is one bedroom (16m2) with upstairs a second, very spacious (68m2) bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
This unique property provides a huge choice of possibilities : several families sharing, holiday lets, and so on. The outbuilding could also be renovated whilst the ground floor could provide yet more.
