A unique chance to own a piece of French history at a very affordable price.
This charming one bed windmill was built in 1885 and provided the local area with its flour for many, many years. The mill ceased working in 1975 and was turned into a home.
The current owner purchased the mill in 2001 and has since them lovingly restored using specialist tradesmen who renovated it with taste and superior quality materials.
The property is arranged over four floors :
On the ground floor is a compact but well equipped dining kitchen.
The spiral staircase then continues up to the first floor where is a well-appointed lounge with double aspect doors and a woodburner.
On to the second floor where there is a good sized shower room and a storage cupboard.
The final flight of spiral steps takes you up to the third floor and a bedroom with a view.
The mill is set in the countryside on the outskirts of the village of St Cyr des Gats which has a bar and a restaurant with depot pain along with a library. The bar also has a small shop for basic supplies.
This is a unique property but would make a wonderfully romantic getaway home for anyone.
Situated in the heart of the Vendée, it is ideally placed to enjoy all the attractions the Vendée and surrounding areas have to offer and the Atlantic Coast and La Rochelle airport are only an hour’s drive away. The main Channel ports of St Malo and Caen are 3 and 4.5 hours respectively, so well within a half day’s drive.
