Converted to a high standard this former boulangerie and mill, located on the edge of a popular village, now provide a beautiful family home with the possibility of creating further accommodation if desired. The main part of the property has been renovated to provide 4 bedrooms (one en-suite), living room, kitchen with large pantry, office, WC, beautiful family bathroom and large attic which currently provides further sleeping accommodation. There is also a partially renovated barn which provides a great space for entertaining, but could easily be converted to create additional accommodation. The mill house is attached to the main house and is still to be converted. It offers great potential to expand the existing living accommodation, and a link already exists between the buildings. A B&B would also work well here. In addition, there is a large barn and other outbuildings which could also be converted. The house is surrounded by a pretty garden, with a river running along the side of the property (complete with small waterfall).
This beautiful property is located on the edge of the lively village of Encausse-les-Thermes, in the Haute Garonne. The village has all the amenities you might need, including pharmacy, post office, doctors, school, supermarket, and bakery. There is also a lovely park with tennis courts, and the thermal baths in the village often hold cultural events. The village is in close proximity to the larger town of Saint Gaudens (approximately 15 minutes), and it is an hour from Toulouse.
The property comprises the following: Ground floor: The house is approached down a private driveway to the front of the house, where there is ample space to park several cars. The house is entered through a hallway with a WC to the rear. It then leads through to the kitchen, which is definitely the heart of this house. The large family kitchen is beautifully appointed and has a bright and open feeling. It still has the original large Victorian bread oven, as well as a double Aga. It easily accommodates a large dining table, and it has the benefit of a very large pantry, providing plenty room to store food and all of the utilities that are better tucked away, such as washing machine and fridge/freezers. The kitchen also has doors which lead to a small pretty seating area outside, which overlooks the river and the old water wheel. The kitchen adjoins a large study which then leads through to the living room. This room is lovely and cosy, with a wood burner creating the focal point of the room. This room also has a door which connects through to the mill house. It is currently unused, but can easily be opened if the mill house were to be renovated in the future. First floor: From the living room lovely wooden stairs lead up to the first floor, where the main bedrooms are located. All of the rooms are good sized double bedrooms and retain many of the original features of the house. The first floor also has a truly beautiful, large, family bathroom with roll top bath, shower, and adjoining toilet. The bedroom to the rear also benefits from an en-suite shower room. The master bedroom has the unusual feature of a window which looks through to the adjoining barn. A connection could easily be made here, if desired. The attic is accessed from the first floor, and provides a large area for further sleeping accommodation, games room, gym, or simply for storage. There is a separate room in the attic which is currently used as a bedroom. Outside. This property has huge potential in the numerous outbuildings to extend the living accommodation, or to create several gites, or a B&B business
The Mill House: The mill house joins the main house and provides three levels of development potential. The structural condition is excellent, and the house has a very pretty stone exterior. Much of the original mill equipment is still within the house, and could be retained in some form to create a very unusual and quirky renovation. Equally, it would require only a small amount of renovation to get it back up and running and providing electricity. The mill race run through the garden and under the mill house, where the turnbine is.
Barn 1: This barn also connects to the main house, and has been partially renovated. At present it offers two large spaces, one at ground level and one at first floor level. There is also a small enclosed balcony at first floor level. The barn provides great entertaining space for parties and family gatherings currently, but it could be converted into a stand alone gite, or further living/B&B accommodation, without too much work. To the front of the barn is a garage area which has ample space for two vehicles. Alternatively, this could be incorporated into the barn renovation.
Barn 2: The second barn is attached to the mill house and currently provides a very large, double height, garage and storage area. It overlooks the river running alongside the property and, if it were to be renovated, advantage could certainly be taken of this pretty aspect. Attached to the barn there is also a small carport. Outbuildings: In addition to the buildings listed above, the property also has a large outbuilding which was formerly used for animals. This provides a useful storage area, or could be converted to provide self contained accommodation, subject to planning consents.
The garden: The house has a pretty garden which wraps around it to the side and front. There is a lovely grassed area alongside the river which makes a perfect place to sit out and look over the small waterfall. There is also sufficient space within the garden to the side of the house to create a separate driveway, to separate business and personal cars if desired.
