Amenities: The golf course (Rimaison) is less than 1 mile away.

River frontage. The river is navigable to the coast at Lorient to the south and joins the Nantes-Brest canal at Pontivy. Fishing rights.

Main buildings.
The main house. The house is not fully restored. It is plastered and painted throughout though. It has mains water connected to the bathroom. The hot and cold pipes also go to the kitchen ready for connecting whatever kitchen units one might install. The attic (a very large chestnut floor boarded area) has great potential for conversion.

A large workshop to the left of house with second floor. A modern septic tank has recently been installed and passed the local authorities specifications. Garage. The watermill. A further house and land is available if required. This could be converted into a gite.

Price. Just reduced to 300.000 Euros.

Size of land approx 1.2 hectares (more negotiable)

Size of buildings internal sizes: See plans.

Generating electricity. If you’re interested in generating electricity, then this mill is ideally situated on a premier one river (the Blavet). Louis 16th. gave the water rights to any owner of a mill on a premier one river provided it was in situ in 1540 approx. This mill certainly was. It was restored to it existing condition in 1556 by the same builders and stonemasons that built the Chateau de Rimaison (where the golf club now is situated) Either side of the mill there is a head race. 2 feet one side and 4 feet the other. The difference in water height is approx 2 meters all year round. An enormous amount of electricity could be produced here. There are grants available and EDF are compelled to purchase your electricity at a price higher than it would cost to buy, to encourage small producers.

Well. There is a well by the main house with clear water. It was tested in 2005 and was fine for drinking.
