An old mill emerging from its verdant haven 1½ hours from Paris in the French department of Yonne.
Less than 10 km from Sens, a dynamic town with some 30,000 inhabitants and direct links to Paris by road (1½ hours via the A6 or A5 motorways) or by train (55 minutes to Paris-Bercy). It also has a great wealth of heritage, in particular, France’s first gothic cathedral. About 40 km from Fontainebleau.
This property stands outside of a village with 600 inhabitants. A little tarmac road crosses through fields and woods to the mill in its natural setting. The old caretaker’s cottage, approx. 200 m away, is the only neighbour.
The mill, its outbuildings and the river surround the courtyard, forming the centre of the property. The limestone buildings and Burgundy tile roofs bestow this property with harmony. Enclosed meadows, with a brook running through, a Fontainebleau sand horse schooling arena and woods surround the buildings, spanning a total surface area of 5 hectares. A long millrace carries water to the mill’s turbine.
The origins of this mill are very old. The current owner has a copy of the act of sale drawn up in 1660 when the nuns from the neighbouring convent, owner at that time, sold the mill to the local lord, forcing local peasants to have their wheat ground there.
The millThis mill faces east-west. A tall, robust building, spanning approx. 300 m² over three levels, it is constructed from stone and is partially rendered. It has numerous openings, fitted with solid shutters, on both facades. The roof features roof dormers. The attic space of a lower, communicating section has been converted. Five bedrooms, a vast living room also used as a dining room, a fitted kitchen and a small lounge. The voluntarily rustic decor still has its original features: floor tiles dating from 1900 as well as terracotta floor tiles, French ceilings, strip pattern parquet flooring, built-in cupboards and a brick fireplace. The decor upstairs is plain: each bedroom has its own recently converted shower room. A room in the attic space, featuring the exposed roofing framework is currently in use as a study. A cellar houses a wood-fired boiler. The ground floor rooms on the courtyard side are currently laid out as a workshop, an exercise room and a storage room. The old turbine is still in place and is but waiting for expert hands to give it back its initial function.The outbuildings and the parklandsSurrounding the central courtyard and facing the mill, a barn (with two horse loose boxes), a wooden shed, a garage with wooden flooring forming an upstairs, on the other side, four horse loose boxes and a tack room, whilst further on there is an old dairy; together, they span a total surface area of approx. 300 m².
Five hectares surround the property on all sides. They are essentially composed of woods, enclosed meadows with animal shelters, a garden section with a terrace and a 1,200 m² sandy schooling arena. Water is omnipresent (millrace, brook, swimming area at the foot of the waterfall).
