Charming mill for sale in the Scie valley
Normandy is crossed by many rivers and streams representing an interesting energy to harness. Originally, the term mill comes from the verb grind and the word grind. The first mills therefore had a food vocation. The mastery of the management of watercourses prompted the creation of many variants of more or less industrial mills. In the Pays de Caux, a region favored for its deep lands and its mild, oceanic climate, hydraulic energy was also used industrially to break up the fiber of flax, a very local production.
Charming mill very well renovated with a very large living room and 4 bedrooms in the immediate vicinity of Auffay and its SNCF train station
Located on the Saw, our mill for sale has not kept its wooden wheel but its location can be guessed very well on the river frontage. The water from the Saw is perfectly controlled by solid ripe sandstone, without any winnowing and without risk of flooding for the mill itself.
Having become a very comfortable country house on three levels, the current owners have perfectly preserved the charm of the place, by adding numerous openings letting light in abundantly. The interior beams have simply been cleaned to retain their natural color. The ground floor is entirely devoted to living rooms with a large living-dining room for entertaining, a kitchen open to a very friendly dining area for family breakfasts. In addition, the bathroom has become a shower room. Practice after a swim in the river!
On the first floor, the largest bedroom is currently a library or video library with a view of the river from three sides. Two bedrooms, a dressing room and a bathroom will welcome the members of the family. On the second floor, you will find a shower room, a large bedroom with a mezzanine and an attic offering further development potential.
The bathrooms are recent and comfortable. With 4 bedrooms, this mansion has become an ideal and comfortable family home.
