A very rare chance to buy a historic and unique property in the magnificent Périgord Vert. Le Moulin de la Chabroulie is a complex which includes a large stone building with a restaurant with 30 seats (licence IV full on-licence included), a separate bar and a terrace overlooking the lake, a commercial kitchen built according to health regulations, a owner’s accommodation with a mezzanine bedroom and a large (36 m²) living and dining room, 3/4 bedrooms for rent with lounge area, 2 large workshops and storage room. There is a fully furnished gite in the grounds with its own terrace overlooking the lake and access to the swimming pool (36m²) and sun terrace. The property also includes the mill building which can be used for events (weddings, birthdays, concerts, spitroasts etc.) and can accommodate up to 120 people. The lake is almost 3 ha (6.75 acres ) including 2.5 ha(6acres) of enclosed water (all fish belong to the owner). The property sits in 5.8 ha (14 acres) of woods and fields surrounding the pond.
There is also a 55ft narrowboat to renovate.
The mill was once a forge, paper mill, and flour and walnut oil mill and dates to before the 11th century. The lake and parts of the mill are more than 1000 years old and appear in numerous documents in the Limoges and Périgueux archives. The lake has undergone renovations to the dam wall with the mill sluice gate and the main drain sluice been replaced as new. The lake is awaiting the regularization certificate which gives it the right to operate as a fishing & leisure business for 30 years (Fish farming with tourist promotion, PVT) and the sale depends on this being granted (the necessary steps and work for the upgrading have been made and we await the formalities of the DDT soon). The carp that appear in the galleries are gone and the lake is on sale empty of fish.
The bar / restaurant, owners’ accommodation and rooms for rent (3/4) are equipped with a cellar and workshops, which can be easily reconfigured for almost any requirement. The bar terrace is partly covered with a very old wisteria which is beautiful when in bloom and is also home to nightingales which sing all summer long. The fauna around the pond is very diverse, including two pairs of kingfishers who nest next to the lake and are magnificent to see when fishing. In all it is an idyllic and unique place with a very interesting development potential.
