A watermill like you’ve never seen before - a solid building which has seen natural forces passing by century after century– restored into a comfortable, contemporary, easy to live in, with bright and large volumes, prestigious home. This unique stone property is located in the greater Montpellier area, Languedoc Roussillon, South of France. The small stream crossing the property offers either a quick paddle in the summer, a swim in the midst of pure nature and singing birds, or to cool down after a pleasant walk on the premises. The renovation from top to bottom has been done with quality materials and taste, preserving charm and authenticity. There are exposed stones, vaulted ceilings combined with white rendered walls, iron staircase, top modern family kitchen, modern bath and shower rooms, large terraces, security glass with rolling shutters and very appreciated and unusual to have sliding doors that disappear completely into the walls. Nothing has been neglected; all has been done to perfection. The garden, nature, smell, the sun and the bird song are all over inviting you to come IN the house. A property for nature lovers with no close neighbours – and incredible - all commodities and infrastructure are just a short drive away. Unexpected BUT REAL!
