About this property
Dating back several centuries this restored mill house has three bedrooms, approximately 1 hectare of land and a swimming pool. Beautiful woodland location beside a little stream. The stuff of fariytales!
Secluded and in its own valley this adorable restored mill house measures approximately 160 square metres. The ground floor consists of a kitchen/dining room which opens onto a paved terrace that wraps around the property. There is also a spacious sitting room with a large open fireplace and partially exposed stone walls. On this same floor there is a guest bathroom and a handy walk-in storage room. The boiler, washing machine and water pump are housed in a very useful separate room with external access via a sheltered little patio area that is ideal for barbeques.
Stairs from the kitchen lead to the upper floor where there is a master bedroom and ensuite with tub, a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a family bathroom with shower. The property has traditional exposed wooden beams and terracotta ceiling tiles. There is central heating fired by LPG, 6 kilowatts of electricity, a 38 metre deep well and a telephone line is connected.
Approximately 1 hectare of land surrounds the property and dips down to the stream which bubbles along gently and is pleasing to both eye and ear. The 4.5 x 10 metre swimming pool sits above and behind the property alongside the stream. Cleverly placed, the pool is close to the house but invisible to it. There is a small ruin, once a tile kiln, near to the property, the space of which can be recuperated to create a separate guest house. The garden and land is well looked after in a seemingly effortless way; the natural landscape is gently tamed rather than being dominated ands this adds to the magical feel of this lovely property.
The pool measures 10 x 4.5 and the deep end is 2 metres in depth. It is a cement pool, grey with a smooth but non-slip surround and edge. It currently has a chlorine system but could be converted to a saltwater one if need be.
Both the pool and property enjoy all day sun and though the location is secluded with no other buildings in sight, the sound of the church bells in Preggio can be heard from time to time. For lovers of wildlife and nature this property is ideal with deer, frogs, fish, herons, birds including nightingales and nightjars, hare, porcupine, wild boar (at a distance), land crabs and masses of butterflies and moths, all attracted by the 'edge of woodland' setting and stream.
Mulino Le Vigne is secluded being 2 kilometres from the tiny village of Preggio but, the upside of that is the extreme peace and tranquility of the location which really is magical. Preggio has an annual Summer Opera Festival and an Autumn Chestnut Festival.
