This old, 290 m² mill, redesigned in the 1950’s, stands in a village with a very good tourist trade in the midst of the Burgundy region. The village still has all local shops. A train station with links to Paris-Austerlitz is not far away.
The village has specialised in pottery since the 14th century. A stoneware museum exhibits traditional and contemporary works by highlighting the creations of Jean-Carries, an innovator in the world of pottery, notably via his sculptural compositions. The house faces a Renaissance style chateau, reconstructed in 1530 by Antoine-de-Rochechouart, chamberlain to King François 1st. The site of the mill is, therefore, listed.
This 18th century mill was constructed over a cellar and a stable. The residence stands out courtesy of its roof which is an unusual one for the region as it features a slate break adjoining a top roof, covered with traditional tiles made in the village. Its quoins and the framing around its openings feature alternating brick and ironstone, both local materials. The window sills are made of white limestone. The small-paned openings on the ground floor are protected by solid wooden shutters. The roof dormers, under curved pediments, are highly decorative. The rendered facades contribute to the interesting contrasts between materials and colours.
A small, road-side garden precedes the residence. A little flight of stone steps leads from there down to the river, La-Vrille. It provides access to the outbuilding which once housed the mill’s wheel. On one side of the house, two original diamond-shaped openings, featuring brick moulding, face the main driveway.
The countryside, exuding harmony, is but an invitation to rest, to read or to paint. For centuries, the quality of the earth has incited potters to come and practice their activity and their art. The millrace, with its full water rights, has been preserved even though the mill no longer has its traditional wheel. The inside of the main residence has been tastefully and unpretentiously redone. The outbuilding, which housed the wheel under a spectacular roofing framework, could do with works to transform it into a guest house. The banks of the river, La-Vrille, appear to be a promise of well-being and inspiration in countryside, ideal for recharging one’s batteries and within easy reach of the French capital.
