Property Description

Positioned within idyllic grounds of approximately 1.5 acres; The Old Mill offers a wealth of opportunities and versatility to a prospective purchaser. This charming Grade II Listed former Mill is believed to date back to the late 17th/early 18th century. The property offers a 4/5 bedroom main residence, Two, 2 bedroom holiday cottages and planning for a further 2 bedroom holiday cottage by way of converting the current double garage with flat/store above.

Our clients currently use the main residence as their home, while the two; two-bedroom properties are utilised as successful holiday lets. While ideal for those looking for investments, The Old Mill would also be perfect for those looking for multi-generational living.

In brief, the main accommodation has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, arranged over three floors. there is also a spacious living room with vaulted ceiling and a feature fireplace, dining hall and well-equipped kitchen. From the dining area, behind a glazed screen, you can also see the former mill workings, taking in the precise craftsmanship dating back to the early 1700’s. The mill is very unique in that it originally had two water wheels on two different aspects. One wheel is still in situ.

As mentioned, each holiday let property offers two-bedroom accommodation. The first has accommodation over two floors: a kitchen and living room on the ground floor with two bedrooms and the family bathroom on the first floor. The second dwelling is all on one level, providing the same description of accommodation.

The tranquil landscaped gardens must be viewed to be appreciated. There are streams within the grounds, a small lake and an array of mature shrubs and plants. Some of which are exotic – including palms and yuccas.

Opportunities to secure such a unique residence are increasingly rare and we advise all those interested, to contact us at their earliest opportunity.
