1 The Mill comprises the major central portion (of three parts) of a former water mill, which is reputed to date back to the 1700s. We understand that this particular section was converted into a residence in the late 1940s and presents elevations of whitened render beneath a slate roof. We understand that the property is not listed, but is within a conservation area. The adaptable accommodation is arranged over three storeys, with reception hall, kitchen and dining room at ground floor level, sitting room and study / occasional 4th bedroom and bathroom at first floor level with direct access to the garden and three bedrooms with shower room on the top floor. The property has been tastefully modernised to combine the comforts of modern living, including double glazing, with many original period features which include a Minster fireplace in the sitting room, many exposed beams, wooden floors in the reception areas. The accommodation is bright, spacious and there are good ceiling heights. This is certainly a property that needs to be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

Immediately in front of the house there is an attractive slate courtyard area with raised stone planter and external water tap. Slate steps then lead to the front door which has an overhang porch.
