Edge Mill and Edge Mill Cottage are a delightful pair of detached period dwellings comprising a spacious and adaptable traditional Devon Longhouse and a separate detached cottage, surrounded by 2.4 Acres with gardens, paddock and woodland within a lovely river fronted setting.
EDGE MILL comprises a family orientated kitchen/breakfast room with wood burning stove and space for a table and chairs. A cosy sitting room, living room/study, wet room and utility room on the ground floor and four bedrooms with an en-suite and bathroom on the first floor, all of which overlook the front garden. EDGE MILL COTTAGE is a pretty detached stone two storey cottage, tucked away from the main house comprising sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and a ground floor shower room. This is ideal accommodation for large families or those with a dependent relative looking for an annexe or useful income, which could be achieved from holiday or residential letting. Also within the grounds is a stone GARDEN ROOM which is the perfect home studio which has the potential to be converted into holiday accommodation, subject to the relevant planning permissions. Adjacent to Edge Mill is an impressive detached three storey former corn mill;
THE MILL is currently utilised for storage and workshop space. In 2007, the property was granted permission to interconnect the period mill with the main property to create additional accommodation, which has been started.OUTSIDE
