Beautiful former Mill set down a quiet lane yet within easy reach of the North Coast. Park-like grounds could offer paddocks in addition to a beautiful private woodland which is bordered by a stream.
This stunning mill is peacefully located on a quiet lane and has the benefit of a south west facing garden, large 2 acre paddock and a private woodland area of nearly 3 acres which runs along a stream.
The property has been well maintained by the current owners and has a number of character features including slate flagstone floors, fireplaces with inset woodburners, exposed ceiling beams and window seats, yet is not listed.
The garden gate opens to a gravel path which leads to the front door. This opens into the family room, a slate floored room with a beautiful granite fireplace with a wood burner. To one side of this room is a door leading to the dining room, itself with a slate floor and an open fireplace flanked by bookshelves. To the opposite side of the house is a large sitting room with dual aspect windows set within the deep walls which overlook the garden.
To the rear of the house there is a kitchen and breakfast room with an Aga. Handmade cabinets sit below a slate worktop with a Belfast sink sitting on a granite stand. There is a large adjoining utility room which is a useful place for boots after a walk in the occasional rain which Cornwall has!
Upstairs there are five good-sized bedrooms, a family bathroom and a seperate family shower room. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and three of the rooms have built in wardrobes.
A second flight of stairs leads up to a sixth bedroom. This has previously been used as an annexe as it has its own entrance from the rear of the house and contains a kitchenette. This room requires some refurbishment however offers the potential for a small letting unit or accommodation for a family member, or as an additional sitting room or media room.
GROUNDS AND GARDEN
Wrapping around the house are attractive landscaped gardens which are terraced to create various planting areas with gravel paths meandering between them. To one side of the house there is a large detached garage and workshop. A gate from the garden also leads to the paddock to the side of the house which has an additional parking area for a number of cars and a large storage barn which would be a useful boat store, or mechanics workshop. Beside this is a well stocked vegetable garden and a fruit cage. Beyond this is a 2 acre level lawned garden or paddock with a stream running through it and an orchard with a number of fruit trees.
To the opposite side of the road is a series of small woodland paddocks which run alongside of the stream. This is a delightful area for walking a dog or for children to play.
