Without doubt one of the finest mill conversions we have had the pleasure to bring to the market. A superb conversion of a former water powered mill, and being the principle property in this small and exclusive development of just four properties. Located in an idyllic and semi-rural position on the edge of Micklethwaite, offering an exclusive and peaceful location, surrounded by countryside. Set by the original mill pond, the Watermill is a handsome and substantial property, constructed of coursed stone, under a pitched stone slate roof and with Georgian style windows. The current owners have carried out extensive redesign and refurbishment of the property, sympathetic to the buildings character and original features, whilst being enhanced for modern living. The property offers over 2200 of contemporary living, with good sized gardens to the front and rear, along with a garage and additional parking, this is an exceptional family home.
