Mill Cottage is a wonderful home brimming with character and charm. The property has beautiful rural surroundings and benefits from a self-contained annexe and several outbuildings that provide an ideal space for running a business.

Inside, the main house features a living room, a utility room/shower room and an open-plan kitchen dining family room with a viewing gallery above. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom.

The Coach House is a fantastic self-contained annexe with its own private entrance. The accommodation comprises an open-plan living/dining/kitchen on the ground floor. There are two double bedrooms and a modern shower room situated on the first floor.

Outside, there is plentiful parking and mature grounds of around 2 acres surrounding the property. There are also two large outbuildings, which with the relevant permission being granted could be used for rural business or converted into holiday lets.

A pathway flanked by lawned gardens leads to the original part of the cottage, which is entered via a porch, with a window to the front aspect and an opening through to the living room.

Living Room
The light and spacious living room forms part of the original building and is packed full of period features including exposed beams to the ceiling, floor-to-ceiling beams and a charming inglenook fireplace with a Clearview wood burner set upon a slate hearth.

From the living room, a set of French doors to the side accesses the decking and an open doorway flows into the kitchen dining room.

Kitchen/dining room
Situated to the rear of the property is a wonderful open-plan kitchen/dining room benefitting from underfloor heating throughout.

The spacious dining area has ample room for up to a ten-seater dining table and makes for an excellent entertaining area. There are also French doors leading onto the patio.

Following on from the dining room is the modern fitted kitchen which has a range of wooden wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating a one-and-a-half bowl sink with a drainer and a flexi-hose mixer tap and an additional rinse tap. Integrated appliances include a double-eye-level oven, a hob and an extractor fan.

The kitchen also has under-counter space for a dishwasher and a fridge, recessed spotlighting to the ceiling, a wall-mounted plate rack and a window to the side.

Both the kitchen and dining area benefit from huge floor-to-ceiling triple-glazed windows with French doors to the terrace. These windows flood the space with natural light and create the perfect place for indoor and outdoor entertaining.

Viewing gallery
From the kitchen, a staircase rises to a viewing gallery featuring an incredible vaulted ceiling with a wall of floor-to-ceiling triple-glazed windows to the rear, with the most remarkable views across the fields and countryside beyond.

This versatile room would also make for an incredible master bedroom if required.

Utility room
Accessed from the living room is a useful utility with an adjoining shower room. The utility room features tiled flooring throughout and beams and recessed spotlighting to the ceiling.

The utility area has a range of farmhouse-style wall and base units, with work surfaces over incorporating a sink with a drainer and mixer tap, and there is also under counter space for a washing machine.

Shower room
Situated to the side, the shower room is open plan to the utility room and includes a modern suite with a low-level WC, a stylish bowl washbasin set upon a vanity unit and a shower cubicle with rainfall shower and additional handheld shower attachment. There is also tiling to the splashbacks and a towel radiator.

First floor
From the reception room, a staircase rises to a spacious and light landing, with a window to the front and doors accessing the bedrooms and family bathroom.

Bedroom one
Bedroom one is a spacious double room with a wall of built-in wardrobes and storage, a window to the front and a Velux window to the rear aspect.

Bedroom two
The second bedroom is a good-sized double room and features a window to the side.

Family bathroom
Servicing bedrooms one and two is the spacious family bathroom comprising a WC, a bathtub and a washbasin set upon a vanity unit. The bathroom also has tiling to the walls and flooring, plentiful vanity storage to one wall and a Velux window to the rear aspect.

Coach house
South of Mill Cottage is a two-bedroom self-contained Coach House including a kitchen and shower room. There is also a spacious double garage adjoining the Coach House.

Kitchen/living room
The open plan living kitchen room has a lounge area to the front featuring a window and the entrance door to the front aspect. There is space for a dining table and chairs alongside the usual living room furniture and the kitchen is nicely tucked away.

Situated to the rear, there is a kitchen area comprising wall and base units, with work surfaces over incorporating a one-and-a-half bowl sink with drainer and mixer tap. There is also space for a slot-in cooker in this room.

First floor
There is a light and spacious landing, with a Velux window to the front aspect and doors accessing the bedrooms and shower room.

Bedrooms one and two
The two bedrooms are both double rooms and have pleasant rural views from the dual-aspect windows to the front and side.

Shower Room
The shower room has a contemporary white suite comprising a low-level WC, a washbasin and a shower cubicle. There is stylish tiling to the walls, tiling to the floor and a Velux window to the rear.

Gardens and grounds
This beautiful property sits within around 2 acres of gardens and woodland. The outside space has much to offer and has a decked area, a terrace, a log store, a greenhouse and more.

The rear garden has a raised terrace accessed from the kitchen and dining room, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining and admiring the panoramic views across the countryside towards Corvedale.

Beyond the terrace, there is a gravelled garden featuring an array of plantings including a specimen palm tree. This area of the garden also features a log store and a greenhouse. From here there is a sizeable lawned garden and woodland beyond.

The decked area wraps around to the front of the house where there is a natural stream and a 20ft waterfall. The front garden also features a lawned area with mature planting, shrubbery and trees to the borders.

Also found within the grounds are two large timber-constructed outbuildings, which were previously used as farm buildings. These sizeable buildings are 70ft and 48ft long and have the potential for rural business or the conversion into holiday lets, subject to the usual planning consents.

The full-sized Clearview wood burner in the living room has a back boiler, which can provide hot water to heat the insulated domestic hot water tank and radiators around the cottage.

There are twenty ground-mounted solar panels providing electricity to Mill Cottage and the Coach House. The surplus electricity is sold back to the electricity board. There is potential here for more panels and/or storage on site, which would then provide an opportunity to become energy self-sufficient. This opportunity would further benefit from a small-scale water turbine power source and well being installed and powered by the waterfall.

The newer kitchen and dining areas in the property benefit from electric underfloor heating, which brings additional warmth to this side of the house.

The original part of the cottage has thick stone walling typically found in this era. Where the walls are not so thick in this part of the property e.g. in the utility room/shower room, the walls benefit from inner wall insulation covered by plaster-boarding. Where there are cavity walls, these walls have UpToDate cavity wall insulation. The front door and most of the old windows have been replaced by Everest energy-efficient triple-glazing.

Mill Cottage benefits from Mains Electricity Liquid Propane Gas, Private Electric Solar, Private Water and a Septic Tank.
