The Main section of the house was constructed about 24 years ago from the dressed granite from the old Mill House. The roof is constructed with natural mountain slate of beautiful colours. This section has two bedrooms, a large lounge/dining room, kitchen and bathroom.
The smaller part was constructed some 11 years ago and has a slate roof and cladding. It comprises a further two large bedrooms, a small study, shower room and a kitchenette/utility room. The house could therefore be divided for subletting if required with minimal modification. The house is c130m2 - c1400 sq ft. The land comprises 3180m2 (approx. 0.78 acres). It has an island formed by the river and the mill stream of c 50% of the land.
The old mill is constructed of huge granite stones, as is the mill stream bank. The pool below used to be a 'laverie' for washing clothes. The small bridge links the island. The mill stream flows under the bridge leading on to the' island'. The river above the weir is OK for bathing and from the 'mainland' garden the view is up the tree lined river. Ragondin-like a coypu- have been seen here, and birds including Heron, Egret and Kingfishers visit.
