Kitchen, open to full pitch with wall and base storage units, solid oak work tops, De Longhi range with 5 burners and large oven/grill, space for two fridges and freezer, solid oak floor, a feature has been created by glazing the original ventilation tower. A galleried landing leads to the impressive Reception Room which is open to full pitch with natural stone walls and exposed beams, a solid fuel stove stands on an original grinding wheel with a bespoke rounded fire guard. Some of the original winding gear also lends to the atmosphere of the room. Patio doors lead to a modern glass and steel balcony offering wonderful views over Loch Tay and the surrounding countryside.
On the Lower Ground Floor there is a stone flagged Hall with an under stair cupboard and Bedroom 1 with an oak floor. Steps lead down to the Lower Hall and a corridor with an engineered wood floor and store cupboard leads to a Shower Room and Bathroom and 3 further bedrooms all with engineered wood floors and deep silled south facing windows.
