The sale of Freshford Mill offers a unique opportunity to purchase an exciting prime development site on which a substantial amount of work has already been completed. The development comprises 21 residential units which are aimed towards the upper end of residential property market and are a mixture of the conversion of attractive stone buildings and new builds. This  brown field site extends in total to some 1.93 hectares (about 4.77 acres) and we understand a substantial amount of ground work has been undertaken in a form of flood mitigation and remediation.
  
The development is set in a rural and picturesque location on the River Frome with a number of the units enjoying westerly views over the weir. Freshford is a highly desirable village set in countryside approximately 5 miles south-east of the Georgian city of Bath and 3 miles west of Bradford-on-Avon. This is considered to be much sought after residential location in a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the advantage of a village Railway Station.
  
Presently the various units range from near completion to part built and in some cases extensive structural work is still required.
  
The 21 units are split between existing buildings being converted and five new build properties. The breakdown of the units and their respective floor areas is:
