The property has the added benefit of 3 self catering holiday cottages, (totalling approximately 2102 square feet), earning the owners circa £30,000 per annum, all beautifully equipped and presented to a 4 star, gold VisitEngland rating.
Ardevora Mill is located at the end of a three-quarter mile long, unmade private lane. This unique home has just two neighbouring properties, all enjoying seclusion from each other without the feeling of complete isolation. Only by viewing internally can one fully capture the atmosphere and character and appreciate the overall quietness of Ardevora, which is still within such easy commuting distance of Truro, Falmouth and St Austell.
The Mill and cottages were converted around 6 years ago and our clients have, over the last few years, painstakingly equipped each to a very high standard and exceptional specification. Oozing character yet incorporating the modern with the traditional - high vaulted ceilings, oak doors, granite and red brick quoins to under-floor heating, central vacuum system and double-glazing. Wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and the creek can be enjoyed from many rooms.
