Fine converted mill situated in a small village at the foot of the Angus Glens


The village of Lintrathen is situated 6 miles north west of Kiriremuir, at the foot of the Angus Glens, with Strathmore to the south.
Situated close to the boundary of Angus and Perthshire, the property enjoys the outdoor pursuits both counties have to offer. The angus Glens provide some of the finest hill walking in Eastern Scotland and ski-ing is available at Glenshee. Trout fishing can be taken on Lintrathen Loch, immediately to the north of the property. There are a number of golf courses in the area, including Alyth, Kirriemuir, Forfar and the championship course at Rosemount near Blairgowrie.
Local shopping can be found at Alyth and Kirriemuir with more extensive shopping and business services in Forfar and Blairgowrie. Perth and Dundee are both easily reached.
There is a primary school in Lintrathen, with secondary schooling at Kirriemuir and Blairgowrie. A school bus passes the house. Private schooling is available at Dundee High School.
Despite its situation at the foot of the hills, the Old Corn Mill is not remote. The A90 is easily reached and links Aberdeen with Dundee. The nearby A926 joins the A93 at Blairgowrie, which in turn links to Perth. At Perth it connects with the M90 to Edinburgh and the A9 west to Stirling and Glasgow. There are mainline railway stations at Perth and Dundee, the latter also providing a small airport with direct flights to London City.


The Old Cornmill is an attractive stone built house with a slate roof. Originally a working mill, it has a date stone of 1860. A key stone on the sluice has a date of 1708, which indicates earlier origins. Many of the original features remain, including some of the mill workings, set behind glass in the dining room. The house is set over three floors and faces east over the Melgam Water.

The property was converted in 1990, originally into two dwellings, comprising one upper floor cottage with the mid and lower floors beneath forming another. The two dwellings were linked in 2002. At that time Velux windows were installed to increase light into the house. Since 2009 a new multi fuel stove and radiators have been fitted.

The accommodation is comfortable and adaptable, with a good bathroom to bedroom ratio and fine reception rooms which are ideal for entertaining. There is a sitting room, with a balcony, on the entrance floor, and an open plan living room and dining room next to the kitchen on the lower floor and which links to the garden. The western elevation is one storey, while the eastern side, overlooking the river, is three storeys.

A path leads to the house. Stone steps lead up to partially glazed entrance doors at the upper level which open to a hallway with exposed beams, wall light and wooden floor. Off this is the sitting room which again has exposed beams, together with painted stone walls, two picture lights, cupboard, spotlights and a Velux roof light. There are stairs down to the mid level and a partially glazed door to a balcony overlooking the river. Also at the upper level are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Bedroom 1 has exposed beams incorporating part of the original mill workings, coombed ceiling, Velux roof light, low level windows and two built in cupboards (one shelved and one hanging). Bedroom 2 has exposed beams, coombed ceilings, Velux roof light, low level windows and fitted hanging cupboard. The bathroom has a bath with shower and tiled surround, washbasin, WC, wall light and a Velux roof light.

Wooden stairs lead down from the sitting room to the mid level with hanging and shelved cupboards, partially glazed door to the side of house, coat hooks, wall light and picture light. The master bedroom has a wall light, fitted cupboards with dressing table and an en suite bathroom with bath with shower, washbasin, WC, skylights, shelved cupboard, cupboard doors to the eaves space and wall mounted spotlights. Bathroom 2 has a bath with shower, washbasin, WC and two wall lights, while bedroom 4 has two wall lights and a fitted shelved and hanging cupboard.

Stairs lead down to the lower level, where there is an open plan living room / dining room. The living room has a multi fuel burning stove, five picture lights, and patio doors to the terrace. Two steps lead down to the dining area which has a wooden floor and a glass fronted display area housing parts of the original mill workings. The fully fitted kitchen has wooden wall and floor units with tiled work surfaces, sink, plumbing for dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, fitted Creda four ring hob with extractor hood, fitted Creda Colonial oven/grill, display cupboards, timber lined ceiling, tiled floor and a partially glazed door leading to steps down to the terrace.

The garden is at the rear of the house and leads down to the river. It includes a lightly wooded bank. Adjacent to the house is a stone paved terrace. Beyond is a grassed area with gravelled steps leading down to the river and a stone built store (former pump house). There is also a wood store and a new garden shed. Under the house is a store. A further door gives access to the former mill wheel. Steps lead up to the side of the house to a small garden in front with a gravelled path with flower borders and a parking area. Wooden gates give access from the road. In addition there is a further gravelled parking area adjacent to the road, outwith the garden itself.
