HISTORIC MILL IN APPROXIMATELY 8.86 ACRES WITH NO IMMEDIATE NEIGHBOURS OFFERING PRIVATE RIVER FRONTAGE WITH FISHING, DARK SKIES & TRANQUILITY.

The perfect Idyllic Scottish Rural Retreat.

The Mill at Mangerton is a superb example of a successful conversion from a 17th century mill into a comfortable and very private 21st century detached family home.

Positioned in 8.86 acres of private land with superb rural views, the mill also enjoys a generous length of river frontage on the Liddel Water with trout fishing rights.

The mill is thought to have been partially built using stone from the nearby Mangerton Tower, a clan Armstrong fortified tower dating back to the Border Reivers days.

The property enjoys the peace and quiet that many buyers seek with wonderful country and riverbank walks from the property. The current owners found the derelict mill twelve years ago and have lovingly restored it over that time to create a truly unique and characterful family home.

The property is approached along a private country lane and through a five-bar timber gate onto the gravelled drive. There is plenty of parking available and an integral garage.

Accommodation Comprises:

Internal: Hall with shower room/WC, walk-in larder, boiler room, farmhouse kitchen, sitting room, dining room, galleried reception/bedroom 4, inner hall with walk-in storage cupboard, master bedroom with en-suite, two further double bedrooms, family bathroom.

Outside: Private gravelled drive with ample parking, landscaped gardens and grounds, integral garage, poly tunnel, two large fields with river frontage, fine far-reaching views. In total approximately 8.86 acres.

Situation:
The Mill is positioned in a lovely rural setting close to the village of Newcastleton with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside. The property enjoys a peaceful setting with a high degree of privacy and comes with gardens, grounds and land extending to approximately 8.86 acres which include two fields alongside the banks of the Liddel Water.

The property offers the best of both worlds, being in a very private rural position with no immediate neighbours, but not isolated, with the local village of Newcastleton just a few minutes’ drive away and easy access to Carlisle and the M6. Newcastleton has a great community feel and offers a range of shops, eateries and amenities including a primary school, two hotels, a butcher, bank, food stores and pub. There is an annual music festival and craft fayre and the area attracts many tourists looking to mountain bike and walk the local hills.

The Scottish Borders offers a quality of life that is second to none and in an area of 1800 square miles there is certainly plenty of space to enjoy our beautiful unspoilt countryside and individual towns. Home to world class activities and attractions, it’s no wonder that the area is so popular with visitors who come here to enjoy mountain biking at Glentress, salmon fishing on the Tweed, walking in our hills and forests or diving off the Berwickshire coast.

The area is also known for its’ spectacular Common Ridings, when whole communities come together to celebrate each town’s individual heritage and to cheer on hundreds of horses and riders every summer. The Borders is also a heartland of rugby in Scotland, with the names of our local towns being synonymous with the game and of course Melrose being the original home of rugby sevens.

From our historic towns to rural villages, wherever you go you will be struck by the warmth of the welcome in our communities and the real pride people have in living in this wonderful part of the world. With good transport links, including the newly opened Borders Railway with regular services to Edinburgh, an excellent education system and stunning countryside, a move to the Scottish Borders really could be the best move of your life.
