The Corn Mill was built in the 1800's and converted into 12 individual apartments in 2005.

This unique property is ideal for first time buyers looking for a 'ready to move into' fully equipped starter home, as well as those wishing to downsize to a low maintenance residence with plenty of charm. It also presents a fabulous opportunity for investors seeking a buy-to-let property - apartments in the Corn Mill are routinely rented out on long-term lets.
THINGS THE HOMEOWNER LOVES ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
* THE ROOF GARDEN REALLY HAS THE 'WOW FACTOR': The riverside views are fantastic and it's a perfect space for relaxing, dining and entertaining but it also has some great practical uses due to its large size (e.g. storage and airing clothes). It's not just any old patio... it's an outside living room.
* LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: The Corn Mill is located in the heart of the village, everything you need is on your doorstep, but as the apartment is at the rear of the property you feel like you’re miles away, no horrible traffic noise - just the relaxing sound of water.
* A GREAT MIX OF THE OLD AND THE NEW: The historic Grade II listed building is full of charm and character, while the apartment is modern, light and contemporary. Perfect combination!
