The lower ground floor currently provides a large open plan garage and workshop/store area linking through to a further garden store with separate external access but could, subject to obtaining the necessary approvals, be converted to provide additional living accommodation if required. Existing planning permission which expired recently for additional living space and large glass conservatory overlooking the river.

The property is approached via a gravel driveway which opens out to provide ample parking area and access to the garage. To the rear there is a formally landscaped Mediterranean style patio garden which uses the original mill race as a feature. The gardens extend along the river either side of the mill race and offer a series of lawns with decorative borders, specimen trees and bushes. Trout and salmon parr are known to ‘rest’ in the original wheel well.
