Full description

Attractive Georgian house and exceptional mill conversion with over 4500 square feet of accommodation, located in picturesque countryside on the rural outskirts of Truro, yet easily accessible to the city.

Scawswater Mill is a fabulous country property, lovingly restored by our current owners. The location is so engaging with a pretty river on one border and wonderful gardens with the beautiful Idless Woods just along the valley offering fantastic trails for jogging or dog walks. The Mill has a wonderful historical aspect with a property having been on site since around the 1500s with the current Mill thought to date from around 1850.

The property is very intriguing with the Mill House at one side linked with a wonderful vaulted room leading into the Mill building itself. The Mill House is just packed full of charm with a flagstone slate hallway and wonderful fireplaces. The link building is currently set out as a living room with its own inglenook fireplace and a conservatory at the far end letting light flood in. Above the sitting room is a mezzanine that connects the bedrooms of the house and the Mill building. This is a fabulous space with everything on a grander scale, big windows, broad staircase and the whole top floor set out as one huge room.

The grounds are exceptionally pretty with a raised lawn to the front of the house and a driveway with parking for at least three cars in front of the Mill. The main gardens are to the rear with a wonderful woodland walk along the edge of the River Allen with its abundant wildlife.

Immediately to the rear of the property is a fabulous private lawned garden ideal for soaking up the sun with extensively planted borders and a sunken patio with steps leading to the side of the Mill. The heritage of the property is abundant with the remains of a Blowing House used in the production of tin. To the side of the Mill the stones that formed the structure for the old water wheel remain in place.

Location - Idless has for many years been the favoured location for those wanting to be very close to the amenities provided by Truro but favouring country life. The hamlet is very compact, nestled in the valley along the edge of the River Allen, which is one of the three rivers by which Truro is defined (Truro in Cornish means three rivers). Idless is much favoured for its wonderful woodland, ideal for walks and jogging.

Truro has an extensive range of shops and facilities, including many sports clubs, two golf courses and the county’s leading business facilities. A short distance away, Malpas is a favoured local spot to keep a boat with Mylor 11 miles away offering fabulous facilities for the keen sailor.
