About the Property
The Old Mill which is grade II listed, dates back to the 18th century and is located approximately one mile from Milfield village. The property is in a quiet and rural setting, with stunning views of the surrounding countryside towards the Cheviot Hills and has tremendous character and charm, with many of the original features being retained, including the Mill Race, beamed ceilings, interior doors and stripped flooring. The property is set within informal gardens and grounds which extend to approximately ¾ acre of lawns with shrubberies and flowerbeds, a large parking area, two car ports, a storage shed and a workshop.
The present owners have recently upgraded and modernised the property to a very high standard, creating a beautifully presented house, offering spacious and flexible living accommodation which makes a stunning family home. The property is entered into a spacious entrance hall with an attractive staircase, which leads to a large open plan kitchen/dining area/family room which has recently had a new top of the range kitchen fitted with appliances. There is a utility room, cloakroom and an office which could be used as an extra bedroom if required. Also on the ground floor is a large lounge with an attractive inglenook fireplace with a log burning stove and French doors to the rear giving access to a veranda taking advantage of the countryside views. On the first floor is a toilet, six double bedrooms, two family bathrooms which have recently been upgraded and the main bedroom has an en-suite shower room. Excellent storage throughout.
The house has a new oil fired central heating system.
We would highly recommend viewing of this fabulous property.
