Steward Mill was said to have been built in 1711 as a working mill and in 1973 it was converted into a large family home with double glazing throughout. Currently a new slate roof is being installed. The ground floor accommodation comprises a bright glazed entrance porch leading into the hallway with a wood burner, there is a kitchen breakfast room with views across the garden, a separate dining room and a very large sitting room with another wood burning stove. The first floor has two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a very large jacuzzi bath in the centre of the room. There is also access to the patio balcony with views across the surrounding countryside. On the second floor there are three further bedrooms, another shower room and access to the large loft space. The land extends to approximately 0.7 acres which comprise a beautiful garden to the rear of the property and a sizeable mill pond which services the water works and mill wheel. This property's central heating is fired by an air source heat pump and has PV panels which offset the running costs of the pump. There is parking for plenty of cars and and a good sized double garage with a storage loft on the first floor. Fowlers very strongly recommend viewing this property to appreciate everything it has to offer.
