Property Inspiration: Bogbain Mill in Lochussie, Dingwall

19 Nov
November 19, 2012

Bogbain Mill was a project that incorporates the ruins of a former mill. Combining the old walls with the new constructions and insertions in the fabric, it is intended to clearly articulate the modern additions set against the solid stone walls of the mill. The internal courtyard has become the focus for the house, and all internal rooms on the ground floor have a direct relationship into this enjoyable south-facing garden overlooking a burn. A new bedroom tower allows views over the wider surrounding landscape.

The original stone mill was narrow, primarily L-shaped in plan, parallel to the road and then running back perpendicular behind. At the back, the land drops away down to a burn that would have powered the original granite waterwheel from a millpond, both now lost. The client also managed to acquire a small wood beyond the burn with an outlook that could securely become part of the brief. The architect has responded thoughtfully by designing a number of simple timber pavilions and additions to the ‘found’ walls, threaded through cross-axes and arranged in unfolding layers of inhabitation over the ruins to create a series of inside and outside courtyard spaces.

Converted Corn Mill for Sale: Lupton, Cumbria

14 Aug
August 14, 2012

A Grade II Listed (I’m not going out of my way to find Grad II listed buildings) converted corn mill for sale overlooking mill pond with a river running through the gardens.

It was bought lying derelict by the current owners and carefully rebuilt and converted. Now ready for some cosmetic updating this is an opportunity to put your own stamp on a piece of history and  create a beautiful house in a beautiful setting.

Outside there’s a double garage with bathing platform (?) attached to the back as it borders an impressive 0.39 acre mill pond. At the far end is a boathouse and summer house. The gardens  offer a mix of formal and informal, lightly wooded in places with ‘Lupton Beck’ forming the southern border. In all, it has around 1.35 acres.

There is a cobbled parking area to the front of the property, garden with mill stone with Lupton Mill carving. Double garage (6.03m x 5.9m [19’9 x 19’5]) to the rear over the mill pond with a small wooden jetty. A pathway borders the pond and leads to a lightly wooded area with boathouse, store and summerhouse. Lower flagged terrace and large level lawn with mature trees, rear courtyard with log store. Finally a waterfall flowing into ‘Lupton Beck’ which forms the southerly boundary.

The property has a guide price of £725,000, which considering it needs ‘cosmetic updating’ seems a little much to me. However, you can view it here.

Converted Windmill for Sale: Grays, Essex

18 Jul
July 18, 2012

A majestic listed 5 bedroom steam mill / windmill for sale.

Thought to date from 1674, Baker Street Mills is a magnificent hexagonal windmill. One of the last three examples of a smock mill remaining in Essex, which is now Listed grade II. It was an operating windmill until 1912 from when it fell into disrepair and then restored into a private residence in 1981. The current vendors completed their restoration of the windmill in 1999 including the renovation of the sails which are fully operational.

The windmill itself has been converted into fabulous accommodation which is complemented by the converted Victorian steam mill. Much of the original workings of both mills have been retained and incorporated within the accommodation giving a real feel of the past and heritage of this magnificent residence.

The Mill stands within grounds extending to about 10 acres, accessed via electrically operated gates. The property also features a double garage, pool house and what every pool house needs, a swimming pool.

Asking price of £1,500,000
