August 23, 2012

This converted watermill for sale is situated within the Astwick Conservation Area close to the Hertfordshire/Bedfordshire border, one mile from the small town of Stotfold.

The watermill, which dates back to 1780 was converted by the current owners nearly 30 years ago and the site has been the location for a watermill dating back to the time of the Domesday book.

It is a 6 bedroom detached house with 4 reception rooms and 3 bathrooms. The property also benefits from a large garden, private parking (with a garage), outbuildings, tennis court and a river with double and single bank fishing rights.
The gardens, which are totally secluded, are divided by the wide millstream and predominantly laid to lawn. The gardens are a haven for wildlife enthusiasts to enjoy throughout the year with kingfishers, herons, swans, coots and owls viewed from both inside and outside the property. From the family room a sunny, sheltered patio overlooks the jetty, millstream and gardens beyond.

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.

Huf Haus For Sale: Helensburgh, Scotland

24 Jul
July 24, 2012

A 2 bedroom detached Huf Haus for sale in Helensburgh, Scotland. Built in 2007 this is one of the more affordable Huf homes I’ve seen. That’s partly because of the location, but also because it is towards the smaller end of the Huf haus range. In many ways I prefer the smaller range as it isn’t as in your face compared to the larger ones and it doesn’t suffer from the problems you sometimes see in larger homes of trying to fill large rooms with furniture.

The reception hallway, kitchen, dining room and drawing room are all open plan and the high quality kitchen was fitted by Stil Art, part of the Huf Haus group. It also incorporates a number of appliances by Gaggenau including oven and warming drawer, hob combining both electric and gas burners, powerful extractor hood and dishwasher.

The house sits quite centrally in extensive lawns which gently slope towards a stream known as the Glennan Burn.

It is freehold and on the market open to Offers in Excess of £495,000
