A stylish five-bedroom home set in an idyllic 6 acres of gardens and waterside woodland

Built in 1993 on the site of an old farm steading, The Old Mill Dairy is a delightful property with stone elevations that blend perfectly with the idyllic rural surroundings, while inside the accommodation is light, airy and presented with a sense of contemporary style.

The two main reception rooms, the drawing room and dining room, are connected in a semi open-plan layout, providing a splendid 37ft living space. The drawing room features a Hadstone fireplace with woodburning stove. The conservatory welcomes plenty of natural light with south and west-facing aspects, while the large bespoke kitchen has sleek modern high gloss units, breakfast bar, integrated Siemens and Bosch appliances and space for a breakfast table and seating area. Utility room with outside access is also a useful boot and cloak room.

There is also a comfortable fitted study, which could be used as a 5th bedroom if required.

There are three double bedrooms of similar proportions on the ground floor – one of which has an en suite with Raindance ceiling shower as well as a family bathroom. The generous principal bedroom is on the first floor, with its dressing room and en suite bathroom, which has a separate walk-in shower unit.

This property has 6.5 acres of land.


The property is approached through electric hardwood gates via a tarmac driveway, which leads to the two detached garages, providing covered parking and extensive storage or workshop space. The garden to the front, sides and rear of the property has rolling lawns, paved terracing, established shrubs and hedgerow, and a variety of mature trees all dropping down to a peaceful spot beside the Hart Burn, which gently flows through a bluebell woodland area which is a great place to walk and provides plenty of fuel for the woodburner. In all the property extends to around 6.24 acres.

Agents note The flood risk to the house and garages is ‘Very Low Risk’ which means that each year there is a less than 0.1% chance of flooding. (Source: gov.uk)
