An exceptional rural property set in a secluded position surrounded by 14.1 acres

Camilty Mill is a charming property set in magnificent private grounds extending to approximately 14.1 acres. At the heart of the grounds is the house which has evolved over the years and has accommodation extending to approximately 3,286 square feet arranged principally over the ground floor. The property is in need of extensive modernisation but provides an ideal opportunity to create an exceptional, private family home in a magnificent secluded setting.

The house is entered via a substantial glazed hall. This gives access to the dining room, kitchen and drawing room. The kitchen has a good range of wall and floor units and both the dining room and the drawing room are well proportioned and ideal for entertaining. Accessed from a central reception area is a family room and a spiral staircase leads to a large first floor office, with far reaching views out over the grounds. There are five bedrooms, two with en suite facilities, the others being served by a shower room.

This property has 14.1 acres of land.

Outside

Camilty Mill is set within wonderful grounds which extend to approximately 14.1 acres. The immediate garden is principally laid to grass, but at the back of the house there is a decked terrace and a pond which is surrounded by water loving plants. The property is well set up for equestrian use, with a stable block, a large paddock and a ménage, all within a short walk of the house. The eastern boundary of the property is defined by the Linhouse Water. Walks can be enjoyed along the river banks and situated next to a weir, overlooking a waterfall, is a summer house. Close to the river are the ruins of former gun powder works and the remnants of a water garden can also be found. The woods at Camilty Mill are a mix of mature broadleaf and evergreen trees which provide a haven for wildlife.
