Low Mill Farm House Forms part of a small rural hamlet which was once a compact industrial mill complex producing sail cloth and rope for the prospering port of Whitehaven in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Following the decline in the mid nineteenth century of Whitehaven as a port, the property became a farm house which more recently as been fully renovated and modernised to provide a home of considerable character and charm, offering well presented and nicely proportioned accommodation. Low Mill sits between the western fells of the Lake District National Park and the coast of west Cumbria affording easy access to a rich diversity of natural landscapes. The high fells of the central Lake District, and the less well known lakes of Wast Water and Ennerdale Water, together with deep valleys, fast flowing rivers and streams, forests and open fells, through to the famous cliffs and coast around St Bees, are all within a radius of just a few miles. Low Mill is within 3 miles of Sellafield, the area’s major employer, and approximately 6 miles south of Whitehaven town centre offering a full range of amenities, whilst the attractive Georgian market town of Egremont is less than 2 miles to the north. The hamlet of Low Mill itself occupies a quiet rural position nestling alongside the River Ehen which flows from Ennerdale Water to the northeast and reaches the sea at Sellafield to the south.
Low Mill Farm House is presented to a good standard throughout, the accommodation briefly comprising: On the ground floor attractive reception hall, 3 reception rooms plus kitchen, rear entrance lobby and walk-in larder/utility room, and on the first floor 3 double bedrooms, bathroom plus additional separate WC. The accommodation benefits from gas central heating and upvc double glazing throughout. An outstanding feature of this property are the large landscaped gardens divided in to 3 distinct areas by impressive walls constructed in local stone.
