The property is a most impressive Grade II Listed former water mill having been completely renovated by the current vendors over their ownership in the last 18 years to provide a most appealing property in todays market. The property has been successfully rented out as a holiday let for the last few years () and would make a superb family home set within its own grounds and combining modern amenities such as wooden double glazed windows, mains electricity, exposed ceiling beams and renovated workings of the former mill. The total seclusion of the property and its adjoining pasture paddocks, which lead to the banks of the River Ottery with single bank fishing, means the agents have no hesitation in recommending early inspection of the property to fully appreciate its unique setting.
