The Old Sawmill, comprising the main house, two cottages, a bakery and various outbuildings, started life as ancillary working and storage facilities to the Middleton Estate for the former sawmill operations. These traditional buildings/barns have been sympathetically and creatively renovated, retaining many original features wherever possible, to provide individual units of immense character and charm. The contemporary interiors have been designed to suit the needs of a modern lifestyle, whilst successfully blending with rustic features of the period. In addition to providing a sensational family home, The Old Sawmill boasts two further properties, Sawmill Cottage and The Old Workshop. Sawmill Cottage has been successfully run as a holiday rental business, thereby offering income potential (further details available upon request). Main House: A detached property offering in excess of 3,853 sq. ft. of bright and airy accommodation, equally suited to both family living and entertaining. The sense of light and space is cleverly enhanced by glass doors and high ceilings. Of particular note is the stunning open-plan kitchen/breakfast/family room, with a sleek fitted kitchen, ample space for informal dining, and a seating area. This room boasts an impressive beamed vaulted ceiling, bi-fold doors opening out to the courtyard garden and French doors that open onto a footbridge crossing over the charming mill stream to a decked seating area. In the drawing room, a log burning stove creates a focal point and there is a good size dining room, perfect for formal dining occasions. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor, all with en suite facilities, whilst in the turret, there is a master bedroom suite comprising a bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. The accommodation further comprises a utility room with its own outside access, a laundry room and a cloakroom. The Bakery: The Bakery is an impressive building in its own right. It was created by the owners to be used as a bakery, although it offers the potential for a wide variety of additional options. The accommodation briefly comprises two spacious kitchen areas, a useful office and a cloakroom. There is also an adjoining store room. The main house and bakery form three sides of a pretty courtyard and garden. This garden is the essence of this property and has been created with a huge amount of love and respect for what it all once was. The north side of the courtyard is formed by an attractive range of traditional outbuildings, known as the Tool Sheds. These buildings have potential for further development, subject to the necessary planning consents. Sawmill Cottage: An excellent and complimentary asset to the main house, Sawmill Cottage is an attached single-storey cottage, with well-planned internal accommodation offering three bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, in addition to a family bathroom. The kitchen/breakfast/family room, with its beamed vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove, offers multifunctional living space with a beautifully fitted kitchen area, a breakfast area with ample space for a breakfast table, and a seating area with double doors opening outside. A good income is provided by Sawmill Cottage, though it can be used as a permanent dwelling if required.It has an area of garden and suitable area for parking cars.

It is arranged to provide a vaulted kitchen/breakfast/family room with a wood burning stove, a bedroom with an en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Excellent attention to detail has been employed in the conversion, with pretty architectural features and elements to retain interest and character throughout.
