SITUATION

Set down a quiet lane to just two other properties, The Old Mill is set in a private position on the edge of the village of Rawridge overlooking the Otter Valley.

Rawridge lies within the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which together with its neighbour, Upottery, form an active rural community. Upottery has the Sidmouth Arms public house, parish church and highly regarded primary school and pre-school.

 

Good transport links give rapid access to Honiton, whilst Exeter, Taunton and the M5 motorway are about 30 minutes drive from the property.

 

Honiton benefits from a range of chain and independent shops, a choice of supermarkets, health centre and train station on the London Waterloo line. Secondary education includes the nearby outstanding Colyton Grammar School, and Wellington School. The city of Exeter caters for most needs including an international airport, mainline railway station on both the Paddington and Waterloo lines and a host of shopping, dining, cultural and leisure facilities.

DESCRIPTION

Converted from the working village mill, the property retains a great deal of character and charm, not least a large part of the former mill's gearing, grind stones, shutes and large loading doors.

The accommodation has a flexible arrangement over 3 floors with two stair cases rising to the first floor, providing an opportunity for a unique B&B/guest accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.

The heart of the home is the double height lounge with exposed stone fireplace, wood burning stove, vaulted ceilings and galleried area, beside which is the dining room and hall with exposed brick floor and features the old gearing and grind stones.

To the rear the dual aspect kitchen looks over the gardens centred on the oil-fired Rayburn. Steps lead down to snug/study and on to the utility room and WC.

Served by two stair cases, there are two double bedrooms on the first floor, the master with en suite, the other with private shower room. On the second floor, the third bedroom with en suite and study has a vaulted ceiling.

OUTSIDE

Set down a quiet lane, there is plenty of parking. A timber gate opens to a patio outside the kitchen providing an ideal spot to enjoy the wildlife across the meadows; the gardens are well stocked with a variety of colour and interest. To the rear is a storage shed. In all the property extends to 0.22 acres

CAR BARN
