Melangoose Mill, near Helson, Cornwall has family accommodation and a lake in this former vineyard setting

Melangoose Mill is a beautiful, historic mill house offering very flexible accommodation in two historic buildings in a splendid location just a mile-and-a-half outside Helston in Cornwall.

The house and its adjoining stone barn have been converted over the years and currently comprise two discrete buildings which could be turned into one family house: there are seven bedrooms in total.

Reception rooms include the sitting room and dining room (which are part-open-plan) and a study. The kitchen has its own larder and a useful utility room nearby.  Interiors may need some updating, but this is the bones of a very good house in an exceptional position.

The property enjoys a south-facing position in an idyllic sheltered Cornish valley and includes a majestic six acres of gardens and grounds, including woodland, the old stone mill and leat, a picturesque duck pond, two fields and a beautiful lake. The land was also once used as a successful vineyard.

The guide price is £675,000. For further information please contact Lillicrap Chilcott on 01872 395 949 or visit http://countrylife.onthemarket.com.
