Converted Scottish mill for sale

The Old Mill is a magnificent A-listed, converted mill house thought to date from the mid-18th century, and located on the banks of the River Tyne in East Lothian.

The property still retains a number of original features from the mill itself including the mill stones, working gears, and the water wheel itself, which is attached to the house on the south elevation.

Accommodation is reached by a flight of external stone stairs, and inside the sitting room offers magnificent views of the river and access out to a decked area, as well as steps leading up to the brand new kitchen which was installed in 2013.

Two double bedrooms lie off a corridor from the sitting room, as do a bathroom with a Jacuzzi-style bath which completes this level. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms (one en-suite) while the other has an en-suite shower room. The lower ground floor would be ideal as a games room; presently it has a tiled floor and the gearing mechanisms for the old mill are visible through a glass screen.
