Modernised traditional cottage near a river

A pretty, modernised four bedroom stone cottage with four acres and 250m of river frontage is now on the market.

Mill Cottage, presented by Strutt & Parker, is an attractive cottage, which has been sympathetically modernised and extended over the last 11 years and now features flexible and light accommodation.

The cosy sitting room has a wood-burning stove and oak flooring with doors leading into the spacious, open-plan kitchen and dining room.

The kitchen has built-in appliances including a large Everhot cooker, integrated shelving, a kitchen island and roof lights. The area includes a light and airy dining area with access through double doors to the garden and access to the adjacent boot room.

On the ground floor there is a generously proportioned master bedroom with a separate dressing room and en suite.

Additionally, there is a further bedroom and shower room with its own access.

There is a separate utility room which can also be accessed separately. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with feature wood-panelled ceilings, built-in wardrobes and a bathroom.

Outside The property is approached via a stone driveway and has a parking area and lawns. The enclosed garden at the rear is laid mainly to lawn with some mature planting, a wood store and traditional stone wall.

There is an attractive wooden summer house towards the rear of the garden and access leading to four acres of land serviced with mains water taps, hen run, enclosed area with raised beds, with separate water supply and orchard.

Additionally, there are three sheds with electricity. Mill Cottage benefits from approximately 250m of river frontage to the River Ardle from which trout and salmon have been landed by the current owners.
