About this property

  • Biel Mill Cottage is an attractive stone built property which is ready for full modernisation. The charming detached cottage with traditional pan tiled roof has a private drive and is tucked behind a private hedge. The accommodation is all on a single level set off a wide central hallway with access directly onto a private wraparound garden bordering an idyllic woodland setting.

    Internally, the front door leads into a wide light-filled entrance hallway with access to the triple aspect kitchen and dining area, currently fitted in a U-shape with a mix of cabinets and workspaces. The kitchen flows back into the central corridor from where there is a doorway leading out to the west facing lawn and exterior laundry. There are three double bedrooms, all including built-in storage and a three piece family bathroom with shower over bath. Additional storage lines the corridor leading into the large triple aspect sitting room making the most of the garden views. Steps lead off the sitting room into the south facing sunroom which on a bright day is flooded with light and warmth. It overlooks the paved walled garden which has fruit trees and mature plants attracting the local wildlife.

    Linked to the house along the walled garden lies the double height stone built garage and potting store. The garage constructed in the same pink stone of the cottage and pan tile roof, offers fantastic additional space or a potential development opportunity subject to relevant planning conditions.
