About this property

  • Millhouse is a characterful Grade C Listed building dating from about 1805. In the days when Kinnesswood was a village of crofters and weavers the Millhouse was a busy loom shop. Today it is a much-loved family home arranged over three storeys. The house is situated opposite a well-tended memorial garden created by the village for Michael Bruce who was an 18th-century poet known as the ‘Gentle Poet of Loch Leven'.

    A flight of stone steps from The Cobbles leads to the main entrance of Millhouse, which is on the first floor. The house is quirky and full of character. Particular features include the garden room, which was added to the house in 2000 along with a utility room and principal bedroom. This lower sitting room is a light and lofty room, which is partially vaulted and has French windows opening to a south facing terrace. From here there is a fabulous view of Loch Leven. The upper sitting room at Millhouse is characterised by astragal windows, and an exposed stone wall with a wood burning stove, giving it a welcoming and cosy atmosphere. The kitchen has room for a dining table and pretty windows framing views of Bishop Hill, which rises up behind the house. A galleried landing, on the second floor, leads to the principal bedroom at the top of the house and there are four other bedrooms in total, one of which is used as a study. Two of the bedrooms are situated on the ground floor where there is a charming front door at street level. The house also has an office, shower room, bathroom and utility room.

    There is off street parking for two cars.

    Garden and grounds
    A delightful garden has been landscaped around the house. To the rear an L-shaped area of lawn is partially enclosed with copper-beech hedging and has a pretty burn running down one side. Herbaceous beds create wonderful colour in the spring and summer. On the south side of the house is a paved terrace, which is ideal for sitting out in the summer and enjoying the glorious views.
