"The property was formerly the main corn mill for Lamplugh until the early 1900s when water mills were replaced by steam powered mills. The current house was formed from three buildings, a 17th century watermill, which has the 1647 date stone, the adjacent Miller's cottage and a sandstone barn which was used as a wheelwright and carpenter's workshop until the 1950s.

"The property, which offers flexible accommodation, sits in a semi-rural location within delightful gardens that offer stunning views towards Blake Fell and Knock Murton and through which Wisenholme Beck flows.

"Mill House, which is presented in excellent order, also offers potential for further development of the range of outbuildings should additional accommodation be required.

"This historic property also benefits from a modern 45kW wood pellet boiler using renewable sources to provide central heating, hot water and the convenience of remote or app-based control.
