A property that certainly isn't run of the mill

mill house with mill pond for sale
Lupton Mill, Lupton, Near Kirkby Lonsdale, LA6 2PW
As the old saying goes, location, location, location. And with the earliest record of this Grade II Listed corn mill being in 1311, it's fair to say our forebears had their pick of the best spots.
The mill was in operation until 1968 and lay derelict until it was purchased in 1985 by the current owners (an architect and his wife). It was then lovingly and painstakingly rebuilt and renovated to create the interesting and beautiful property it is today.
This four bedroom family home boasts spacious accommodation over three floors. It retains a wealth of original features including exposed roof timbers, exposed stonework, mill wheel, the mill pond and an impressive double height entrance hall which houses the original mill stones and wooden cogs.
Outside, the mature and tranquil gardens extend to approximately 1.35 acres with 0.41 acres more available if required. Lupton Beck runs through the gardens feeding the 0.39 acre mill pond and there is a boathouse, separate
summer house and even a bathing platform (attached to the back of the double garage) for long summer days messing around in the water.
Lupton Mill is a unique property enjoying a stunning setting in a highly accessible but tranquil location and would make an ideal home for someone wanting a slice of our industrial heritage.
