We have pleasure in offering for sale this spacious detached property which historically was a water powered corn mill. Lower Mill has since been converted into an impressive and highly versatile family property extending to approximately 3400 square feet. Its split level design purposely takes advantage of the spectacular and picturesque views across waterfront. The house is warmed by oil fired central heating and has solar panels to boost the hot water system. Comprising entrance hall with stairs to first floor with drawing room, dining room, kitchen, family room, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and bathroom. The ground floor provides a guest bedroom with en-suite, two further bedrooms, sitting room, utility room and cloakroom. There is also an integral three car garage. The detached property adjacent known as 'Milcot' offers a rare opportunity for a dependent relative or teenager to reside. With entrance hall, living room, kitchen, shower room, whilst to the first floor there is one double bedroom and bathroom. Planning consent has been granted for a second bedroom to be built above the kitchen. There is also adjoining double garage.
The property is delightfully situated in a rural location surrounded by magnificent open countryside within a few minutes dive of Delamere Forest. Cuddington village is approximately one mile away and provides local shops for daily needs, doctor and dental surgeries, library and community playing fields with tennis club. Whilst a lovely retreat, this area will be of great appeal to the business traveller as the A49 can be accessed in less than a minutes' drive and connects to the motorway network from where many major commercial centres can be reached throughout the North West.
