The Mill is a magnificent character property, with extensive grounds set within 2.5 acres, situated in a quiet location, just a short walk from the Cumbrian village of Winton.

Winton itself is a quiet village with a good community, 1.5 miles by road from Kirkby Stephen, or a short easy walk. It has an excellent pub, the Bay Horse, a village hall, green and a chapel.

Kirkby Stephen is an active market town just beyond the northern periphery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town is just ten miles from junction 38 of the M6 motorway and is well placed for Kendal, Penrith, Appleby and the Lake District. The scenic Settle to Carlisle Railway is on the doorstep and the Coast to Coast footpath runs through. Kirkby Stephen has highly regarded primary and grammar schools as well as a good range of shops, restaurants and pubs, church, chapel and doctor's surgery. There is still a weekly outdoor market and an agricultural auction mart.

This former mill was sympathetically converted some 30 years ago, retaining its charm, and highlighting many original features. The property retains the original mill spindles, cogs and working mill wheel, and there is original stonework and mill stones throughout the house.

To the ground floor of this large property, there is a sunroom, connecting the house and conservatory. The entrance hallway, has the original stone flagged floor, which leads into a beautiful spacious lounge in which the exposed beams and original wooden mill spindles are the centrepiece.
Furthermore, the ground floor offers a bespoke dining kitchen, with double doors leading onto the suntrap patio garden, a useful utility room, WC and study/bedroom 5. Additionally, there is a large versatile workshop which could easily be adapted to create extra living accommodation, this is also accessed integrally, via the lounge or separately via the attached garage. The workshop also houses the oil central heating boiler.

To the first floor, there is a large master bedroom with ensuite shower room, a further 3 double bedrooms, all with pleasant outlooks and beautiful pitch pine doors, and house bathroom. There is ample storage on the landing, along with original features such as the millstone and the curved wall around it.

Externally, the property is approached via private gates and a gravelled track, running alongside the tranquil beck. The property sits in extensive grounds, with lawned gardens and sun trap patio areas. There is a large detached garage, close to the entrance, along with ample parking. Additionally, there are 2 small paddocks, suitable for a small amount of sheep, goats or hens etc.
