Kerslake Mill offers spacious and versatile living accommodation spread over 3 floors together with a detached one bedroom cottage currently used to house a family member but offers fantastic income potential. The generous Mill is entered into a wonderfully light and airy reception hall with staircases both rising and descending to accommodation on all floors. From the reception hall access is provided into the kitchen / breakfast room which has been fitted with a comprehensive range of kitchen units and complimented with all the modern appliances one would expect. This room is of great proportions and provides enough space to site a large dining room table and chairs. The character and charm are evident in this room due to the large and unusually shaped skirting boards and beamed ceiling.
Moving on into the next room is the equally generous sitting room which features a wood burning stove which sits in one corner and is the focal point of this room. Within this room again are beamed ceilings and hard wood flooring together with a door opening to a balcony which provides exquisite views over the mill pond and surrounding gardens. Completing the accommodation on this floor is a study / bedroom 5, coats cupboard and shower room. The vendor is currently using bedroom 5 as a study but is large enough to be a library, snug or computer room should someone wish to work from home this would be the perfect place to set up an office. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with one of the bedrooms providing en suite bathroom facilities and a walk in wardrobe / dressing room. Both of these rooms enjoy fantastic outlooks across the gardens and rolling countryside beyond.
On the lower ground floor there are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate utility room. There is also internal access to the integral double garage and workshop which is perfect for those buyers wishing to drive into their own home and have internal access into the property without the need to go back outside and to the main front door. Set to one side of the Mill is a detached one bedroom cottage currently occupied by an extended family member. This wonderful cottage enjoys the same spacious nature of the main property with the main sitting room and kitchen both measuring approx. 20ft in length. There are no restrictions on this cottage in terms of occupancy and therefore any potential buyer could look at using this cottage for exactly the same purposes as the current vendors, use it as a holiday let or find a tenant under a short hold agreement. The options of this cottage make this property highly appealing.
The Mill is approached via a long private driveway which meanders through the gardens and grounds and arrives in a central courtyard in front of the double garages. The gardens surround the property and are mainly laid to lawn with a generous array of plants, shrubs and trees dotted throughout. The neighbouring land is owned by the National Trust and provides a wonderful back drop. There is a central mill pond to the eastern side of the Mill visible from many internal rooms which offer a wonderful outlook and a great attraction for wildlife. In total the gardens and grounds extend to 1.4 acres.
The property is privately positioned in open countryside, approximately 1km off the south Cornish coast and the waters of Portwrinkle and Whitsand Bay. The village of Crafthole has a community shop and 2 popular public house/restaurants. The old fishing village of Portwrinkle, with its harbour and two small but popular beaches, is home to the Whitsand Bay Hotel and Golf Club and lies on the beautiful South West Coast Path, just to the west of Plymouth and east of Looe, in an extraordinarily unspoilt coastal region adjacent to the Rame Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The St Mellion International Golf Resort lies approximately 14 miles distant.
The village of Antony (3 miles) has a popular primary school and is also within the catchment area of the two Plymouth grammar schools with their excellent reputation and also the Plymouth College Public School. There are a wide range of facilities at Torpoint with its sailing club and deep water moorings. The town of Saltash has a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts and the city of Plymouth with its historic Barbican and beautiful waterfront lies within commuting distance. The main line railway station can be accessed at St Germans (4 miles) providing an excellent commuting facility (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours).
