Full Details

ABOUT THE OLD GRAIN MILL This unique and imposing property stands proudly in the centre of the sought after village of Netherthong in a small cluster of individual houses. The building is of traditional stone built construction and is believed to date back to 1840s, originally conceived as a grain mill. It has at other points been a village shop and also a post office from 1912 for approximately 100 years. A few years later the property was sold to our clients.

The property has provided a comfortable home for our clients and their family at a point when they needed space and flexibility of accommodation - they now intend to downsize. They have also carried out some comprehensive updating and redesigning of some of the layout but it has lost none of its unique character. The size and layout of the property means that it could be utilised in a number of ways, using rooms for different purposes and will appeal to buyers who need a studio / workshop space where they can work from home.

It is entered through a ground floor entrance with large wooden doors into a hall. To one side of the hall is the former post office area which is currently used as a yoga studio. To the other side of the hall is a large cloak room area with bench seating, storage and coat hooks. From the hall is the first of 3 different living spaces. Off of the sitting room there is a utility room and downstairs wc. Stairs from the living area lead down to the large open cellar.

On the first floor there is a kitchen with modern units and a walk in pantry store. Glazed double doors open into a large dining / living room which features a series of windows which flood the room with natural light. Off the dining room there is a walk through lobby area which has a bank of full height built in storage cupboards. From here a further door leads into the house bathroom.

The second floor hosts the main living room area which stretches from the front to the rear of the building and features a log burning stove, partially exposed roof trusses and a historic winch and pulley system which dates back to when the property was a grain mill. A door and lobby leads to 2 double bedrooms. There are also 2 further double bedrooms within the loft space that are each accessed from their own staircases.

Externally the property features a low maintenance garden / parking area at the rear. It fronts onto Giles Street, a narrow lane within the old part of the village centre. Netherthong itself is one of the Holme Valley's most admired villages and is surrounded by picturesque countryside. It benefits from good amenities, 2 pubs, the village shop and also the Cider Press Café.
