Award winning Mill, last chance to buy

It’s a winning combination when you have a specialist developer, with an eye for detail and the tenacity to go the extra mile for clients, who’s passion is to seek out buildings in desirable locations with potential to be restored and become functional again.  

Poppy Developments and The Mill at Harbertonford, is one such combination. Voted 4th in ‘Ten of the best new homes in Britain right now 2017’ by Country and Town House Magazine. An accolade to prove it certainly is not ‘run of the mill’. 

The buyers of this Grade II listed former Woollen Mill obviously agree with them, as there is only one unit left to purchase.

The commanding building, dating back to 1769, has been sympathetically converted into 7 luxury three, four and five bedroom town houses offering a contemporary and truly unique place to live. Overlooking the River Harbourne and set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

No. 1 The Mill is a clever combination of stylish design, harmonising perfectly with the original character features and materials of this fascinating industrial building.

Martha Tabb, from selling agent Marchand Petit, commented: “One of the main reasons The Mill town houses have sold so well, are the on-trend interiors. The steel stanchions and wonderful original old beams raise the bar, on what is already a very enviable specification.”

The finishes include individually designed kitchens with integrated Bosch appliances, sleek porcelain tiles with Villeroy and Boch sanitary wear in the bathrooms and oak wooden doors. Externally all The Mill houses benefit from lawned southerly facing gardens, with sun terraces, overlooking the Harbourne River and parking for two cars.  

No. 1 The Mill is on the market for £475,000. Please visit the Poppy Developments website at www.poppydevelopments.co.uk for an exciting 3D virtual tour of the show home and other recent projects. For further information please contact Poppy Developments 01803 860171 or Martha Tabb at Marchand Petit’s Totnes office 01803 847979.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.


We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.


In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
