A superb riverside mill conversion arranged over 3 floors benefiting from open plan living space, 3 bedrooms, parking, River Dart views and charming riverside walks.
Staverton Mill was formerly a corn mill but in latter years became a timber mill and was at one time thought to be owned by the Elmhurst family who were associated with Dartington Hall. The building has origins that can be proven to go back to 1875 but it is thought that it could be earlier than that. There is a leat that flows under the building and is supplied by fresh field water from local farm land. For those who are keen on nature there is a traditional stone building which was formerly a lodge which is set under slate roof with a pitched porch which is a dedicated nature reserve for wild birds, bats and on the river banks there have been recent sightings of Kingfishers and Otters. There are communal lawns to the front of the property with paths that give access down to the River Dart.There is also a very attractive decked terrace that sits right at the waters edge for those who wish to sit by the river and commune with nature.
