We bring to the market a unique opportunity to purchase Barnhourie Mill and Miller's Cottage.

A detached three bedroom property with detached single garage and former Mill with land extending to 5.1 acers' (approximately) with Barnhourie Burn running through the east side of the plot.

Barnhourie Mill is a listed category B, is a two-storey building, oblong on plan. A waterwheel is incorporated within the north-east gable wall. The mill was last used in 1910 but the gearing survives. Much of it is of wooden construction. The Miller's Cottage is thought to date from c.1700. It has been converted for use as a residential dwelling.

The main property provides an opportunity to be renovated with a further opportunity to renovate the former Mill. Due to the unique layout of the property, it could lend itself to many different configurations and with the relevant planning consent obtained the Mill could provide further living accommodation or utilised for many other purposes.
