The Leat is a stone cottage that forms part of this Grade II Listed former mill. Originally built and operated over 200 years ago as a Corn and Flour Mill, it was converted in 2007/2008 into 6 properties of varying types and sizes. The Leat is found in fantastic condition throughout and would make an ideal home or holiday let.
The cottage was converted to a high standard with plenty of exposed timbers, oak flooring and high ceilings. The character can be found throughout the property and is well laid out with an open plan living/dining room including a lovely wood-burner, a ground floor WC and the kitchen is semi-open to the living space with a clever oak divider. The stairs turn to a first floor landing opening into 2 bedrooms, both with built in storage and a good size family bathroom. The cottage is mid-terraced and highly insulated making it an economical and warm property, which when combined with the mains gas central heating, wood-burner and double glazing, it’s efficient and relatively inexpensive to heat.
Outside, the driveway to Newlands Mill serves several properties and gives access to the parking spaces for the properties. There’s a parking space for The Leat opposite the front door (left hand of two spaces) and a further space just up the drive (left hand space marked Leat Cottage in the numbered spaces). From the living room, there’s a door to the rear garden and onto the newly installed composite decking with steps down to the mainly level lawn.
The cottage is being sold with no onward chain.
Agents note: There is a small section of the main bedroom and roof which forms a small flying freehold. Due to small percentage of flying freehold, this is unlikely to affect mortgage etc but buyers should be aware of it’s existence.

NORTH TAWTON is a small town, built alongside the banks of ‘The River Taw’. Settlements in and around the ‘Taw Valley’ experience a haven-like quality, between the often steep-edged hillsides – a contrast to other areas of more open farmland. The town has a selection of shops, a primary school, The Fountain and The White Hart pubs and an undeniably pretty square. For more choice, by way of facilities the larger town of Okehampton is only 5 miles up the road – where access to the A30 dual carriageway (a link to the City of Exeter) can also be found. North Tawton, as with many Devon towns has a prime medieval church, with a west spire adorned with oak shingles. The town is also known for its superb creamery. The Taw Valley Creamery (est 1974) produces award -winning cheeses, revered locally and nationally.
