Full Details

Newlands Mill House is a very attractive Grade II Listed attached house, situated on the edge of North Tawton between Okehampton & Crediton - it has great road access to these towns, the A30 and Dartmoor.

Newlands Mill House, was the house of the former corn mill owner which was still operational until the mid 1970s. The mill wheel was used to generate electricity using the water from the Leat until the Leat was redirected and the water serving the wheel stopped. The corn mill and Newlands Mill House are believed to be the first buildings in the area to have electricity in the 19th Century.

The current owner went to great lengths to refurbish and renovate the property 10-12 years ago and it is now found in fantastic order throughout. The expansive accommodation reaches 248sqm / 2,668sqft and includes five large double bedrooms, with an en-suite & bay window to the master, plus a family bathroom and separate shower room and a lovely open galleried landing.

Heading downstairs we have a magnificent living room with a bay window (refurbished sash windows) and an open-fire, a garden room/study and a dining room with wood-burning stove found adjacent to the kitchen breakfast room. These rooms offer great flexibility for the next owner. The kitchen has a Range style cooker, integrated dishwasher and fridge with attractive floor tiling running through to the utility room. There is also a downstairs WC. The floor tiles in the downstairs hallways are original Victorian Minton tiles which are still in very good condition. The property has mains gas central heating via a Worcester boiler which was replaced in 2018.

Outside: To the rear is an enclosed lawned garden (17m x 11.5m) with the original mill wheel on show, a lovely feature from the property’s origins. To the front is a level and enclosed garden of 15m x 7.1m (min.) which is paved and stone chipped, with two raised beds and a garden shed too. The off-road parking area offers ample parking for 6-8 cars (12.4m x 9.3m).

The property is being offered for sale with no onward chain.

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.
