Originally built in 1865 and then known as Peterston Corn Mill, the property would have been a beacon in the village and beyond. The last owner lived at the property for over 30 years and, unfortunately, the property fell into serious disrepair. The current owners originally purchased the property as an investment but, whilst putting floors in, (there were none) and carrying out many other essential works including getting rid of numerous species of animals that had "moved in" their hearts were lost to the beautiful property.
This delightful home is accessed via an attractive pillared portico, which has slate steps rising to a pair of solid oak reclaimed church doors which open into the imposing central reception hall.
