Property description

An excellent opportunity to purchase a traditional four bedroom stone cottage, with an adjoining Mill annexe, which has been used for additional accommodation but would be suitable for B&B, separation into holiday lets or for family members, a large training building used for a charity but would be suitable for other uses, together with various outbuildings all set within grassland extending to approx. 6.00 acres (2.43 ha), all positioned in a quiet, secluded valley.Descending down the drive to Atlow Mill you slip into another world. The mill lies in a lush secluded valley next to a trout stream and is surrounded by rolling hills and fields. There is no traffic and wild life abounds.

Atlow Mill is located in a private rural setting with views over the surrounding fields. Whilst in a rural setting, the property is in very easy reach of nearby towns and cities and has excellent transport links. The property is located a short distance from the sought after village of Atlow. Atlow has its own village hall and church but basic amenities can be found in the neighbouring villages of Hulland Ward and Hognaston, including public houses, village halls, village shop/garage, primary school and churches. A more comprehensive range of facilities can be found in the nearby market towns of Ashbourne (5.0 miles) and Belper (9 miles) and in the cities of Derby (12.5 miles) and Nottingham (28 miles). The property is also 1 1/2 miles from Carsington Water and the local Sailing Club.

Atlow Mill offers a rare opportunity to acquire a diverse property consisting of a traditional family home with an adjoining converted mill providing additional accommodation for; a family of multiple generations; as a holiday let generating an income opportunity, There is also a separate building which has been used for training purposes but would be suitable to use as offices/smallholding facilities. There is also, in all grassland and woodland totaling 6.0 acres (2.34 ha).Viewing is highly advised to appreciate everything that Atlow Mill has to offer.

From Ashbourne, proceed out of town on the A517 towards Belper. Continue on the road for approximately 3 miles and then take the left fork signposted Atlow when the road bends sharply to the right. Continue on this lane and take the first left turn to Atlow, remain on this road and turn left at the next junction. Follow the road as it gently descends into the village, continue through and up the hill. Take the next left hand turning as the road bends sharply to the right. Follow the lane which leads to the Atlow Mill, identified by the Bagshaws For Sale board.

We understand from the vendors that the mill originally dates back to the 18th Century. The property has been occupied by the vendor's for 25 years and has been substantially modernised during this time. The property has not been on the market for some time and similar opportunities are few and far between.
