A restored watermill in County Antrim, that dates back to the mid 19th century, is on the property market with an asking price of £750,000.
Whiggleton Mill is located in Kells, County Antrim and contains two properties (41 and 41A) that rests on an impressive two-acre site.
This semi-rural location is approximately 30 minutes from Belfast and 20 minutes from Belfast International Airport. It is the ideal spot for city commuters.
Number 41 is the main detached house that is steeped in rich history. Formerly a mill, it produced linen that dates back to the 1840’s. This is a striking stone-built residence with a working waterwheel attached.
County Antrim has a long tradition associated with linen production. This four bedroom house for sale is a reminder of the once booming industry.
The living room is a superb area with a vaulted ceiling that really catches the eye. This vaulted ceiling also complements the oak floor, wood burning stove and exposed stone details beautifully.
The kitchen is a bright and stylish area which includes a casual dining space. A balcony is accessed via the kitchen and offers stunning views across the rolling countryside and the Kells Water River.
There is also a bathroom, with freestanding bath, and wetroom.
Number 41A is the adjoining building that consists of two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom and wet room.
A substantial outdoor site contains a large yard area, shed and magnificent gardens that border the river.
Mark Leinster, associate partner at Simon Brien Residential, highlighted that the property’s charming historical features would prove extremely popular with potential buyers.
“This property is a piece of Co. Antrim history and this is a unique opportunity for someone to acquire a fully functional watermill which has been beautifully restored throughout,” he said.
Mr. Leinster describes the setting of the watermill in County Antrim as outstanding and adds that the properties have been “finished to the highest of standards throughout”. He believes the residence offers the benefits of rural living but is also conveniently located to main transport routes.
“The location is exceptional, approximately 30 minutes from Belfast, 20 minutes from Belfast International Airport and 45 minutes from the attractions of the North Coast,” added Mr Leinster.
