An historic former mill and cottage in a beautiful position in Mid Devon comes to the market for the first time in nearly a century.

Delightful Grade II listed Aldridge Mill, Stoodleigh, Devon, originally formed part of the historic Stoodleigh Estate and was sold by public auction on September 4, 1925.

It was purchased by the current vendor’s family at that time and has remained in their ownership for over 90 years.

The property has no modern conveniences and no main services are connected. However it provides a “blank canvas” to create an individual and attractive character home.

Tony Overhill, FRICS FAAV Partner at Greenslade Taylor Hunt, who are marketing the property, said: “The sale today affords prospective purchasers with the increasingly rare opportunity to acquire an original and historic former mill and adjoining cottage, which was until recently, occupied by the vendor.

“This is a unique property, occupying an unspoiled position within Mid Devon and centred on a Grade II listed former mill and adjoining cottage.

“It is n need of general improvement and modernisation, but affords the potential to create an exceptionally attractive and highly individual family home.”

In addition there is a substantial traditional barn with potential for alternative uses together with surrounding pasture and woodland with stream frontage. In all it extends to 41 acres.

The property is guided at £500,000 and will be offered for sale by public auction (unless previously sold) on Friday, October 19 at 2.30pm at The Tiverton Motel, Tiverton.
