The Old Mill is a property that will appeal to buyers who are seeking a contemporary wow-factor home imbued with character and a deep sense of history and longevity.

Located in the rural hamlet of Sauchieburn, just three miles from the city of Stirling and only two miles from the M9, the property was built around 1750 as a working mill and converted to form a unique family home in 1991. The addition of a beautiful setting, with fully landscaped garden grounds and a lade, waterfall, and Sauchie Burn on the perimeter, is this property’s ace card – and on a historic note, the Battle of Sauchieburn - fought at the side of the Sauchie Burn in 1488 – was the catalyst for James IV becoming King of Scotland.

Configured over three levels, the contemporary-styled accommodation spans 2325 sq ft to give a ground level entrance hall with slate floor, beautiful limestone-tiled shower room with walk-in shower, 21ft living room - with stone fireplace/multi-fuel stove, and French doors to the garden - and a superb, dual aspect, open plan country-style kitchen (integrated LPG hob and electric over/hood) and dining/sitting room, which also has a multi-fuel stove.

The Herald:

Stairs in the hall lead down to the lower-level hallway with abundant built-in storage, leading to a characterful, 20ft sitting room with exposed stone feature wall, open fireplace, and doors to the patio and lower garden. The two bedrooms on this level are both presently used as offices – there is also a utility room with inbuilt units and plumbing and drainage already in place, which could allow conversion, subject to planning, to provide a kitchen or bathroom.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing provides views over the front garden and access to two further double bedrooms, each of which benefits from fitted storage and a fully tiled en suite shower room, while one also has a dressing area.

The Herald:

Other notable features include quality oak veneered flooring throughout the public rooms, staircases, hallways and main bedrooms, double glazing, and oil-fired central heating via a heat store and external boiler, while the multi-fuel stove in the dining kitchen can provide supplementary heat into the system. The property also has gated access to a Tarmac driveway with space for parking several vehicles, substantial stone-built garage and workshop (both with power and lighting), and wood store.

The Herald:

The Old Mill offers a delightful rural lifestyle yet is only a short drive from Stirling city centre amenities and attractions, while the towns of Dunblane and Bridge of Allan are also within easy reach. Offers over £515,000 are invited by Aberdein Considine’s Stirling office.
