Crooksmill is an impressive grade B listed converted mill located in an easily accessible rural location near Keith. Likely to date back to the late 1800’s, the mill has been sympathetically renovated into a quite stunning private home, retaining many of the fine original features in the process. Constructed of harled stone under a slate roof, the house provides spacious and very well appointed accommodation over three storeys. On the ground floor the house enters into a spacious hallway with an Oak and wrought iron staircase to the first floor and doors leading off tovarious rooms. Turning immediately left, there is a well equipped utility room whilst to the right is the dining kitchen. This spacious room has a range of wall and floor units, an Everhot range cooker and various integrated appliances (dishwasher, fridge and oven). From the kitchen, a door leads to the decked seating area. Back in the hall, further doors access a WC / cloak room, the integral garage, a dining room, also with a separate door to the enclosed terrace, and also the sitting room. This is a magnificent room with a wood burning stove and the original mill stones. On the first floor, the well-lit landing accesses five generously sized bedrooms, two of which have ‘en suite’ facilities whilst in addition there are two further family bathrooms. On the lower ground floor / basement level, a passageway opens into a magnificent cellar bar with a fully functioning bar area complete with fridges as well as the original mill workings. From the bar area, a doors leads to a cosy snug with a wood burning stove whilst also on this level are a useful store / games area and a WC.
The house appears to be in exemplary condition and has many fine features including exposed timber beams, Oak doors and flooring and high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings. Currently operating as a successful B&B, the house could also be used as a magnificent family home. The sitting room and kitchen are particularly appealing rooms whilst the bar lounge on the lower ground floor is an unexpected and very welcome addition.
The house is double glazed and is heated using oil central heating.
Outside, the grounds include an equally impressive and well maintained garden. On the banks of the river Isla, the garden includes well stocked beds and borders, a decked seating area, a patio with a built in fire pit, and a charming pond. Ample parking is available on a gravelled driveway.
