The Threshing Mill forms part of the former stone steading at Wester Essenside. The conversion provides a spacious and flexible family home suitable for modern living whilst retaining many interesting features. The original mill was housed in what is now the family kitchen and the sitting room was the grain store with the grain hopper on the floor above.
Outside the south facing garden incorporates the mill stream and is laid mostly to lawn with a patio area accessed by French doors from the kitchen. A gravel area to the south of the house provides ample parking for up to 5 cars. There is a double garage with electric doors and a further building incorporating a workshop, storage and loft.
The Threshing Mill has good equestrian facilities comprising a yard made up of timber stables, tack room, hay stores, field shelters, an outdoor arena with a sand and rubber mix surface and approx 5 acres of fenced paddocks. The house and yard are ideally located for quiet country hacks with access to extensive forest tracks. The Ian Stark Equestrian Centre is just 6 miles away.
