This grade II listed property underwent a stunning, no-expense-spared conversion to turn it from a derelict cornmill into a luxurious and characterful home.

The property is full of character with ironwork by an artist blacksmith

Owners David and Angela Varley spent four years on the project and have used the building’s industrial heritage to inform the interior design.

“We incorporated a lot of ironwork and used Tom Heys, an artist blacksmith of Flaxton Forge, to make it,” says Angela, who adds: “We have tried to be sympathetic to the history of the mill.”

Inside, the ground floor has an entrance hall with cloakroom, a utility room and an open plan living/dining kitchen with steps up to a gallery.

On the lower ground floor is a sitting room with some of the original workings of the mill encased in glass. There is also a large study/snug.
