A highly unusual and characterful one bedroom cottage arranged over three floors within the prestigious Dunkirk Mills complex with private terrace and entrance and an abundance of charm
Located at the southerly end of this Grade II listed complex The Drying House is blessed with a sunny terrace area overlooking the stream to the rear and its own private entrance. Arranged over three floors this unique property retains a great deal of charm and character features, and due to its layout boasts greater than average storage. Solid hardwood doors allow access to a mezzanine entrance from which the bedroom can be found above and the living accommodation below. The bedroom is light and bright with a beautiful vaulted ceiling and character window-light, while the sitting room below has a dual aspect with a lovely outlook and delightful exposed stone features. Stairs lead down further to a well equipped kitchen, naturally lit by a light-well and a bathroom complete with rain shower system. The property has been thoughtfully restored and updated to complement its rich history and includes solid wooden latch doors throughout and lots of exposed stone and timbers.
The apartment quite uniquely has its own small terrace overlooking the stream, allocated parking and ample visitors parking.
