A very stylish conversion of a detached, three storey, former mill enjoying lovely views and 3 pretty detached cottages, all set within approximately 2 acres of delightful southerly facing grounds. Located on the slopes of the picturesque Luxulyan Valley, just inland from the South Cornwall coast of St Austell Bay, The Mill is a beautifully designed conversion and its three excellent cottages are all currently let out to long term tenants but they would also be equally well suited to the lucrative holiday letting market.

The principal residence is a highly specified and beautifully appointed conversion of a former mill, offering well designed and spacious 4 bedroom and 4 bathroom accommodation across its three storeys. The conversion has been stylishly finished with clean lines and contemporary design touches that are beautifully contrasting to the appealing traditional features of the original building, which include timber ceiling beams, magnificent A-frame roof trusses and exposed timber floors. The ground floor has the benefit of underfloor heating and a 32 panel PV (photovoltaic) system, which is located on the roof of the car port and home office, provides a considerable amount of the electricity that is required to run the house, generating circa £3000 a year from a feed in tariff, with 16 years remaining as of 2020.

Set within a tucked away spot in the corner of the grounds is a cosy timber cabin, previously used as a popular AirBnB holiday let. There is a further large modern detached timber building that is our clients home office and adjoining this is a carport. Nearer to the house is a good-sized timber garage with inspection pit and immediately adjacent is a single storey stone built outbuilding that is used as a laundry, log store and gardeners WC. Within the paddock are timber stables and a further field shelter.

Rubys Cottage

Rubys is the largest of the three cottages. This very attractive part two storey detached stone built cottage was built in 2017. The ground floor accommodation is well designed with a spacious open plan kitchen, dining, living room and a good sized bedroom and shower room. The first floor houses an additional bedroom and study.

Buttercup Cottage & Little Toms

These pretty single storey detached cottages are both 1 bedroom accommodation. Little Toms is slightly larger than Buttercup Cottage and both have open plan kitchen / living rooms and shower rooms.

Koos Cabin

Koos is an attractive detached timber lodge that has been successfully let in the past for AirBnB holiday letting. The accommodation is arranged in to three areas, living room/bedroom, kitchen area and a shower room.


A long driveway leads in from the public highway and forks. The left-hand fork takes you to a large parking area and the cottages, the car port and the home office. The right-hand fork takes you along a further driveway that leads to a set of electric gates that provides access to the private parking area for The Mill itself. There are numerous terraces and areas around the ground to sit out and enjoy the delightful southerly aspects and views. On the southerly side of the site, running adjacent to the entrance drive is a large enclosed level field.
