Situated on a quiet lane only two miles from the busy town of Biggar, Mill House is a beautiful, solid and substantial five bedroom period farmhouse, with adjacent one bedroom annex, in a half acre walled garden. The interior combines many original features: wood and tiled floors, shuttered bay windows and original cornices, with a clean, modern edge. The property also includes several stone outbuildings around a large, open courtyard and 6 acres of excellent, well fenced grazing land in which is situated a unique and delightful, self contained, green oak-framed cottage with a double bedroom and spectacular views.

This is a spacious and comfortable home for a large family, with tremendous opportunities for the buyer interested in the "Good Life", but well within commuting distance to Edinburgh or Glasgow. The outbuildings offer huge scope for upgrade and modernization (subject to relevant planning regulations) and the private garden is an oasis of calm - paradise to the green fingered and blooming with potential.

A new, powerful biomass boiler was installed in 2016, which supplies the central heating and hot water to the entire house and annex. It will continue to attract a heritable quarterly RHI return until 2023. The cottage currently enjoys 100% Small Business Relief on its council tax, whilst it is used as a short let.

Mill House is situated only a few minutes away from the bustling town of Biggar with its well respected school, rugby club, medical centre, and its host of thriving independent shops and cafes.
