Original water wheel kept as design feature

A FORMER woollen mill considered to be one of the best preserved textile sites in Galloway is on the market.

Built around 1800, Waulkmill is category B-listed but has been refurbished to enhance and preserve the building’s character and rich history.

This granite and whinstone property retains many of its historic features, including the water wheel and workings in the lower ground floor, as well as two cast iron dyeing vats.

The original water wheel has been incorporated as a design feature in the split-level lower ground floor space which is currently used as a gym.

The home has stunning views, which can be enjoyed from the triple aspect sitting room/dining room or from a balcony overlooking Penkiln Burn.

The grounds feature a raised wooden tree house, three log stores and the ruins of a former mill built in the 1600s, as well as a vegetable garden and polytunnel.

It is being offered for sale through Galbraith at offers over £600,000.
