The Wheelhouse, Corn Mill Lane, Burley In Wharfedale LS29 See map

Located within a quiet backwater close to the centre of the village, one finds the Grade II listed ‘The Wheelhouse’ on Corn Mill Lane, the quintessential five bedroom, five bathroom mill conversion. Steeped in local history, the property was built in the mid-19th century, although properties have stood on this location since 1650.Firstly, the property was purchased as a ground-up restoration project by the previous owners, taking four years of blood, sweat and tears but mainly love to create this true gem of a home, the like of which rarely comes to market and can only be regarded as a unique opportunity. This is a jaw-dropping property, which cannot fail to impress from the moment you walk through the door. This stunning home, which is an eclectic mix of many beautiful, original features with a stylish, nouveau-classic feel, will blow you away with many retro-chic, industrial features from the mill including an impressive, renovated piece of machinery, located behind a glass screen.
This location is truly idyllic, situated in a beautiful, secluded position, the property benefits from a delightful garden flanked by the original millrace. Water from the millpond chatters over the cobbled millrace and to the wheelhouse where it would have originally driven the great millstones.
Materials used in the conversion from Industrial Mill to ‘Home’ were carefully chosen to maintain the respect to its heritage – bespoke, stone steps, solid oak doors with hand forged handles, other locally crafted ironwork –gates, balustrades, handrails and balcony from the very talented Tom Heys from Flaxton Forge near York, an Artist Blacksmith who worked very closely on the project.
Only an early viewing can help one truly appreciate the attention to detail that has gone into this wonderful conversion, so if you are looking for that special home, please call to arrange a viewing to avoid disappointment.
