Mill Gill House and adjoining Mill Complex comes onto the market for the first time in nearly 32 years.  It is a stunning property of historic significance, beautifully set in a secluded location on the fringe of Askrigg village.  It is rare for such properties to come onto the open market and viewing is essential.  It is a real “hidden gem”.

Askrigg is beautifully situated in mid Wensleydale made famous by its connection to James Herriot.  It is well placed in relation to the thriving market towns of Hawes and Leyburn and within reasonable commuting distance of the A1 interchange at Leeming Bar.

Mill Gill House, together with West Mill and land comprises a unique property.  It is situated in a secluded location and has the benefit of its own valley.

It is rare for a property of such quality and character to come onto the open market so close to a well-serviced village.

The house is of traditional stone construction dating from 1721. It has the benefit of a number of good outbuildings close to the house which serves the three principal garden areas.

A yard leads to the Mill Complex, the oldest parts of which date from the 16th Century. It offers scope for a variety of uses, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.  Likewise, it could easily be retained as an historic relic, containing as it does the mill wheel and machinery used when a saw mill.    It is rare to find a property left in such good condition.
