Saltash mansion with private harbour has price slashed by £1m after nine months on the market

The driveway with the Forder Viaduct in the background In July, we featured the most expensive property on Rightmove at the time which was a stunning property in Saltash. The property was not only a gorgeous six bedroom mansion but it also came with its own private harbour.

At the time of publishing the listing was available for a whopping £3.5 million. The historic Grade II listed former tidal mill is situated in the hamlet of Antony Passage on the banks of the River Lynher and within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

As well as a private harbour and six bedrooms to choose from the new owner will also get a private woodland to the rear of the property, five bathrooms, their own bar area and five reception rooms. The mansion dates back to the 1300’s and was originally a tidal mill.
The property is still on the market. But the asking price has dropped down by a £1m. Although it will still set you back £2.5m.

The brochure reads: “Dating from the 1300’s this former tidal mill was remodelled in 1613 – seven years before the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth – with later additions in the 1800s. The Old Mill is being offered for sale on the open market for only the second time since 1886 making its purchase a truly once in a lifetime opportunity.

“This Grade II listed house occupies an exceptional setting in nearly 8 acres on the banks of Forder Lake and the Lynher River. The house, which originally formed two properties, the Tidal Mill itself and Mill House occupied by the mill owner, has now been combined into one home which has been beautifully refurbished and is immaculately presented throughout.

“The accommodation principally comprises five reception rooms, six bedrooms all with water views and five bathrooms, beautifully fitted in the most part with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware. The bespoke kitchen / breakfast room is well appointed and fitted with a range of units with a double butler sink and granite island as the centrepiece.

It continues: “Integral appliances include a Nexus Induction Range set within an alcove recess, dishwasher, wine fridge, pull out bin store and two larder cupboards. The reception rooms all offer fantastic double or triple-aspect views with the lounge and sitting rooms housing wood burning stoves whilst the morning room has an open fire.

“Central heating is provided throughout via thermostatically controlled modern electric radiators. The Old Mill is a wonderful house in which to entertain, even offering a dedicated bar with a stable door which opens onto the quayside with seating areas overlooking the harbour.

“Outside, the newly built double garage will support electric car charging and there is a stairway to the first-floor studio with its own cloakroom and shower. It sports a vaulted ceiling and sliding doors opening to a Juliette balcony offering panoramic views across the harbour and country.
