An example of adaptive reuse, this historic mill converted into an estate in Beattystown is on the market and asking $925,000.
The main structure, what was once the Stone Mill, features a loft-style living space boasting exposed hand-hewn beams, stone walls, and an entire wall of glass.
The most beautiful detail of the home is the millrace, which is what originally powered the gristmill’s grinding stone and still flows under what is now the living room. Visible through an arched window with a seating area and a glass pane in the floor, the historical detail is rightfully dramatized. Additional timely characteristics include wide-plank flooring, two stone fireplaces, and a pub for entertaining.
The home is four bedrooms, four full baths, and two half-baths. The stairs from the upper-level spill into the nearly triple-height loft space of the living room — creating a sculptural moment for these beautiful wooden stairs.
As an added bonus, the property includes two additional structures — the Miller’s House and the General Store — both of which are two-bedroom rentals and can provide the owner with about $25,000 of income.
The Estate also encompasses over 900’ of river frontage, offering residents with green views from their rear balcony.
The home, located at 1818-1830 Route 57, is asking $875,000.
