The Sawmill is a truly stunning detached period former farmhouse which has recently undergone a sympathetic programe of tasteful refurbishment and restoration to create a beautiful family orientated home on the edge of this pretty Vale of Belvoir village.

This charming village residence offers considerable character with its pretty double fronted facade which hides a wealth of accommodation having been thoughtfully reconfigured and extended by way of a superb oak framed garden room to the rear, retaining much of its original features with high ceilings, deep skirting, original doors and period fireplaces, offering a light and airy atmosphere with neutral decoration throughout. The homely accommodation which in the main house approaches 2500 sq ft over three floors, with an additional 1000 sq ft in a complementing outbuilding/coach house which offfers annexe style facilities perfect as a guest/teenage suite or annexe for extended families.
