On the north bank of the Parish Haugh stands East Mill.  

Though East Mill lies just off the A197 Whorral Bank, and is within walking distance of Morpethís town centre, its location is as quiet and tranquil as any in rural Northumberland. The site enjoys wonderful views over the river whilst the surrounding mature trees and woodland ensures East Mill remains part of a calmer and more peaceful world. 

In the recent past Northumbrian market towns have been named as the best places in which to live not once but twice. Northumberlandís small towns preserve much of the way of life and sense of community many of us had thought had been lost forever and Morpeth is no exception.

East Mill, with easy access to both the countryside and the North Eastís towns and cities, is superbly situated to reach everything the region has to offer. Whether you prefer to spend your leisure time exploring dramatic landscapes, peppered with romantic castles and ruined abbeys, or you favour urban attractions such as the Baltic gallery, Sage concert hall and MetroCentre mall, the ancient East Mill is the perfect place to enjoy the best of modern life.

Two properties were retained byNorth Courtbut have now been returned to market; Unit 1 is a 2 being the available properties, both are situated in the grade II listed building that has been an important Morpeth amenity for nearly 500 years.

Such an important building as East Mill deserved proper restoration andNorth Courtwas committed to sympathetic conversion; the Directors have considerable experience in transforming notable, if redundant, historic buildings into attractive and distinctive homes.

The Old Mill building incorporates the two properties on two and three levels, refurbished and restored to the highest standards. The properties integrate many original features including structural timber beams and roof trusses but have mains services and meet all of the requirements of current regulations.

Inside, each property is finished to an exceptionally high standard. To maintain the integrity of the restoration, the architect has created unique contemporary interiors by adapting period designs to meet modern needs and stipulated construction methods used traditional materials wherever practical. Similarly, modern fixtures and fittings were chosen with great care to maintain the developmentís high levels of quality and attention to detail.

Unit 1 is a duplex apartment with a ground floor entrance to a substantial hallway with suitable space for a study or private reading area. The hallway is also accessed from its own garage unit. The upper ground floor comprises an open plan living, dining and kitchen area with direct access onto its westerly facing raised deck overlooking the communal grounds, river and mill race. The two double bedrooms, one with en-suite are situated at first floor level along with the main bathroom.

Unit 2 is on three levels with its access from the westerly facing raised deck. A large bedroom with en-suite bathroom is situated on the ground floor whilst the entrance hall leads to a winding stair to the first floor lobby and another large bedroom with en-suite. Again the winding stair rises to the second floor living area, incorporating a spacious separate living room, kitchen, bedroom/study and shower room each with sloping ceilings, original exposed timber trusses and views over the communal gardens, river and mill race.
