HISTORY & BACKGROUND The Mill Cottage is a charming Grade II Listed timber framed period house, thought to have been the residence of a 17th Century salt master and has more recently been renovated as part of the gated Saltcote Maltings development.
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a stunning period property, which retains many character features including open ﬁreplaces and lovely honey coloured exposed timbers, with the beneﬁt of being within a gated development on a manageable size plot; offering the 'best of both worlds'. Sailing enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with two local clubs; Saltcote sailing club and Blackwater sailing club located just a short way along the sea wall which runs directly behind the gardens.
