Not all properties are the same. In fact, many of the flats and houses coming up for sale in the UK every week are downright bizarre.
That doesn't mean they won't make beautiful, happy homes, though. This week, we zone in on a beautifully converted water mill house in Haddington on the banks of the River Tyne.
The Old Mill is an A-Listed mill house thought to date from the mid-18th century.
Now a beautiful family home, it retains many of the original features from when it was a working mill, including a water wheel.
Fans of fishing will also love the fact that the waterfront property comes with trout fishing rights.
Set in four acres of land, including a garden, an orchard and direct access to the river, this attractive property comprises four bedrooms, two reception rooms, two bathrooms and a shower room.
There is also a large room on the lower ground floor, from which the gearing mechanisms for the old mill are visible through a glass screen, that would make a fabulous games room.
Pros and cons
The conversion of this former mill has been done to a very high standard.
