Gatehead Mill, Greetland had been unoccupied for decades and was rapidly deteriorating.

With a rich history, dating back as early as 1758, the mill building has been used for a number of purposes over the years.

Once a paper mill, and at another time a woollen mill, the building has been a fixture within this small community for hundreds of years.

Local developers took on the building a few years ago, with a vision of restoring the building to its former glory, whilst at the same time providing a unique housing opportunity.

The mill complex itself has undergone extensive renovations, with all the repairs being sympathetically done to enshrine the original character of the building.

The building itself now boasts four substantial properties with their own intricacies and feel, as well as four highly desirable apartments.

The mill building is nestled at the bottom of a natural valley and is surrounded by nature and has an overlook of Black Brook Stream.

Property developer Jerry Malik has commented on the development, saying that "sympathetically restoring the building to its former glory and giving it a new lease of life as luxury homes, whilst preserving its natural setting, has been challenging, but it is hugely rewarding to safeguard its future and create a standout selection of homes."

William H Brown branch manager Edward Cartwright said: “The development has been finished to a supremely high standard.

"The closer you look, the more the careful attention to detail can be revealed.”

The development is now at a point where it is ready for viewing, and William H Brown, Sowerby Bridge can advertise these beautifully designed homes.
