Buy a Silk Mill

An 18th-century silk mill, located in Chalford, Gloucestershire, is on the market for a mere £650,000. The house presents its future owner with an "artful marriage of old and new," we read, complete with "huge stone fireplaces, beams and a bread oven alongside a designer kitchen and a dashing mezzanine-level music room. It’s not short of space either, with three reception rooms, a study, utility room and four bedrooms."
I'd buy it for the small stream and bridge outside... Live there for a few summers and write books.

That's actually an old canal, not a stream. At some point there was talk of reopening it to pleasure craft.

In that part of the world if it is that cheap you can bet your bottom dollar it was recently flooded. The word "mill" being the big hint. Lots of old mills made into big designer homes were a bit buggered.
