Truly a remarkable place. You could own this historical waterfront landmark, sitting on over 2 acres with the benefit of extremely low taxes of Lower Alloways Creek Township. Built in 1889, This property was the last working Mill in the area, Later converted into a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home after the mill was closed. Approximately 12ft high ceilings on the first floor with a great view of Maskells Mill Pond provides a spacious open feel while being able to stay inside. This home is a must see for anyone who can appreciate history. The only waterfront property on the lake and since it is surrounded by state protected property there will no new neighbors. Enjoy your private dock (the only one on the Pond) where you can keep your boat or take advantage of the excellent fishing conditions, not to mention viewing the abundant wildlife habitat that resides on this and the surrounding properties. There is also plenty of storage to keep your outdoor possessions in the post frame constructed building with paved drive. The building can be used as a multitude of options, mancave, workshop, parking garage, etc. As an interesting addition there is a slot car race track in the very spacious attic. Have a piece of mind that a new septic system will be installed prior to closing. With a little TLC and a vision this home can be easily updated if desired. An excellent vacation home option. Join me and see how this absolutely unique property could fit you!

    Could be a fascinating project, to return a sense of the past to this piece of history.

    The 1889 mill was built by Thomas Abijah Maskell (1826-1909), who took over the older mill from his father, but lost it after the Civil War. He reaquired the property and built a new mill, although it became obsolete shortly after 1900.
    There had been a mill on the site for many years prior to the reconstruction. The area had been settled as part of Fenwick’s Quaker Colony in the late 1600’s, and John Mason of Gloucestershire had a mill here as early as 1705.
    The small settlement that grew up around the mill is long gone, now a wildlife sanctuary:

    What a lovely set of bones there! I can just imagine how beautiful that area is with the foliage in bloom. Front porch/enclosed driveway area is ugly as, but what a fun building.
