This Georgian home for sale sits by a riverside with “abundant” wildlife and was once the house for a paper mill. 

Mill House, in Haverfordwest, is Grade II listed and dates back to the late 1700s or early 1800s. 

The building was the mill house to Predergast Mill, which was originally a cotton mill and in 1816 became a paper mill.
