A string of new properties have become available at Dover's Buckland Paper Mill development as the final phases of the scheme progress.

The mill was operating in Dover for centuries, dating back to at least the 18th century up to its closing in 2000.

Its purpose as a paper mill site means it enjoys a spectacular view, with the River Dour running through the middle of the old warehouses.

The very early history of Buckland Mill is said to be rather obscure, however it would have been one of a number operating in the Dover district during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Paper-making was a flourishing industry around this period, with at least six mills situated on the stream running through the Dour Valley at Bushy Ruff, River, Crabble, Lower Buckland and Charlton Green.

The Paper Mill building

Buckland Mill was the last to survive.

Using money from the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA), it's been developed over several phases in recent years.

A planning application for the final ones was submitted at the end of 2020.

The properties have a contemporary look inside

Agents Miles & Barr say the Paper Mill phase includes two bedroom loft style apartments with contemporary living "featuring high ceilings and large warehouse-style windows".

Lauren Williams, from Miles & Barr, said: "A number of paper mills were operational during the 18th and 19th century and The Paper Mill converted for this development was one of them.

"Buyers can buy an apartment, blocks D & G, in the converted building, the Paper Mill, which is an original structure converted for this development.

"Offering views across the River Dour, the development is within easy reach of the M20, A2 and M2 as well as the high-speed train line to London St. Pancras from Dover.

Many of the flats are described as "loft-style"

The Buckland Paper Mill development

"With prices from £175,000 for a one-bedroom apartment with study and £199,995 for a two-bedroom apartment in the Paper Mill, as well as two-bedroom flats in the Waterwheel from £249,995 this is loft-style designed development is well worth a look."

She added the new homes have been designed and built by an Award Winning Developer.

The apartments come with integrated kitchen appliances, white worktops, oak flooring and bespoke bathrooms, with some apartments enjoying balconies and river views.

There's also an onsite convenience store, gym and bar/restaurant.
