"Brushmill by the Waterfall", occupies 7400sf in a former grist mill built in the early 1800's. The mill building was converted to a restaurant by the well known "Chart House" which was a destination for diners from 1988 to 2000. The restaurant offers views of the brook and waterfall on 2 levels. Sited on the north bank of the Pattaconk Brook, the sight and sound of the waterfall captures one's attention when passing over the bridge to the entrance of the restaurant. Spanning the brook is the covered footbridge leading to the entrance on the lower level. A 40-seat bar and seating around the stacked stone wood-burning fireplace adds to the atmosphere that restaurant guests experience when dining in this remarkable setting. With chestnut beams throughout and much of the original mill components suspended from the ceilings, it is easy to imagine the mill in its earliest days. The original character of the mill remains today, married with 21st century amenities and traditional American cuisine. There are 80 seats in the main dining room, two event rooms seating 60 and 40 guests respectively and a small private dining room with seating for 12. Two separate patios overlooking the brook and the waterfall seat 18 and 16 guests. Ample parking for 90 cars. The asking price includes all FF&E. Sewage treatment plant on site. The owners have been in the restaurant business for over 50 years and now wish to retire and move to Europe.
