    About this property

    • The Mill House is a delightful period residence with later additions situated in an idyllic location on the banks of the River Tas.

      The property has been for fifty years the much loved home of the writers Ann and Anthony Thwaite. The property offers buyers, for a price that takes into account the need now for considerable refurbishment, the rare opportunity to acquire what could be either a wonderful family home or an ideal second home, accessible from London and providing excellent accommodation of around 3000sq ft.

      There is a splendid living room on two levels with views over the river. The flexible space on both floors includes a snug/ tv room, two rooms which were the writers‘ studies and are ideal for working from home, three bathrooms and five bedrooms. The principal bedroom with double aspect overlooks the river. The sixth bedroom on the ground floor, with bathroom nearby, makes ideal guest accommodation. They were originally part of a self contained flat for an elderly parent.

      The property is approached via a footbridge past the former mill with parking provided via a covered car port and additional residents parking.

      Sitting handsomely within the plot, the house features the most wonderful riverside setting and offers a tranquillity seldom found. For the nature enthusiast this provides superb wildlife or for the canoe enthusiast a brilliant option to take to the water.

      The garden boasts a high degree of natural privacy and contains areas of lawn, woodland and orchard which all combine and give the outside a sense of character and enduring charm which must be viewed to be appreciated.
