Beautiful Mill House set in private glorious grounds
Standford Mill is understood to have been built in 1830, originally to manufacture paper with the cottage housing the workers. In the late 1900s, after falling into disrepair, the mill was re built to its current form, allowing for well thought out accommodation, providing a wonderful family house.
The property is set around a beautiful, vaulted entrance hallway with the windows set into the roof allowing natural light to flood in during the day and providing a welcoming, warm heart to the house. Much of the house has been constructed using many of the original materials, including old beams and local stone.
The property also benefits from a wonderful dining room, and a handsome drawing room with fireplace and triple aspect, large windows providing exceptional views over the stunning landscaped gardens, streams and Hampshire countryside beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room is appointed with fitted units and appliances and there is a pantry and access outside. The ground floor also accommodates a study and a cloakroom. From the central hall, there is access in to the integral garage.
Upstairs accommodates a master bedroom suite with built in wardrobes and triple aspect views of the garden. There are four further bedrooms each with glorious views of the garden and a family bathroom.
Standford Mill Cottage sits adjacent to the main house and provides excellent additional accommodation.
Completely self-contained, the cottage comprises generous reception space including a sitting room, study, dining room, cloakroom and kitchen. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. To the outside, the cottage benefits from its own private garden to the rear.
Gardens and Grounds and Outbuildings
The property benefits from a private driveway that leads through the grounds via bridges over a series of streams that lead directly to the house. There is a large outbuilding consisting of three parking bays and two sizeable storerooms.
The property sites in approximately 10.6 acres of beautifully private grounds, comprising formal gardens and paddocks, interspersed with lakes and streams. The grounds themselves are a key feature of the property and afford great privacy and a feeling of utter tranquility with the beautiful sound of flowing water. Having been created and lovingly cared for by a dedicated gardener, the gardens are stocked with a range of unusual and mature shrubs.
