A handsome detached early Victorian village residence with mature parkland gardens.
Mill House is a handsome, detached well-presented early Victorian village house which enjoys an elevated position with delightful south facing views over and beyond its mature parkland-like grounds extending to 2.09 acres. With brick elevations beneath a slate roof, this sought after spacious period property is tucked away with its own private drive and has been upgraded by the vendors with Fired Earth tiles and sanitary fittings and the replacement of some of the ground floor doors and windows. Many features of the period remain including sash windows, deep skirtings and cornicing, high ceilings and open fireplaces. Particular features of this fine house are the welcoming reception hall, well-proportioned reception rooms, including the impressive triple aspect drawing room with open stone fireplace that was carved by a Norfolk stonemason, a superb kitchen/dining room with Aga with adjacent orangery and a cosy snug sitting room.
In addition there is a useful utility room, pantry and cloakroom and the large cellar provides storage and wine bins.
The elegant staircase leads to a wide landing and four generously sized bedrooms on the first floor, all with en suite bath or shower rooms, and there are another two suites with separate ground floor access, one of which is used as an office and adjoins the garage.
Mill House is approached over a sweeping gravel driveway laid with Purbeck stone chippings leading to parking for several cars and access to the garage, guest suite and office.
The attractive mature grounds are a particular feature of the property and offer a high degree of privacy. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with a lavender lined pathway laid with Cotswold stone chippings, leading to a six metre long rose arbour and focal point at the far end, an orchard and an impressive variety of mature specimen trees including cedar, Wellingtonia and beech, creating a wonderful parkland feel.
A large raised paved terrace adjoins the rear elevation with steps down to the lawn where there is a further terrace for entertaining with box hedging, outside lighting and outside tap. There are a number of useful outbuildings including a lockable brick built outbuilding and lean-to garden store.
