About this property

  • Yewden Place was originally converted in the 1960s and is part of a collection of other properties forming a small community at Mill End. The property has been beautifully refurbished in recent years and now includes a stunning barn conversion within this elegant living space which is superbly presented throughout. Period features have been retained and there is a wealth of exposed beams and open fireplaces providing the perfect interior for the charming brick and flint façade.

    The drawing room is magnificent, being the original barn with exposed timbers, mezzanine study, wood flooring, open fireplace and bi-fold doors opening to the covered garden terrace. There is a double aspect sitting room, also with an open fireplace with built-in bookshelves to one side and doors to the garden. The Neptune kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of wood and painted cupboards housing an excellent range of built-in appliances including an Aga arranged around a central island. This opens to the dining space, also with limestone flooring, a door to the garden and stairs rising to the first floor. Here there are two bedrooms and a separate shower room.

    The principal bedroom is accessed via a staircase from the reception hall and benefits from views over the valley, en suite bathroom and dressing area. To the ground floor is a study which could also be used as a fourth bedroom, a separate utility room and cloakroom.

    From the road there is a private parking area for Yewden Place on the left and further vehicular access close to the entrance to the property which gives access to the garage, which has power, lighting and has the ability to be used an outside office.

    The entrance to the property is via elegant wrought iron gates which open to a stunning walled courtyard garden. This south and west facing garden provides peace and privacy with flowerbeds full of perennials and roses. There is a further courtyard accessed through another iron gate with a covered dining area accessed from the drawing room.
