About this property

  • This delightful Grade II listed property has been sympathetically updated by the current owners to create a comfortable and characterful family home over their period of ownership.

    The modern rear extension is a nice twist, creating a fabulous 52ft kitchen/dining/garden room which offers lovely entertaining space and gives a different dimension to the striking and immaculate period styling.

    Classic period features include exposed timbers, along with an impressive brick inglenook fireplace in the sitting room, although there is more of a Regency feel to the more formal drawing room.

    The stylish and well proportioned fitted kitchen features an electric Aga; the bathrooms are well-appointed and the property is beautifully presented, with the added benefit of full fibre broadband.

    The Mill House offers everything to entertain a family outside, with extensive park-like gardens and grounds, facing out to the west to the rear, and incorporating an attractive 'sun trap' pool area, with terracing and outbuildings, including a summerhouse and also a tennis court.

    The garden is well-stocked and established, with lawns and borders with a wide variety of plants, shrubs and trees and includes a stream. Beyond, is a good-sized field, accessed from a shared neighbouring drive, using a right of way.

I have visited a few times over the years and, for me, the recent modern garden room really complements the house nicely, adding a fine contrasting space.
