    About this property

    • Approached by a private driveway, Chorlton Mill is an eclectic Grade II listed family home, set in about 6 acres of gardens and grounds with a self contained, annexe flat.

      The front door opens to a porch which leads to the entrance hall from which the reception rooms flow and the staircase rises to the first floor. There is a cloak room and WC off with underfloor heating.

      The sitting room features exposed beams, an electric fire, a bay window overlooking the front of the property and has double doors which open into the games room. The contemporary living kitchen is fully fitted with a range of cupboards and units with solid worktops, an oil fired AGA, an integrated dishwasher, tiled flooring with underfloor heating and a door opening to the terrace. From the kitchen, the dining room has a vaulted ceiling, underfloor heating, a wood burning stove and French doors opening to the terrace.

      The drawing room boasts exposed beams, a wonderful open fireplace with exposed brick surround, a dual aspect and French doors on to the terrace.

      A great feature of Chorlton Mill is the games room with a bar, exposed stone work to the walls and double doors to the front.

      To the first floor, the principal bedroom is within the old mill and has exposed stone walls, a Juliette balcony, steps rising to a dressing area and a further staircase to an attic room.

      There are four further bedrooms including a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a shower, a double bedroom with dual fitted wardrobes and two single bedrooms with built in beds and storage. There is a contemporary family bathroom with underfloor heating, a freestanding oval bath, separate shower and twin sinks. There is also a laundry room.


      Chorlton Mill is approached via a sweeping driveway, through wrought iron electric gates which opens to an ample, gravel parking area. There are landscaped areas of lawn to the front of the property with herbaceous borders.

      The double garage has electric doors and is fitted with electricity, water and its own central heating system. The gardeners room is adjacent and can also be accessed via garage.

      Above the garage is a contemporary, one bedroom annexe comprising a kitchenette, living area, double bedroom and en suite bathroom.

      To the rear is an open terrace which is ideal for alfresco dining and a fenced area of lawn. Beyond, the gardens extend to about 6 acres and are mainly laid to lawn with a series of sunken pools and ponds throughout which attract a variety of wildlife. The river flows along the boundary and through the rear of the garden with attractive bridges over.

      There is also a large greenhouse extending approximately fifty feet.

    Chorlton Mill is the most charming property, reminiscent of the French style. I particularly like the series of ponds and pools in the rear garden, and the river which flows through.
