    About this property

    • Uniquely positioned in open countryside, just ½ mile South of the popular rural village of Everdon, Snorscomb Mill is approached via a single track gated road with unspoilt and far-reaching views. On arrival a single five bar gate opens to a large gravel parking area with access to the main house annexe and detached garage.

      This 19th century mill been meticulously refurbished to a high standard retaining all the period charm on the outside whilst offering modern low-energy eco-living on the inside. The mill still extracts energy from the stream to heat the house via a ground source heat pump. The mill is today a stunning family house with beautiful reception rooms, a wonderful open plan kitchen / family room and ample bedrooms, most with en suite bathrooms.

      Built of stone under a slate roof, Snorscomb Mill is light and spacious with views across the gardens from all principal rooms. Particular features include a beautiful handmade kitchen by Grand Union Designs and family room, main sitting room with orangery and first floor media room. Attention to detail and quality, including oak staircase, underfloor heating to reception rooms and kitchens, high specification internal insulation to all external walls, pressurised water systems, bifold and sliding doors.

      In addition, on the first and second floors the principal bedroom and guest suite have unrestricted countryside views and private ‘ski chalet type' balconies.

      There is a self-contained, one bedroom annexe with separate kitchen and underfloor heating. Above the garage is a studio with an en suite shower room that could form an eighth bedroom.

      The gardens are wonderful and totally private with many features. The vendors have spent time redesigning and landscaping the gardens to create features in keeping with the property whilst allowing for peaceful moments. From swimming in the natural pond to enjoying the sun on the large terrace that extends from the orangery and the kitchen. The gardens include a wooded area with many trees including, Ask, Oak, Rowan, Birch. The woodland has been opened up to create more open space and encourage the lawn and wild flowers beneath. Foot bridges and sensible landscaping join the separate parts of the garden to provide many locations for quiet compilation or entertaining any time of the day or evening.
