About this property

  • Old Mill House is an attractive, stone detached house, which has begun its revival.

    Grade II listed and dating back to the late 17th century, Old Mill House is steeped with history. The current owners have sensitively renovated whilst retaining a wealth of period features throughout, keeping the properties natural charms.

    Set in a peaceful part at the edge of the village, and with a generous rear garden and plenty of storage, it makes an ideal family home. Substantial works have already been undertaken, but this unique opportunity has now arisen for a purchaser to complete the transformation of this impressive property.

    Natural light spills throughout the property, creating a warm and welcoming feel. The kitchen is charming with a mix of old and new featuring an attractive, exposed brick and stone wall, with contemporary Quartz surfaces and storage, Stoves five zone induction hob and traditional fueled oven with flue. The sitting room has been transformed with the centre piece that is the stunning inglenook and log burner. There are two further receptions rooms and a dining room, again accommodating character features of inglenooks, log burners, exposed originals beams, mullion windows, French doors, flagstone flooring, window seats and window shutters.

    Upstairs, the landing leads off to all four bedrooms. The principal bedroom is of generous size, with plenty of scope to add an en suite (subject to relevant planning permissions.) There are three further bedrooms all of which are spacious, incorporating traditional wooden floorboards, exposed timbers and cast iron radiators. Some modernisation is needed in the family bathroom and spaces throughout the upper level, but there is so much flexibility, which would benefit from further refurbishment.

    Old Mill House is entered through a private and secure electric gate, leading to a fortified courtyard with off road parking for several cars. There is also an extensive range of traditional outbuildings, barns, stores and garaging. One barn with its own Grade II listing. Works have been partly carried out on some of the buildings such as roof restoration and a mezzanine added in the main barn, but there is still plenty of potential here too with a variety of alternative uses to be explored, such as secondary accommodation. (Subject to relevant planning permissions.)

    The gardens extend to about 1.72acres, set to the rear of the property. Predominantly laid to lawn and paddock land, there is also a wonderful vegetable garden and a variety of various mature trees creating great privacy. There is also a gravelled patio/ seating area which is south westerly facing, providing the perfect setting for alfresco dining and summer evening entertaining.

I love the revival that is taking place with the current owners. It is great to see such a lovely property with so much history, brought back to life!
