    About this property

    • Situated within the Cranbrook Conservation Area, Mill House is an attached, principally Georgian property with a part-rendered Victorian bay frontage, a walled courtyard garden to rear, a private front garden and off-road parking for two cars with an electric car charger.

      The property enjoys a fabulous outlook to the iconic Cranbrook Union windmill, and was once home to the Russell family who were the town's millers for several generations, with their names inscribed into the brickwork of the house.

      The current designer owners have extensively refurbished Mill House, retaining and reinstating the charm and character of the period including restored pitch pine floors, doors, and large sash windows, high ceilings, picture rails and deep skirtings, and reclaimed polished cast iron radiators. Stylish modern additions comprise luxurious bath and shower rooms with Lefrory Brooks fittings, underfloor heating and beautiful bespoke fitted cabinetry.

      The ground floor comprises a drawing room with handmade bookcases, a fireplace with marble surround and inset gas stove. An excellent L-shaped open plan space is cleverly configured to incorporate a sitting room with French doors to the front garden, a beautiful bespoke fitted kitchen with a large oak island/breakfast bar, Devol taps and fittings, Fisher & Paykel appliances including a range, separate steam and convection ovens, double dishwasher drawers and filter water tap.

      The room continues around to a pretty dining room, with an original Georgian bullet feature fireplace, deep original cupboards to either side and a study area. Access can be gained to the walled courtyard garden.

      Off the entrance hall there is a newly fitted Thomas Crapper cloakroom and brick steps lead down to the useful cellar, ideal for storage and with natural light.

      On the first floor are four generously proportioned and attractive bedrooms, the main bedroom has fitted cupboards, bedroom two enjoys views to the front over the rooftops of the town whilst bedrooms three and four enjoy an outlook to the iconic Union Mill, Kent's tallest smock mill. The bedrooms are served by a luxuriously fitted bathroom and shower room, both with underfloor heating and Italian floor tiles.
