About this property

  • Millers on Cooks Hill is one of the older houses in the area and is Grade II listed. Having been the subject of a programme of upgrading and modernisation over the past few years, the house still offers further potential for a buyer to perhaps further enhance the current living space to their own tastes.

    The house is set back from the road behind a deep gravelled driveway providing a turning area. The entrance hallway gives access to the three principle reception rooms - a dining room, family room and drawing room. These rooms retain much character with high ceilings and period fireplaces, some of the rooms with wooden floors and fitted plantation-style shutters. The family room, which is set to the rear of the house has doors opening onto a covered Pergola and in turn the garden.

    The kitchen sits at the hub of the house with a larder, utility room and side access. To the rear of this sits an additional reception room - currently used as a morning room with a mezzanine store area. Beyond this is a boot room and the second guest cloakroom. This area can be accessed independently of the main house and could provide an ideal internal annex if required.

    Upstairs there are four good sized bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room, the others sharing a family bathroom/WC.

    On the outside, there is a good sized rear and side garden with extensive lawn areas, flowerbed borders and various fruit trees.

Wonderful charm and character with this traditional Georgian home – this sort of style is incredibly popular and offers great sized living space in a most convenient position. I love the garden – great for the children to play in with an historic village church at the bottom of the lane.
