    About this property

    • Mill Cottage is a period detached home, with red brick and part timbered elevations under a pitched tiled roof with double glazed windows. The property has accommodation over two floors, is thought to date from the 18th century and later extended. The cottage retains charming period features such as the fireplaces in the snug, sitting room and a bedroom, a wealth of exposed beams and exposed brickwork.

      At present the accommodation is based on an entrance lobby leading to the kitchen/dining room, fitted with a range of timber floor cupboards and a Rangemaster stove. This room leads to both the family room and the snug. The family room is probably a later addition and is particularly light with a double aspect, south and west facing, exposed brick walling and a door out to the gardens. Also off this room is the utility/cloakroom with space for both washing machine and tumble dryer. The small snug has an original fireplace (not used), exposed beams, and a fairly steep staircase to the first floor. The sitting room is another double aspect room with oak flooring, exposed beams and a fireplace with a fitted wood burner. On the first floor a good sized landing leads onto the bedrooms. The principal bedroom has a lovely airy feel with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a double aspect with some views to Cleeve Hill. The second bedroom has another fireplace (not used) and a lovely southerly view across farmland. There is a third, small bedroom or study with fitted cupboards and a similar southerly view. A family bathroom has both shower cubicle and separate bath.

      The property sits off the road with a gravelled driveway offering parking for 2 vehicles, or via a shared driveway around to the front of the cottage where there is a further parking space. The gardens can be accessed from the front or the rear of the cottage which sits towards the middle of the plot. A path runs alongside the cottage, bordered by the river Chelt, where there are several lovely seating areas and a west facing lawned garden area, plus a timber garden shed.

    A very accessible location yet surrounded by farmland, and the accommodation is particularly good on the ground floor. I love the combination of beams, original doors and exposed brickwork.
