The perfect idyll with river frontage and your own private haven, in all about 5.62 acres
The Mill House is your quintessential country house exuding elegance offering a wonderful feel in a private and tranquil setting. It sits proudly in its own grounds of about 5.6 acres with wonderful mature, colourful and fragrant gardens and woodland. The River Perry flows alongside and below the gardens offering the perfect lifestyle. Being a historic house it is beautifully positioned next to the River Perry, but out of the flood zone. The house dates back to 1750 with later additions and is extremely appealing.
The pretty façade has a wonderful climbing rose and a selection of plants and shrubs bordering offering a welcome feel. A covered porch over the front door opens into the hallway, with quarry tiles which continue into the study, the cosy snug with an open fire and the fabulous kitchen breakfast room. There is a four door AGA, a number of fitted units with oak worktops and double doors which open out onto the wonderful terrace and gardens. A good size pantry/utility is accessed via the kitchen. The hall also provides access to the drawing room which is extremely elegant. There is a large fireplace with a wood burning stove and a door which leads onto the terrace and gardens.
The first floor has three double bedrooms, a dressing room/nursery and a family bathroom. There is restricted head height to the stairs to the second floor, which then opens up to a lovely fourth bedroom with a further bathroom.
The gardens at The Mill House have been very well thought out and much time and effort has been put into creating a haven to attract wildlife and to enjoy nature at its best. The setting can almost take you back in time and is the classic English country garden. The formal gardens are situated to the rear of the house where there is a superb terrace overlooking the large lawn area which stretches from the rear of the house, the River Perry and the countryside beyond.

There is a mature climbing rose on the rear of the house which is equally as pretty as the front façade, with a number of shrubs and plants in the foreground. The outbuildings are situated across the lane and are brick and sandstone providing a log and garden store but could, with planning permission, be converted into a home office, or further accommodation. There is an extremely productive vegetable garden which is bordered with a natural willow fence. A path leads into a woodland with mown paths, which is planted with a number of native specimen trees.
One paddock is located a short walk down the lane and has gated access. There is a further small paddock situated to the left of the drive just alongside the picturesque mill pond.
Adjacent to The Mill House is an arboretum planted with a national collection of Birch Trees, with a footpath running through. It was specifically planted by the owners over the last 26 years for the wider community to enjoy. This area will be retained by the current owners, in a trust, to offer others to enjoy it as part of an ongoing legacy.
