    About this property

    • The property is a stunning example of a sympathetic conversion of a working mill to a spacious and practical family home. It has been beautifully modernised to provide a comfortable blend of the historic features of a working mill with the contemporary modern fittings and finishes required of a modern family home. This represents a unique opportunity to acquire an historic gem which is both Grade II listed and designated a Building of Historic Interest.

      There has been a mill standing on the site since 1086 appearing in the Doomsday Book although little detail appears until the late 17th Century when Castle Mill appears on maps as part of the Betchworth Castle Estate. The mill is of timber framed construction on a brick base under a mansard roof.

      The accommodation is arranged over four floors to provide about 3200 sq ft, as detailed in the floor plan. Features of this accommodation include the beautiful ground floor reception hall that exhibits the workings of the mill. The first floor open plan drawing room, dining room and unique viewing room all enjoy truly stunning vistas across the mill pond to Box Hill beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room has been bespoke designed and fitted to include a full range of modern appliances. Each of the sumptuous bathrooms has been replaced and refitted to the very highest standard over recent years.

      Externally there is a unique viewing platform overlooking the river that is accessed via a spiral staircase from the drawing room. As you enter the garden from the house the raised terrace sits alongside the mill wheel and race, affording stunning views across the river and gardens and is ideal for entertaining. The mature, formal gardens are another stunning feature of this home carefully planted with a mix of spring bulbs, mature perrenials and shrubs around a lush lawned area, a vegetable garden and a quite magnificent Magnolia tree. These gardens nestle alongside the mill pond between the mill race and the River Mole providing a truly unique setting.

      There is parking at the front of the property along with the detached double garage.
