About this property

  • Millhayes is a wonderful family home in a delightful semi-rural position with a stunning established garden. Inside the well-proportioned and generous accommodation offers a great deal of flexibility with the opportunity to have an integral annex with its own entrance. Throughout there are characterful features, in particular the farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room which is clearly the heart of the home and great for family life or socialising. The main wing of the house has four reception rooms, including the triple aspect sitting room with working fire place, conservatory enjoying delightful garden views, formal dining room with impressive Inglenook fireplace and the snug. The North wing has the potential as a self-contained annex with a further kitchen and dining area. This area could be accessed from the main dining room if desired as well as from the first floor.

    On the first floor there are five bedrooms in total of which three are extremely well proportioned in the main wing. Accommodation on this floor also includes a North facing study/workroom, two bathrooms and a further living room, perfectly placed to enjoy delightful garden views to the South.

    Millhayes offers the potential for further development (subject to the necessary planning consent if required) with the extensive range of outbuildings. They are currently arranged as a large and useful workshop/wood shed/store room (below part of the North wing first floor) additionally, there is an impressive barn with a mezzanine gallery integral to the North wing. Historically this very generously proportioned barn has provided garaging for up to three vehicles as it benefits from vehicular access. It has also been used as a photographic studio in the past.

    To the front there is ample parking for at least three cars. There is pedestrian/vehicular access to the Northern side of the property and the outbuildings.

    Perhaps the most noticeable feature of the house is its beautiful south facing garden which has been lovingly tended to by the current owners. Full of established shrubs, trees and plants including a large Magnolia and fruit trees it provides an array of colour and a great deal of privacy. There are generous level lawn areas, a tree house and a delightful sun terrace to the rear outside the main kitchen.
