An ecologically designed home with a working water wheel nestled alongside the river Monnow.
Ruthlin Mill is a truly magical home situated in an extremely private setting. Architecturally designed and built, it is set within about 13.69 acres of land to include grassland, formal gardens, a productive kitchen garden and private woodland with fishing rights. Along with an impressive assortment of outbuildings, it has the benefit of a superbly fitted two bedroom annexe with a double garage and fitted utility room under.
Internally, the house is in superb decorative order with exposed beams and brick details complemented by plush carpeting, solid wood doors and a matching staircase, stone tiled floors and contemporary bath and shower rooms. Whilst the original mill dates from the 1500s, the house has been modernised to an exacting standard.
The main house is spacious and bright with excellent natural light throughout. The bright and airy feel is compounded by the high ceilings and impressively proportioned rooms. The accommodation extends to more than 3100 sq ft across two floors, with a vast reception space serving as the heart of the home.
The ground floor is equipped with a conservatory, kitchen/dining room with AGA and a wealth of appliances, a pantry, utility room, study and cloakroom together with a stylish lounge fitted with a feature wood burner. All are accessed from the entrance hall.
The first floor has four spacious double bedrooms, two en suite shower rooms and a very well appointed family bathroom with free standing bath.
The property is bounded by about 13.69 acres of land, which include both grassland and woodland, the highly impressive drive cascades from the road sweeping to the front entrance. The stunning riverside gardens feature a working water wheel which serves as one of the property's many crowning glories.
There are many places to sit and enjoy the views, including a paved terrace with a timber pergola and a brick-built wood-fired oven. The river Monnow bisects the lower gardens and provides a magical space to rest and relax.
Outbuildings include two greenhouses, a Swedish log cabin and a stable block, plus a detached double garage with a joining utility room with a very well-appointed 2 bedroom annexe above, which has its own secluded patio area, separate access and parking and is currently used as a successful holiday home.
