A beautiful Georgian country house of great character with lovely views set in this coveted location close to The Common
The Mill House
The Mill House is one of Chipperfield's most sought-after properties, situated within this coveted location opposite the woodland of Chipperfield Common. It is set in a beautiful raised location with some fabulous views over fields and woodland.
The original house is thought to date from the late 18th/early 19th century and was within the grounds of an old smock' windmill from which it gained its name. Today, the property is a charming house offering characterful accommodation with a wealth of lovely features and a separate detached two bedroom cottage.
The property is approached through a beautiful wrought iron porch with leaded roof and seats either side into the reception hall with Amtico flooring and useful coat cupboard. A small inner hall provides access to the elegant double aspect drawing room with working fireplace and lovely bay window. A door opens to the side gardens and a veranda terrace adorned with roses. Two doors give access to the dining room: another characterful room with the original floorboards, fireplace and bay window.
The study has one of the best views through double doors to the garden and fields beyond. Adjoining is a cloakroom and small hall opening to the lovely Oak Leaf of York with Fired Earth conservatory with Fired Earth tiled floor and under floor heating. The roof lights have temperature controls and rain sensors. Two sets of double doors lead to the gardens.
The impressive bespoke kitchen is fitted with Mark Wilkinson units with maple worktops and butler sink with a Rosieres range cooker with a double oven, griddle and four ring gas hob, Bosch dishwasher and Liebherr fridge. This opens to the breakfast room with a dresser and double doors with lovely views to the garden and fields beyond. A door leads to the utility room with butler sink and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer.
To the first floor are five double bedrooms all with fitted wardrobes and all benefitting from lovely views. There are two bathrooms and a shower room with fitments from Fired Earth and Vernon Tutbury.
This lovely detached cottage has been sympathetically converted to form excellent secondary accommodation.
From the entrance hall is a sitting room and dining room with Fired Earth flooring and fireplaces.
The kitchen was fitted by Top-notch Kitchens of Chesham and has a good range of wall and floor units, fridge freezer, gas hob, single oven, dishwasher and under floor heating. There is a large principal bedroom, second bedroom and a well-appointed Fired Earth bathroom.
NB: The cottage is separately rated and has independent gas, electricity and telephone connections.
Approached over the edge of Chipperfield Common, the grounds have been beautifully maintained and landscaped by the current owners to create a fabulous relaxing and peaceful environment. To the front of the property is a double garage, single garage and large parking area.
To the side of the property is a wonderful garden ideal for hosting garden parties with easy access from the principal reception rooms and veranda terrace.
This area has been attractively landscaped with lovely flowering plants and shrubs. To the rear of the property is a large expanse of lawn with a lovely backdrop of trees and distant views to fields beyond. There is a summer house to the side.
Adjoining Windmill cottage is an excellent Alitext greenhouse and kitchen garden with beds containing numerous self-seeding herbs and flowering plants. Within this area is an old deep well which has been securely capped. The grounds in all are about two thirds of an acre.
