    About this property

    • THE MILL
      The partially glazed front door opens into a large Clipsham stone flag floored dining kitchen with exposed stonework walls and a high timber beamed ceiling. The kitchen is fitted with an oak Shortland suite under granite worktops incorporating an inset sink and integrated appliances, with space for a range cooker. A utility cupboard has plumbing for a washing machine and also houses the central heating boiler. The kitchen, together with the 23' sitting room, occupy the entire ground floor. The flagged sitting room is impressive. Dual-aspect, it has views to the river and French doors to the south facing garden, with partially exposed stone walls and chimney breast, which houses a wood burning stove.

      The staircase rises to the first floor accommodation beneath the old granary winches, from which one gets a real sense of the building's past. To the left, a partially galleried landing has been used as a study and dressing area, and accesses the principal bedroom and the well-appointed family bathroom. The principal bedroom is triple aspect and the entire width of the building, with views over the garden and to the river. The bathroom, by Fired Earth, comprises a circular shower cubicle, roll topped bath, WC, and stone sink with vanity on an oak pedestal. The landing corridor leads past bedrooms two and three, each of which has charm, with either a garden or river view, to a staircase rising to the en suite guest bedroom. This spacious double bedroom is again full width with wooden flooring, with an Fired Earth en suite wet room with tiling, WC and vanity wash hand basin with ceramic sink and oak surfaces. A door and staircase rises to a large attic room.

      The Mill has a grassed garden along its frontage, whilst the formal principal garden lies to the south and west of the property. A partially covered stone terrace adjoins the sitting room with a lower lawn with parterre beds and flowering cherry tree. Steps rise to an upper lawn to the south of the house, where a circular paved path leads to a terrace offering views to the river.

      The property's private driveway has double wooden gates which give access to the garden, whilst there is additionally parking and the property's private garage across the lane from The Mill.

    I love the setting of this riverside property, whilst I find this house charming and deceptively spacious with well-proportioned rooms, a wealth of period detailing and enclosed south facing garden. It feels rural, whilst being so convenient for commuting from Peterborough and access to a number of renowned schools.
