Property SummaryThe mill’s original stone steps lead from the front garden up to a porch, and from there into the wide and spacious living room with the dining area to the left and a home office to the side. With plenty of space and an oil burning stove in a massive stone fireplace, it also retains much of the original oak beams and solid feel, and these are a recurring theme throughout the house. A connecting corridor with picture window to the side opens on to the farmhouse kitchen with pale sage painted cabinets, grey granite work surfaces, induction hob and double oven. French windows access the decking above the courtyard. From the kitchen, wooden stairs descend to the original mill room complete with an enormous cast iron wheel set into the floor, and separate utility and boiler room.
Upstairs, via one of the two internal staircases, is an en-suite shower room with granite shelving, shower, basin and WC. The crafted wood theme continues with a magnificent custom wardrobe and cupboard space in the bedroom built in elmwood, making full use of the beamed ceiling. From the living room the second staircase leads to a large double bedroom with windows on either side and a family bathroom with bath, overhead mixer shower, basin and WC. Opposite, a double bedroom has a built in wardobe running the full length of the wall.
The Annexe has its own separate entrance (or can be accessed from the main house via an internal door).
From the Indian sandstone patio enter through the covered porch into a cosy living room with a feature open tread spiral wooden staircase to the first floor. This gives on to a bathroom with glazed shower cubicle, wash basin and WC, and beyond it a double bedroom with double French doors to the patio.
Upstairs a long airy room has the sitting area at one end and at the other, the dining area and kitchen with cream painted cabinets and induction hob. Beyond, a door connects to the rest of the house.
The driveway opens up to a pretty courtyard and front garden with the recently built double garage ahead and the house and annexe to the left. A low stone wall and steps reveal this as a former water mill and the owners have kept many of the original features such as the double archway with al fresco seating area above and external stairs.
The garden to the front is well sheltered and has flagstone pathways with gravelled feature areas and raised bedding. To the rear the garden is lawned and another flagstone path rises to the far end with mature bedding and shrubs to the sides and is private but still with views all around.
