Lovingly restored by a couple who fell in love with the place, a 16th Century mill nine miles from Bath, has come onto the market.

The property is substantially constructed of natural Cotswold stone, and has many original features including leaded light stone mullioned windows, complete with drip moulds, in the former miller’s cottage. Oak has been used throughout in the restoration, in the Cotswold tradition, and the large kitchen is a perfect combination of the old and the new.

There are four bedrooms, and two shower rooms as well as an en suite for the master bedroom and a further bathroom on the ground floor, while the first floor features a galleried landing and includes a garden room and a cloakroom.

The previous owners also created a garden which is a haven for wildlife, featuring some very rare mammals and in particular bird life. The garden also includes a children’s playhouse and a circular thatched breeze house.

Howard Palmer, local partner at Butler Sherborn’s Tetbury office, said: ‘Stepping Stone Mill is a gem of a property in an outstanding location. This is only the first time it has come onto the open market since it was built in the 16th century; it’s a great opportunity for any prospective buyer.’

Stepping Stone Mill is on the market for offers in the region of £1.95m. For further information, please contact the Butler SherbornTetbury Office on 01666 505 105.
