The Mill House is a period property at the end of a no-through lane in an unbeatable position at the edge of the River Ock in Oxfordshire. There is thought to have been a mill house here since the 11th century and this property was in use throughout the 1920s when it was converted into a dwelling.

The main reception room is the most impressive in the property and extends to over 13 metres making ideal for entertaining. The kitchen/breakfast room has a particularly fine fireplace and is at the heart of the house; there are five bedrooms in the main house and a further guest bedroom at the southern end of the property in the coach house. To the west of the property is a large terrace surrounding the outdoor pool which has wonderful views to up the river and across the open fields.
