Northwick Mill is a converted former mill thought to date back to 1824, which now comprises a beautiful Cotswolds family home.

Inside, the accommodation has been imaginatively configured: the dining room houses the original mill wheel which is illuminated and has overflowing water running over, while steps lead to the kitchen which has a stone-flagged floor and an Aga; there is a walk-in larder.

The dramatic drawing room sits on the first floor, and offers views on three sides to open countryside, and a wood burner. The study is fully fitted with an oak desk and bookshelves, while the gallery overlooks the kitchen and provides another seating area. The second floor has two double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite and has a Juliet balcony.

Outside over half-an-acre of gardens are landscaped, with the mill stream forming the spine. The lawn has numerous ornamental trees and the stone-flagged terrace in front of the house leads to a bridge and a formal area of lawn with a semi-circular terrace. The parking area has a timber-built office/gym and a garden store.

Blockley is a charming village in the Cotswolds hills between Chipping Campden (three miles) and Moreton-in-Marsh (four miles). The village also has a shop, primary school, two village inns and a Medieval parish church.

The guide price is £995,000. For further information please contact Jackson-Stops & Staff on 01386 840224 or visit www.jackson-stops.co.uk.
