The Mill House is believed to have origins dating back to the mid 18th century. Built of portland stone under a slate roof the present owners have recently made many internal improvements. The accommodation is light and spacious; many rooms have fine views over the gardens, including the drawing room with its pairs of Regency-style French doors with shutters opening onto the garden while the sitting room is a fine room with a picture window overlooking the garden and sliding double glazed doors to the enclosed terrace.
Accommodation in total comprises: reception hall, dining room, kitchen, sitting room, drawing room, cloakroom; upstairs are the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and three further bedrooms plus a dressing area. Outside are the double garage with studio/office and the stone-built summer house.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn by established trees and flower beds. A variety of fine trees including horse chestnut, copper beech, ash, walnut, willow and assorted fruit trees.
The old stone Summer House was built around 1835 and is currently divided into a garden store with flagstone floor and a sitting area with fireplace overlooking the river. To the side of the property a small patio which is enclosed by an old stone wall is a real sun trap. There are also raised beds and climbers.
The free flowing River Wey runs through the property and a bridge leads over to the small paddock. There is an area of woodland to the bottom of the garden with a charming woodland walk. The property comes with full fishing rights on the river.
Situated in the heart of Radipole village, a conservation area, The Mill House is set in delightful, mature gardens of just over two acres. The gardens are extremely secluded and include some fine specimen trees, a small area of woodland and a paddock.
Radipole is about two miles from the coastal resort of Weymouth and eight miles from the county town of Dorchester. Both these towns have excellent shops, schools, restaurants and mainline railway stations to London Waterloo.
