A delightful Grade II property within easy reach of London.
Situated on the edge of the popular village of West Hendred, Oxfordshire, The Mill is a charming Grade II listed waterfront house in a wonderful private setting. Recorded in the Doomsday Book, The Mill is thought to date from the mid-17th century with later additions. The current Mill House has only been in two families since 1942.
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with oak flooring and exposed beams, with the main staircase rising to the first floor. On the ground floor the accommodation comprises a sitting room, drawing room, dining room, rear hall and utility room. The kitchen/breakfast room is particularly fine with bespoke units by Tudor Joinery, granite work surfaces and an electric four oven Aga.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are accessed by a main staircase rising from the entrance hall and a secondary staircase that rises from a lobby off the utility room. On the first floor, the master bedroom boasts an en suite bathroom and dressing room. A further 4 bedrooms sit on this floor alongside a guest sitting room and a family bathroom. The second floor is an ideal children’s floor featuring a further two bedrooms with a shared shower room and study.
The 9.5 acre setting of The Mill is particularly beautiful with the Ginge Brook Mill stream flowing through the grounds and under the property itself. The gardens are predominately laid to lawn, interspersed with flower beds and bordered by mature trees and shrubs. A south west facing stone terrace overlooks the gardens and Mill stream providing an ideal outside area for al fresco dining and barbecues. The grounds also comprise a small paddock to the north of the house and a main paddock to the south and a well maintained tennis court. There is also a fabulous tree house for children.
This property would be ideal for a family with ponies, as alongside a number of other useful outbuildings, including an oak framed three bay garage with a log store and a self-contained annexe, is a stable block with three loose boxes and an open garden store to the side.
West Hendred is a pretty local village with a thriving community. Facilities include the Hendred’s Pre-school, Primary school and St Amand’s Catholic Primary school, The Holy Trinity Church and The Hare Public House. There are a host of private schools in the nearby towns including the Oxford schools, Radley and Abingdon.
Perfect for the commuter, West Hendred is well located with easy access to the motorway network via the M4 (12 miles). Didcot Parkway railway station (6 miles) has a regular train service to London Paddington taking from 42 minutes.
