Mill House is a wonderful property in a gloriously peaceful setting, where the buildings themselves date back to the 15th century, while the site dates back to Roman times – Roman coins and spoons have been found in the grounds. The mill house itself comes unconverted but has bags of potential to become a really lovely wing of the house.
The habitable house itself is stone-built and full of period character with a fine turret on the rear elevation which contains the staircase. There are also flagstone floors, beamed ceilings and fantastic open fireplaces.
The family room, sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room run through the middle of the house and the six bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors (two are en suite).
The Mill building itself forms a large western wing to the house, is arranged over three floors and contains all the historic mill working equipment – it’s an unusual space, again with fantastic potential for conversion.
