Picturesque former mill house in Dorset for sale

The Mill House is an exceptional period property on the edge of the very pretty Dorset village of Abbotsbury. The property was built in the mid-17th century and was originally a working mill which was converted around 30 years ago and sits in a peaceful valley overlooking farmland and the sea beyond.

The house itself still has its original wooden crown wheel for the mill, some lovely ceiling timbers and deep window ledges. The master bedroom is a bright, spacious vaulted room over two levels with a fine exposed ceiling and an en-suite bathroom.

Accommodation comprises: hall, cloakroom, kitchen, sitting room, master bedroom suite, two further bedrooms and a second bathroom.

Outside the house the lawn is bordered by the pretty mill stream which gives way to open farmland. The garden has a wealth of mature trees including Ash, Beech, Willow, Scots Pine and a number of fruit trees. To the rear of the property is a stone terrace and a timber home office with power and light.
