Canoe to your local pub at this converted water mill. The Mill is an award winning grade II listed converted water mill located in a peaceful setting within the Roman River valley, and could be yours for £1.2million.

Now carefully restored and converted into a beautiful five-bedroom home, the former tide mill offers its new owners the opportunity to enjoy riverside living, grounds extending to about seven acres, expansive accommodation ideal for entertaining and a separate one-bedroom annexe. 

The original timber building dates back to the 16th Century when it was a working corn mill driven by tidal rise and fall. It was converted in the late 90s by developers ‘Lexden Restorations’, when the property was then awarded Best Restoration 2001 by Colchester Civic Society.

The Mill is approached via a long private gated drive, bounded by the Mill stream on one side and hedges to the other. 


The heart of the home is the bespoke kitchen/breakfast area and living room which flow nicely together and provide easy access to the garden, a large terrace and separate balcony - ample space for entertaining and family life.


The gardens comprise grazing land / a paddock of just over 3 acres, a sheltered courtyard and a waterside seating area. The river bank boasts the possibility of private boat mooring and offers access for canoes and fishing.

Ann Smith at Fenn Wright Signature commented; “The Mill has everything you could ask for. Great entertainment spaces, beautifully finished interiors, a variety of views, a riverside setting, character and excellent transport options. With private boat mooring and easy access to the water for canoeing or for fishing, The Mill is an ideal place to truly enjoy riverside living. It’s not every day one can hop on a canoe from their garden and paddle to their local town to do some shopping, or perhaps enjoy a drink at the local pub!”
