General information

General information Old Mill House dates from the late 1600s starting out life as a small cottage with a windmill on the site until the 1920s. The property has been developed over the years to its present layout which offers attractive accommodation with interesting elevations on all sides.

The property is approached from the sweeping gravel drive which leads into the property past a natural pond. A good sized reception hall with cloakroom leads in turn through to the large "L" shaped main reception room which has a lovely sunny aspect. Opening off this is a study and also on the ground floor is a large kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired Aga.

Stairs lead up to the first floor where there is a good sized landing and access to all three of the bedrooms. The main bedroom has a spacious dressing area and direct access to the "Jack and Jill" family bathroom.

The second bedroom has an en suite shower room and from all windows there are attractive views out over the garden and surrounding countryside.

The main sitting room has glazed French windows and single door onto a sunny south facing terrace and this elevation of the house is clad with wisteria and highly scented trachelospermum. The garden contains an interesting selection of plants and is enclosed by country hedging with a large natural pond on the far side of the drive and a path leads away from the house past a range of outbuildings to a studio which is located centrally in the garden.
