An extended Grade II Listed 4 bedroom detached Georgian home and a converted grain mill used as a commercial holiday let, standing in grounds of around 2.8 acre (stms) with stabling, tack room, outbuildings and garaging. A wonderful opportunity to purchase a home with an income in a beautiful elevated position close to How Hill Trust Nature Reserve.


DESCRIPTION The Mill House, How Hill. Located opposite the popular How Hill Trust Nature Reserve and situated in approximately 2.8 acres (subject to measured survey) comprising main house, formal gardens, a mill which is currently run as a popular holiday let and multiple outbuildings.

The Mill House offers charm and a sense of serenity with rural views and the option of drawing an income from The Mill. Built circa. 1825 and therefore Georgian, The Mill House is in part surrounded by a lovely red brick wall to the front with the sides and the rear enclosed by hedging. The Mill House and The Mill are Grade II Listed. The formal gardens, which are a wildlife haven and in general comprising many mature plants and trees, surround the house with a lawn, flowerbeds and raised borders. There is direct access to the garden via a side door in the garden store and the far side reaches the stables. The pretty double fronted Georgian house has all the symmetry you would expect whilst benefitting from further additions, built circa. 1960s. The red brick mixed with large sash windows is enchanting with the large welcoming front door surrounded by wooden mouldings. The large entrance hall greets you with stone flooring, feature fireplace and a central staircase to the first floor. The dining room has period mouldings and skirting, single pane sash window to the front, with shutters and boxes, and a double glazed wooden sealed unit to the side. The kitchen has a range of eye level and base units which are made from lime washed chestnut, a gas range cooker, extractor fan, space for a dishwasher and fridge-freezer. To one side of the kitchen is a sliding door with access to the pantry. In the utility room there is a range of base units, stainless steel sink and space for a washing machine. The sitting room has triple aspect wooden double glazed sash windows, sapele wood parquet flooring, a feature fireplace with wooden surround and marble hearth and sliding doors to sun room which in turn has double doors leading to the garden. It is important to note that there is a mooring on the River Ant just a short walk down the hill. The path is now a public footpath but The Mill House has it's own right of access to the river and this stems back in history to the wherry boats bringing their grain to be ground in to flour at the windmill.

On the first floor are four bedrooms with the master bedroom benefitting from built-in wardrobes and en-suite bathroom with three piece suite. Bedrooms two and three share a jack-and-jill bathroom which also has a three piece suite.

The Mill was originally a working grain mill but is now a fully fitted dwelling and is spread over three floors with the ground floor being a garage/store room and stairs leading up to the first floor living room/kitchen. On the second floor are the bedrooms with cedar wood lined walls and a bathroom. This is currently used as a commercial holiday let and achieves between £425 per week to £650 per week. The Mill is a real focal point and sits in a prominant position to the front of the plot with excellent views.

LOCATION The Mill House is situated within The Norfolk Broads and enjoys a quiet, picturesque, rural location. There are magnificent views over the surrounding countryside, which is predominantly How Hill Trust land and a conservation area, meaning wildlife is abundant.

Approximately one mile away is the pretty village of Ludham which provides local shops including a butchers,delicatessen and tea room. There is easy access to the popular seaside town of Great Yarmouth and also the historic city of Norwich. Beyond those are the delightful beaches of North Norfolk and popular market towns.

OUTSIDE The Mill House is approached via a country lane and is situated atop a hill giving lovely rural views. Entering via a 5-bar gate parking is freely available with access to the double garage. The plot benefits from a large garden store, two purpose built kennels, Victorian green house, double garage, workshop with 3-phase electrics and mooring. The equestrian element, to the far side of the plot and away from the main house, comprises two stables, tack and feed room and fenced paddocks. The mooring is only a short walk away and is accessed via right of way through the neighbouring How Hill Trust

Continue through Wroxham and over the bridge into Hoveton, remaining on the main road and turn right at the mini roundabouts at the top of town onto the A1062 to Horning and Ludham. Just after the Ludham sign turn left into School Road and then take the second left into How Hill Road. Follow the road as far as the How Hill Trust Nature Reserve and the property will be found on the right hand side.
