About this property

Mill Farm is a delightful combination of renovated detached house of character with domestic gardens, generous parking, an array of versatile brick and pantile outbuildings grouped around a central courtyard with separate access and grassland, in all extending to approximately 11.1 Acres (4.49 Hectares) subject to measured site survey.

The house has been lovingly renovated by the current owners to deliver a charming family residence of considerable character. Traditional range fireplaces, stripped internal doors, tiled flooring, exposed floorboards, traditional radiators and traditional double glazed sliding box sash windows enhance the aesthetics and charm.

Two reception rooms are provided of sitting room and dining room together with kitchen, useful utility room and cloakroom to the ground floor. The sleeping space radiates around the central landing, three bedrooms are provided and the house bathroom is generously proportioned, reflective of the character and features both roll top bath and separate showering enclosure.

There is a substantial range of highly versatile, traditional brick and pantile outbuildings, barns, stores, stables and cart sheds in a typical arrangement around a central crew yard. These buildings already deliver a dedicated home office, garaging and workshop but offer further potential for enjoyment with the house, and perhaps other development opportunities as well, subject to all statutory consents. The buildings benefit from a separate access, driveway and parking court.

The land extends to the north and east and is largely laid to permanent grass with additional field access to village road and pond.

This property will undoubtedly suit a variety of purchasers, particularly those with equestrian and livestock interest but also those wishing to attain a lifestyle purchase for country living.
