An exquisite and most attractive residence, which formed part of an early 19th Century Corn Mill, has retained a wealth of character and charm with many modern comforts. (contd...)
This wonderful country residence is rich in history and was converted and extended in the early 1980's. Our clients have resided in the property since 2004 and during that time they have made numerous improvements to the accommodation which today is of exceptional quality and would interest the discerning purchaser. There is a wealth of character to include many beamed ceilings, slate sills, latched internal doors and slate and wooden flooring. Some exposed stonework also features with dado rails and part boarded walls, along with wooden lintels. Externally, a large detached garage has room for two cars and space for a workshop. The gated and well-manicured gardens are level and attractive with a small watercourse running through. Miles of county walks can be enjoyed from the front door and this is one of the reasons why The Mill House is an opportunity that should not be missed.
The property which is stone fronted is approached and accessed by a welcoming entrance hallway. The lounge is a triple aspect room and is dominated by the most attractive stone fireplace which houses an inset solid fuel burner which sits on a slate hearth. The carpeted room has wall lights and is a good size with plenty of space. The formal dining room is large enough to accommodate a good sized table and leads through to the kitchen. The kitchen is designed and made by John Lewis of Hungerford with a range of matching units, plate rack with display shelving. Included in the sale is a large dual fuel Aga range oven with an extractor canopy above, dishwasher and microwave. The room has a stone floor and spotlighting. The superb garden room was added a number of years ago and is a real feature of the home. The hardwood frame fits in well with the external architecture and plenty of light is afforded with assistance from opening roof windows. The garden room has room for a day to day dining table and space for relaxing whilst enjoying a splendid view over the rear gardens. It goes without saying that at times of family gatherings and at all times of the year this room really comes into its element. Completing the ground floor is the utility room which has a further range of kitchen units and houses the Vaillant high specification LPG fired central heating boiler and the ground floor cloakroom/WC.
The stairs which extend to the first floor are rustic with stone risers which creates a real traditional feature. The landing has access to all bedrooms and has a feature wooden floor. The master bedroom suite has a vaulted ceiling and a private Juliet balcony where a pleasant view over the gardens can be enjoyed. The en-suite shower room is equipped with a matching three piece suite including a separate shower tray with double doors. All fitments in the room were made by Jacuzzi. The other three bedrooms are all large enough to accommodate a double bed. They share use of the luxury family bathroom/WC which has sanitary ware made by Fired Earth. Mill House has modern benefits such as part UPVC and hardwood windows and doors and warmth which is generated by LPG fired central heating.
Externally, the property is approached by a gateway which serves the gravelled driveway. There is plenty of room for parking several vehicles and for turning. The detached double garage has two doors and power and light with an additional workshop area at the side. The gardens are level, most attractive, well-manicured and maintained. A large lawn provides plenty of space and for outside dining a wonderful patio is well positioned to capture the sun on a pleasant day. The gardens are well enclosed by a mixture of panelled fencing and stone walling. A stream borders the plot on one side where there is an attractive stone arch which is a reminder of this properties rich past. For the keen gardener there is a productive area with raised beds and a greenhouse. Many large specimen trees stand tall and proud and add to the established feel of the gardens.
