North Mill is a beautifully presented and sympathetically converted Grade II listed flour mill. Records show a Mill was on this site as far back as 1284 with it being rebuilt in 1467 and 1806. The conversion to a spacious family home was undertaken in the 1960s. Enhancements since that time have included new roof, refurbished windows, a new kitchen, home office, underfloor heating as well as professional landscaping. The property offers practical yet versatile accommodation currently arranged over two floors with scope to convert the untouched 3rd floor which still houses some original mill features. This large space could, with the necessary planning permission, provide further bedrooms, bathroom, movie room, teen space, gym etc. From the main reception hallway with beamed ceiling and heated tiled floor, there is access to the first floor and entrance to the kitchen, sitting room and downstairs cloakroom. The two principal reception rooms enjoy stunning views from the back of the building towards the Cowdray Ruins, a late Medieval and Tudor house of historical note as well as Cowdray polo fields. Both reception rooms open directly onto balconies. The larger south facing balcony off the dining room has the river Rother running underneath. Here you can relax and enjoy the peaceful wildlife of leaping fish, ducks, swans, and even the odd Kingfisher. It should be noted that this property comes with fishing rights. The double aspect sitting room is further complemented with oak flooring, an antique fireplace with a Chesney wood burning stove as well as exposed beams. From the dining room is a kitchen, fitted with induction hob and an expanse of workspace with granite countertops and cupboards. In addition there is a large utility room with extensive storage housing laundry appliances and a sink. The first floor is of equal merit providing four bedrooms. The master bedroom with wooden floor overlooks the mill pond and has a balcony. The en-suite bathroom has an oak floor, shower, bath, double sinks and is graced with a stunning original exposed wall. The large guest suite has a wooden floor and overlooks the mill pond. The en-suite shower room also exposes beautiful original mill stonework. Bedroom three has a balcony framed by wisteria overlooking the peony and rose garden. Bedroom four is adjacent to a modern large family bathroom. Of particular note is the large light and airy dual aspect landing offers space for a desk and sitting area.
Situated on the parish border of Midhurst, North Mill is well located for a good range of local amenities including shops, schools, churches, sporting and recreation activities. The countryside surrounding Midhurst sits within the heart of the South Downs National Park and is a dog walkers' paradise. Midhurst is nestled between the historic town of Petworth with its array of antique shops and the Goodwood Estate well known for horse racing and vintage car racing events such as the Festival of Speed. The city of Chichester with its theatre and harbour, as well as sandy West Wittering beaches are a short drive away. North Mill directly backs onto several Cowdray polo fields which host the world renowned ‘Gold Cup' each July and is home to the award winning café and farm shop. In addition wider amenities are available at Haslemere to the North where the mainline station provides direct services to London Waterloo.
Accessed via double electric timber gates from the road, leading to a courtyard providing ample parking for several vehicles. There are two out buildings at the mill. The summer house is an unconverted oak framed building under a clay tiled roof which has electricity. It also houses one of the impressive original mill wheels. Planning permission is expected to be completed during May 2020 to convert this into additional guest quarters. The storage barn is a stone building with cement floor and fitted cupboards/work bench. Next door is a comfortable and spacious home office with oak floor and wood burning stove. An adjacent private deck area is perfect for entertaining or for working outside. A sleeper wall separates the parking area from the beautiful gardens which open up through a rose covered arch. Take shade under the ancient willow tree and admire the several generously planted herbaceous borders along with two fruit trees. The river runs both sides of the garden.
