Charming watermill property in a stunning location
This pretty 3-bedroom watermill, packed with character features, has a delightful garden, a working wheel and is in a great location on the edge of the village.
The front door opens to the entrance hall (7m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling and exposed stone wall. To the left of the hall a glazed door opens to the triple-aspect living room (30m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, large open fireplace and French windows opening to the garden and the millstream and the water wheel.
To the right of the hall a door opens to the dual-aspect kitchen (23m2) with tiled floor, exposed beam ceiling, a range of fitted units and views over the front garden and the millstream.
Off the kitchen is a large bathroom (9m2 - bath, wash-basin, WC and bidet).
A wooden staircase rises from the entrance hall to the first floor landing. To the right a door opens to a bedroom (15.2m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling a lovely view over the countryside.
Another door off the landing opens to the second bedroom (14m2) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and great views over the millstream and the countryside.
A door from this bedroom opens to the third bedroom (8m2), again with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling and good views.
The staircase continues to the as yet undeveloped attic space (about 40m2) which offers potential for conversion into additional accommodation if required.
Attached to the house and accessible from the kitchen is an outbuilding (40m2) which is currently used for storage and which also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler. In addition to this there is a well from which the house is supplied with water. A door from the outbuilding opens to a small garden with steps down to the stream and an area of lawn - formerly used for chickens. There are also garage doors opening onto the garden to the front of the house.
The property totals 1712m2. A beautiful well-stocked mature garden wraps around three sides of the house, with the fourth side being bounded by the stream. There are plenty of specimen trees including an impressive magnolia and an ancient fir tree as well as fruit trees, a copse of bamboo, a pond and pretty flower borders. Attached to the house is a small outbuilding which offers potential for use as a study/office.
The mill stream pass by the house and there is an attractive footbridge that gives access to the opposite bank and the sluice gates - one of which is used to control the operational water wheel.
To one side of the garden there is a garden building, currently used as a garage.
This delightful property is in an idyllic location set just outside the village with just one neighbour. The house benefits from central heating and double/triple glazing. The water supply to the house is currently provided via the well although it would be possible for the new owner to connect to the mains water supply.
