This former watermill dates from around 1760 and is for sale for offers in excess of £1million with Brown & Co jointly with Jackson-Stops & Staff.
There has been a mill on this site since Norman times and although it ceased production in 1976, it was restored in the 1980s and retains much of the original character and fabric of the building.
The timber frame has been invisibly reinforced with steel and the walls and roof were insulated, the exterior re-clad and further works have been undertaken over the last 15 years by the vendors.
The property is approached at the front via a hall with stairs leading to the first floor and with access to the lower ground floor store, which is such an important feature of this mill.
The first floor accommodation includes a study and open plan spaces including the kitchen area which was designed by John Barnard together with the dining area and an extensive open plan sitting/family room with views out over the river and featuring a wood burning stove.
There are two bedrooms at the far end of the first floor including the master bedroom suite and otherwise there are two further floors providing five more bedrooms and a pool/games room.
The ground floor includes the double garage and the lower ground floor provides space as a store but also acts as a games room with a door to the rear of the property. Outside are grounds of approximately 2.7 acres which include fruit trees including apples, pears, plum and quince.
A summerhouse on one side of the river is included in the sale and beyond the garden area is a paddock producing an income of approximately £1,500 per annum.
