As well as a strikingly unique Grade II listed property set in 11 acres of gardens and woodland adjacent to the River Mease, Mill Farm includes a refurbished, historic watermill.

An extensive renovation and extension programme undertaken by the current owners has resulted in a pleasing mix of traditional and modern architectural styles; the building’s period integrity has been preserved throughout, whilst stunning new additions include an impressive extension.

Spread over 6,000 sq ft, accommodation is versatile and stylish with a contemporary finish – fine oak is a major feature throughout, whilst underfloor heating, new windows, a handcrafted kitchen and Italian designer bathroom fittings give the property a modern edge.

The entrance hall creates a grand first impression with an oak and stone return staircase rising to a splendid galleried landing, whilst the lounge and drawing room take full advantage of the outlook towards the mill. There’s also a separate dining room, two further reception rooms and a modern dining kitchen with Cumberland slate, wood and stainless steel worktops, complemented by a walk-in pantry.

The first floor includes a spacious master bedroom with stunning views, walk-in wardrobes and a luxury en suite bathroom plus five further bedrooms, three of which have en suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom.

In addition to the main house, the former miller’s cottage has been sensitively converted to create a self-contained annex with a living room, kitchen and shower room. The mill itself is used for general storage with a stunning first floor vaulted ceiling and mezzanine gallery.

The river and mill pond form a picturesque backdrop and the grounds include carefully tended lawns, well-maintained formal gardens and pleasant wooded grounds, all linked via pathways. Outbuildings, including stabling and barns, provide excellent potential for conversion and there is also a four-car garage.

Despite its peaceful rural location, Mill Farm is conveniently just two and a half miles from Junction 11 of the M42.
