Tenure: FreeholdFrom the top of the drive, the view of the house and gardens is simply stunning, and is what prompted the current vendor to purchase the property without viewing the inside of the house, it was love at first sight!
The current Mill House is over 250 years old, it was originally a water driven corn mill, the stream originally flowed through what is now the Mill Room. The house has been added to over the years, and now offers spacious accommodation featuring many original and interesting features.
The Mill Room is a very impressive reception hallway with a magnificent galleried landing. The adjacent Cedar Room has period cedar wood panelling throughout with a beautiful timber ceiling and a grand fireplace with decorative wood carvings.
With currently two kitchens, the house could lend itself towards dual occupancy and could be divided into two self contained units.
There are potentially nine bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor.
The Mill House is located in a tranquil and secluded setting, amidst mature gardens with attractive views from the house over a free flowing stream, which meanders through the grounds of the property.
Placed in a picturesque wooded dell, known locally as Chewton Bunny, the property is within a short walk of the award winning Highcliffe Beach. Beautiful walks lead through Chewton Bunny down to the sea.
