A unique opportunity to purchase a former Mill set in wonderful open countryside surrounded by land which adjoins a Somerset Wildlife Trust Reserve. Milling ceased around 1900 and in later years the Mill was converted into a family home. Ham Mill was constructed in 1976 from local Blue Lias stone and has been improved and updated by the current owners in recent years. This attractive property now provides spacious living accommodation arranged over two split level floors. There are three very spacious reception rooms with wonderful views overlooking the surrounding land and countryside. There is a kitchen breakfast room, utility and a study. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside, there is a walled garden with the mill stream visible in two places thus providing an attractive water feature with history attached. The property has a double garage and off road parking. The property and surrounding land is set in a plot of around 0.75 of an acre. Further land is available by separate negotiation.
