Property Description

Full description

Stainborough Mill House is one of just four properties in this glorious rural location, situated on the edge of the popular village of Stainborough, the home of the 18th century Wentworth Castle and its gardens of historic interest.

A house is believed to have stood on the site of Stainborough Mill House for almost a millennium of years. Today the property is a most impressive, individual home having been fully renovated and sympathetically extended by our clients in 2003.

The property stands imposingly overlooking its own beautiful grounds of superbly kept lawns and an adjoining grass paddock, through which runs a pretty stream. Our clients have encouraged the property to become a haven for wildlife in leaving part of the paddock uncultivated to grow long grass, attracting a wide range of animals and birds all year round.

Beautifully constructed in coursed natural stone, the original house is superbly flanked on each side by two storey wings, together presenting a spacious and bright interior with principal rooms taking full advantage of excellent views over the grounds and adjoining countryside.

Furbished to very high standards, the house is kept meticulously maintained and throughout the accommodation of 4/5 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms, 2 being en suites, and 4 reception rooms, there is a wealth of high quality modern appointments, an American light oak staircase and doors, double glazing and mains gas central heating.
