Grade II Listed former Mill House set in beautiful gardens and grounds. 2 interconnecting cottages providing 4 bedrooms are also included.
Priors Mill stands in a conservation area at the end of a no through lane on the northern side of the sought after village of Kingsclere. The village has an excellent range of day to day facilities including local shops and post office, chemist, medical centre, 3 public houses, several churches, extensive sports facilities and various village clubs and societies.
The village is well positioned roughly half way between Newbury
and Basingstoke town centres, which provides a more comprehensive range of shopping, cultural and recreational facilities. There is a network of footpaths and bridleways around Kingsclere providing miles of walking, cycling and riding. There are a good number of golf courses in the area including nearby Sandford Springs, a 27 hole course. There are several gyms/health clubs in Newbury and Basingstoke, while for the spectator, there is also horse racing at Newbury. Kingsclere is close to Cheam preparatory school, which has an excellent reputation. Other local preparatory schools include Elstree and Horris Hill, while there are also many other independent and state schools in the area.
Priors Mill dates from the 18th and early 19th centuries. The house is Grade II listed, with a wealth of exposed beams, and offers well-proportioned family accommodation. It has lovely views over the gardens and grounds.
The spacious and light sitting room has a brick open fireplace and enjoys access to the garden. The kitchen has an Aga, and adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room. The dining room (currently used as a family room), study and cloakroom complete the accommodation on the ground floor. There is also a store and a cellar. On the first floor, there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Garden and Grounds
The attractive garden and grounds are a particular feature, and are mainly laid to lawn with the gaily brook, a mill stream running through. The grounds are interspersed by numerous specimen trees and shrubs.
There is a hard tennis court in the corner of the garden and a swimming pool beside the gaily brook.
The entrance drive leads between Priors Mill and the cottages and continues to a further parking area, adjacent to which is garaging, a garden store and potting shed.
The Cottages, 30 & 32 North Street
There are two semi-detached Grade II listed cottages adjacent to the main house, providing a further 4 beds, which could be used as guest/ staff accommodation or even for generating an income. Both cottages offer a wealth of exposed bricks and beams.
There is an entrance hall which leads to the sitting room and dining room, with woodburning stove, both of which have access to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room enjoys views over the walled garden. On the first floor are 4 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is also a garage.
There is a pretty walled garden to the front of the cottage and to the back there is a larger area of lawn with fruit cages and a patio area.
We are advised that these cottages can be sold off separately to the main house.
