Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION: This beautifully appointed and substantial 5/6 bedroom family home is set in an idyllic location with a rich history, having been an integral part as the former saw mill for the Sandford Estate which at one time owned a vast tranche of land in the area, and is set in approximately 5.5 acres of gardens and paddocks.

This impressive home is constructed of local sandstone elevations with an array of features cleverly blending its historical interest with modern day living. The features include exposed stonework, beamed ceilings and undoubtedly one of the most fascinating part of the property is the wheel room with its 14'9 x 3' o/s wheel fed by a 10.5" iron pipe to header box, hatch and launder, pit wheel and spur to the main drive pulley. Therefore a visit to the property comes highly recommended to fully appreciate its overall attention to detail.

The accommodation comprises in brief; an entrance hall, central dining room, which can easily be seen how this becomes the social hub of this fine home leading through to the fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with quality integrated appliances. The drawing room is a lovely place to sit and relax with windows to three elevations and delightful views across the award winning gardens and leat.

The architectural design of the property has cited the sleeping accommodation to the East wing with 3 bedrooms, bathroom and en-suite to the first floor, with the master to the ground floor an impressive en-suite and dressing area opening out to the South facing gardens, with two further rooms to the ground floor which are currently being used as an office and computer room but could be easily converted into further bedrooms creating a 6 bedroom family home if required.

Complementing the accommodation from the central staircase is the bar area with a vast array of original saw mill memorabilia and the adjoining wheel house with its impressive 14'9 operational water wheel, leading out to the conservatory/garden room with its own internal water feature taking in the views across the gardens.

Outside, from the roadside a tree lined gravelled driveway provides access to a handful of properties which in turn to leads to Chipley Mill with its own entrance and architectural columns which were part of the original mill building, a fitting approach for a property of this stature with ample space for parking.

The gardens are beautifully landscaped and equate to approximately 2.25 acres which were designed by David Wassell OBE (a three times Chelsea Gold Medallist), with an array of engineered streams and footbridges with the original mill leat feeding the water wheel which are all controllable with no risk of flooding.

Adjoining the stunning gardens are a further 2.25 acres of land, fence paddocks, a small lake with post and rail fencing, a stable block, two loose boxes, tack room and feed/machinery store.

Given the properties setting there will undoubtedly be the potential to create an idyllic wedding venue subject to any consents, with marques set upon the sweeping lawns would certainly be a photographers delight. It also has the potential for a boutique style guest house in a semi-rural
position yet within ease of access to the M5 motorway "The gateway of the South West".

Other features include an enclosed swimming pool, sauna room, adjoining tennis court, garaging and workshop.

LOCATION: The property occupies a delightful private location in a semi-rural position yet close to
neighbouring cottages with access to various outdoor pursuits, paths, bridleways and a short distance to the annual point-to-point held at Chipley Park. Located just 1 mile from Langford Budville and 2 miles from the conservation village of Milverton with facilities to include a Junior School, shop, pub and churches of various faiths.

The market town of Wellington is within 2.5 miles where a wider range of amenities can be found to include independently run shops and larger national stores including the well renowned Waitrose. The prestigious public "Wellington School" and "Wellesley Park Primary School" are both situated in Wellington with the County Town of Taunton approximately 8 miles distant with its mainline railway station providing swift national access and the M5 can be accessed via Junction 26 just outside Wellington.

DIRECTIONS: From the Wellington town centre proceed in the general direction of Milverton and after approximately 2 miles after the "S" bend signed Langford Budville continue down the hill towards Milverton and at the next "S" bend turn right as the road veers to the left where an unmade lane is ahead of you. Proceed along this lane for approximately 1/4 of a mile, the property will be found towards the end on the right hand side marked "Chipley Mill".
