Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A recently restored and well-presented Grade II listed former mill house with extensive and flexible use accommodation enjoying a convenient and accessible location.

Standing adjacent to its impressive former steam mill, The Mill House, with its classically handsome white brick Georgian façade, sash windows and columned portico front door, is listed Grade II and understood to date from 19th Century. Facing south and enjoying views across its gardens, the house has been carefully restored by the present vendors over the last few years and offers well laid out and well-presented accommodation. Benefitting from an LPG gas fired central heating system and a modern security system, the house features a central entrance hall with balancing reception rooms on either side, beyond which sits a centrally positioned and impressive open plan kitchen/dining room with a fully fitted kitchen by Orwells of Ipswich, set off which is a snug sitting room with French doors onto the garden, a study, utility/laundry, cloakroom and garden room off the dining room.
There are two staircases leading to the first floor accessing the five double bedrooms and three bathrooms, together with a central library landing.
To the rear of the house is a flexible use studio/games room with an office off, and French doors opening onto the garden, which together with the 50' x 25' decommissioned pool room (with its shower and plan room), offer flexibility for a variety of uses including the reinstatement of the pool or the creation of further accommodation, workshop space or annexe accommodation.
In all the property extends to a sizeable 5,400 sq ft.

Outside
Five bar gates and a gravel drive sweep to the front of the house before dividing off to a parking and turning courtyard to the side of the house fronting onto which is an impressive triple bay oak framed garaging range with a sealed floor workshop space, and light and power connected. There is additional storage space in the loft above and a lean to log store.

Gardens and Grounds
The Mill House sits well amidst mature gardens. The front wide lawns are enclosed and sheltered by evergreen hedging whilst running around the west of the house are areas of formal garden including ponds and terracing. In addition, the picturesque former mill office, which is currently used as a potting shed could easily become a child's Wendy house and there are further areas of garden to the rear of the house.

Location
The Mill House enjoys an accessible rural setting within the parish of Swilland, just 6 miles north of Ipswich. The county town provides a full range of shopping and commercial facilities, as well as providing regular main line rail services to London's Liverpool Street Station, taking about 70 minutes. The village itself has a local pub and there is a primary school in the neighbouring village of Witnesham. Recreationally, there is a wide choice of opportunities, with golf courses in Witnesham, as well as on the outskirts of Ipswich and Woodbridge. There are also hockey, tennis and rugby clubs on the northern side of Ipswich, whilst the nearby East Coast estuaries provide a wide range of water sport opportunities. There is a wide range of top performing schools catering for all age groups in both the state and private sectors in Ipswich, Woodbridge and Framlingham and the region's main roads (A14 and A12) are both easily accessible.

Ipswich - 6 miles (London Liverpool Street Station - 70 minutes approx)
