Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are delighted to present for sale Mill House in Gressenhall. This is a spectacular property in the heart of mid Norfolk sitting in approximately three acres of beautiful secluded grounds. A mill has been recorded at this location for almost 1000 years, with more recently the last working mill established in the 17th century. The surviving walls and foundations now create a lovely walled garden whilst the beautiful family home sits prominently above the waterways. The home itself is beautifully presented and updated, whilst retaining the warmth and character of the period.

The ground floor features a lovely entrance hall, formal dining room, drawing room, kitchen/breakfast room, large utility, snug/study, cloakroom and conservatory. To the first floor are five double bedrooms, two en-suites (one with dressing area) and a family bathroom. Every room is finished to a high standard and superbly presented. The exterior really must be seen to be appreciated. The waterways wrap around the property creating an array of views, whilst gardens are beautifully presented with large lawns, a variety of mature trees, borders, bridges, pond with fountain, waterfalls and sitting areas from which to enjoy it all. The overall effect is reminiscent of secluded parkland. For vehicles and storage, wrought iron gates open into a large driveway with garaging and car port. As you would expect of a dwelling of such historical importance, Mill House is grade II listed. Whilst the character of the property has been retained, a warm, welcoming and desirable family home awaits a new owner.
