Tenure: Freehold

Willey Mill is a fascinating historic property (Listed Grade 2) believed to date from the 13th Century and referred to in the Domesday Book as one of the six mills on the River Wey and which operated in part until the 1950s. In recent years there has been significant restoration and updating
with much of the working machinery left intact including the impressive wooden driving gear and shafting. The property now provides generous, flexible accommodation, numerous
bedrooms and excellent reception areas in particular a magnificent Drawing Room displaying part of the mill working and mill stones.
The Mill overlooks the mill race with an outlook upstream and downstream with a fine riverside partly walled garden and small island, also enjoying fishing rights over its waters. In the past the property has had an element of commercial
usage in addition to providing a fine family home.
