A charming converted mill with a delightful garden and paddocks situated in a secluded position on the edge of a sought after village. EPC Rating F

Owned by the same family for over 50 years and developed over that period into the charming home that it is today, Mill House is a detached former corn mill believed to date in parts back to the 14th Century. The remnants of the building that housed the waterwheel form an architectural feature to one side. The house is built of local stone beneath a Welsh slate roof and is situated in a peaceful and private location on the edge of the village. The light and spacious accommodation is well presented throughout with good ceiling heights and every room enjoys views over the delightful garden, which surrounds the property. The front door leads into the spacious entrance hall with cloakroom. Double doors lead to the 30ft drawing room, with fireplace, wood burner and French windows opening on to a terrace. The sitting room also has a wood burner and is positioned just off the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has a 4 oven AGA, minstrels' gallery, lots of oak beams and French windows leading onto a terrace. There is also a separate snug/study with fireplace, which is the oldest part of the house with oak beams. There are 2 staircases leading to the first floor, where there are 4 spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and access to the minstrel's gallery leading to 2 little storage areas.
The gardens are delightful, with different plants, shrubs and trees, including magnolia, walnut, palm, copper beech, apple, oak, ash and acer providing interest throughout the year.
