The Property
The Olde Mill House is an excellent conversion of traditional outbuildings, situated within the historic Minsteracres country estate. The property sits in a prime position within this small settlement with beautifully-tended gardens and an adjoining paddock. Internally, the property is well configured with all principal rooms enjoying either southerly or westerly aspects, providing the property with ample natural light. The layout of the house is extremely versatile and has been cleverly designed with modern-day living in mind.

On the ground floor is an impressive drawing room with vaulted ceiling, inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove and staircase leading to the master bedroom. The double aspect, central dining room has attractive panelling, wood flooring and a Chesney's stone fireplace (The Marseilles) fitted with a wood-burning stove. To the rear of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room with a traditional farmhouse kitchen fitted with classic cream painted units with Butler's sink, oil-fired AGA, ceramic hob, integrated dishwasher and stone flagged floor. Also on the ground floor is a study with shelving, rear hall leading to a cloakroom/WC and separate utility room with stainless steel sink and drainer, fitted cupboards, plumbing for a washing machine and access to the integral double garage.

To the first floor is the dual aspect master bedroom which has a range of fitted wardrobes and a staircase leading down to the drawing room. This bedroom benefits from a generous en-suite bathroom comprising bath, large separate shower, wash hand basin and WC. There are three further double bedrooms, including a guest bedroom with en-suite shower room and a bedroom with a wash hand basin. The bathroom, which is fitted with classic white sanitary ware including a freestanding roll top bath, serves the remaining bedrooms.

Externally
To the front of the house is a tarmac parking area which leads to the double garage which has double timber doors. A gate opens into a delightful front garden with stone flagged pathway and a variety of attractive plants and flowers. At the rear of the property are beautiful large south and west-facing gardens with sun terrace. The gardens have been thoughtfully designed over several years and contain a tremendous selection of plants and shrubs. There are also large expanses of lawn and a number of areas to enjoy the sun at different times of the day.

Adjoining the garden is an enclosed paddock, suitable for a pony or ideal as a separate vegetable garden. In all, the property extends to approximately 1.2 acres.
