Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Iron Mill is a superb detached stone mill building which was converted into a unique family home in the 1980s. The interior was then designed with the previous owner's specifications and now offers a wonderful blank canvas to create a stylish home across the two principal floors. Stone steps lead up to the upper middle floor and into the spacious open plan living space which benefits from windows and double doors opening out on to the terrace with the leat flowing below; steps link the terrace to the garden below. The kitchen is located off this super room whilst a further reception room at the far end has pleasant views from its triple aspect. A bathroom, store room and utility complete the accommodation on this floor. A wide central staircase leads to the first floor landing. The master bedroom is a super room, once again with a wonderful triple aspect and with a spacious private bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. If even more space is required the large attic space remains unconverted. The ground level of Iron Mill has a central workshop and storage room which leads to a double garage with plenty of further storage with doors opening out to the cobble parking area. The water mill is at the far end, the leat feeds the water wheel pit and flows under the lane to the tail race in the neighbouring land re-joining the River Frome a little further along.


This idyllic spot is wonderful for wildlife with otters, kingfishers, egrets, herons and of course ducks! The river is wonderful in summer for paddling and swimming but obviously deeper in the winter months. From the west facing balcony steps lead down to the garden which runs alongside the leat. There is also a wonderful triangular island paddock between the leat and the river currently grazed by the neighbours sheep; the perfect lawnmowers. The Iron Mill also benefits from riparian rights along your own stretch of the river and leat. There are also glorious walks in the immediate area with the Orchard Leigh Estate situated just up the hill. All in all, two acres of pastoral land and river frontage.
