This extremely beautiful Mill House can be found on the banks of the River Dart that flows through one of Devons prettiest of valleys. The current owner has meticulously restored this 5 bedroom house over the last few years keeping many original features and successfully creating a wonderful home. The renovations have been undertaken with particular attention to the period and style of the original building complimented with the modern twist of everyday living.
The front of the house has oak framed opening casements and on the south elevation there are the remains of the old waterwheel. At garden level, double stable doors serve the garden room, which houses the original pit wheel and gearing with timber cogs. A handmade farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room with Belfast sink leads to a spacious utility/boot room. A separate dual-aspect dining room incorporates exposed beams and a wood burning stove and has access to the garden through French doors.
Encased wooden stairs lead to the mill room where further evidence of Stone Mills working heritage is found; former mill workings have been skilfully incorporated to provide an interesting focal point. The cosy sitting room with its exposed wooden beams and log burning stove enjoys a south facing aspect over the mill pond. The en suite master bedroom, formally the grain store has a vaulted ceiling, is at the top of the building with views over to the river. The remaining bedrooms and bathrooms are to the back of the property where there is the impressive front door.
There are two sun terraces, one with a feature millstone table which faces west, making the most of the evening sun, with an outlook down to the river. The second terrace is sheltered by the banking of the Grade II listed Stone Mill Bridge and is bordered by an array of well stocked flower beds. A tall hedge forms the north boundary ensuring privacy from the neighbouring Stone Mill Farmhouse. A timber potting shed and log store are neatly tucked into one corner with a stone built workshop beside the house. Access to the paddock area across the lane is either from its own gateway or there is alternative access through an intriguing stone archway beside the bridge. There is ample parking for several cars. The River Dart is a tributary of the River Taw and Stone Mill has frontage and fishing rights.
Stone Mill sits in a beautiful and rural part of Mid Devon, midway between Dartmoor and Exmoor.
The village of Chawleigh has a village store and a pub. Nearby the small town of Chulmleigh, about 3 miles away, has a good range of local shops, pubs, restaurants and excellent primary and secondary school, library, gym and health centre. The local market town of South Molton is about 10 miles to the north.
