Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Reception hall, two reception rooms, garden room/study, kitchen, utility room and shower/cloakroom. Three first floor bedrooms and bathroom. Attic room plus further storage area. Beautiful gardens and grounds incorporating the base of the old windmill. Former granary building and old timber barn. In all over a third of an acre. 

Location The Mill House is situated on the eastern outskirts of the village of Dennington, which is well served by a primary school and an excellent dining pub, The Dennington Queen. The historic town of Framlingham is within a couple of miles and here there are facilities for most day to day needs, including further excellent schooling in both the state and private sector, as well as a fine medieval castle.

The Heritage Coast is within 15 miles, with the popular coastal towns and villages of Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh all within easy reach. Heading west, the A1120 provides good access to the A14, which leads out to Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and the Midlands beyond, as well as to the A140 Norwich Road. The county town of Ipswich lies about 15 miles to the south and from here are direct railway services to London's Liverpool Street Station, which are scheduled to take just over an hour. 

Description As its name suggests, The Mill House once incorporated a fine brick windmill, which is shown on historic photographs below. Believed to date from the 17th century, the original house is of mellow red brick construction under a tiled roof, and sympathetic extensions have been added over the years to provide the existing accommodation. This is well presented and offers bright and well proportioned rooms, most of which enjoy a delightful outlook over either the gardens and grounds or adjoining unspoilt countryside. There are many period features in the house including exposed timbers, although the property is not Listed as being of Architectural or Historic interest.

Whilst accessed from the A1120, this is largely a country road with intermittent traffic. The property also lies within the speed restriction limits in the village.

Outside There are beautifully maintained mature gardens to the south and west of the house, which have been landscaped over many years and contain a profusion of perennial flowers, herbaceous shrubs and ornamental trees. In the north-west corner of the garden is a small Suffolk brick raised patio in the shape of a millstone providing a wonderful vantage point with good views over adjoining countryside.

Close to the house is another sheltered terrace area ideal for sitting out, with sun for most of the day and flanked by herbaceous borders. There is yet a third secluded patio area on the north-western boundary approached by a pathway and sheltered by coniferous trees. An archway adorned with clematis leads to a pathway to the remainder of the gardens and the base of the old windmill which has been preserved and landscaped to form a focal feature of the garden. There is also a natural pond. Surrounded by lawns and hedges, there are spring bulbs and ornamental shrubs interwoven in the fabric with one of the old millstones incorporated as a central feature.

To the north of this is a well tended vegetable garden sheltered by a mature hedge forming the boundary with the road. Paths meander to the western extremities of the garden where there is a parking area for two or three vehicles and a range of useful outbuildings. These comprise:

The Old Granary - A red brick building which at one stage was higher than currently exists, but which now provides garaging on the ground floor and a useful studio/storage area on the first floor. Measuring about 5.9 m x 4.1 m, there are windows on the south-west and eastern elevations with double doors providing vehicular access to the front. Ladder stairs provide access to the first floor and the second ladder staircase to the loft storage space above. Power and light are connected.

Forming a lean-to on the southern elevation of this building is a timber garden shed and there is a small terraced area beyond where young plants are cultivated.

Lying on the western boundary, but to the south, is the old timber framed barn on a brick plinth. This measures about 10 m x 3.5m with a single pitch roof and although in a basic state of repair, has the remains of the old doors internally dividing the concrete sloping floor.
