History
Farningham Mill was first recorded in the Domesday book in 1070, but it is believed that there has been a mill on this site since Saxon times. The majority of the present Farningham Mill buildings were built by Charles Colyer in the late 18th Century. In addition, the Colyers built an elegant coaching inn, The Lion, which still sits at the entrance to the mill estate on the riverside and is now a popular public house and restaurant and one of the focal points of the old village.

The mill estate changed hands for the first time in 250 years in 2010 when developers Vision Homes bought the property directly from the Coyler family. The buildings, which include what is considered to be one of the finest examples of an 18th Century mill in the South of England, are listed by English Heritage as an important Grade II listed Heritage asset. Vision worked closely with the village, the planners, English Heritage and a host of specialist agencies, to develop a residential scheme that both preserves the beauty and history of the site and provides a collection of exceptional individual homes.

Square Footage: 2,558 sq ft
