Aswardby Watermill is a unique character home, standing astride the River Lymm, it was built around 1780 and is situated in an attractive rural setting within predominately wooded grounds of approximately 1.24 hectares (3.07 acres). The property is located just outside the village of Sausthorpe, in the Lincolnshire Wolds, and is approached via a private lane and tree lined driveway. The delightful grounds border the River Lymm on both sides with attractive landscaping surrounding the mill pool.
The present owners purchased the mill in early 2006 and have since made many improvements to the property including new bathrooms, new kitchen, extra bedroom, conservatory, a lift and a large workshop/store.
The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and offers 5 double bedrooms, 3 with en-suite facilities, and 3 reception rooms, all with views along the river.
On the first floor there is an attractive balcony/verandah overlooking the woodland area, river and mill pond which lies to the front of the property where the river channels through the mill race. Below the balcony a partially covered hot-tub has been positioned to enjoy the relaxing views.
A large conservatory is accessed via the ground floor lounge and is a spectacular addition to the mill, offering wonderful river and garden views, having a sun deck overlooking the mill pond and a purpose built pizza oven room to the rear.
The property benefits from both Calor gas and electric central heating and is fully double glazed. The property also has a heating source generated by a hydrodynamic Archimedes screw from the mill stream. It should be noted that the criteria used for the rating of the Energy Performance Certificate does not allow for this to be taken into account and the rating is therefore not an accurate reflection of the energy efficiency of the property. A large wood burning stove is located in the ground floor lounge.
An independent Granny Annexe with conservatory and paved seating area is found in the grounds offering open plan living accommodation, with views along the river, and having a double bedroom with large en-suite shower room. The annexe has a wood burning stove and night storage heaters.
