Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Believed to date back to the early 17th century, Lower Calbourne Watermill is on the market for the first time in nearly 30 years and is presented in excellent condition. The property offers four bedrooms over three levels, a large sitting room and kitchen diner with impressive exposed beams and working wood burners on the ground floor. There are numerous character features throughout this property and there is significant additional potential, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, to convert the rest of the watermill to further accommodation or to utilise the milling machinery which still exists. There are also substantial stone and brick built outbuildings to the rear and side of the property. The property is located on the Mill Stream, which is a tributary offshoot of the nearby Caul Bourne.

The property is located in a stunning location on the edge of the sought after village of Newbridge. From this location there are an extensive range of walks and riding opportunities. The house was the subject of a major modernisation programme and has been kept well up-to-date. 

THE HOUSE The main house is a picturesque country house which offers four bedrooms, a large sitting room and an open plan Aga kitchen-diner. To the rear of the property is a range of outbuildings, one of which houses the original period baker's oven - which is an impressive feature. The house is set over three floors with the master bedroom en-suite on the top floor allowing for fine country views and benefits from triple aspect orientations. To the north of the house is a detached brick built outbuilding which currently is being used as a gym and a storage barn but could offer alternative uses, subject to obtaining any necessary consents. There are WC and shower facilities on every level of the house. 

THE HOLIDAY COTTAGE To the rear of the property is a pretty one bedroom holiday cottage which commands good rental income for short holiday lets. From this cottage there are fabulous views down the garden towards the two streams which passed around the side of the plot. The main kitchen diner in the cottage offers a fantastic lofty room and a triple aspect, allowing for an impressive bright and sunny room. 

THE MILL Set over three floors and situated at the south end of the house with a large attached building which was the former mill. Within this building, most of the machinery used for milling is still present. The large Diesel engine, the belts and ducting etcetera can be seen together with fine beams. There is significant potential, subject to obtaining any necessary consents, to convert this section of the building into a further holiday cottage or to increase the accommodation for the main house by way of linking it through. 

OUTSIDE This is a unique opportunity to acquire a historic former watermill in a picturesque location. The property is set within a truly picturesque rural countryside and within the plot there is a large feeder pond which could offer alternative uses, such as private power generation, or fishing. The main house and garden sits between two streams which are generally crystal clear and are understood to contain fish at certain times of the year. There is a good sized lawn at the end of the plot and off-street car parking to the side of the house. To the front of the house is an attractive terraced area laid to flagstones with mature shrubs and beddings plants. The footpath is located close to the property, which allows for a good range of walks.
