Dating back to the 1800s 'Norton Mill House', a 7 bedroom period residence with up to 2 acres available & nestled within the picturesque location of Nortonbury. Nortonbury is a semi-rural spot between the popular towns of Baldock & Letchworth Garden City. Offering the best of both worlds boasting all the attractions of rural living while being only a short distance from major commuting links including Baldock's mainline train station & the A1M.

Surrounded by beautiful field views and a tranquil river bank bordering the property on one side, the location currently attracts much of the areas common wildlife. This attractive home not only offers a wealth of character features but is also sat on an extremely generous plot and provides any potential buyer with huge potential and scope for further improvements.

The property is in need of some updating, however much of the period features have been retained including open fireplace's, feature bay windows & internal/external doors. The accommodation currently comprises an impressive Entrance Hall with 'Elm' panel boarding, staircase rising to first floor & doors leading to all ground floor accommodation including Kitchen/Diner, Dining Room, Drawing Room, Utility Room, Downstairs Shower Room & Cloakroom. There are also multiple access doors leading to the grounds.

The first-floor accommodation leads from a generous landing area with feature window to side aspect. It comprises Four Double Bedrooms all boasting impressive high ceilings and En-Suite to Master with an additional Family Bathroom. Created by the current owners, the landing has been separated into two with an enclosed staircase rising to Second Floor & access to an airing cupboard.

The second floor (originally the servant's quarters) comprises three further double bedrooms & a second Family Bathroom. The second floor occupies half of the roof space but could be re-arranged to suit any potential buyer's needs (subject to any necessary approvals). From the second floor, there is also access to the loft space.

There is also an underground cellar which is currently access externally. With full head height, the cellar follows the footprint of the original layout and currently serves predominantly as storage space. Externally the property is sat on established grounds approaching 2 acres. With shared gated access from Nortonbury Lane, the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a shingled driveway approach to the front of the property where there is ample parking for multiple vehicles. The gardens are a complete wrap around plot with an additional enclosed paddock of approx. 1 acre to the rear.
