Full description

Tenure: Freehold

With enviable views across open farmland, Earnley Mill is a characterful period property of immense charm set within the hamlet of Somerley. The property benefits from having a detached self-contained annexe within the grounds, ideal as guest accommodation, home office or for generating an income. EPC (house and mill): F

Constructed of brick and 'Sussex' flint the main house, which was formerly a flour store, measures 1,715 sqft and has been sympathetically converted and extended and still has many of its original features which include: millstone-edged porch and oak door opening to a generous entrance hall with exposed brickwork and a stained glass porthole window. The spacious sitting/dining room has a painted beamed ceiling and an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. From the sitting room 'French' style doors open onto the pretty cottage garden. The kitchen enjoys views out to the neighbouring fields and is open to the breakfast/dining room with exposed brickwork and a built-in pantry. A utility room and shower room/WC complete the ground floor. On the first floor the master bedroom has been designed to reflect the octagonal design of the mill, allowing light to flood into the space and maximise the stunning views. There are 3 further bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom.

The annexe (thought to have once been the grain store) has been tastefully converted to provide self-contained accommodation. There are 2 bedrooms and an open plan kitchen/living space with vaulted ceiling. The current owners have generated an income by letting the property as a holiday cottage, which has proved to be very popular. The mill itself has been dated back to 1797 but ceased working in 1946 and could offer an opportunity for conversion, subject to the relevant permissions. Over the years, remedial work has been carried out to weatherproof the structure and to maintain this historic building.
Grounds and Location
The gardens and grounds envelop the the property and its outbuildings which sit within a plot of approximately 0.37 of an acre and are approached via a gated gravel driveway. The addition of an oak barn style carport and garage provide covered parking and storage with loft space above. The pretty gardens are abundant with flowering traditional cottage garden plants and shrubs with an expanse of lawn on the south side of the mill plus a raised decked area for seating.

Set within the hamlet of Somerley, some 5 minutes from the beach and village centre of East Wittering and approximately 7 miles south-west of Chichester. The village offers a range of facilities including: infants/junior school, GP surgery, chemist, dentist, library and a range of quality independent shops. There is also a regular bus service from Bracklesham Bay or East Wittering to Chichester City centre with its shops, cinemas, restaurants, Festival Theatre, and main line railway station. Goodwood Racecourse and Motor Circuit are some 3 miles beyond Chichester.
