Full description

THAT SOMETHING UNIQUE AND QUIRKY HAS FINALLY COME ALONG! Amazing truly is the only word for this one off property, Mill House is a detached Tudor Cottage in the heart of the exclusive Raby Mere sitting in approx 3.5 acres of beautiful countryside directly opposite the Mere, this Grade ll listed building has to be viewed to be appreciated. Originally built for the Earl of Shrewsbury dating back to the 10th century the building was completed in the 1600's when Charles the Second was King! Whilst retaining many original features the house is also ideal for modern living having been granted planning permission for several extensions an early viewing is recommended. Briefly comprising two reception rooms, bespoke kitchen/diner, utility room, four double bedrooms the main having an en-suite shower room, family bathroom, double garage. The property was later used as a Water Mill for producing corn and was retired in 1850 the ruins of which lay in the grounds but we believe this could be restored through the English Heritage organisation, the property has over the years also been used commercially and could possibly be again subject to the relevant planning, if you would like to own a piece of history this is the property for you.
