Full description

Andrew's Estates are delighted to present this rare opportunity to purchase a one of a kind Detached Shakespearean masterpiece which was once owned by the Earl Of Shrewsbury. Buzzing with character this grade two listed building dates back to the 10th century, with the building being completed in the 1600's. Retaining most of it's original features this quirky property is located next to the famous Raby Mere Pond, situated within three and a half acres of charming wilderness. In brief the property comprises of welcoming Sitting Room, Lounge, Utility/WC, Kitchen/Diner, Four Double Bedrooms, Bathroom, En Suite, Off Road Parking For Multiple Vehicles and three and a half acres of Woodland and Gardens.

Within the three and a half acres lies the grade one listed water mill which was used for producing corn. The water mill was retired in 1850 and lays to ruin within the grounds of Mill House (see pictures 2 and 3). We believe there is a scheme through the English Heritage organisation to rebuild the water mill.


The Raby Mere Pond measures a quarter of a mile long and was built over 300 years ago to drive the water mill for grinding corn. The mere is surrounded on three sides by woodland to the water's edge, the fourth side is a road above a dam. The water mill has not been used for many years, but the ruin still lies within the grounds of Mill House. Above it stands our property "Mill House" which we believe was built in 1661. Today, Raby Mere is one of the beauty spots in Wirral.

With no other properties alike, this Tudor property won't be around for long, immediate viewings are advised to avoid disappointment.
