Situation - Tracey Mill lies on the outskirts of the market town of Honiton in an accessible location overlooking the Otter Valley adjacent to open farmland.
 
Honiton offers a range of independent shops and cafes and provides a good range of day to day amenities, which includes a Tesco superstore, schools, recreational facilities, and a railway station on the Exeter - London (Waterloo) line.
 
Just 9.5 miles to the south is England's first World Heritage Site, the Jurassic coastline at Lyme Regis, with further popular resorts along the Lyme Bay at Beer, Branscombe and Sidmouth.
 
The property is well located with easy access to the A373 Honiton - Cullompton and nearby A30 offering convenient travel to Exeter, M5 motorway and A303 eastwards. The University and Cathedral City of Exeter is approximately 17 miles to the west with an excellent range of shopping facilities, main line rail link to London (Paddington) and International Airport.

Description - Tracey Mill is a fascinating 17th century Mill House with the rustic charm of a restored working watermill. Whilst not in commercial use since the 1960s, the wheel, associated gears and workings are still operational and make a captivating and romantic focal point being carefully incorporated into the ground and first floor living spaces.
 
With a supply of fresh water via the mill leat, a former use of the property was that of a trout farm with a number of feature ponds below the original mill pond within the mature gardens. A single storey projection from the mill houses a useful and versatile range of garaging/workshops extending the total area of the whole to some 4,500 square feet.
 
The accommodation is bursting with features and contains the following:
Versatile range of garaging/ workshops
Kitchen/ Breakfast Room with Aga
Sitting Room with inglenook fireplace
Reception/ Dining Room with exposed stone walls, beamed ceiling and original mill features
The Wheelhouse is still home to the water wheel
Utility Area with Sauna, Cloakroom and Study/ Office
3 First Floor Bedrooms with en suite (including Master Suite with spa bath and walk in closet)
Further 2 Bedrooms with Jack and Jill Bathroom
Loft with large, high vaulted roof space
 
From the kitchen, steps and a panelled door open into the mill and the original 'machinery' floor, a room of immense character and romance with exposed beams, heavy structural timbers and the restored mill gearing including the wallower, pit and spur wheels. This historic piece of industry has been incorporated into an adjoining reception/dining room with exposed stone walls and beamed ceiling. This area also provides a link from the main house and mill to the workshop/garage space.

Outside - Double gates give access to a paved courtyard with parking for several vehicles to the side of the house Attached to the Mill is a single storey stone faced outbuilding housing two workshops, two utility work rooms and a sliding internal door to a large garage, itself with external up and over door. Double timber doors open from the rear of one of the workshops onto a timber bridge which crosses the mill pond to the mature rear garden, laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs surrounding the former trout ponds. A gravel footpath provides an attractive walk around the pond and beside the mill leat with various sluices and a small waterfall.
 
A pathway from the principal gardens and grounds leads alongside the mill pond past the Wheel Room and across the mill race into further gardens to the West of the house. These incorporate a generous block paved terrace, bordered by mature trees, hedgerow and the fenced Mill Race.
