Property Description

Full description

Offering outstanding location and great views, Mills Platt Farm, with 3 bedrooms and 3 small attic rooms, was built circa 1630 and is Grade 11 listed. It is ideally located 8 miles from central Bath, 1.1 miles from Box and 2 miles from Corsham, within easy reach of Stonehenge, Avebury and the M4. This cherished property was last sold 40 years ago. The living room contains a wonderful Tudor fireplace and chimney which has been lovingly restored, and is the defining feature of the property. This period building with two foot thick walls, has 8 mullion windows, exposed beams and a bread oven. In the courtyard stands a splendid two storey Threshing Barn of the same age which begs to become another dwelling, subject to relevant planning consents. The 1930’s Dairy, complete with milking stalls (even the chains are still in place), could be converted into stables, garages, or even a dwelling subject to relevant consents. There are also two pig sties. Secure gates and stone walls surround the house, garden and large courtyard. The adjoining 2 acre field has an ancient Spring, producing good quality mineral water that feeds into a large fish pond, located behind the barn. In the field is a 300 year old oak tree and some young walnut trees. By the pond grow mature specimen trees and ornamental bushes, creating a sanctuary for wildlife. The location of the property is truly idyllic. The house offers the best views all around from every window. Colerne Church can be seen across the valley and its bells can be heard bestowing a tranquil, timeless quality to life. The bridle path down below the house leads to lovely walks beside the brook in the valley. The property’s countryside location does not compromise convenience and community, however, as nearby Box offers all amenities. The price reflects the need for some modernization but the potential of the property is limitless: whether your passion be history, horses, horticulture or self-sufficiency, this place has it all.
