Full description

Tenure: Freehold

'Newton by Castle Acre' Mill was recorded in the Domesday Book on the same site as today, in the mid-Norfolk open countryside, astride the meandering river Nar. Currently The Mill provides a main residence and a stunning one bedroom Mill studio set over two floors. The property could be converted to form one larger main residence, subject to all necessary consents.

Viewing is essential to see much of the mills original character having been retained, with its millstones, water wheel and beautiful exposed beams. Up until the 1930's the mill was still being used to grist corn for animal feed. In 1967 The water mill was purchased from the Holkham Estate and in 1990 the house was rebuilt. Today, the property is an excellent example of embracing history and providing comfortable modernised living space.

Outside space provides extensive lawns, mature shrub and flower borders and beech hedging. The sluice gate that still works, is located within the grounds and there is a pretty riverbank to the rear aspect. To the front aspect are the stunning views over the Nar valley, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) reassuring for those who wouldn't choose for the views to change. Off road parking is provided to both the main house and the studio and there is an integrated, well-proportioned garage to the main house. 

LOCATION 'The Mill' is situated about a mile from the conservation village of historic interest, Castle Acre, renowned for its Norman castle, Cluniac priory and 14th century church.
