A spectacular converted mill house set in grounds of about one acre tucked away in a tranquil yet accessible location.
This fascinating converted mill house is believed to be some 400 years old in origin and was completely refurbished by the current owners who have been there since 2002. The extensive accommodation which totals some 5000 sq ft, offers an intriguing balance of traditional character and 21st Century functionality, perfect for the growing family. The adjoining mill complex was originally powered by the clear water from the adjacent stream that now forms part of the boundary. The Mill and the adjacent properties form a delightful peaceful hamlet with a sense of community.
