The Miller’s House is a handsome and impressive property dating back to 1904 and has been the current family home for the past thirty five years. Perfectly positioned in an elevated location The Miller’s House outlook really needs to be seen in person to appreciate the magical setting. It is secluded and looks out onto a stunning backdrop of a millpond and leat set amongst mature trees and surrounding a stunning and beautifully cared for garden. There is a bridge crossing the pond which then leads you to a ‘secret’ paddock adjoining the river.
The house is accessed through a pretty stone archway and porch from the garden. The entrance hall with original tiled flooring leads to the three main reception rooms, two of which lie adjacent to the hallway. The main reception room is enhanced by an open fire and large glazed doors leading out onto a sunny terrace, both rooms are beautifully light with sizeable sash windows overlooking the garden. A further reception room with wooden flooring leads on further into the kitchen, which again makes the most of the setting and looks out onto the stunning views.
A flight of stairs leads to a spacious landing which in turn leads into four double bedrooms all with large sash windows and lovely views and two bathrooms. An original oak staircase leads you to the lower ground floor; another light filled room with doors leading straight out onto the garden. The owner currently uses it as her studio but it has huge potential to be converted into further accommodation to suit requirements. Currently the space comprises of a garden room/studio, wine cellar, utility and two further storage rooms.
A little rowing boat is a charming and fun inclusion to the property and has remained in residence since the original build!
The garden reflects the owner’s green fingered passion; three decades of consistent attention and planning has culminated in an abundance of mature, mostly perennial, planting to include a variety of scented flora, shrubs and a selection of fruit trees. The current owner opens the gardens to the public, annually, during the National Garden Scheme. This well stocked garden is in close proximity to the house and a bridge leads from it to a mill pond and the extra land, woodland and river, frequented by the local ducks and the occasional kingfisher. The property has a double garage with plenty of space for two cars. The land in total is towards two acres-in summary The Miller’s garden, river, pond and woodland is simply enchanting.
